Military discounts


#1

The details of this promo are being announced at our local base & Military Disney Tips.

[I]Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Military Discount Has Been Extended through 30 September 2013

The information below was released by an ITT Office and started spreading around the internet on 2 August. They were not supposed to release the info as Disney has not made their official press release. Which my contact at WDW Media Relations tells me will be mid-week (week of 6 Aug).

*HOT - Disney just began taking resort reservations with the new discount
[B]**OOPS - Disney cut off the room reservations until the press announcement next week…they are on lock down for all discount reservations past 30 Sept[/B]

The Disney Cruise Line
The Disney Cruise Line continues to offer Military discounts. Military Discounted Cruise Rates are usually announced 30-60 days out. Officials with the Cruise Line recommended to me that if you know your dates go ahead and make your reservations at the best rate you can find as far out as possible. Then when a military rate is announced for that particular sailing they will apply that rate to your reservations. They usually set aside fifty staterooms of all categories for the military rates (except for suites and the lowest categories).[/I]…

Sry, I couldn’t wait anymore. Too excited:cheshire:

Harry as it is now it’s the same as the past two years just $20 more.
Disney should be making the official announcement soon, but with all pre-leak information until that happens anything is on the table to be changed.

We’re planning a early summer trip regardless and trying to decide if we’re doing a split stay, better pools for the girls and less of a hike at the end of the day for me. A newbie retired family wants to go with us and i’d feel guilty about leaving them behind at SoG while we switched resorts but that 40% is just too sweet to pass on. SoG is changing both pools to be online with the rest of WDW (that part has been confirmed) and if the work is completed by our visit the girls may not want to switch. I’d love to try BW, something I could never do without those discounts.
