Disneyland Is an Even Happier Place for Military Families!
Disneyland has been described as the happiest place on earth. Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Program makes it even happier for military families. This program allows service members and their families to enjoy big discounts at Disney-themed parks and select Disney resorts and hotels.
Disney Armed Forces Salute Program Perks
The Walt Disney Company has been implementing the military discount program after its resort room reservations and ticket sales fell in 2009 due to the economic downturn. The program has been renewed on a year-by-year basis since then.
The Disney Armed Forces Salute offers Disney theme park tickets at over half off the regular price and Disney resort rooms at up to a 30% to 40% discount.
At Walt Disney World, the 2023 Disney Armed Forces Salute, which started on January 1st, 2022, will run up to December 15th, 2023. At Disneyland, the program that started on January 9th, 2022, will run through December 15th, 2023.
Veteran Car Donations has pulled together the perks that Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Program offers to members of the U.S. military:
- Special discounts on Disney-themed park tickets
Service members and their families are eligible for special discounts on Disney-themed park tickets. All military personnel, including reserve members, are eligible for the offer.
Depending on the length of stay, service members can choose between the 4-day and 5-day Disney Military Salute tickets in Orlando, Florida, for $349 plus tax or $369 plus tax, respectively. On the other hand, 3-day and 4-day tickets to the Disney-themed Park in Anaheim, California, cost $245 and $280, respectively.
- Discounts on Disney hotels
As part of the Armed Forces Salute Program, service members can also get special discounts on rooms at Disney hotels. However, the discounts don’t apply at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, The Campsites at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort.
Since discounted rooms are limited and certain dates are blocked out, service members are advised to book their rooms in advance. Also, to avail themselves of the discounts, service members must stay for a certain number of days at the hotels.
- Extra park time
As an added benefit of the Disney Armed Forces Salute Program, those staying at Disney hotels are entitled to early park admission. Disney also gives them a 30-minute early entry to theme parks. Some parks may also offer them an extension in the evening hours to give them extra time for rides and shopping. Service members planning to get the extra park time should bring a valid admission, resort ID, and park reservation.
- Military discounted rates on Disney cruises
Military personnel and their families who have grown tired of theme parks and are looking to hit the seas can save money on Disney cruises with discounted prices. However, they can only book a maximum of one stateroom per sailing. It’s worth noting that discounted prices change depending on the season. That’s why they should check the rates before booking.
