    OKAY!! It's our very first time to Walt Disney World!! I am beyond excited to surprise our children with this trip but I have no idea where to start. We are military and getting out tickets that way but I have no idea where to start!! Help!

    Hi Tiffany!

    You have come to the right place! We LOVE helping guests like you plan their first trip! There are many great discounts for those who actively serve or have served in the military. Let's begin with the tickets. The discounted military ticket offer is either a 4-Day Ticket  with Park Hopper option included or a 5-Day Ticket with Park Hopper option included. You can find this offer by visiting this page: 2017 Military Discounts for Park Tickets. Tickets can be purchased at a participating U.S. military base ticket office, Shades of Green or any ticket window at the theme parks. 

    The next thing you want to do is plan you stay. There is an offer for discounted resort stays and these can be found be visiting this page: 2017 Military Discounts for Resorts.  I can tell you from personal experience as I too come from a military family, that these discounts are great money savers! 

    Did you know?: Staying at a Disney Resort comes with lots of benefits. My favorite is the Extra Magic Hours where Guests can enjoy the parks before they open to the general public and after they close to the general public. Additionally, Guests can make their FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before check-in when you have a resort reservation.  Be sure to download your My Disney Experience App for your smart phone!
