    Is there a military discount for Genie + or some other offer for military to skip the lines? My son is in the Air Force and we are using the Military Salute ticket package. Thanks!

    Hi Rebecca, welcome to planDisney!

    As a proud military daughter-in-law and granddaughter, I know a proud military mama when I see one. Thank you for raising a son who believes in the importance of service to country and magic. Walt Disney World Resort is the practically perfect destination for your family to celebrate both. 

    The Walt Disney Company offers a variety of discounts for military service members and their friends and family. My family couldn't visit Walt Disney World Resort as often as we do without the star-spangled Disney Military Salute Ticket offer. There is not currently a military discount on Disney Genie+ service, so my best tip for cutting costs and your wait times is to prioritize Disney Genie+ service at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios. There are less Genie+ Lightning lane attractions available at EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and, in my experience, the standby queues at these parks are quite reasonable, especially if you arrive at park opening.

    If you're hoping to capture some magic moments together for this year's holiday card, Rebecca, there is a tremendous savings on Memory Maker for Eligible Service Members. The special Memory Maker price for military is only offered in-person at Guest Relations windows or at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. My family makes this purchase when we activate our Disney Military Salute Tickets with a Guest Relations Cast Member. Valid military ID must be shown.   

    If you happen to be in Magic Kingdom Park one evening, I encourage your family to experience the Flag Retreat Ceremony together, which takes place at 5:00 p.m. each day. This ceremony always fills my heart with pride and gratitude, and I will think of you and your son the next time I see it.

    Choose magic,
