The incredible Disney Armed Forces Salute was renewed for 2017. I should have blogged on it months ago, but as I was stalking the deals, I was trying to figure out how to plan our Military Disneyland vacation – around a crazy military life. It’s hard to plan for the future when you never know where you could be living or doing! Such is life, on to my favorite military discount from my favorite company. On to the Disney Military Salute Discount! It has some changes this year.
Disney Armed Forces Salute Ticket Discounts
New for 2017 is two lengths of tickets:
- At Walt Disney World 4 AND 5 day length tickets with either the Hopper option or the Hopper and Water Park Options
- At Disneyland Resort 3 AND 4 day lengths, both hoppers
Tickets will be available for sale at Shades of Green, your military ITT on base, or you can call

You may also upgrade any Disney Armed Forces Salute ticket to an annual or seasonal pass for the price difference between the Salute price and the full price pass plus tax..

Note These tickets need to be activated at WDW prior to entering a theme park.

Note These tickets need to be activated at Disneyland before entering a theme park. Stand in the regular line with military IDs in hand, they will convert your ticket papers to Military Salute tickets and take your picture to attach to ticket in the system. No need to do it again the rest of the stay.
At Disneyland Salute Tickets are not valid for Magic Morning early entry admission.
Disney Armed Forces Salute Ticket Rules
* 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, Disney will allow all members of the family to buy Disney Military Promotion Tickets, for Mom, Dad, and the five kids.
I cannot thank Disney enough for the Military Salute discounts over the last few years, and how they make our family feel so appreciated both in the parks and on the phone. Leave a BIG thank you in the comments for Disney <3
