Looking to go to Disneyworld (or somewhere similar) for Spring Break with the wife and 4 kids. Anybody know if there are any discounts for us at FDX? How about a military discount?

Doesn't have to be D-world, just looking for something warmer than here in MEM.....prefereably in Florida or the Gulf region. Maybe even a cruise leaving from Mobile or New Orleans.

Thanks.

check our Perx.com by Interline Vacations — Discount cruises, resorts, and tours for interliners (http://www.perx.com)
I've used them for cruises and gotten some pretty good deals.

This from the "green screen's" mail system:

From: WDISNEY
Subject: Ticket Procedure and Information

The FedEx and Disney partnership has ended as of 12/31/02. FedEx no longer is able to offer any type of discount on Disney admission tickets and/or Disney hotels.

You may want to check with your local travel agent or your AAA office for any type of FedEx discounts available.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year!

Shades of Green was/is the military hotel in Orlando, and you should be able to pickup discount tickets from your base travel shop.

Travel Industry (i.e. pilots) get a discount at the disney hotels. Can't recall the amount, but just call and they can tell you. I believe we ended-up booking with Costco Travel instead due to the extra stuff they offered. Also, don't forget the volunteer promo Disney is doing right now for 1 day free ticket. Might not work for your plans, but probably worth checking out.

Most any military base MWR dept. likely has discount tickets. My local Marine Corp Exchange has an MWR desk where you can pick up tickets ... :D

These guys consolidated a lot of the info you are looking for. It looks like there is a deal for multiple 4 day passes for $100 each. It costs almost $100 for one day at normal prices!
With the 4 days passes you can visit a different park each day. If you want to go to multiple parks in one day, a park hopper can be added for $25 each ticket.

We did Disneyland a few months ago. Go to any ITT office and military gets a free three day pass, not all ITT offices know about it, or have them. I ended up going to Los Angeles AFB to find them. The wife got a three day pass for 90 dollars and the kids were 60 each. Not bad 210 for tickets for a family of 4 to spend 3 days in Disneyland. Fedex did not have any discounts. I Recommend Disneys new California adventure park as well. (included) Hope that helps.

Just did the Military Discount at Disney. Do it at Disney at any group ticket counter. 4 Days, One park a day for $99. add park hopper for twenty something more. No need to worry about ITT.

What does the park hopper do?

...allow you to more than one park on any given day?

TB, or anyone else familiar with Disney World.

Am headed to Orlando for spring break for only two days.(probably a day at each Magic Kingdom and Epcot).
Understand that I just need to present Military ID to a group window for a discount.
For two adults and 2 kids what can I expect to pay?
Thanks in advance.

The military deal was $99/person for a four day ticket. If you only have 2 days, it will still be $99/per. Don't buy the park hopper if you plan to only do one park a day. You might look up what it would cost to buy regular tickets for 2 days. My bet is that $50/per person per day for two days at Disney is still better than walk up, no discount tickets. Have fun. Get the Iphone app for the waits at each ride and use the fast pass feature for the rides you really want to go on.

Glad to help. let me know if you need anything else. Don't forget the fre tickets for 4 to Sea World for military.

Second-hand gouge: Since FedEx is a sponsor of the Expedition Everest ride at the Animal Kingdom at Disney World, you can supposedly show your FDX ID card and get escorted to a "lounge area" inside the mountain to cool down & relax. When you are ready to ride, you go to the front of the front of the line. Can anyone confirm or deny? Hope it works for y'all! :)

I'm hearing the $99/person mil day is "blacked out" over Spring break.:(

Is this a "walk up" deal with ID or do you have to get the tickets in advance?

Anyone got gouge on mil rates for Universal Studios in Orlando?

The link below works for any Anheuser Busch Park. The Navy ITT office at the airport has great deals for everything else in MCO. Deep discounts.

No you don't.

You have a lot of cherished preconceptions about people here.

Visiting AOC would be like visiting a sausage manufactory.
