Many US Military Bases have a Ticket and Travel Office where you can purchase both Walt Disney World and Disneyland tickets.
Base Ticket Office prices for the Regular Military Discount Tickets are usually very comparable to those at the Shades of Green Ticket Office.
Here’s a post on why prices vary.
There can be both advantages and disadvantages with buying your tickets on base prior to your departure.
The advantages are:
- If you plan to use Disney World’s FastPass Plus system, you’ll need your tickets in hand 30 to 60 days prior to your arrival date depending on where you are staying. See this page for more info on FP+ and Disney’s other new technology.
- By buying your tickets ahead of time, you can spread out the cost of your vacation by paying for tickets ahead. Or if using Regular Military Discounted Magic Your Way tickets you can buy your tickets prior to an anticipated ticket price increase.
The disadvantages are:
- Many Base Ticket Offices carry only a limited selection of tickets i.e. type or number of days. But they can most likely order what you need (it may take a week or two to do so).
- Plan on stopping by the ticket office at least 2 to 3 weeks before you’d like to have the tickets in hand in case they need to order them!
- If you don’t have enough time for them to order your tickets, you’ll have to buy them once you arrive at Disney. Disney Armed Forces Salute can be purchased there from Disney or Shades of Green. Regular Military Discounted Magic Disney tickets can only be purchased from Shades of Green. Walt Disney World will add sales tax.
- Also Shades of Green’s Stars and Stripes Passes are not available at bases, only at Shades of Green (Walt Disney World’s Military Resort).
