    Hello. My mom is a veteran and I was wondering what the process is for getting tickets with the discount?

    Hiya Samantha,

    Welcome to planDisney! As the child of a retired United States Air Force Colonel, I would like to thank your mother for her service to this country. Service men and women (and their families) sacrifice so much, including time with their loved ones. It is fantastic that Walt Disney World Resort offers a way for them to experience a magical vacation with their families at a special price.

    Based on your question, you are seeking more information on Walt Disney World Resort’s Military Salute Ticket promotional offer. These special offered 4-Day or 5-Day Theme Park tickets can be purchased by Eligible Service Members and their Spouses from their local duty station or the Shades of Green website. I’m not able to confirm if your mother is included within the eligible service member criteria from your question alone, but if she is either a retired veteran (with 20+ years of service) or a 100% total and permanent, service-connected disabled veteran, she would be considered eligible. Eligible service members also include active members of the US military, Reservists, National Guard, US Space Force, the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service (PHS), and the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) at this time. If your mother is eligible to purchase Disney Military Salute Tickets, she would be able to purchase up to six Theme Park tickets per year which can be used by your entire family (provided that your mother is present at both the time of purchase and time of use of the tickets).

    Before I let you go, Samantha, I have one last tip. I mentioned that your mother could purchase the Disney Military Salute tickets at her local duty station or Shades of Green earlier. One of my dear friends and military spouse Michelle always recommends purchasing through Shades of Green. Theme Park Tickets purchased through Shades of Green arrive activated and ready to be used, saving your mother time at the park entrances. Just make sure that after she buys them that she links the tickets to a My Disney Experience account and makes Disney Park Pass Reservations for her visit as well.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.

Hey Y'all! I’m Ashley and I live in Texas. My family and I love trying out the yummy snacks (DOLE Whip anyone!) and taking full advantage of our resort days. When we are not piloting the Millennium Falcon, exploring Kilimanjaro Safaris, or watching fireworks, you can find me planning our next adventure to Walt Disney World! I am so excited that you are planning a trip, and I look forward to helping you dig a little deeper and find the magic in all of the wonders of Walt Disney World Resort. Learn More About Ashley
