Walt Disney World Resort releases new discounted ticket offerings for U.S. military members each year. The Florida Disney Park, home to the Military Resort hotel Shades of Green, revealed its updated 2023 offerings on Tuesday.

Notably, the four and five-day Military tickets come with an all-new change: blockout dates. Though Disneyland Resort has long restricted discounted Military tickets with blockout dates, this is the first time Walt Disney World Resort has done so.

This change comes as Walt Disney World Resort announced increased prices on single-day tickets and Annual Passes, which are still unavailable for the general public to purchase.

In the past, Walt Disney World Resort has offered discounted Disney Resort hotel rooms to members of the U.S. Military. It’s unknown if those benefits will return alongside 2023 Walt Disney World Military tickets.

What do you think of the available U.S. Military discounts at Walt Disney World Resort?
