Sorry for the long post but I thought this is worth sharing. My mom's FRG sent this to her & I thought it's worth passing on to others. We're planning a trip to Florida this spring so I'm excited about this offer! Between these free & discounted tickets to the Disney parks & the regular annual free military tickets to the Anheuser-Busch parks, we're all set--yeah! :-)

Travel Dates: January 4 - December 23, 2009



Walt Disney World has just introduced a special Armed Forces Salute Ticket for 2009. Each qualifying Military Service member* will receive a complimentary 5-Day “Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Ticket” with Park Hopper and Water Park Fun & More Options included. To receive the FREE ticket, visit any theme park Guest Relations window and show proper ID.



In addition to the free Armed Forces Salute Ticket, up to 5 of their guests can purchase for $99 a Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Companion (5 Day Base) ticket. Park Hopper or Water Park Fun & More option are available for $25 each (which is 50% off the normal price). Companion tickets may be upgraded to Premium, Annual or Seasonal Passes. Seasonal Pass upgrade requires proof of Florida Residency. Companion tickets may not be upgraded by adding the no expiration option, and you cannot add additional days to the passes.



Companion tickets may be purchased at any Disney World ticket window or guest services. You may also purchase tickets at Shades of Green, located at Walt Disney World or on your base (these two options are tax-free). If you purchase the tickets at Shades of Green or on base, you will receive a voucher that you will trade in once you arrive at a Walt Disney World ticket window.



Armed Forces Salute tickets will expire on 12/23/09 and have no block-out dates. Tickets may be upgraded anytime between January 4th -December 23, 2009 as long as there is usage left on the ticket.



The entire party needs to be present for purchase (Spouse or military dependents can receive the companion discount without the military service member being present as long as they have their military ID). The military service member will need to show ID; Cast Member will ask for their Base’s name, and the State where the base is listed.



This offer is only available once per service member.



*This offer is available to anyone on active duty in the US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, National Guard or Reserve, and retired military. Activated members of the National Guard and Reservists must present active duty orders in addition to valid military ID. You must have been active for any length of time between 1/1/08 and 12/23/09. Dept of Defense (CIA, FBI, Secret Service) and Coalition Forces are excluded.

That's so awesome. I just checked it out and called Disneyland. They said it is true. Any active duty or retired military will receive a free 3 day park hopper pass. However...you must go to your ITT to get the tickets. They do not offer the free tickets at guest relations. You must fill out a form and get the tickets. Disneyland also said that not all bases offer the tickets but for sure San Diego, Ca, Seal Beach and Port Angeles have the tickets. So check it out!!! I'm going for spring break with my kids. A small adventure to look forward to while the hubby is deployed!!!

These tickets are a good idea. I'm glad that companies are starting to support the families that sacrifice not only their lives, but their relationships with all the deployments and stuff. I'm going to try and trick my husband into Disney World. He's never been, but I've been there 3 times and I absolutly love it!

We're going to use our tickets this Sunday. Yeah and don't forget about the free ticket you get to SeaWorld or Busch Gardens too.

Yes!!!! I forgot about that - so Sea World in Orlando is another option....... :)

They have been doing it for as long as I can remember!

A little off the subject.....Two businesses I discovered that love the military and offer 10% discounts anyday of the week are Boston Market and Dicks Sporting Goods. Also, recently I found out that Tueday's are 20% off at Walgreens! So cool to support the establishments that support our families :)

Quoting J.C.:

Frances--it's actually ALL Anheuser-Busch parks that have this deal (you have to choose 1 park, though). Here's a link to the application: . With as difficult it is to be a military family, it's little things like that that go a long way. Since posting the original message about Disney World, I found out that Disneyland is offering a similar promotion but theirs ends in June.


The link didn't go through for some reason.  Here it is again:
