ANAHEIM, Calif. To honor members of the U.S. Armed Forces, the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort recently extended to active-duty military personnel, complimentary admission into Disney theme parks. This includes ticket discounts for family members and friends. "Disney's Armed Forces Salute" will be offered from Jan. 1 through April 30, 2002, by the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
Each active member of the U.S. military may obtain a complimentary seven-day ticket during the offer period. This ticket, specifically created for "Disney's Armed Forces Salute," will be valid for admission into the four Walt Disney World theme parks, a Disney water park, Pleasure Island and more for seven days from the date issued. The offer is extended to all active-duty military personnel, with proper military identification, including Coast Guard personnel and activated members of the Reserves and National Guard. Reservists must present their orders to receive the discount.
During the offer period, each Sailor or Marine may purchase tickets, discounted at 50 percent, to the Disneyland Resort theme parks for up to five friends and family members. Additionally, the active-duty member of the military accompanying the party will receive the same ticket free. If military personnel are unable to come to the Walt Disney World Resort during "Disney's Armed Forces Salute," their spouses will be eligible to purchase the special offer tickets one time during the offer period for up to five family members and friends at a 50 percent discount. The special offer tickets must be used within seven days after they are purchased. Each spouse may only purchase up to five special offer tickets for admission to the Walt Disney World theme parks.
"We think this is a great way to honor not only the nearly 1.5 million men and women in our active military, but the millions of family members and loved ones who support them," said Paul Pressler, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.
