    Good afternoon. I am looking to visit for the FIRST TIME in December of 2022. What military/veteran discounts do you have for lodging?

    Hi Steven! Welcome to planDisney.

    It is always a pleasure to assist a fellow military family with their Walt Disney World Resort planning, but a first visit calls for extra pixie dust. I'm delighted to hear you're planning your very first Disney vacation in 2022 and your friends here at planDisney are here to help every step of the way.

    If you are active duty or retired military, you are eligible for the 2022 military discount on select Disney Resorts Collection hotel stays. I recommend taking a look at the Offer Details to confirm eligibility; you will need to show a valid U.S. military ID upon check-in. To find out which resort hotels have availability under the military rate for your vacation dates, you'll need to call (407) 939-7830 to speak with a friendly Cast Member. My biggest piece of advice when taking advantage of this discount is to be flexible - not every hotel will be available at the discounted rate, but there are some great deals to be had. 

    If you're not eligible for the above discount, I recommend taking a look at Shades of Green. They are the resort hotel for military members on Walt Disney World Resort property, and you may be eligible to stay there. It's a lovely resort with spacious rooms and a fantastic location.

    Steven, I recently shared my top tips for making the most of the military benefits at Walt Disney World in this Disney Parks Blog article. I hope it helps with your planning, and I'm happy to help if you have additional questions; if you'd like, you can send your questions directly to me.

    I hope you have the BEST time on your first visit! The planDisney Panelists shared our advice for selecting the perfect Disney Resorts Collection hotel in this Panel Extra. Planning a first visit is so much fun, and we're here to help you with every step in the planning process. Enjoy it all, and we will see you real soon!

    Wishing you much magic,
