    My father in law is a veteran, are there Disney military discounts he qualifies for?

    Hiya, Melanie! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Oh boy, I'm so excited to hear that you're planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth with your family! I'd love to help you make this trip practically perfect in every way. I'm happy to let you know that Eligible Service Members are offered Special Offers at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Eligible Service Members are considered active, retired, or 100% disabled veterans and their spouses. If your father-in-law is an Eligible Service Member, he can look into purchasing up to six Military Salute Tickets for his vacation! He can purchase theme park tickets through Morale, Welfare, and Recreation on base or through Shades of Green. As a military spouse, I really like purchasing our tickets through Shades of Green because they arrive already activated and ready to go. Whichever way he purchases his tickets, he'll want to make sure he links the tickets to his My Disney Experience account. Then, he will need to make theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass service!

    Walt Disney World Resort also offers special offers on select Disney Resorts Collection hotels. All he has to do is call a Cast Member to see which resorts are available on his desired days! In my experience, being flexible on resorts and the dates of your trip can often open up a whole new world of possibilities, and even help you find a few new favorites - true story! If he would like to call a Cast Member, I'd recommend having him call right at 7:00 AM EST when phone lines open since their type of magic can sometimes be in high demand.

    Melanie, I think you and your travel party will enjoy downloading and exploring the My Disney Experience app while you wait for your magical vacation to begin! A little like holding a magic wand in your hand, this app will help you to unlock everything that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. You can check wait times on attractions, view park maps, and even mobile order food. As someone who often has a rumbly in her tumbly, I love knowing that my snacks and meals will be ready and waiting for me!

    If you have any other questions, I hope you fly your magic carpet back our way soon. Remember - you've got a friend in me!

    Faith, trust, and pixie dust -
