The Disney Parks Blog announced April 19 that it will extend its military discounts for tickets and rooms at Disney resorts. Previously set to expire September 2011, the extension of discounts is now good until September 2012.
Those who are eligible for Disney’s military discounts are active duty, active reserve or retired members and their families of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines or Navy. Disabled U.S. veterans with DAVRPM on their ID card are also eligible.
The military discounts include 4-Day Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Ticket and discounts on rooms at official Disney resorts.

Walt Disney World military tickets are sold as 4-day tickets. Commonly known as the 4-Day Disney’s Armed Forces Salute Ticket, these Disney’s Military Promotional Ticket offers three options for Walt Disney World:
