That’s right!  Disney has just announced that their spectacular Armed Forces Salute has been EXTENDED through December 2015!

Disney is one of a handful of companies that have consistently shown support for our Military Community.  After 9/11, they premiered a program known as the Armed Forces Salute.  This amazing discount offers eligible military members and their families an opportunity to visit Disney World or Disneyland at a cost well below the public rates.

This discount has had on and off years and even had some significant changes through the past decade.  The procedure for announcing the program has not changed much though.  Typically the renewal for the AFS is announced late summer/early fall for use in late September/early October.  While grateful for this level of discount, some families still struggled with their travel plans. Not knowing if one would have a discount could be a deal breaker  while others were concerned with having sufficient time to make their Advanced Dining Reservations.  This is not a big issue considering what Disney offered.

The changes made to Disney World and the new use of myDisneyExperience (MDE) in 2013/2014 however created a much larger issue for military families.  The introduction of Fast Pass+ and the ability to schedule these attractions 30/60 days prior to travel was now unavailable to those choosing to travel in October and early November.  Our AFS salute tickets were not available to purchase until the beginning of the new discount period.

No tickets= no link to mydisneyexperience= no FP+ reservations.

Many military families respectfully voiced their concerns to Disney, and it appears Disney has heard all of us!
