    My boyfriend is an injured military veteran, but due to no longer being an active duty service member and his access card expiring to get onto base, we are a bit confused as to how to get access to the military discounted tickets? Can we still get them?

    Hiya, Becca! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're planning a magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! I'd also like to thank your boyfriend for his military service. As a military spouse, I know that service members and their families truly understand the meaning of commitment and dedication. To me, the best gift is quality time and I can't think of a better place to spend that time together than at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Becca, Eligible Service Members have access to special offers on Disney Military Salute Tickets and select Disney Resorts Collection hotels. An Eligible Service Member is an active, retired, or 100% disabled member of the military. If this situation applies to your boyfriend, he would be able to purchase Disney Military Salute Tickets on his local base or by purchasing them through Shades of Green. Personally, my husband and I like to order our tickets through Shades of Green because they arrive to us already activated and ready to be used! If you order your tickets either of these ways, you'll want to make sure that you link them to your My Disney Experience account and make your Theme Park Reservations with the Disney Park Pass system! In order to see what Disney Resort hotels are available with a military rate during your desired dates, all you'd need to do is call a Cast Member at (407) 939-7830. They will be happy to walk you through the process! 

    If this doesn't seem to be the right fit for your boyfriend, Hakuna Matata! No worries! I have another option for you. Becca, you can also see if there are any promotional rates that apply to your trip by checking out the Special Offers page. For example, there is currently an offer for Disney+ Subscribers at select Disney Resort hotels for most dates through September 30, 2022! I like to check back on this page periodically as it gets updated throughout the year. And if you'd really like to stay in the know, I'd suggest keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all updates and announcements! 

    I hope I was able to help you with your question today, Becca! If anything else pops up, please visit us again. After all, you've got a friend in me!

    To infinity and beyond!
