    I am the widow of a disabled combat vet who passed away due to his service disability. Do you offer any veterans discount for someone like me? I would like to visit at the end of September.

    Hi there, Cheryl!

    First things first. I want to thank you for the sacrifices you and your family made so your husband could serve this great country. I'm so sorry he paid such a high price for his dedication and commitment.

    Walt Disney World does have special offers, deals, and discounts for eligible military veterans and their spouses or widows. There are currently discounts on theme park tickets, discounts on Disney Resorts Collection hotel stays, and for some people, access to Shades of Green Armed Forces Recreation Center, which is located on Disney property.

    So let's look at what eligible means. There are a few different ways you may be eligible. Your husband would have to have been retired from 20+ years of service, and you must have been married during those 20 years. Or, if your husband passed away from his service-related disability while on active duty, you are also eligible. Another way to qualify is if your husband was 100% service-connected disabled, permanent and total, which would have been on his Military ID card as DAVPRM. In each situation, you would have to have remained un-remarried and have a Military ID card of your own.

    Cheryl, if you fall into any of these eligibility categories, you can order the Military Salute Tickets through Shades of Green, but they are taking a few weeks to get to you. You'll want to fill out the ticket request form as soon as you can. And don't forget, you'll have to have the tickets purchased in order to book theme park reservations

    I wish you a practically perfect visit, Cheryl!
