    My father is a honorably discharged Marine Corps. Veteran, is he eligible for a discount on theme park tickets?

    Hi Caitlin, and thanks for stopping by with your question. From all of us at planDisney, we thank your father for his service! 

    At this time, the Disney Military tickets (formerly known as the Armed Forces Salute) apply only to active duty service members, retirees, and 100% disabled veterans. They also apply to Commissioned Corps of the US Public Health Service (USPHS), and National Oceanic Atmospheric Association (NOAA) members, both active and retired. However, your dad can purchase Magic Your Way tickets at a slightly discounted rate at his nearest military installation, or from Shades of Green resort. As a DoD resort, Shades of Green does offer a "Salute to Our Veterans" program, where Veterans have the opportunity to vacation at Shades of Green on select months throughout the year. 

    Your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is just around the corner, which means it's time to begin thinking about those dining reservations! If you want a sit-down meal with characters, check out Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT. If you want a quick bite on the go in between attractions, Satu'li Canteen at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park is one of my family's favorites. You'll also be arriving just as EPCOT welcomes back one of my favorite festivals, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival on February 28th. I hope you enjoy seeing all the beautiful topiaries, and dining at all the wonderful outdoor kitchens throughout EPCOT, and if you are looking for a fun family activity, check out the scavenger hunt that will take you throughout the park! To keep up with the latest information about Flower & Garden, make sure you follow planDisney on Instagram (@plandisneypanel), and the Disney Parks Blog. 

    Thank you for stopping by again, Caitlin. Feel free to reach out to planDisney again with any other questions before your visit. The magic is calling!
