    Does Disney give a military discount to disabled veterans?

    Hi Barbara! Welcome to planDisney. I am happy to help answer your question!

    On behalf of planDisney, thank you for your family's service! Walt Disney World Resort has several military rates, and I'll go over all of them. First, are theme park tickets. Depending on the disabled status, there is the Disney Military Salute, which Veterans with 100% disabled status qualify for. If disabled status falls below 100%, they can purchase discounted Magic Your Way theme park tickets. Both ticket types can be purchased at your local military base, or through Shades of Green Resort. These two ticket types also require theme park reservations. Salute ticket holders will need to "activate" these tickets before entering the theme parks, which can be done at Guest Relations (located at the entrances to all four theme parks) or at Disney Springs.

    The second discount I want to go over is military rates at resorts. Select Disney Resort hotels have rooms available at the military rate. Call the Disney Resort hotel reservations line to add this rate to your reservation. These rooms fill up fast! In the past, I have been able to stay at Club Level at Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort and both Disney's Port Orleans Resorts with these rates. If your disabled status is below 100%, check out Shades of Green Resort. This AFRC resort on Walt Disney World property is near the Magic Kingdom area and is a great option for military families. Shades of Green guests also qualify for Early Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours on select dates. 

    The final discount available is for Memory Maker. Memory Maker is a Disney PhotoPass product, where you will receive all photos taken during your visit to Walt Disney World, including character meets, attractions, and any taken with photographers at the theme parks. If you are a Salute ticket qualifier, you can purchase Memory Maker for $98 (subject to change). To receive this discount, stop by Guest Relations and you can buy it there. 

    Barbara, I hope all of this information was helpful! Thank you once again for visiting planDisney. It was magical assisting you today, and please return if you need additional help planning your visit. You've got a friend in me!

    Happy Planning!
