    Were military coming from Schofield Barracks, HI 2 children ages will be 1 and 3 at the time. Will be there about 8 days. How do we go about getting military discounts. Also, how do you get a character breakfast, will be celebrating my daughters 1st bday.

    Aloha Jacklyn!

    How exciting to be able to celebrate your baby's first birthday at Walt Disney World! In order to book a character breakfast, you can either call 407-WDW-DINE or go reserve online. Advanced Dining Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.

    Walt Disney World has some great offers for military families. We've loved being able to take advantage of them. The first discount is a 4-day Armed Forces Salute Park Hopper Ticket for $138 each (you can add the Water Park Fun & More Option for $27). 

    You have a couple of options when it comes to purchasing the discounted tickets. Your local MWR/ITT office may have the tickets available for purchase (not all do and they can sell out of their stock). You can also purchase them at the Shades of Green Resort located on Walt Disney World property. Both of those options will save you from paying sales tax.

    Alternatively, you can purchase the tickets at any ticketing window at the Theme Parks or Water Parks. You will have to pay sales tax at these locations.

    We typically purchase our tickets at the Guest Relations location in Downtown Disney. We tend to visit Downtown Disney on our arrival night and just stop by Guest Relations to grab the tickets so we're ready to hit the parks the next day!

    Eligible guests are also able to take advantage of great resort discounts. These are subject to availability, but you can find discounts of up to 40% on select Walt Disney World Resort accommodations.

    You must call Walt Disney World at 407-939-7830 in order to book rooms. For more info click over to the Walt Disney World Military Special Offers page.

    Mahalo for your question and please come back and see me again if you have any other questions.  I love helping fellow military families plan their magical vacations!

    Have a Disney Day!
