Here are 2 ways for military families to save at Disney Parks

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.

So 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
  • Those retired from active duty, in the reserves and in the 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 we’re glad to have the opportunity to talk about special things available for them.

A similar service we’ve talked about on Clark.com in the past is Armed Forces Vacation Club.

Check them both out, and thank you for your service to our country!
