Linking Military Disney Discounted Tickets
Using Military Disney Discounted Tickets at Walt Disney World? There are a few extra steps you will need to do prior to your trip. Find all the details below.
Linking Theme Park Tickets
Since Military Discounted tickets are not purchased directly from Disney, you will have to manually enter and link your theme park tickets to each member of your party.
*If you just created your My Disney Experience account you will want to add all the members of your party BEFORE linking the Park Tickets.
Just like linking your resort reservation, linking your park tickets has to be done on your My Disney Experience account. Linking your park tickets does NOT have to be done on a computer. On a browser, you’re going to see the My Disney Experience dashboard and under Park Tickets you’re going to select “Link Tickets”.
From the app, you’ll see three little lines in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Then you will need to tap on “Tickets & Passes” and then “Link Tickets & Passes”.
At this point, you can either enter the code on the back of your Park Tickets, OR you can tap “Open Camera” and scan the QR code (if your ticket type has one) and assign each park ticket to a member of your party.
Once you have everyone in your party linked with a Theme Park Ticket you are going to want to make your Theme Park Reservations. Theme Park Reservations are REQUIRED to enter any of the four theme parks at Walt Disney World.
*Beginning January 9, 2024, theme park reservations will no longer be required for date-based tickets. Because Military Discounted tickets are NOT date-based, theme park reservations will still be required for guests using those types of tickets.
You will make a Park Reservation for every day you wish to be in the parks. Each day you will make a Park Reservation for one park, guaranteeing your entrance into that specific park. If you have a Park Hopper Ticket, after 2pm you will be able to hop to any of the other three theme parks and you will NOT need a Park Reservation for any other parks once Park Hopping hours start. **You will have guaranteed entry into your Morning Park (or the Park that you made Park Reservations for that day) for the ENTIRE day.
But wait. Where can I buy discounted Military Park Tickets?
If you still need to buy your discounted Military Park Tickets you have a couple options. You can buy discounted Military Park Tickets at your local installation’s MWR or ITT. Or you can purchase them from Shades of Green Ticket Office.
There are a couple different discounted ticket options. Depending on if you’re Active Duty, Retired or a Veteran that Honorably Served, there might be a certain ticket type you will be eligible to buy.
Disney Military Promotional Tickets
The Military Promotional Ticket or also referred to as The Military Salute Tickets are for Service Members who are Active Duty, Retired, in the National Guard, a Reservist, in the Coast Guard and a few others. The picture above shows all the different Military IDs that are accepted for these Promotional Tickets. These tickets are DEEPLY discounted.
Magic Your Way Tickets
If you are a Veteran who has Honorably Served, do not fret! There are still discounted tickets you can purchase! Magic Your Way Tickets will still save you a couple hundred dollar versus paying full price from Disney.
