With a military ID, here’s where that service can lead to savings.

Through SeaWorld Orlando’s Waves of Honor program, a veteran or their spouse (but not both) may purchase one-day tickets for themselves and three guests at 50% off. These tickets must be bought at, and additional tickets may be purchased at an on-base ITT or MWR office.

Universal Orlando offers a variety of ticket options and vacation packages at reduced cost for both former and active duty service members, as well as hotel bookings, sold at most military ITT or MWR offices.

For LEGOLAND Florida, veterans can find discounted tickets at their local ITT office that include a second day free. At the gate however, veterans will be offered a 10% discount on one and two-day tickets. Additionally, military families can book a stay at a LEGOLAND Resort hotel for rates as low as 195 dollars per night.

Walt Disney World has deals on up to five multi-day tickets for both former and active duty military personnel until Dec. 16, with prices ranging from 329 to 379 dollars depending on options. Similar to SeaWorld Orlando, either a service member or their spouse may purchase the tickets, and buyers are instructed to contact their nearest participating ITT or MWR office to do so. Even with these special passes though, reservations are necessary to visit Walt Disney World theme parks.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will welcome both former and current U.S. service members for free from Nov. 7-13. Tickets for up to four guests may also be purchased at the visitor complex Will Call windows for 50% off.

Closer to home, ICON Park will offer both former and active military personnel a number of special discounts at businesses throughout the entertainment complex.
