Hotel Discounts for Military Members and Families at Walt Disney World
Discounted rates at hotels on property and off are abundant for Walt Disney World military families.
Shades of Green
Shades of Green military retreat is located west of Magic Kingdom nestled between two PGA golf courses. Although not a Disney-owned resort, it still offers plenty of Disney magic. Guests can look for ticket discounts (more later), special events, and transportation to and from the parks and venues. A visit at this armed force center is based on rank and length of stay. Junior personnel pay more than senior rank but the location still has the best prices for military families.
Contact Shades of Green for the complete list of rates and eligibility.
Walt Disney World Resort Lodging
Walt Disney World military price deductions fall under the Disney Armed Forces Salute 2019 Disney Armed Forces Salute discount. This includes slashed hotel prices and cheaper tickets. The discounts for accommodations depend on availability and the location category.
Value category refers to the least expensive locations including Disney’s All-Star Resorts, Disney Pop Century Resort, and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. These facilities offer a 30% off discount.
Moderate pricing for Walt Disney World military visitors feature Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort- both Riverside and French Quarters, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, and The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. The Armed Forces Salute discount honors a 35% reduced price.
For military guests who are eyeing the deluxe locations, they can receive a 40% rate for a stay at several high-end venues. These include Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Disney’s Beach Club and Yacht Club Resorts, and Disney’s BoardWalk Inn among others.
Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin
There are a few non-Disney venues on property that offer discounted military rates. Because Walt Disney World Dolphin and Walt Disney World Swan are Marriott chain-owned, discounts are through the headquarters. For further information, I recommend contacting these hotels individually.
Likewise, the non-Disney locations on Walt Disney World Resort land, the hotels/motels off-site offer independent military discounts. There are far too many to list individually but a quick internet check through travel agents or travel sites can verify any military discounts.
