Military Rates at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels
Military Discounts on Official Walt Disney World Hotels
Discounted rooms may be available to members of the U.S. Military and their spouses. These are standard discounts that are often slightly better than what is available to the general public, but generally not better than the offers available through Magical Vacations Travel. Note that offers and discounts cannot be combined.
Be sure to check my Hotel Offers page for all available discounts and offers.
Up to 3 rooms may be booked at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels. The eligible member must occupy one of them. All the package benefits apply just as they would for normally priced Disney Resort Packages including use of Disney's Magical Express, FastPass selections 60-days in advance, complimentary Magic Bands, and the option to include a Disney Dining Plan.
To book a military discount hotel room at Walt Disney World, call 407-WDW-Disney. Using a travel agent will be beneficial as most are willing to research all the offers available and show you the best options.
Shades of Green Resort
Shades of Green Resort is reserved exclusively for eligible members of the U.S. Military and select government agencies that support the Department of Defense. I recommend that you view the official list of acceptable ID types that will be required to make a reservation at Shades of Green Resort.
Up to 3 rooms may be booked by an eligible member and that person must occupy one of the rooms. Shades of Green Resort often runs special offers of its own, available through its website. There are standard offers available throughout the entire year as well as limited time offers. Limited time offers are typically better. If you book far in advance, check back often to see if a limited time offer has become available.
Both, room-only and room packages are available through Shades of Green Resort. When booking, ask if there are any discounts available as they might not automatically take the time to check for you. You might want to price out a room-only reservation, purchasing your tickets separately and then see what a package would cost.
You can check availability and book a reservation online at Shades of Green through the website but it is advisable to call directly to have an agent assist you in researching the different packages and options. For reservations call Reservations: (888) 593-2242.
B Resort & Spa - Disney Springs

Military Discount on Theme Park Tickets
Walt Disney World Resort offers specially priced Theme Park tickets for active and retired U.S. military personnel. Spouses of active and retired personnel are also eligible to purchase military discount tickets for family and friends.
4-Day & 5-Day Promotional Discount Tickets
The biggest discounts are on the 4-Day Military Promotional Ticket and the 5-Day Military Promotional Ticket. Tickets are valid most dates throughout the year and are valid at all four Disney Theme Parks. The Park Hopper Option can be added at a deep discount as well, allowing you to visit multiple Disney World Theme Parks on the same day.
standard military Discount Tickets
The standard military discount can be applied to any other number of days ranging form a single-day ticket up to a 10-day ticket. The standard discount is less than the promotional 4-day and 5-day ticket. Take the standard discount are if you plan to visit a Disney Theme Park for just one day or if you need more than 5-days. For example, you want an 8-day ticket: It might be cheaper to take the standard 8-Day military discount rather than purchasing two sets of the promotional 4-day ticket. Price it out both ways just to be sure.
Eligible service members are defined by Disney as:
Active or retired members of the U.S. Military
National Guard, U.S. Coast Guard, Reservists, Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service (PHS), and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are also eligible.
Spouses of Military Service Members also qualify if they are able to present valid and active U.S. Military IDs in the absence of active or retired Military Personnel or Commissioned Corps Members.
A maximum of 6 military discount tickets may be purchased for family and friends but at least one of the tickets must be used by the eligible person.
Where to Purchase Military Discount Tickets
Local Base Ticket Office: You can purchase onsite or by mail. If you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can make FastPass selections for attractions up to 60-Days in advance. I is recommend that you make your FastPasses as soon as possible. The base office might have to order certain ticket types so plan to leave enough time for this.
Shades of Green Resort at Walt Disney World Resort: You can purchase military discounted tickets right at the Shades of Green Resort ticket office. This location may also have discounted tickets for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party on select nights. The Shades of Green Ticket Office is opened daily 8am to 7pm. Phone: 407-824-1403 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Walt Disney World Ticket Office: The military promotional 4-day and 5-day tickets can be purchased at any Walt Disney World ticket office. Ticket offices are located outside of each of the Theme Parks. They will not have the standard military discount tickets or any other military discount ticket available - just the 4-day and 5-day military passes.
In addition, a military discount is offered on Memory Maker at Walt Disney World.
Visit the Walt Disney World website for current details on military discounts and offers.
