    military rate is for people in the military or have a dd214.

    i need 5 rooms all my immediate family snd their kids.
    two were marines and did their time. one is national guard and still is.

    will the two that did their time count towards the military discount?

    If they are retired military they can make a reservation of their own, otherwise no just having military service does notcount.

    The Disney promotion is for active or retired military, not simply veterans. Here's a link to Disney's website with specifics on the Military room discount. There is a phone number in the info. I think your best bet is to call them and ask your specific questions.

    The Marines who are no longer active do not qualify for this promotion. I know there are months when Shades of Green has promotions for veterans. You could look at their website and/or call for into.

    Good luck.

    As PP said, they won't qualify just for being vets.

    You could try combining a few rooms since you're all family. Maybe get a 2 bedroom somewhere - or try and grab 3 family suites at AoA and fit more people into 1 room (not sure of your actual numbers) instead of getting 5 standard rooms.

    This. The current drilling guardsman would qualify for 3 rooms.

    I'm not sure how the military rate works at Disney resorts, but all eligible military members and their spouses can reserve up to 3 rooms each at Shades of Green. (So, for example, my Active Reserve DH and myself could reserve 3 rooms each, for a total of 6. We need to be in one).

    I just booked a trip for March and found Shades of Green's rate to be much cheaper than Disney's military rate (for a moderate resort). With the spacious rooms akin to the Disney Deluxe resorts and the proximity to the monorail @ the Polynesian, we think SoG is quite a deal.

    For Disney resorts, you can reserve up to 3 rooms as an active or retired military member.

    It's 40% off deluxe
    35% off moderate
    30% off value

    If I recall correctly.

    Shades of Green is of course another option the OP would have. It's just going to depend on what they're looking for most.

    Really?! You're sure about this? This would be fantastic!!! We're trying to plan a family trip, but need 5 rooms for everyone. So, you're saying my active duty husband could reserve 3 rooms at SOG and I could reserve 2 additional rooms at SOG?

    There is a lot of information on this thread! We are planning a trip to Disney sometime for the 2013 Christmas season. DD's husband will be active duty Air Force so not sure he will be able to come. (He reports for active duty in February) Can DD still use the military discount to book rooms at Disney and/or Shades of Green? Or does her husband have to come in order to get a military discount?

    A spouse can book, but the discount is currently only through September 2013.
