    How much is a discount for vaterans

    Welcome to planDisney, Jose!  

    Thanks for asking about discounted theme park tickets for Veterans at the Walt Disney World Resort. Most importantly, thank you or your family members for their service which may qualify for these special offers. Walt Disney was a staunch patriot, and his values are reflected in special offers for military families and experiences at the parks honoring American history. At this time, there is a distinction between Veterans of the United States Military and those with an Active or Retired status. I’m honored to share the differences in what’s available for savings on your next visit.  

    If you are Active or Retired, you qualify for the 4- or 5-day Disney Military Salute theme park ticket offer. These must be purchased at a U.S. Military Base ticket office and can be used by the eligible member and/or spouse and family (up to six tickets). Once purchased, you must also activate these tickets in person showing your valid U.S. Military identification at Guest Relations before entering a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Veterans who are not active or retired may purchase discounted Magic Your Way tickets through Shades of Green, an Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC) located on property. You can purchase the exact number of theme park days desired from their website and receive tickets in the mail. Please note these tickets are already activated so you can head straight to the front gate to enter your first theme park when you begin your vacation. Veterans also qualify to stay at Shades of Green; my family has enjoyed this resort for its large rooms, proximity to Magic Kingdom, and great rates.  

    You are not alone in inquiring about special discounts for Veterans, Jose. Please see another answer I recently shared with some additional details. I’ve also shared my favorite patriotic experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort if your family would like to incorporate those into your next visit.

    Your military family is as welcome as can be, and I thank you again for your service to our great nation. Please let us know how else we can help you make the most of this amazing vacation; we also answer questions every day in Spanish if you prefer.  

    With gratitude,
