    Is there a military/veteran discount available for a one park one day ticket?

    Hey there, Ariel! Thanks for swimming by planDisney with this question as you head to the Most Magical Place on Earth in just a few days.

    Walt Disney World Resort offers several discounts to active duty and retired military members. For a single-day trip to Walt Disney World Resort, you can get a 1-day "Magic Your Way" ticket at your local base travel office or the military resort at Walt Disney World, Shades of Green. They are not sold directly on the Walt Disney World website or at the theme park gates.

    To purchase through Shades of Green, you can use the Ticket Request Form before your trip or head straight to the resort when you are in Orlando. You do not need a resort reservation to go to Shades of Green, but you will be asked for your military identification at the gate.

    One thing to note is that these tickets require a theme park reservation. These steps should help you add the ticket to your MyDisney account and make a reservation.

    To link your tickets on the My Disney Experience app:

    1. Open the menu (the "≡" at the bottom of the screen
    2. Select "My Tickets & Passes"
    3. Click on the "+" sign in the top right corner
    4. Follow the prompts under "Links & Passes"

    With your ticket linked, you can add a theme park reservation on the app by selecting the "+" in the circle at the bottom of the screen, which remains visible no matter what you are looking at on the app. Follow the prompts under "Make or Modify Theme Park Reservations."

    For future visits, I recommend checking the Special Offers information for additional discounts for military families. Currently, there are Disney Military Salute tickets for trips when you have a few more days available. There may also be discounts on hotels like this 2024 deal to stay in the magic

    I hope you can get this arranged easily and have a memorable day at Walt Disney World. And as you are finalizing your planning, you may want to check out the planDisney panelists' Top Tips for Staying Cool at Walt Disney World Resort.

    With any other questions, please come back by planDisney. We are here for you and thank your family for all of your service to our country. 

    Life is the Bubbles!
