    I am looking to celebrate my son's 4th birthday in disney 1/16/19-1/23/19. We are a military family and i see that there are discounted tickets for members thru 12/19/18. Are there any discounts for military members in 2019?

    Hi Amanda!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm a Military Wife too, and I love and appreciate so much how Disney shows their gratitude and thanks to U.S. Service Members through these specially priced Theme Park Tickets as well as special Disney Resort Hotel rates. I'm happy to share that my Air Force family has been visiting Walt Disney World Resort with these special offers since 2012. The terms and conditions (new price, any blackout dates, any changes - like it used to be a four-day ticket but now you can choose between a four or five day option, etc) for the upcoming calendar year are usually announced sometime in late September or early October of the current year, so keep checking back on the Special Officers, Deals & Discounts page for the info when it's released. Also find and like your base/post MWR or Ticket and Travel Office Facebook page as they'll usually make an announcement when the new offers are released.

    Once released, you'll be able to buy the new tickets for the upcoming year immediately. However, your base may not have the tickets in stock. My last base was a few hours away so they always had tickets on hand, but my current base is across the country, so it takes a few weeks. Your best bet to get your tickets in enough time to book your FastPass+ reservations in advance would be to reach out to Shades of Green, which is a military-owned resort hotel on Disney Property. They're able to sell these tickets, which will still be free of sales tax, through a few back and fourth emails (they have to verify your eligibility) faster than some bases can.

    Please let me know if you have any other Military + Walt Disney World Resort Questions, Amanda, and We'll See Your Family in 2019!
