    We have a trip planned May 5th through the 10th. My wife was medically discharged from the army, so no military ID. Would she qualify for any discounts with her DD-214?

    Hi Dan, and welcome to planDisney.

    I’m a military spouse too, and I’d like to thank your wife for her service to our country. My husband is currently deployed overseas, so I truly understand and appreciate the service and sacrifice of our military members and their families.

    The Walt Disney World Resort's 2021 military promotional special offers are for eligible active duty, reserve, and retired veterans with active military IDs. Unfortunately, at this time, a DD-214 without military ID is not considered acceptable proof of eligibility for these military special offers. I do have some suggestions for potentials savings on your upcoming visit, Dan.

    Shades of Green is the resort hotel on Walt Disney World Resort property for our military service members. While eligibility to stay there is similar to Disney’s eligibility requirements, they do open up special offers from time to time, so it’s worth taking a look at their website. I also recommend calling and speaking with one of their team members; they can be reached at (407) 824-1403. The staff at Shades of Green can point you in the direction of any special discounts for which you may be eligible. 

    I also suggest taking a look at the current Special Offers. These offers change often, and I have found some great deals on that page. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to see if any special offers are released between now and your visit dates.

    Have so much fun in May, Dan! Spring is a fantastic time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, and I hope you’re planning to visit the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. My family enjoys the various scavenger hunts and activities throughout the festival, and we’re already dreaming about all the delicious food and drink kiosks. 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Please come back and see us if you think of any further questions as you count down the days.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
