    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Logan!

    My military family is often asked how we are able to visit Walt Disney World so frequently, and my answer is always: because Disney makes it so affordable, easy, and magical for us to be together in The Most Magical Place on Earth! I’m so glad you reached out with your questions, because it’s always a pleasure to assist a fellow military member.

    Walt Disney World’s military promotional theme parks tickets are a great deal. Be sure to read the offer details to ensure you are eligible to purchase the tickets, and note that the current ticket promotion is good for travel dates through December 19, 2019. If you’re looking to travel in 2020, keep an eye out for next year’s promotion; usually, this promotion is announced in the fall.

    To purchase these military tickets in advance, visit the ticket office on your local base. When you purchase tickets on base, you receive an exchange certificate, which is printed with a number you can use to link the tickets to your My Disney Experience account. This enables you to make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your visit if you’ll be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, or 30 days in advance if staying off-property. If you purchase your tickets on base, you’ll bring the exchange certificates and your military ID with you to Guest Relations when you arrive, and they will activate the tickets.

    Another option is to purchase the tickets from Shades of Green, which is Walt Disney World’s resort for military members. There’s a form on their website you can use to purchase tickets in advance of your visit, or you can stop by Shades of Green when you arrive in Florida (but note that if you wait, you won’t be able to make FastPass+ selections in advance). Finally, you may also purchase tickets at a Walt Disney World ticket window. Be aware, though, that military tickets purchased on base or at Shades of Green are tax free, but you will pay tax at a Disney ticket window. You’ll need to show valid and active military ID to purchase and activate tickets on base, at Shades of Green, or at a Disney ticket window.

    Logan, you can purchase your tickets on base and still set up a Walt Disney World vacation package – it’s what’s known as a “ticketless package.” If you’ll be taking advantage of the military discounted room promotion, you’ll need to call (407) 939-1936 so a Reservations Cast Member can provide pricing and availability. You’ll also be able to add a Disney Dining Plan to your package at that time.

    I hope this helps you get on your way to planning your magical vacation! Please stop by and ask if you have any further questions, and, on behalf of my fellow Panelists, thank you for your service to our country.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
