I am an ex-serviceman of the British Forces serving from 1986 – 1995 in the RCT (Royal Corps of Transport). As a veteran, are there any theme parks which offer free or discounted entrance to British Veterans? I still hold my service records as proof of service and active service along side the US Services in the Gulf War 1991. –Andy.
Andy, generally speaking, if you currently have access to US installations such as the “Shades of Green” in Orlando, Florida, or other MWR/ITT offices on US military bases, you will have access to many theme park military discounts (including Disney World). Although most theme parks will have their own policy on extending military discounts to Allied nations, the Morale Welfare and Recreation (MWR) center at the US Navy facility in Orlando will allow UK and other Allied military members access with their nation’s military ID card and/or NATO Travel Orders.
For Military personnel, discounted tickets are sold at Military bases. You can also get specially priced tickets via – Mail Order: Retired, Active, Reservists, National Guard and DoD Personnel can order discount tickets via mail order by calling the Commander, Navy Region Southwest 619-767-6000 or Air Force Central Ticket Program at 210-652-2855. You can also pick them up in-person at US Navy NTC ITT Orlando:
7151 Earhart Dr
Orlando, FL 32827
For more information, please contact your military installation’s Ticket Office. You can also pick up discount tickets in-person at the Shades of Green (Military MWR Resort) in Orlando. Additionally, you can call Shades of Green (the military resort facility) at the Walt Disney World® Resort directly 888-593-2242 or reference the Shades of Green website at the following URL: www.shadesofgreen.org
Enjoy your vacation!
