Disney is Honoring the Military With Free Theme Park Admission in 2009


Disney is Honoring the Military With Free Theme Park Admission in 2009!

You read that right!  If you are active or retired military, then you have quite an opportunity here.  Disney World and Disneyland both are offering FREE, multi-day passes to you!

This offer has been appropriately named "Disney's Armed Forces Salute".   With this offer, active and retired U.S. military personnel, including active and retired members of the United States Coast Guard and activated members of the National Guard or Reservists, can enjoy complimentary, multi-day admission into Disney's U.S. theme parks, great rates at select Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort hotels, and additional special ticket offers for family members and friends.

They have a special reason for making such a grand offer.  As stated on their site, "For so many of the men and women who serve in our U.S. military, time together with their families is cause enough for celebration," said Jay Rasulo, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. "We are grateful for their service and hope 'Disney's Armed Forces Salute' will allow our troops to create wonderful, magical memories with their family and friends."

Now the offer that is available depends on which park you plan on visiting.  The offer for Disneyland is Disney photo by Erin Gifford of CouponCravings.comavailable through June 12, 2009, while the offer for Walt Disney World extends through December 23, 2009.  So if you can't make it to Disneyland in the next few months, you can still travel to Florida to take advantage of this awesome deal!

Disneyland in California is offering each active or retired member of the U.S. military one complimentary three-day "Disney's Armed Forces Salute" Park Hopper ticket valid for admission to both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure parks.  Until June 12th, active or retired U.S. military personnel are also able to make a one-time purchase of adult or child three-day "Disney's Armed Forces Salute Companion" Park Hopper tickets for up to five family members or friends for the price of an adult 1-Day Park Hopper ticket.  I'm not sure what that price is, but you're essentially getting three days for the price of one.

Walt Disney World in Florida is doing something slightly different.  Each active or retired member of the U.S. military may obtain one complimentary 5-day "Disney's Armed Forces Salute" ticket with Park Hopper and Water Park Fun & More options.  So you get two additional days and can get into all of the water parks! 

The Walt Disney World ticket is valid for five days of admission into the four Walt Disney World theme parks, plus a total of five visits to a choice of a Disney water park, DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park or certain other attractions. During this offer period, active or retired U.S. military personnel may also make a one-time purchase of up to a maximum of five 5-Day "Disney's Armed Forces Salute Companion" tickets (one theme park per day) for $99 per ticket, plus tax, for family members or friends. Although this ticket for family members and friends does not include either the Park Hopper or Water Park Fun & More options, this ticket can be upgraded to add either such option, or both, for an additional $25, plus tax, per option.

Can you say Golden Opportunity?  What a wonderful chance Disney is giving our finest men and women to take a break and really enjoy time with their families at either Disneyland or Disney World. 

If you would like more information on "Disney's Armed Forces Salute", then check out Disney's website set up specifically for this offer.  You can also call the ITT office on base.

This is great! I just read yesterday about Disney Land offering payment plans for seasonal passes - and was going to check out if Disney World was doing the same thing. Now this! I'm reblogging this because we have a lot of military in our area. Thanks for such a thorough explanation of the plan! ~ Sharon

Larry: Yes they are!  We would not be the country that we are if it weren't for our men and women in the military.  I just want to get the word out so that everyone who is eligible for this offer knows about it and has the chance to take advantage of it :)

If only they were including veterans, too ...
