disney military discounts, when will Disney announce 2018 military discounts

The Disney Travel and 2018 Military Discounts!

Well, Disney has done it again!  Military Discounts for 2018 have been announced today!

Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Discount program offers active and retired members of the U.S. military as well as members of the Reserves, Guard, Coast Guard, PHS and NOAA, 100% service related disabled veterans and a few others a huge discount on both tickets and rooms for Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

If you are eligible, you certainly want to take advantage of this offer.

Armed Forces Salute!

Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Tickets

For calendar year 2018, eligible guests have the ability to purchase six (6) Armed Forces Salute tickets.  One ticket must be used by the eligible military member or spouse. The remaining five tickets can be used by any friend or family member traveling with them. Remember, you are eligible for (6) tickets for use in Disney World and (6) tickets for use in Disneyland during 2018.

Thank you for supporting our military!

*Tip: smaller families (or parents traveling alone!!) can purchase smaller quantities of tickets more than once during 2018, as long as they do not exceed (6) Disney World and (6) Disneyland tickets total during 2018.

Similar to the 2017 discount, military guests have the option of purchasing tickets for two different lengths of days. Disney World tickets can be purchased for four or five days of use; Disneyland tickets can be purchased for three of four days of use.

Disney World Armed Forces Salute Ticket Options and Pricing

  • Four Day Park Hopper-$226
  • Four Day Park Hopper plus (Water Parks and More)-$266
  • Five Day Park Hopper-$246
  • Five Day Park Hopper plus (Water Parks and More)-$286

Disneyland Armed Forces Salute Ticket Options and Pricing

  • Three Day Park Hopper-$168,
  • Four Day Park Hopper-$188

 

All tickets can be purchased from your local MWR, Shades of Green, and Disney Parks.  Please note that tickets purchased directly from Disney will have tax added to the above amounts; MWR and Shades of Green tickets are tax free.

Also important to note, all tickets can be linked to your “mydisneyexperience”.  However, tickets purchased from MWR and Disney will require proof of service (military ID) and activation at the park’s customer service desk.  Tickets purchased from Shades of Green will be activated at the Shades of Green ticket counter (or prior to shipping), saving you time at the park.

And finally, Disney World tickets can be purchased now through December 15, 2018 for use January 1, 2018 through December 19, 2018. Disneyland tickets can be purchased from November 1, 2017 through December 16, 2018 for use January 1, 2018 through March 22, 2018 and April 9, 2018 through December 19, 2018.

*Again, Disneyland tickets have a blackout period from March 23 through April 8, 2018.

Again, Disney has been very generous in offering military guests an amazing discount. The room discount, unlike the ticket discount, can be used repeatedly.

My name is Patricia, aka Military Diva, and I have a soft spot for Disney Destinations! After a two year post-9/11 deployment, our family was able to reconnect during a Disney World vacation. While counting on time together, we did not expect the touching service we received from Cast Members. We were treated like royalty! It is my mission as a writer for "Tips from the Disney Diva" and as owner of "All for Dreams Travel" to help other families experience their own special connections through travel.
