Am I eligible for Disney Military Salute tickets?

Am I eligible for Disney Military Salute tickets?

by Cindy



The information below is incorrect. I misread a page that had information about who was eligible. Retired members are not eligible for the Military Salute Tickets but there are some Disney Tickets available through Shades of Green. They will offer a discount off the standard Magic Your Way Tickets.

Can I get discounted tickets if I am a Disney Movie Club member, or can I get discounted tickets if my husband is prior military but did not retire from the service? He was in the service six years and then left with an honorable discharge. Please let me know as we go the third week in April.

Cindy, first, thank you. Thank you for your service, I know you weren't in the service, your husband was, but it affects the families too. Thank your husband for his service. We really appreciate that. Thank you for your sacrifice, letting him go serve.

The answer to your question is yes, you are eligible. I know a lot of things say that only active duty and retired are eligible for the Disney Military Salute Tickets. They leave out the part of honorably discharged. Active duty, honorably discharge, retired service members are all eligible for the military discount.

The Military Salute is the name of the ticket that Disney offers and it's a really, really good deal.
To get your tickets, you need to get in touch with the nearest base military travel office. They have the tickets, and they'll be able to sell you tickets. That's the best way to go.

If you want a place to stay while you're down there, Shades of Green is a great option for retired, honorably discharged, and active duty military members.

Disney does a good job of honoring our military.

Dad's Bottom Line

The bottom line is, no, the Disney Movie Club won't offer you any discounts, sorry. And yes, your husband is eligible for the Disney Military Salute. You can get tickets for the family through your local military base ticket office. Again, thank him and thank you for you service and your sacrifice.

Veterans not qualified
by: Misty

From what I am reading veterans do not qualify for any kind of discounted ticket unless you are 100% disabled. Only active duty AND retired military get the discount.

Eligibility for Military Discounts
by: dean

I went to and it says you have to be a retiree or a 100% disabled honorably discharged military member to get the discount. Where have you found that non-disabled honorably discharged members qualify?
