To salute military personnel and their families, Disney has recently announced the renewal of their popular military discounts for 2022.
Disney’s Armed Forces Salute allows members of the U.S. military to purchase steeply discounted theme park tickets. Military personnel can also get large discounts on stays at select Disney Resort hotels.
The Salute is a special temporary offer which has been renewed on a year by year basis since January 2009.
These tickets are completely separate from the regular military discounted tickets available at local military bases.
Here’s the scoop from Military.com:
For the renewed Walt Disney World offer, purchase through December 16, 2022 and choose between 4-day or 5-day theme park tickets, with the Park Hopper option and the Park Hopper Plus option at the Orlando, Florida park. Those tickets must be used from January 1, 2022 through December 16, 2022. For the offer at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, choose between a 3-day and 4-day Park Hopper Ticket when you purchase through December 12, 2022 and use by December 16, 2022.
Along with being able to receive discounted park tickets, Disney Resort hotels are also offering military personnel large discounts on lodging. Since the number of rooms are limited for the discount, you will need to make advanced reservations. Select room discounts are up to 30-40% off the normal rates
If you are considering taking advantage of Disney’s Armed Forces Salute discount, please keep in mind it is only available to:
Active-duty military members
Retired military members
National Guard members
Military spouses can qualify as well, but they must have an active military ID with them to show Disney in the absence of the military member. While spouses may use their member’s benefit, they are not entitled to a benefit of their own. They only use the discounts in place of the member.
