    My husband is an officer in the US Public Health Service. I know that we get discounts on tickets and rooms at the parks, but I am not seeing the PHS listed on the military page for Disney Cruise Line. Do we qualify for cruise military rates?

    Hi there, Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so very glad you sailed by with your question about planning a Disney Cruise Line vacation.  A Disney Cruise Line vacation is one of the best ways to make magical memories with your family that will last a lifetime!  A Disney Cruise Line vacation is perfect for Guests of all ages and everyone is guaranteed to find something for them to do while onboard or at port!

    Currently, Disney Cruise Line offers military rates for specific voyages, and those are regularly updated.  From my resEARch, these Special Military rates are available to retired and active U.S. Military personnel, including U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marines, U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. National Guard, U.S. Army Reserve and U.S. Department of Defense.  Unfortunately, I, too, am not seeing U.S. Public Health Service as a listed department that receives these special rates.  I would recommend contacting Disney Cruise Line directly at (800) 951-3532 to inquire, just to be certain.

    If you are looking for an alternate way to get a slight discount on a cruise reservation, I would also recommend looking for a Guaranteed Stateroom rate which is available on select voyages.  When you book a Guaranteed Stateroom rate, you don’t get to select your actual stateroom but instead choose a stateroom category and then your stateroom is assigned to you as your vacation gets closer.  Often these rates have a few other stipulations attached to them, but it’s an option you should look into as an alternative to the Military rates.

    Planning a Disney Cruise Line vacation can be so much fun, and we are more than happy to help answer any other questions you may have about booking a reservation or what to do once your vacation is booked!  Please come back with any other questions you may have!
