    My mother in law is retired military and we were wondering if she would have to make the reservations in order to receive military discount or would it be okay for me to make the reservations under my account. We are looking at the family suites.

    Hiya, Stephany! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're planning a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of year! I'd love to help you make your reservations so you can continue to plan for your magical vacation. I also want to extend a sincere thank you to your mother-in-law! As a military spouse, I understand that our service members know the meaning of dedication and commitment. There's nothing better than spending quality time together, and I can't think of a better place to spend that quality time than at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Stephany, Eligible Service Members are offered special rates on Disney Resorts Collection hotels and Military Salute Tickets. Eligible Service Members are active, retired, or 100% disabled members of the military and their spouses. They are able to purchase up to six Military Salute Tickets. A valid military ID is required upon check-in and the service member (or spouse) must stay in one of the rooms. 

    Your mother-in-law will be able to purchase Military Salute tickets either through her local base or through Shades of Green. Personally, we like to order our tickets through Shades of Green because they arrive activated and ready to go! No matter which way you purchase your tickets, be sure to link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account. You'll also want to make sure that you make your Theme Park Reservations through the Disney Park Pass system! This is the best way to reserve the parks you wish to visit on each day of your trip.

    To book a Disney Resorts Collection hotel at a military rate, your mother-in-law just has to speak to a Cast Member by calling (407) 939-7830. They will be able to let her know which hotels are available with a promotional rate during your desired dates! Pro tip: try to be flexible with your dates and hotels. Sometimes you can open a whole new world of possibilities just by shifting the dates by a day or two!

    Stephany, I hope I was able to answer your question today. If anything else pops up, please visit us again! After all, you've got a friend in me.

    Faith, trust, and pixie dust -
