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!!!
Published: January 6, 2009 at 10:14 AMIsn'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.

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.
