    Hi we are meeting my son at his Air Force base in California and plan on going to Disneyland. Are there discount park passes available on base?

    Hi Darlene!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so excited that you found us hEAR, and I'm even more excited to be your planEAR today as my family just moved away from a SoCal Air Force Base where my husband was stationed. First of all, I'm so happy that you're going to travel out west to see your Airman! Please be sure to thank him for his service on behalf of everyone at planDisney. Secondly, I'm very happy to share that there are actually two great Disneyland Resort Theme Park Admission Ticket options for your family:

    ~ The first option is called the 'Disney Military Park Hopper Promotional Tickets'. That's a mouthful, but they are sometimes known as the 'Military Salute' tickets. These tickets are a fantastic price at either a 3-day or 4-day option, and because they include the Park Hopper ticket option you can visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park on the same Disney day. The big rule with these tickets is that each service member is only able to purchase up to six (6) of these per calendar year, and the tickets have to be validated at both the time of purchase as well as the first day of use. The good thing about these tickets is that they don't expire until mid-December; so if, for example, your son only has Saturday free to visit Mickey's house, but you'll be in town for a while, you could all go to the parks on Saturday together, he can validate the tickets, and then you (and anyone else in your party) can go back without him being present to use the other park days. Or, if you have any more trips to California planned for this year, you can save the remaining days to visit Disneyland then.

    ~ The second ticket option doesn't have a cool name, but it's the only other Disneyland ticket bases sell. These tickets can be purchased for up to 5 Disney days, with or without the Park Hopper option, and with or without the brand new Genie+ add-on, but do note that these tickets do expire 13 days after the first day of use. To see a price list for these tickets, Google the base name plus "ITT" or "Information, Tickets and Travel". The first or second listing should be for the base ticket office, and on their homepage you should find a link or PDF to the current ticket price sheet.

    Important Information: Guests who visit Mickey must make a Park Pass Reservation which notates which theme park you'll visit on what day. These reservations are available up to 120 days in advance, however, become very hard to find in the month leading up to your desired Disney day. Your best bet will be to have your son purchase your tickets as soon as possible and then either make the Park Pass Reservations for everyone or take photos of the tickets to send them to you, etc. hEARs a Park Pass Reservation Availability Calendar to help gauge your possible visit dates.

    I hope that this helped to plan an amazing visit with your own personal hero, Darlene! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
