More boots will be on the ground, marching around Walt Disney World. This annual promotion is a mission go and was just renewed for 2021. This temporary special offer has been on a year-by-year basis since 2009 and a great way for Disney to honor active-duty and retired members of the armed forces.
The Disney Armed Forces Salute offers Disney theme park tickets over half off the regular price and Disney resort rooms up to a 30% to 40% discount! Also, please note that non-retired veterans do not qualify for this promotion. You must be currently serving on active-duty or a 20-year armed services veteran.
What is included in the 2021 Walt Disney World Armed Forces Salute Tickets?
Up to 6 Walt Disney World, Armed Forces Salute Tickets may be purchased and activated within the calendar year. For families larger than 6, Disney states “Exceptions should be made for immediate families larger than six people.” For example, if a family has five children, Walt Disney World Resort will allow all family members to purchase Disney Military Promotion Tickets for mom, dad, and their five children. One ticket during each purchase period must be for the use of the member or spouse; the rest can be used by anyone else (family or friends). Days on the tickets do not need to be used consecutively. Any days left on the tickets will expire at the end of the offer period. Tickets purchased at all military resellers (that’s Base Ticket Offices) except Shades of Green and not directly from Disney must be activated before first use in person by the military member or spouse. Once the tickets are activated, the party may split up. For example, some go to one park and some to another or even use the tickets on different days. The member's Military ID is checked only upon ticket activation.
Walt Disney World Armed Forces Salute Tickets come and in two types :
The Theme Park Hopper Option, which allows you to visit multiple parks on the same day
The Theme Park Hopper Plus Option, which allows 4 entrances to a variety of non-theme Park Disney venues in addition to your 4 theme park days
