    are there pricing differences for military veterans and retirees?

    Hi Rachel, and welcome to planDisney. From one military family to another, we thank you for your family's service to our nation!

    Walt Disney World Resort offers some pretty magical discounts, which include the military discounts offered to service members who are on active duty, retired after 20+ years of service, and/or are 100% disabled. This discount also applies to members of the United States Public Health Service, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) members. The service members mentioned above qualify for the Disney Armed Forces Salute, which is either a 4 or 5-day ticket with additional perks (including Park Hopper, Water Parks & Sports, both of which are included with additional fees), discounts on rooms at select Disney Resorts and a discount on Memory Maker-A Disney PhotoPass product. 

    Rachel, if you or the service member in your family were honorably discharged, you can visit your local Leisure and Travel office on base, and purchase discounted Walt Disney World tickets. These are the same tickets you see at the parks, just at a slight discount, and no sales tax. You can also check out Shades of Green Resort, which is an Armed Forces Recreation Center Resort, and it is on Disney property (just a hop, skip, and jump away from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort!). There are months in the year that honorably discharged veterans qualify to stay there, check them out!

    Finally, if you wish to look at other special offers for Walt Disney World, there are several current offers, if you are a Disney+ subscriber or Disney Visa cardmember, there are some pretty magical discounts available to you! Have the most magical visit to Walt Disney World next month!
