Disney Cruise Military Discount
Here you will learn who qualifies and how to find the best military discount Disney cruises.
How Do You Qualify For A Disney Cruise Military Discount?
First, you need to know if you will qualify for a military discount on a cruise. The discounts are available for Disney cruises to all active duty or retired military personnel. The cruise discount is also available to 100% disabled retired military personnel.
Reservists for the National Guard and Army Reserve with active duty orders also qualify for the Disney cruise military discount.
However, you need to show active duty papers that are dated as of January 1st of the previous year to qualify for the cruise discount.
The military discount for Disney cruises is also available to a spouse of a qualifying person. This means that a spouse can travel without a military person.
You can only book one Disney cruise stateroom at the military discounted rates. If you need more than one stateroom you can book one with the military discount, but any additional staterooms have to be at the usual rate.
Proof of military ID will be required when you check-in at the port for your Disney cruise. This will be asked for on your Disney Cruise Embarkation
Usually, the military discounts become available around 30 to 60 days before the Disney cruise sails.
Disney cruise line offers military discounts to fill up space on cruises that are not sold out. Don’t expect any military discounts further out than that as it is unlikely to be offered.This does mean that if you want a military discount on cruises you will most likely have to be flexible when you travel.
It used to be that you could book a Disney cruise at full rate and then convert it to a military discount if it was offered closer to the sail date. Unfortunately, you cannot do this anymore.
If you book a cruise at full rate and have paid the balance you would have to see what the penalties for cancellation are and if this would still save you money if you rebooked with the military rate.
Usually, this won’t work as the Disney cruise military discounts are offered last minute. Therefore the cancellation penalty will usually exceed the benefit of the discount military cruise rate.
If you are eligible for a Military Discount on a Disney cruise a Disney Authorized Travel Agent can help you.
We recommend Destinations in Florida – Get a Quote Now!. Their services are free and they will help you get the best military discount.

All of these are for Category 5A staterooms, but other stateroom categories may be available for different rates. A category 5A on the Disney Dream is a verandah stateroom which is located on either Deck 9 or 10.

This rate is for a Category 9C stateroom. These are Deluxe Oceanview staterooms located on Deck 2 of the Disney Wonder. I am a big fan of these staterooms as Deck 2 is so convenient for all the restaurants.

The Disney Wonder is sailing from New Orleans right now – this is a great chance to grab a good saving on a 4-night cruise on the Disney Wonder.
If I had to pick (and yes it’s impossible really) my favorite Disney Cruise Ship is the Disney Wonder. She is an amazing ship and has recently undergone a dry dock which had some great changes.
Tiana’s Place is one of the best Disney cruise restaurants. It’s a lot of fun and not just because you can get the fabulous Beignets for dessert!
