Disney is the destination where everyone’s wishes come true, at least that’s what they say. When you plan a trip to Disney theme parks, don’t forget to use the military discounts that they offer on four-day, five-day, and six-day on Disney Military Promotional Tickets. With the military discount, the Park Hopper option is available so you can hop between multiple theme parks in a single day. There’s also the Park Hopper Plus option for $50 more that includes all the benefits of the Park Hopper pass that we’ll include later on.
Disney is pretty much a household name that most people, at least in the United States, have probably heard of if they aren’t living under a rock. The Walt Disney Company, more commonly known as Disney, was founded on October 16, 1923. The company is a leader in animation and was popularized by its animation before diversifying into live-action, production, theme parks, and many other creative ventures. Disney created popular classic films like The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, plus more recent blockbusters like Frozen II, Toy Story 4, and Avengers Endgame.

In 1928, the first Mickey Mouse cartoon was created after a failed previous character called Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. On July 18, 1955, Walt Disney opened up Disneyland and in 1965, Disney World was announced. Disney World was renamed Walt Disney World after Walt’s death to honor his life and his vision for Disney. During the 1970s and into the 1980s, Walt Disney World received a lot of the company’s attention. In 1978, a second Walt Disney World theme park was announced, plans for EPCOT center which would open in 1982, as well as the first Disney theme park outside of the United States which would be built in Tokyo, Japan.
There are many aspects to the Disney empire, with many hands in the pot as far as who has had power in the company over the years. There have been many collaborations with other brands like Pixar, who Disney now owns.

Enjoy Disney With Other Ways To Save
Disney theme parks can be a magical place to visit, especially if you have children. Walt Disney’s vision was to create a place that was fun for children, but also fun for the adults. There are other ways to cut down costs when visiting the “happiest place on Earth.”

Some of these methods are:
- To visit during the offseason. These times can range from mid-August to the end of September, mid-November to mid-December, mid-January to mid-February, and the first few weeks of May. Prices are typically cheaper during this time, and they definitely skyrocket during holiday weekends.
- Book cheaper flights by lining up offseasons for both the park and the airlines. You can also find value tickets for Disney in the off-season, where single-day tickets are sometimes cheaper than buying package tickets for multiple days.
- Save on smaller things like packing in your own food and reusable water bottles rather than the expensive costs of food and drinks inside the park.
- Stay off-site. Disney hotels might be convenient, but they’re incredibly expensive depending on where, when, and how long you stay. Find a hotel that isn’t a Disney hotel and you might cut costs down dramatically.
Staying with Disney is a great family vacation that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. It can be expensive and will most likely require budgeting regardless of the military discount. Don’t forget to call your local military office, as well as do your own research on the best times to travel to your desired location to find the best deals available. The extra research could save you hundreds of dollars. Disney is a place where everyone can be a kid again, at least for a little while, which we could all use and experience from time to time.
