I’m confused as to where I go to buy these tickets. I’m a first responder (Police Officer) and veteran. I’ve tried going to vettix.org but they’re taking a bit to run everything.
When you say veteran do you mean retired military with military retiree ID?
If not, here are other discounts for non-retirees, see:
If you qualify you can buy them at your Base Ticket office or long distance from Shades of Green.
Can my father who is retired military buy these discounted tickets for me to use, even though I am not military? I know I can’t use a Freedom Pass. Also, are there any black out dates? Thanks.
The regular military discounted tickets can be used without the member.
No blackout dates that I am aware of.
Sarah C. says
can I, an active military member, purchase military discounted tickets for my family members to go to universal orlando without me or would I need to be present for them to use the tickets?
Yes you can. There are two types of mil Universal tickets though.
The highly discounted Freedom Passes – You must have your own and be there for activation.
And the slightly discounted regular military Universal tickets. These can be purchased and given to others to use without you.
“2-Park 3-Day Base (USF and IOA) $228.50 $218.75”
Does “Base” mean it is a one park per day or can we go from one park to the other. We don’t want volcano bay and I don’t see an option for park to park without it?
A base ticket is a single park per day, no hopping.
Have you considered the Freedom Pass? 2 Park Freedom Pass – $200 Adult/$195 Child – For the whole year!
Thanks for the quick response. We have our freedom passes for the year and have already used them once!!! We are headed back and wanted to take some family members so I was trying to see if we could find some discounts for them.
You bet, gotcha
Thanks for the information! I was wondering if Universal usually announces their military promotions around the same timeline as Disney (late September)? We are heading to Disney and Universal in late January and have been waiting anxiously for military promotion announcements.
No, sadly they wait till mid-December. It’s been around the 15th the last 3 years, before that they waited till early to mid-January!
How many regular military tickets can be bought at one time? Not the freedom tickets. My sons basketball team is looking at making a trip but we are trying every option available to us to keep cost down. Thank you in advance and thank you for all the wonderful information to supply to us. And most of all thank you for your service!!!!
Hi there Betty,
Thanks so much! I love doing it.
The regular military tickets are unlimited! You’ll be able to cover the whole team.

I’m not seeing USPHS commissioned corp eligibility for Universal, as Disney has. Is that correct?
Yes that is correct.
The Disney eligibility came about by a concerted effort by James at the Commissioned Officers Association of the USPHS in 2015. It involved numerous emails to Disney officials, James pointing out that Disney’s cruise ships proudly display signs stating that they work closely with the USPHS to ensure cleanliness, a FOIA request and Disney’s lawyers asking that the FOIA be cancelled which then lead to the benefit being extended to PHS & NOAA on 12 Jan 2016.
James and I communicated extensively during 2015 about this.
I suggest you contact the Commissioned Officers Association of the USPHS if you want to see what they can do.
