Nah, I'm too husky for actual training. I'll stick with the video game tutorials.

My husband is retired USAF and we qualify for the military salute tickets, referenced in the original post. There is a difference between a vet and a retiree, not sure which category you fall under.

It's never too late to enlist...

The Great GonzoSep 27, 2019

It's too bad I can't take advantage of this. The most I've done that's military is Call of Duty on Xbox one.

No worries mate, I never stay rack rate anyway (cant afford it if I wanted to!). I wasn't planning on going but if the rumours of a hefty 2020 discount come around, I'll re-consider.

ThatMouseSep 27, 2019

Not yet. The first of the general discount comes out around this time, end of the month. 2020 will be another year of uncertainty as Disney attempts to fill their capacity with rack rate customers. Don't do it!

What’s an active duty vet? And I am aware that vets don’t qualify...hence my original comment.

Here's something I tried in 2011, and it paid off beautifully. I booked a 10 day Disney vacation at the Wilderness Lodge over the phone, and only after everything was reserved did I ask if I could get an active duty discount. The cost of my total package was then shaved by about a third. Of course, I needed to present my ID at check-in to validate the discount, but this was not a problem. This was apparently an unadvertised discount. No idea if it still exists. Now that I'm an honorably discharged veteran, I tried the same trick when I booked my last trip, but no dice.

They already severely limit the amount of rooms available for this discount to where I couldn’t get a specific weekend even though I was on the phone with a rep AT 0700 today. I had to select a different weekend. I really do not think you will ever see the resort discount spread further than current veterans and retirees because they have already greatly cutback from when I first started booking rooms with this deal. It sucks but everyone has access while they are in and then if they do their 20.

Its not currently a "Veteran" thing, its a service member thing. All service members are veterans, but not all veterans are current service members. Retirees are service members. There's a nice little section in the US code that specifies that they can reach out and pull you back until basically your dead. Improbable, but legal. If you've got a very specialized MOS, they will and they have if the need arises. 10 U.S. Code § 688.Retired members: authority to order to active duty; duties

Disney should give the honorably discharged vets the same discount. Increase in attendance is a no brainer. Maybe a suggestion to incoming WDW pres Josh??

larryzSep 26, 2019

Active duty vets and retired vets can buy these tix. Honorably discharged vets don't qualify for this discount. That's not a DoD policy, that's a Disney policy. But until criteria change, they can use Shades of Green twice each year, in September and January. That's not a Disney policy, that's an Army MWR policy.

The_JobuSep 26, 2019

The only new promo I could see is 20% off tickets for Canadians. Are there any other 2020 discounts up in America?

networkproSep 26, 2019

No I did not state that I regurgitated PAO boilerplate press nor the extent of what this "eligibility" entails, it's always buried in the details of implementation. It might not be anything more than what's covered under the "Salute to our Veterans". Politicians are always great at promising the world and then delivering an empty shell.
