This is one of the most exciting times of the year for our family-cooler evenings, weekend bonfires and pumpkin spice is here. Football season is upon us and of course, DISNEY’S 2020 MILITARY DISCOUNTS have been ANNOUNCED !!

Disney's Military Discounts - Now Available for 2020 Dates of Travel!

Thanks to the generosity of the Disney Travel Company, many military families are able to enjoy a hugely discounted Disney vacation.  Each fall we anxiously wait for the announcement, hoping we get just one more year of affordable vacations.

On September 26, Disney once again extended their Pixie Dust to all those currently serving, retired or disabl

ed from the military.  They have generously extended the military discounts (previously known as Armed Forces Salute) into 2020.

Disney 2020 Military Discounts

Disney-We thank you for supporting our Military Families!

Let’s take a look at the eligibility requirements and details of the 2020 Discount.

Who’s Eligible?

Disney’s Military Discount extends to several groups of service members:

  1. Current members of the Armed Forces (Active, Reserve and National Guard, Coast Guard, PHS and NOAA) and their spouses.
  2. Fully retired members of the Armed Forces (Served 20 years) and their spouses
  3. 100% service related disabled members of the Armed Forces and their spouses
  4. There are other eligible members involving Gold Star and divorced families that require specific eligibility.  For these situations, I recommend contacting your local on-base MWR ticketing agency or Shades of Green.

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.
