    My dad has a lifetime Merchant Marine card. Some places recognize that as military. Does Disney recognize that in regards to the military discount on rooms?

    Hiya, Katie! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy, I'm so excited you're making plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort this fall! You're coming at a wonderful time of year with so much to see and do. One of my favorite ways to ring in the season is with Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and I'm so glad to share that this special event is coming back this year! You will also be able to experience all of the fun offerings that come with The World's Most Magical Celebration. You won't want to miss checking out the Beacons of Magic in each of the parks, which light up the nighttime landscape in new and exciting ways!

    Katie, members of the US military are offered special rates on Disney Resorts Collection hotels and Disney Military Salute Tickets. Eligible Service Members are active, retired, or 100% disabled members of the US military. Unfortunately, this offer does not currently extend to Merchant Marines. But Hakuna Matata! No worries! I have a few options for you that I think will be just right for your upcoming trip.

    First, be sure to stay up-to-date on the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page! This page is constantly updating with new opportunities throughout the year. As these can be limited, it can be advantageous to hop on any special offers that may apply to you once they're released. I also make sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog which always seems to announce any exciting updates first! And if you'd like even more budgeting ideas, please visit us again. We'd be happy to give you all of our best tips!

    As you're putting the finishing touches of pixie dust on your magical trip, I have two more pieces of advice for you. First, be sure that you've made your Theme Park Reservations using the Disney Park Pass system. This is an important step to reserve the parks you wish to visit on each day of your trip. Also, take some time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app! A little like holding a magic wand in your hand, you'll be able to unlock everything Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. You'll be able to check wait times for attractions, view park maps, and - my favorite - mobile order food. This is a great way to minimize waits and maximize the fun!

    Katie, I hope I was able to help you with your question today. If anything else pops up, please fly your magic carpet our way again! After all - you've got a friend in me.

    See ya real soon!
