#5

That’s so awesome! I’m glad they’re doing something for all our men and women who serve. They really deserve a good deal like this.


#6

Wow! That is great news!


#7

How wonderful!! I think it’s great Disney is doing this. And yes, I am wondering if I can talk my cousin-in-law who is in the Army into taking a little family trip!! :laugh: Is that horrible.


#8

I think that is a great idea becaue a 5day Park Hopper for 125.00 is an amazing deal! Plus the military person gets in free for 5 days!!

I just emailed Dewey a link to this thread - I wonder if Franco can use this?!


#11

This is great. I hope a lot of them can take advantage of this :happy:

Too bad our tickets are already bought and paid for.


#12

Wow!! This is a great thing for Disney to do to show appreciation to our armed forces!!!

I’m going to pass this along to my cousin who is in the coast guard! I’ve been trying to talk her into taking her daughter!!


#13

That is truly awesome. Thanks for sharing!


#14

I think I just talked my cousin into coming with us in May!!!

I wanted to add…I don’t need her discount as I already have my own tickets thru DVC. I just thought this was a great opportunity for her to take her daughter!


#15

I’m excited about this and think it’s wonderful. I don’t know any active military… but I’m excited. :happy:


#16

It sounds like it for retired military too. You would think that would cover half the country. Hmmmm, someone at church fought in WWII, mayhe he’d like to take us.


#17

What a great way for Disney to honor our troops and let them know that we appreciate them. Soldiers deserve a vacation and a thanks for their service.


#18
