Disney Salutes The US Military With Hotel And Ticket Discounts

Disney Salutes The Armed Forces

In a long held tradition, Disney continues to salute our military and retired veterans with some great discounts on hotel and theme park tickets.

Disney’s long standing tie with the military started back in World War I when Walt drew patriotic cartoons for his school newspaper. Later during WWII, Walt continued this tradition of support of our troops by making training and propaganda films for the U.S. Military. With all the resources, money and manpower of the United States focused on defeating Germany, Walt sent Mickey, Donald and the reset of the gang off to war.

Shades of Green, ran by the Armed Forces Recreation Center, offers low and free rooms to active duty military personnel, 100% disabled veterans and others, so they can have an affordable way to visit the most magical place on earth. A time to relax and enjoy much needed time with their families, at a price they can afford.

Over the last few years we have been trying to about creating a website that is both fun for us, but has interest for the reader. We thought long and hard, but everything we thought of was not long term interesting to us. We needed something we could love and bring life to it, that is when it hit us, we should start a website about Disney. We knew though that there were many websites out there that already touched on many Disney subjects, we needed something to be different. It dawned on us while building the website that our love of runDisney could be combined with our excitement for all other things Disney to bring to life not only a resource for those who run Disney, but to Disney fans alike. We wanted to bring a bit of magic, and we hope you hang on for the ride as we explore the magical world of Disney World .
