Where to Ask Questions About Military Salute Tickets

If you have questions about this promotion, please don’t send them to us. All the information we have is listed above. If you need more info, here are some good resources:

Ongoing Military/DoD Disneyland Ticket Discounts

Active duty and retired military, DOD civilian employees and their dependents qualify for Disneyland ticket discounts.

Disney will check ID at the gate. Military personnel may bring in non-military guests with the military discount as long as they accompany the non-military person(s). If military personnel purchase tickets and give them as gifts to non-military users that they will not be accompanying, they risk having the recipient denied entry and the tickets confiscated.

Corporate, Government & Other Membership Discounts

Employees of large companies, major government agencies, or large membership groups like unions or professional organizations (typically those with 200-plus employees or members) may qualify to purchase discount Disneyland tickets, regardless of whether the company has any direct relationship with Disney. Tickets are offered through private websites operated by various ticket suppliers that service large organizations. A password is required to access those sites. Check with your company or organization’s benefits department to find out whether your company participates and how to get the password.

If you work for a company that is a major corporate sponsor at Disneyland (i.e. the company’s logo is on a major attraction), or has a significant business relationship with Disney, you might qualify for significant discounts on tickets. Check with your Human Resources department for additional info.

Additionally, employees of companies that have a business relationship with Disney sometimes qualify for deep ticket discounts. Reportedly employees of Chase (which offers Disney Visa cards), Kellogg’s (which does a lot of cross-promotions with Disney) and ADT (installs alarms for Disney) get ticket discounts, for instance. Check with your Human Resources department for additional info.

Some of these membership discounts can be significant, but others are no better (or even worse) than Disneyland ticket discounts available to the general public, so be sure to compare the final price (with any service fees and/or shipping) to the price from Undercover Tourist.

AAA Ticket Discounts

The American Automobile Association is subdivided into regions, with each region having a different independent affiliated club. Each regional club offers different attraction tickets. Some offer discount Disneyland tickets; some don’t. Some don’t have discounts, but offer a free bonus of some kind with the order, and if that bonus has value to you, that can be worth considering. Usually you’ll find that clubs on the West coast and driving distance from Disneyland are the most likely to offer discount Disneyland tickets. For the very latest information, you should always call your local club or check their web site to see what they offer. Obviously, you will need to be a member of AAA to get these discounts, but in many cases, a club in one region will allow members in other regions to take advantage of their discounts. It never hurts to ask!

Disneyland Area Supermarket Ticket Discounts

Some supermarkets such as Safeway, Albertson’s and Ralph’s (primarily in California and neighboring states) may carry promotional advance purchase discount Disneyland tickets. These are typically just the Southern California resident tickets offered at the same price you’d pay at the Disneyland ticket booths, but sometimes you can either get a little extra discount, or you can use their club card to get some kind of bonus, like a discount on gas or a future grocery discount. You may need to show an ID with a Southern California zip code in order to purchase the tickets.

Disneyland Ticket Discounts for Teachers

If you are a teacher in the US or Canada, be sure to check with your teachers’ union for possible discount Disneyland tickets. These discounts can come and go as Disney evaluates their various corporate and affinity discounts. Just because they had one last year doesn’t mean it’ll still be there this year (and vice-versa).

Some of these teacher union discounts can be significant, but others are no better (or even worse) than Disneyland ticket discounts available to the general public, so be sure to compare the final price (with any service fees and/or shipping) to the price from Undercover Tourist.

Disneyland Ticket Discounts for College Students

Many universities in Southern California offer Disneyland tickets and Disney California Adventure tickets at a small discount for their students. If you are a college student, check with your Student Union. You’ll typically only save around $1 on 1-day Disneyland tickets and $6 on 2-day tickets, but this is one of the very few ways to get a deal on 1-day tickets.

Credit Union Member Ticket Discounts

Some California credit unions may offer discount Disneyland tickets to their members. These deals are getting fewer and further between as Disney has been slowly reducing the number of deals it offers to corporate and group clients. Still, if you belong to a credit union in California, be sure to inquire about this.

Disneyland Tickets Discounts for Canadian Residents

Australia/New Zealand Resident Disneyland Ticket Discounts

Australian and New Zealand residents can purchase a special Disneyland ticket that is not sold at the parks: a 10-Day Disney Vacation Pass, which is basically a 10-Day Disneyland Park Hopper ticket, including one Magic Morning admission. Typically this ticket sells for only a few dollars more than a 5-day Park Hopper, making it a great deal for longer trips. This ticket is only sold in Australia and New Zealand, through travel agents including Flight Centre and Air New Zealand Holidays. Not all agents list the Disneyland tickets on their web site; you may need to call to get prices and buy the tickets. The price of Disneyland tickets purchased in Australia and New Zealand is adjusted periodically to conform to the current exchange rate. Thanks to Paula S for info.

Online Travel Agencies

Most of the time, the big Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) like Expedia, TravelocityOrbitz, Priceline, etc. sell Disneyland tickets at full price. Every once in a while, one of them will offer a special deal on one or two Disneyland tickets as a come-on, to get people to come to their site and hopefully book other things. The Disneyland tickets available on sale can change from day to day (or hour to hour), but it can be worth checking these sites to see if they have a deal on the specific ticket you want. Read our caveats below before purchasing. If you’re only going to save a few dollars, we think you’re better off with Undercover Tourist. If the OTA is offering some kind of super-deep loss-leader Disneyland ticket deal that’s going to save you a bunch, and you are comfortable with the various issues we mention, you may want to take that deal.

Important notes for buying tickets from OTAs:

Discounts on Annual Passes

It may be more cost-effective to buy an Disneyland Annual Pass (which Disneyland calls an “Annual Passport”) if you will be in the parks for more than a few days during the year. Be sure to include an Annual Pass in your calculations when deciding on the best pass to buy.

When purchasing tickets for a family, group or couple that will visit Disneyland together, it is often worthwhile to buy ONE Signature or Signature Plus Passport for someone in the party. That’s because in addition to the admission, a Signature Passport includes parking, many Disneyland Resort restaurant and shopping discounts and discounts at the Disneyland resort hotels. Just have the Signature Passholder use the discounts and parking privileges for everyone’s benefit. (Most restaurant discounts are good for the entire party — a few have limits.)

Southern California Annual Passport – Southern California residents within zip codes 90000-93599 qualify for a reduced-price Annual Passport (with some blackout dates). See the Disneyland Ticket Prices page for details.

DVC members qualify for $20 off new purchases and renewals of a Disneyland Deluxe, Disneyland Signature or Signature Plus Passport. The discount is valid for members of the DVC member’s immediate household only.

Occasionally, Disneyland Annual Passholders can purchase discounted park tickets for friends and family, we list those below.

How to Buy a Disneyland Annual Pass

You can buy your pass in person at any Disneyland ticket booth. If you have never had an Annual Passport before, you’ll have to get a photo taken by a PhotoPass photographer, which will be associated with the pass.

You can also buy a Disneyland Annual Passport from Disney in advance by phone at (714) 781-INFO (4636) or online. If you buy in advance, you can order a voucher for an actual Annual Pass. The voucher must be “activated” (exchanged for the actual Annual Pass) at the park. To activate the voucher, you’ll have to show photo ID (for adults).

Many supermarkets in Southern California sell “gift card” style vouchers for Disneyland Annual Passports at full price.

Generally we don’t see much point in buying an annual pass voucher in advance, except if you know the prices are about to go up and you want to lock in the current price. Even if the price goes up after you purchase it, your voucher is valid until the end of the calendar year without paying any extra. After that time the voucher still retains its value (what you paid) but you have to pay the difference in price if annual pass prices have gone up. The Annual Passport is valid for one year from the date you redeem the voucher.

You can renew an Annual Passport up to 40 days prior to its expiration date. Renewals are automatically activated immediately after the current pass expires. If you will not use a new Annual Passport within the 60 days after your old one expires, it’s better not to renew. Just buy a new pass when you actually need it.

If you are purchasing an Annual Passport that has blackout dates, be sure to read our advice page so that you can maximize your use of the pass at the time of purchase.

DVC Member Annual Pass Discounts

The Disney Vacation Club (DVC) is a Disney-operated timeshare program with properties at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Vero Beach, Hilton Head Island and Hawaii.
