Are you interested in knowing if you qualify for Disney Military Discounts? Do you want to know if you have the right ID?
Below is a chart showing the IDs that Disney accepts for veteran’s eligibility for the Disney Armed Forces Salute and regular military discounted Magic Your Way tickets from your local base ITT Office or Shades of Green.
But first, yes I know there are new IDs, no need to tell me that my page is out of date or wrong! Neither Disney or Shades of Green have updated their written or pictorial eligibility. Until they do I can’t update what’s here. But know this, the ID’s just look different, they don’t function differently and the actual eligibility hasn’t changed…
In order to qualify for Disney’s Armed Forces Salute and Shades of Green, the military owned and operated resort on Walt Disney World property you need to be a 100% service connected disabled veteran AND have the required ID.
Your VA benefits card to Driver’s License with some sort of Veteran logo are not what you’ll need for proof of eligibility. You’ll need a military issued ID card, either a DD Form 1173 or 2765 these are the tan ID cards. The ID would need to have the DAVPRM (Disabled Veteran Permanent) code on it.
In order to obtain a new military ID you may request a form, DD-1172, which is a letter signed by the Director of your nearest Veterans Affairs Regional Office, that shows you are 100% total and permanently service connected disabled.
Take this letter, and your latest DD Form 214 to the ID Card Office at the nearest military base, where you will be issued your military ID Card. Your spouse, and children age 8 to 21 (or 26 if in college, enrollment proof required) can also be issued their dependent ID Cards, if you show your marriage license and children’s birth certificates.
The two programs you’d be eligible for as a 100% service connected disabled veteran with the DAVPRM code are:

- Disabled Veterans are Eligible for Disney Military Discounts
