I think it is great that Disney decided to bring this back. I think our military should be rewarded more often with free items, especially if they involve something they can enjoy with their families.

Three words: It's about time!!!

Our family will DEFINITELY be taking advantage of this! Yay!

EDIT: Saw this article regarding the deal for Disneyland: http://www.just-spotted.com/2009/01/disney-salutes-armed-forces.html

One more thing - other articles I've read say that the tickets ARE park-hoppers, but you can't add-on the "no expiration" option. And, there are discounts available for companion tickets.

This is GREAT news!!!

Isn't this the kind of stuff that would be done in the Soviet Union and Communist China to give the solider class a higher standing than other citizens? It's shameful that this disgrace occurs in the US, and that citizen soldiers would actually accept these handouts for performing a duty they choose to undertake. Instead of free tickets to theme parks, all these soldiers' families should receive a free copy of a George Marshall biography to learn from and aspire to emulate a true American citizen-solider.

Wow, since when did this site become a YouTube comments page?

If getting a theme park discount is all one needs to get a "higher standing" in society, then we're living in a Lake Wobegon world ("where all the children are above average").

Military is a different class of citizen and deserve all that is given. Other than "LEACHING" off of this country by the fact that you were born here, what have "YOU DONE" to keep this country safe over the last 7 years since we were attacked? What have "YOU DONE" to promote freedom and democracy? Have you risked your life? When you "actually do something", such as spend years away from your family or risk your life and not just be lucky enough to be born here, than you can criticize. At this point, you are no different than a leach, feeding off of the accomplishments of the military.
