    We are heading to Disney World on January 20, 2018 and my husband is a Disabled Veteran. Are there discounts on tickets available at the gate for us?

    Hi Pamela!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, and how exciting that your trip is just around the corner!

    In order to purchase military discounted park tickets, you have a couple of options. If you visit your local military base, you should be able to purchase tickets from the base ticket office. They will be able to show you all the different ticket options available and help you choose the best ticket for your needs. An advantage of purchasing your tickets locally is that you’ll have them in hand and will be able to log into My Disney Experience and link the tickets to your account, which will allow you to book your FastPass+ reservations sooner. The other option is to wait until you’re on Walt Disney World Resort property and stop by Shades of Green. My family recently purchased tickets there and found their ticket office staff to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful. If you stop by Shades of Green, take a minute to check out their gift shop, which includes lots of cute military-themed Disney merchandise!

    Once you have your tickets in hand, visit any park ticket window, where a Cast Member will activate the tickets and get you all set.

    As a bonus tip, we are loving Disney’s current offer of discounted Memory Maker for military families. Be sure to ask about current pricing at Guest Services. I love the convenience of stopping by PhotoPass photographers in the parks to get family shots to preserve the memories from your magical time together.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
