Military Monday: Will Disney Renew Their Military Discount for 2016?

american mickey

It’s that time of year again where everyone is waited with baited breath to see when/if Disney will be renewing it’s Armed Forces discount for the following year.  The military discount at Disney works off of the fiscal, not calendar year, so the current offer expires on October 3rd.   Last year the Armed Forces Salute renewal was announced on July 21st.  Hopefully we will see an announcement by then, if not sooner.

If you are looking to travel with the military discount in late 2015 or 2016, please know that we are on top of this release and will notify you as soon as it comes out!  If you’d like a quote as soon as this discount is released please submit a quote request form so that we can provide one to you as soon as the discount renewal is announced.

In the meantime, if you are anxious to book due to the 180 day mark and dining reservations or FastPass+ reservations, we can book your trip at the regular rate and add the military discount, pending availability, when it is released.

If you have any questions regarding your next Disney vacation or any upcoming vacation, please don’t hesitate to email me at gretchen@destinationsinflorida.com.  I look forward to helping you create magical memories to last a lifetime!
