    Can honorably discharged disabled veterans get 2019 the salute special tickets at the gates of Disney world?

    Hi Michelle,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m glad you stopped by, and I’m guessing from your question that you (or a family member) are a veteran – so, on behalf of my own military family and my fellow Panelists, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

    Michelle, Walt Disney World Resort’s 2019 Military Promotional Tickets, also known as the Military Salute, are available to active and retired U.S. military personnel who hold valid and active military IDs. If you are a 100% Service Connected Disabled Veteran, with an ID card stating DAVPRM, you will be eligible for the 2019 Military Promotional Tickets. I encourage you to look at the eligibility information on the Offer Details for this particular promotion to see if the type of ID you hold is eligible, and if you have questions about your eligibility, please speak to a Cast Member in the Ticket department by calling (407) 939-7679. 

    If you are eligible for the Military Promotional Tickets, you may certainly purchase them by presenting your valid ID at a Walt Disney World theme park ticket window, but I always purchase ours on base or at Shades of Green (Walt Disney World's resort for military members), as they are not tax-free when purchased at the gate.

    If you find you are not eligible for the promotion, I encourage you to call Shades of Green at (407) 824-1403. The staff there are fantastic, and very knowledgeable about eligibility, types of ID, and the possible discounts available. Shades of Green does offer a "Salute to Our Veterans" in January and September, where honorably discharged veterans holding a DD-214 are eligible to stay at the resort. Please see their website or give them a call to learn more.

    Walt Disney World Resort also offers Special Offers throughout the year that may work well for your family. I’m sending you some pixie-dusted wishes that you find a great promotion! Please come back and see us if you have any more questions as you do your planning and Disney dreaming. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
