Disneyland is one of my favorite places to go and it’s so great that there is such an amazing Disneyland military discount.
Growing up just 20 minutes from the park I went often, having annual passes from the age of 10 to 18. Since I moved out of Southern California, I have tried to visited whenever we were able to do so. During those visits we have used the Disneyland military discount 4 different times. The last of those in October of 2022.
Three of those visits we went with the 3-day Military Salute Tickets, which is an amazing discount! The last visit we received a smaller discount on one-day tickets that we bought at our MWR travel office.
There is a lot to love about Disneyland. The park has magic and for me a lot of that is based on nostalgia. I have so many memories, from my own childhood and even of my own children as they have gotten older.
I do have a difficult time with the crowd levels the last few years. I have never seen so many people at Disneyland. I am not sure if this will ever get better or not but it is something to think about. When I was a kid there were times of the year you could literally walk on the rides but that just doesn’t exist anymore, and I need to come to terms with that haha.

Where to buy the Disneyland tickets?
You will need to buy your tickets at participating US military baseticket office. A few years ago you could buy the Disneyland tickets at the park but you can no longer do so. You will need to buy them ahead of time.
You also still need to get a reservation for the days you want to go to the parks. You can do this once you get your tickets and link everything on the Disneyland app. Then, when you do go to the park, you should be good to go.
Who can get these Disneyland tickets?
The great thing about this military discount is it applies to quite a few groups of military. The Disneyland website states, “‘Eligible Service Members’ are active or retired members of the US military, including the National Guard, Reservists, the US Coast Guard, the US Space Force, the Commissioned Corps of the Public Health Service (PHS), and the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).”
When can you use these tickets?
It is important to know when you can use these tickets. They are valid through 12/13/24 but you must purchase them by 12/10/24. This does mean you will not be able to use these tickets around Christmas. However, in year’s past you were able to start using them by January 2nd, so if you do want to visit around the holidays, that first week of January is your best bet.
