    We are a military family of 8 and are planning to visit the parks in October. I know Disney offers discounts on their tickets. Is there a limit?

    Thank you for your family’s service, Mari! I know you are looking forward to your family’s fall vacation, and I’m happy to tell you about Disney’s  military Salute Ticket, which may be the option for you. My brother is an active member of the Coast Guard, and when we stayed at Shades of Green last Spring, he was able to purchase our family Salute Tickets right at Shades of Green’s attraction ticket desk, which were 4 or 5 day Park Hopper tickets to all four of Disney’s Theme Parks. (We also had the option for Park Hopper Plus, but we didn’t need it!)

    With an active or retired military ID, the service member can purchase up to six (6) 4 or 5 Day Military Promotional Tickets. In addition, one of the six tickets must be used by the Eligible Service Member or their spouse. Unlike regular Walt Disney World tickets, the military salute tickets expire December 19, 2017, so if you return later this year, make sure to visit the parks before then. The 2017 price point for a 4-day Park Hopper at Shades of Green is $222.58, tax included, so it’s a fabulous deal in celebration of our U.S. service members.

    After purchasing the tickets, I linked them up to our MagicBands from a previous recent trip (the batteries last around 2-3 years) via My Disney Experience account and zipped around the parks. Shades of Green, while on Disney Property, has it's own transportation system, but is a wonderful and welcoming place for military families. I wouldn’t give up the memories of that trip with my brother for anything. It was extremely special to have him home from his station to have fun with us! I hope you are able to make the same wonderful memories on your upcoming vacation. ~Lindsey P.
