    Does Disney give a military or first responder discount

    Hiya, Maria! Welcome to planDisney!

    First, let me truly say thank you for your service. Both service members and their families understand the meaning of dedication and sacrifice. As a military spouse, there's nothing better than quality time together, and I can't think of a better place to spend that time than at Walt Disney World Resort! You'll be able to enjoy everything that The World's Most Magical Celebration has to offer, from glowing Beacons of Magic to all the celebratory sweets! No matter where you go or what you do, there's sure to be magic waiting for you around every corner.

    Maria, Walt Disney World Resort loves to salute its military families with Special Offers on park tickets and select resort hotels. Eligible Service Members are active, retired, or 100% disabled veterans. If a member of your travel party is an Eligible Service Member, they can purchase Military Salute Tickets from Morale, Welfare, and Recreation on base or through Shades of Green. Personally, I like to order our tickets through Shades of Green. We love that our tickets will get mailed to us already activated and ready to go! Whichever way you purchase your tickets, you'll want to link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account. Once they're linked, make sure you make your theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system

    To book a room at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel with a Special Offer, all you need to do is call a Cast Member! The Cast Members will be happy to help you to know which resort hotels are available for your dates at a military rate. In my experience, it's great to be flexible with both your choice of hotels as well as your dates, which can open up a whole new world of possibilities! If this is what you'd like to do, I'd recommend calling right when the phone lines open at 7:00 AM EST since their kind of magic can be in high demand.

    Maria, prior to your trip, I'd also suggest that you take some time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app. A little like a magic wand, this app will help you to unlock everything that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer! You can check wait times for attractions, view park maps, and even mobile order food - talk about "phenomenal cosmic power!" 

    If you have any other questions, please fly your magic carpet our way again! After all, you've got a friend in me.

    See ya real soon!
