Disney extends military discounts into 2014

The House of Mouse is extending the magic for troops and military family members.

Disney’s popular Armed Forces Salute was set to expire soon, but Magic Kingdom officials just announced a new deep discount program will continue savings through September 2014 for its resorts in Florida and California.

“It is essentially the same. No big changes,” says Steve Bell, who runs the Military Disney Tips website.

“The tickets have gone up, because their price is based on the gate price, which increased last June,” Bell tells OFFduty, but the overall discounts remain largely unchanged.

For example, while a Four-Day Park Hopper Pass now costs most people $338, military visitors will still pay half that at $169.

The current cheaper military ticket prices are still in effect for any trips before Sept 28, 2013. So, if you’re still thinking about trip this summer, that same 4-day Park Hopper will cost only $156.

Room discounts at Disney resorts also remain the same at 30 percent to 40 percent off regular prices under the new program.

There are some restrictions and block-out dates, so be sure to read the fine print when planning your vacation, advises Bell. There are also a limited number of rooms available at the military discount prices, both by resort and room type, so the earlier you book the better, he says.
