    Military discount thread (MERGED) Please post all discounts here! 18th Jun 08 at 10:48 AM
    Am looking to go to Florida next year August or September time. Would like to fly into Sanford or Intl. Only want one week doing all the disney and seaworld things but wanted to know where the best place to book everything from as will have military discount as well.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    Ask them to show their ID when they check in.

    If they can't then make them pay the 10% they saved when booking!

    Forces Travel
    We've found Forces Holidays really good - they are a small company based in St Albans; most of their reps have spent time in their resorts and they offer a reasonable selection of things like centreparcs (Europe); canvas etc; but also Spain and Greece etc - very reasonable. And great Cust Service!

    And the best thing about it is...that you don't have to be a member of the forces to benefit, anyone can book!

    Disney Discounts
    If you go to "Shades of Green" a US Forces Hotel inside Disney (Magic Kingdom if memory serves but it is signposted) you can get there without paying just show your ID at the entrance. Once there you can buy discounted park tickets. You can also park for free at the hotel and they run a shuttle to all disney parks and waterparks regularly. I'm sure this is listed in the discount brochure.

    I thought that being British we could get into shades of green to purchase tickets but couldn't stay there. Can someone confirm whether they've stayed there or not? Ta!

    Discounts at Sea Life ans Busch Gardens
    Hi all.

    Go to www.herosalute.com and register with your address where you are staying in America. You need a Zip code. When you have done that, you can print off a voucher for free enty to one of the resorts listed and take it to the park. You get a wrist band/dog tags and are really looked after while you there.

    It seems unless your foreign forces under US Orders then this is the case:

    Unfortunately, you would not be eligible to stay at Shades of Green.
    You would be eligible to come to the resort to purchase discount
    attraction tickets. Please view our current attraction ticket prices at
    http://www.shadesofgreen.org/ATS.htm.

    I am not Courtney she is the lady that replied to me But yes tickets only unless you are in the US under US Orders.

    We always ask if places do a Forces discount .... they aren't always advertised but loads of places will give you the equivalent of student discount or sometimes staff discount.
    Vue cinemas is one we use regularly - you can get in for student price, it saves a fortune.

    Discounts at Sea Life
    Hi Somerset Snowman,

    Thanks for this. I looked at the voucher but it wouldn't accept a UK postcode. Good advice to put your hotel address in.

    We'll be there over Christmas and New Year. The flights have cost an arm and a leg so we're looking to make savings wherever we can.

    Forces Discounts Sites
    http://www.forcesdiscounts-mod.co.uk/ is the official MOD discount site. Agree that some of the discounts are pretty good while others are just discount vouchers available elsewhere. Another good link is http://www.forcesdiscount.com which has been going for over ten years.
    I noticed today they have put up info on Stamford Homes Forces Package offering 5% deposit paid and other discounts for property purchase.
