Where to buy tickets: Disney Military Promotional Tickets may be only purchased at participating U.S. military sales locations, and can only be purchased by the servicemember, or their spouse (but not both), for use by themselves and other family members and friends.

The Disney website states, “The actual prices charged at the individual U.S. military base ticket offices for Disney Military Promotional Tickets may be less than the prices set forth above.” There are no guarantees your local base will offer these tickets for less than the stated price, but that would be a nice bonus!

    Dear Sir: Sometimes you talk about qualifications to events good to: active or retired personnel. Does this include vets that served in the military during certain theaters of war? Some of us were not in combat but served state side or in a not combat zone. Are we included to some of these special offers? Thanking you in advance for your reply. STEVE (Army Vet 1966-1968)

      Steve, when the term “active or retired personnel” is used, it typically means persons currently serving in the military, or those who retired from military service after 20 years, or those who were medically retired. Those who serve honorably, but do not retire, are generally referred to as veterans. Some discounts and offers include all veterans, while others may be given only to those currently serving, or possibly to those who served long enough to become a military retiree. Each discount can be unique from others offered by other companies or corporations, so it’s best to read the terms and conditions to know if you are eligible or not. I hope this answers your question.

    I have been looking at Disney. It states 100% disable veterans are also able for this discount I am not sure where to buy tickets: Disney Military Promotional Tickets may be only purchased at participating U.S. military sales locations, and can only be purchased by the servicemember, or their spouse (but not both), for use by themselves and other family members and friends. I am not close to a U.S. Military sales office as far as I can find. How can I get tickets?

    • says

      HI Vicki, Thanks for sharing the information about 100% disabled veterans being eligible for his offer. To be honest, I’m not sure how you can obtain the tickets if you are not close to am military installation. I would start by contacting Disney if possible. Then I would contact the closest base to you and ask if tickets can be purchased over the phone. If that doesn’t work, then I would look into a military installation near Orlando (there are several) and ask if they have tickets available for purchase. Then try to work that into your trip. You may want to plan an extra day in advance of your trip to make sure you have time to pick up the tickets. And try to purchase the tickets over the phone or online if possible, with the message that you will pick the tickets up in person before you need them – be sure to try and get copies of receipts if you are able to do this. If you are unable to buy them over the phone or online, then try to contact them in advance and let them know when you are coming so they will be sure to have tickets. Best of luck!

    Slightly off-topic but, Shades of Green is a great place to stay if you’re going to Disney. Nice hotel, inexpensive, shuttles to all the parks…can’t ask for much more.

    This is some great information! I am always looking for military discounts for my friends. A lot of military families don’t even know they can get discounts at places like this. Thanks!
