    Is a general under honorable conditions discharge eligible to purchase discount tickets?

    Hi Melissa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! On behalf of my fellow panelists, and my own military family, I’d like to thank you or your family member for your service to and sacrifice for our country.

    At this time, Walt Disney World offers Military Promotional Theme Park Tickets and resort hotel discounts to eligible service members, which includes active and retired military personnel who are able to present a valid, active military ID. Unfortunately, honorably discharged veterans do not qualify for the current military offers. 

    Melissa, the good news is that there are often great deals posted on the Special Offers web page. There have been times where my family has used a Disney resort discount rather than the military hotel discount because it was just that good, so I encourage you to take a look and keep an eye on those, as they change all the time. You may also want to look into Shades of Green, the resort hotel for military personnel that is located on Walt Disney World property. In the past, they have had special times of year that they’ve been open to those with an honorable discharge who can show a Form DD-214. You can contact them at (407) 824-1403 with any questions; they provide fantastic customer service to military families planning magical vacations.

    I hope this helps! Please come back and see us if you have further questions as you do your planning and Disney dreaming, and don't forget to read the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news, dreamy photos, and planning tips.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
