    I am the widow of a 100% Disabled Veteran with a valid military ID. Am I able to purchase the Military Salute Tickets and get the discounted room rates when they are offered?

    Hi Cheryl, welcome to planDisney. From all of us on the Panel, and from one military spouse to another, we want to thank you for your late husband's service to our nation, and the sacrifices you and your family went through. We are happy you stopped by with your question today, you've got friends in all of us!

    Cheryl as the widow of a deceased 100% disabled veteran, you should be able to purchase the Armed Forces Salute tickets through Shades of Green Resort. I spoke to a Cast Member regarding your situation, and they said you should be able to purchase your tickets as long as you have your military I.D. present. If you need any more information regarding purchasing your tickets through Shades of Green, you can call their Attractions Tickets Sales Office at (407) 824-1403. Keep in mind that you will still need to make theme park pass reservations to enter the theme parks, which you can do via the My Disney Experience app on your phone, or your Disney account online. Check the theme park availability calendar to see what is available before you make your reservations. As far as military room rates, I would call the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Desk at (407) 939-1936, and explain your status. They will determine whether or not the military rates apply as well.

    Since you will be visiting in the spring next year, I hope you enjoy all the beautiful topiaries and outdoor kitchens that will be found throughout World Showcase at Disney's EPCOT Park next year during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. It is one of my favorite seasonal celebrations during the year, don't forget to try the violet lemonade and Frushi! Have a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Cheryl!
