    My husband is retired military, and our daughter is planning a trip to Disney World in the next few days with her friends. How can we get/purchase military discount for a two day per copper pass for her?

    Hiya Colleen!

    Welcome to planDisney! Many thanks to your family for your service and sacrifice! I'm excited for your daughter and her friends to visit Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days! 

    There are two kinds of tickets that members of the military can purchase.  The first option is the Disney Military Salute tickets but they are only offered right now as 4, 5 or 6-Day tickets with or without the Park Hopper Option. I don't think this will work for you as you wanted a 2-day ticket. Also, one of the up to 6 Disney Military Salute tickets you are allowed to purchase must be used by an Eligible Service Member. I don't know if your husband is joining in on the fun but if he isn't then this won't work out for you. These tickets can be purchased at participating US military sales outlets such as a base.

    The option that I think will work for you is the Magic Your Way ticket. These are also available for sale at your local base but they have the flexibility of being purchased as 1 to 10 day ticket options. Shades of Green which is an Armed Forces Recreation Center right on Walt Disney World Resort property can sell these tickets through an online order form as well. These tickets don't require the person who is the Eligible Service Member to be present when being used. In addition, these tickets can be emailed to you which can be linked to your My Disney Experience Account. However, I cannot guarantee they will arrive before you leave. In my opinion, the safest solution is to visit your local base and request for the Magic Your Way Ticket. 

    I hope this helps and your family has a fabulous time! 

    Happy Planning!
