    I'm a disabled veteran and my wife and two kids really wanna give to Disney. Problem is like most is the price, aby suggestions or discounts so I can make their request?

    Hi there, Emelia! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Oh boy! When it comes to trips, I enjoy planning my vacations almost as much as being on vacation. I would love to help you make some budget-friendly plans as you prepare to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth

    But first, I want to truly thank you for your service. As a military spouse, I know that service members and their families understand the meaning of dedication and sacrifice. There's nothing more important than quality time with loved ones and I can't think of a better place to spend that time together than at Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Now, on to the planning! First, it would be a good idea to check out the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page prior to booking your vacation. This is the best way to stay up-to-date on the most current promotions for Walt Disney World Resort. For example, at the time of this writing, there is a promotion for vacations that are taking place at select Disney Resort hotels in spring and early summer! This page tends to be updated seasonally and I would suggest checking back often.

    Next, I'd recommend taking a look at the Value Resort Hotels at Walt Disney World Resort! These are all wonderful options that offer comfortable rooms, great transportation, and colorful theming at a great rate. My personal favorite is Disney's Pop Century Resort - I love the ability to quickly hop on the Disney Skyliner

    Last, it's also important to know that Eligible Service Members have special offers on both Theme Park Tickets and select Disney Resort hotels. Eligible Service Members are active, retired, or 100% disabled veterans and their spouses. You can purchase Military Salute Tickets from your local base or through Shades of Green. Personally, my husband and I prefer to order our tickets through Shades of Green because they get mailed to us already activated and ready to be used. No matter how you purchase your tickets, you'll want to make sure you make Theme Park Reservations through the Disney Park Pass system

    If you're interested in staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel at a military rate, all you need to do is call a Cast Member. They'll be able to let you know which hotels are available at this rate during the dates of your trip. Pro tip: try to be flexible on your dates and the Disney Resort hotels you're interested in. This can open up a whole new world of possibilities and is how we found some of our all-time favorites - true story! Emelia, it looks like you're planning a visit in 2023, and the military rates for next year have not been released yet. While there are never guarantees of special offers, these types of promotions for hotels and tickets tend to appear in the fall. Keep an eye out on the Special Offers page or on the Disney Parks Blog which always has the most current information!

    I'm sending you all the faith, trust, and pixie dust!
