Disney also recently released information about a military discount for park tickets, too. The discounted rates apply to 4, 5, and 6-day passes when staying from January 1, 2020 through December 18, 2020. And we’re excited to announce that there are NO blockout dates!
Canadian Resident Discounted Ticket Offer
Our neighbors to the North can now purchase a 4-day or longer Walt Disney World theme park ticket and save 20%, valid for Canadian Residents only. This discount ticket will get you into one Disney theme park each day, with an option to add a Park Hopper ticket for an additional cost if you want to visit multiple parks per day!
You can currently book this special rate now through February 7, 2020!
What’s To Come?
The current discounts available for everyone only cover the beginning of the year. Active duty and retired military can currently receive discounts for trips up until December 2020, but we expect there will be more discounts announced for throughout the year.
For years now, Disney has run a special offer giving guests a free Disney Dining Plan with their purchase of various vacation packages. Remember, Disney gave us a small taste of Free Dining for next year with 2020 Free Dining promo for kids but ONLY for Value Resorts , so does that mean they will be releasing their actual 2020 Free Dining packages soon? Free Dining had been announced in April FOR YEARS, but 2019 threw us for a loop when they announced it in January! THEN– In July this year, Disney released a SECOND round of free dining dates for the late fall to winter season.
So when will Free Dining appear? While it’s not out of the question to see free dining show up before 2020 hits, we’re going to say our best guess is January will be a busy time for Free Dining. Families that gift a Disney trip to loved ones for the holidays will start their planning come the new year, and it could be the perfect time to release Free Dining. If you don’t want to miss out when Free Dining IS released, stay in the Free Dining know by subscribing to our newsletter as well as following our Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts!
