When it's time to don the Mouse ears, military members have special ways to save on Disney vacations.

ShadesofGreen.org is a special program offered for military personnel and families in partnership with Disney. Discounted lodging at parks starts at $95 a night. Other discounts on park admission, dining, and transportation are available too.

Who exactly does this apply to?

  • Members on active duty, Reserve, and National Guard, Cadets and Midshipmen of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine Academies
  • Public Health Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps
  • Retired from active duty, Reserves, and National Guard
  • Any of a number of other honorably discharged veterans, surviving families members of deceased veterans, and more

The reality is it's so fantastic what people do serving our country, so I'm glad to have the opportunity to talk about special things available for them. A similar service I've talked about in the past is Armed Forces Vacation Club. Check them both out, and thank you for your service to our country!
