  1. this is a good deal, but there should be family packs as many military members have families. Though I am personally grateful of the gesture as any assistance given to the military is always good. Thank you.

  2. Wjames the whole family can use the deal. The military member must be present with the party at the first time it is used. After that, the card holder can use it whenever they want without the service member. i.e. We bought one for my mother. My husband was there on her first day and then she used it throughout the year with other people.

  3. Well, that sounds great. I am an overseas employee and I purchased tickets about a year ago and was publicly humiliated by the Disney staff. I was informed that I had no right to have the tickets as it was not for civilian workers. I have diligently supported the military environment for over 15 years living abroad as a vital member providing educational services to our military children. Can you imagine how embarrassing it was to have my children and grandchildren wait outside until a manager was located to assist us. I went through the proper channels purchased over $1300. In tickets to be humiliated. After showing my valid ID card and a copy of my orders I was able to gain entrance. My question is why can’t you include civilians in on this deal that support the military in various capacities?

    1. I’m sorry that your not active duty or a veteran buy serving 15 years as an overseas contract yiibmist make a pretty penny and can likely afford the tickets

    2. Because it’s called a military discount for a reason. If you want the discount then enlist in the military. Plain and simple. Military discounts are active duty, Veterans and there families. That’s great that you provide service to the Armed Forces but that still doesn’t qualify you or your family for a military discount

    3. Because you didn’t graduate boot camp, basic training, OCS, any academy, deploy, or raise your right hand to defend the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. You didn’t agree to put yourself potentially in harms way. It might say DoD on your check, but you are a civillian, and it is a military discount. Stopped acting as if you are entitled to a privilege you don’t qualify for. It is a kindness they render to soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen that could make a sacrifice 80% of our country isn’t willing to make.

      1. Actually you are incorrect, civilians also swear in, same exact words you said. Civilians also TDY and can possibly deploy if needed due to job position. I’m not saying it is equal to a military members service, but civilians also serve in their own context

    4. That public humiliation can not be half as bad as what you will get form military and veteran on this site. You should have just taken your private (public Humiliation) and been done with it. In your 15 years, are you subject to deployment to combat zones?

    5. Civilian equivalents supporting in roles you mentioned make as close as makes no difference to double what their military counterparts make in most situations. This is why these deals are offered to military folks. When you serve in a role where you are forced to go to hostile areas, take enemy fire, and make that crucial decision to take a life, all while making far less money than you currently do, then you should be able to get this deal.

  4. I’m confused on who is eligible for this.
    I am a US Veteran (served in Iraq twice). I only served for 4 years. I am no longer on active or reserve duty. I had an Honorable Discharge.
    Am I eligible for this deal?
    Thanks!!

      1. I have a Massachusetts driver license with my Veteran stamped on it, will I be able to get lower prices ? Thanks

  5. I purchased tickets last year from MWR , unfortunately did not read the print on limited use window. I guess Disney only supports troops during the slow tourism periods. Ended up paying an extra 1000 dollars to get in. I can guarantee my family will never be going back. Take advantage of the national parks, better memories than the overcrowded commercialized hell of Disney.

  6. This is a good deal have used it many times. It’s a active duty bennifit as active duty personal make shit for money and work 16 hours a day. It’s well deserved for them and their families.

  7. hey disney what about disabled vets who are not retired and all other vets we served too….you need to offer to all veterans.. on my compensation pay i will never afford taking my kids to disney…they will never know that special place….

  8. “Eligible Service Members” are active or retired members of the U.S. military, including the National Guard, Reservists, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service (PHS), and the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
