The Mouse has announced his Disney Armed Forces Salute military discount rates for 2023. If you’ve been waiting for the 2023 Disney military discounts, now is the time to plan your trip!
Now, these tickets are supposed to already be available for purchase, but the website has not yet been updated. So I’m not guaranteeing anything here 🙂
Editor’s Note: If you are a military family planning a vacation, strongly consider purchasing travel insurance.
Eligibility for 2023 Disney Military Discounts
Currently serving military members, including: active duty, reserves, National Guard, Coast Guard, Public Health Service, and NOAA. Spouses may bring their family members without the service member but it’s still tied to the service member’s eligibility – it’s one trip per family, whether the service member attends or not.
Retired military members including regular retired, reserves, National Guard, Coast Guard, Public Health Service, and NOAA.
Military families may bring their non-military friends and family to join them on their Disney vacation, but the tickets may not be otherwise transferred, distributed or resold. There is supposed to be a limit of 6 tickets per service member. I’m not sure how strictly that is enforced.
Tickers for this specific offer must be purchased and used by 15 December 2023.
What’s Included in the 2023 Disney Military Discounts?
The Walt Disney World Military Promotional Ticket pricing applies to 4- and 5-day tickets. Tickets come with the Park Hopper option and you can purchase the Park Hopper Plus option. The Park Hopper allows you to go to all four of the Florida Disney parks at any time. The Park Hopper Plus also includes admission to the Blizzard Beach water park, Typhoon Lagoon water park, entry to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, miniature golf at two courses, or 9 holes of golf at the Oak Trail Golf Course. (Please verify these details with Disney – I know nothing about Disney!)
The promotional tickets below are available for purchase:
5-Day Disney Military Salute Tickets
- With the Park Hopper Option: $369 plus tax
- With the Park Hopper Plus Option: $399 plus tax
4-Day Disney Military Salute Tickets

Tickets may be purchased at Shades of Green Resort on the Walt Disney World property or through your installation’s ticket office. When you get to the park, tickets need to be activated at the Disney gate before you use them.
Disney Military Promotional Tickets must be used between 1 January 2023 through 15 December 2023. There are blackout dates with the 2023 rates. You can not use these tickets 2 to 15 April 2023 or 19 to 25 November 2023.
Disney hotel discounts have gotten a little harder to plan, because they use a variable discount based upon occupancy rates. You’ll really have to call Disney to find out what they’re offering for the dates that you want to book. Some of the deals are quite generous and some aren’t a very big discount.
Memory Maker and Disney PhotoPass Collection
Memory Maker is Walt Disney World’s photo program. With this program, Disney photographers take your pictures and then them to your Memory Maker account. This means you don’t have to carry a camera with you. The Disney military discounts program includes the option to purchase the Memory Maker add-on for just $98 through 15 December 2023.
