    do you offer military discounts?

    Hi Patricia!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you found us hEAR. Mine is a military family too. I'm happy to be your planEAR today!

    Yes, I am so happy to say that there are two different Military Discounts available for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Theme Park. The first is called the Military Promotional Park Hopper Ticket (although it's sometimes known as the Military Salute) and it's available as either a 3-day or 4-day option. My favorite part about this ticket is that while there are just a few blockout dates when it can't be used, you don't have to use all of the park days in one vacation. You could use two or three days for a visit in the spring and then come back after Disneyland is donned in its Holiday best. Do note that these tickets expire in Mid-December in the yEAR they were purchased. And these tickets do have a list of eligibility rules, which are:

    ~ Each family can only purchase a max of six (6) tickets per year, and either the Service Member or the Spouse must be in the party visiting with these tickets.
    ~ These tickets can only be purchased by an Eligible Service Member or their Spouse, but not both.
    ~ Eligible Service Members are Active Duty or Fully Retired members of the Military, including the National Guard, Reservists, the Coast Guard, Space Force, the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service, and the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. 
    ~ These tickets are also available to those with 100% service-connected disabilities.
    ~ At the time of this writing, these tickets can only be purchased at U.S. Military Ticket Sales offices. (If you're having trouble tracking down military tickets where you live, here's a link of what else can be done.) 
    ~ There might even be Military rates available at the three Disneyland Resort Hotels.

    If you don't fall into any of the above eligibility-wise, check to see if you are eligible for an updated VHIC (Veterans Health Identification Card) from the VA. The new John McCain National Defense Authorization Act of 2019 opened up base access to most Veterans to use base facilities like the Commissary but also the base ticket office. This includes Purple Heart recipients, POWs, all Veterans with service-connected disabilities (rated 0% - 90%), and even approved and designated VA Primary Family Caregivers. However, you have to make sure that you have an updated VHIC first. Once you do, you'll find that most military ticket sales offices sell all of the different Disneyland tickets (1-day 1-park, 3-day Park Hoppers, 5-day with Genie+, etc) at a nice discount. (To get an idea of what these ticket prices would be, Google 'Latitudes Travel Camp Pendleton' and look on the right side of the screen for a price sheet PDF.)

    I hope that this helped to plan some upcoming Disneyland fun in the Southern California sun for you and your family, Patricia. Be sure to follow the official planDisney Instagram account for all kinds of tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort questions, We're All Ears!
