    I’ve never been to Disney before, I’m looking to go in 2024. My 5 yr old nephew will be with me. I am military, I would like to know what benefits I have for being military..

    Welcome to planDisney, Sylvana! I'm so glad to be able to answer your question today. You've come at a great time because the Disney Parks Blog has just released a great article about all of the benefits available for servicemembers and their families, and I'm happy to walk you through how Walt Disney World Resort salutes and honors those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

    Military Salute tickets are available at a discount at participating U.S. military base ticket offices, and tickets for Walt Disney World Resort are also available in person or via email from Shades of Green, which we'll talk about more in a minute. The website currently lists dates available through 2023, but this is an ongoing program, and the information for 2024 should be available soon. 

    A great vacation doesn't just stop at tickets, though, right? Disney has made it even easier for military families to enjoy their well-deserved vacations by offering discounted resort stays for select nights, and eligible military families visiting Walt Disney World Resort can even take advantage of the beautiful Shades of Green resort, which is owned and operated by the Department of the Army. This resort is in an ideal location very close to Magic Kingdom Park, and the rooms are spacious, comfortable, and the perfect home away from home. 

    I hope this answers your question, Sylvana, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
