    Cost of 5 day park hopper pass between SUN/23JUN24 and MON/01JUL24 for retired military member (SCPO/USN/Retired) and spouse, who will be celebrating her 75th Birthday (FRI/28JUN24)?

    Welcome to planDisney, Debbie!

    I am happy to help with your question! From all of us at planDisney, thank you for your family's service! As a retired Veteran, your family member can purchase Disney Military Salute tickets from Shades of Green Resort. The current price for a 5-day Salute ticket with Park Hopper is $385, and a 5-Day Park Hopper Plus ticket is $415 (both ticket prices are tax-free and subject to change). The difference between Park Hopper and Park Hopper Plus is that you can visit Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park with Park Hopper Plus, and other various places at Walt Disney World Resort. Once you have decided which ticket works for your family, fill out the Advance Ticket Request Form and email it to You will receive an email with your tickets that will contain a Disney Reservation #. Download the My Disney Experience mobile app to your phone, and you will use that Reservation # to link tickets to all the guests traveling in your group. Once tickets are linked, make Theme Park Reservations, which are needed with Salute tickets.

    When you arrive at Walt Disney World, visit Guest Relations at one of the theme parks, or stop by the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. The service member will need to activate all the Salute tickets using his military ID. Once this step is done, you can enter the theme parks and have a magical visit! While at Guest Relations, be sure to ask about the military discount for Memory Maker, which gives you all the digital images of all the photos you take throughout your visit. At $98 for military (subject to change), it is a great deal!

    Celebrating milestone birthdays at Walt Disney World calls for a celebration! If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, pick up birthday and celebration buttons for everyone, or stop by City Hall at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park! Commemorate the birthday by taking your birthday button to Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe at Magic Kingdom and get it personalized (for a small fee!). Finally, if you have advanced dining reservations, you can request a Mickey Celebration cake to be brought to the table. 

    Debbie, I hope all of this information was helpful! Thank you for stopping by planDisney. I hope you all have the most magical visit!
