Disney offers free passes to active and retired U.S. military*
Published: January 5, 2009 at 1:30 PM
The offer is good through Dec. 23, 2009. Personnel should show their military ID at a ticket window to get the free ticket, as well as to buy additional five-day passes for $99 each. (Note that these are not park-hoppers.)
I haven't seen a specific announcement about Disneyland, but the last time Disney ran this promotion, free tickets at Disneyland also were available with a military ID.
Disney's run this promotion in previous years, and Busch has had a long-standing policy of free admissions for U.S. military at its theme parks (Busch Gardens and SeaWorld). Busch's offer does include family members, too, if I recall correctly.
*Update: The details from Disneyland...
Through June 12, 2009, each active or retired member of the U.S. military can receive one complimentary three-day "Disney's Armed Forces Salute" Park Hopper ticket valid for admission to both Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure parks. During the offer period, active or retired U.S. military personnel also may make a one-time purchase of an adult or child three-day "Disney's Armed Forces Salute Companion" Park Hopper ticket for up to five family members (including spouse) or friends for the price of an adult 1-Day Park Hopper ticket. [Currently $94 - added by Robert]
Disneyland Resort hotels are also offering special room rates for active or retired military personnel. For example, at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, active or retired members of the military and their families may find hotel rooms starting at $119 per night during value season, with great savings during other times of the offer period. This offer is available through June 12, 2009, and the number of rooms available at these special rates is limited.
For information regarding "Disney's Armed Forces Salute" at the Disneyland Resort, or to make reservations, military personnel may call 714-956-6424.
