Military Disney Tips Exclusive Information
Special Military Purchase Details and Procedures!
Dates for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party often sell out in advance!
But military members and their families must wait until they arrive to purchase their tickets directly from Disney.
So how can military families use this discount at all?
Shades of Green
Shades of Green will ship these special tickets to you.
How to do this:
Contact the Shades of Green Ticket Office by email at: [email protected]
Let them know that you want to purchase the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party tickets (and any other types of tickets needed).
They will send you a price list and order form. Just fill out and send back.
There is a fee ($10) to FedEx the tickets to you. You must be home to sign for the package.
Shades of Green cannot sell tickets for sold out nights!
Walt Disney World
Since 2012 Disney World has sold tickets for sold out nights to military members because they required you to show your ID to buy from them. This started before Shades of Green started shipping tickets. And is now not really needed except to avoid the shipping cost.
This procedure has been in place every year from 2012 to 2018. MDT has not yet verified it for 2019! (we will by mid May)
Below is our standard info on this procedure for your consideration, but at this time we recommend using Shades of Green!
Walt Disney World will sell the military tickets for sold out events even when regular tickets are unavailable. This is because these military discount tickets are only available in person if you want to buy from Disney!
How to purchase your Military Priced Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Tickets:
If your desired date is sold out you can still buy your tickets.
So, in review:
Note: In the past an occasional cast member working the window has been unaware of this policy. In that case just ask to speak to a Lead, Supervisor, or Manager to resolve the situation.
After you attend the party, please remember to come back and take our WDW After Hours Parties Survey! This will help us track how WDW is donig in implementing this particular discount.
All dates, prices, and details subject to change by Disney.
