All About the Disney Cruise Military and Veteran Discount
Disney often offers substantial military discounts on sailings with sail dates less than three months away. But their military discounts appear or go away daily, based on availability.
The only way to know for sure which sailings offer a military discount is to Contact Us.
But even if Disney is not offering a military discount of their own, any military personnel, veteran or dependent who books a Disney cruise with Military Cruise Deals qualifies for our discount.
How to Book your cruise with a Military Discount
You may book directly online, however… to confirm that the rate shown online was the lowest rate available to you and to get our additional discount applied. we strongly suggest that you call MilitaryCruiseDeals.com at 1-866-9-MILITARY (866-964-5482) and speak with one of our cruise specialists.
Be sure to tell the agent that you or a family member is part of the Armed Forces. Active, or retired. The agent will then help you find the right cruise.
If Disney is offering their own military rate, you will get that rate for as many cabins as they allow. Even if no military discount is offered by Disney, we will apply our military discount to the other cabins.

The Dream is one of Disney’s newest ships. Built in 2011, it is over 1000 feet long and holds 4000 passengers. This Disney ship smartly offers enough adult-only areas for adults to get a kid-free reprieve when needed: two adults-only restaurants and one adults-only lounge and one adults-only pool!
The Dream offers 3 day and 4-day cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay from Port Canaveral – perfect for the family who only has time for a short trip!
Built in 2012, the Fantasy is Disney’s newest ship of all and shares many of the same features as the Dream. The Concierge Royal suite and Concierge 1-bedroom suite have TWO BATHROOMS to make cabin sharing with your family as easy as possible! Many rooms sleep up to five, so most families can fit into one cabin. Like the Dream, the Fantasy has many adult-only areas. The Disney Fantasy departs out of Port Canaveral, Florida, alternating 7-night cruises to the Western Caribbean or the Eastern Caribbean.
Disney is the go-to for cruising families. They have many cabins for 5, beautiful shows, and meet-and-greets with classic characters!

How can you save you money even AFTER your cruise is booked and paid for?
Imagine if your travel agent called you and said, “I’ve been keeping an eye on your cruise. This morning the cruise line lowered the price of your cabin category by $200 per person, and I was able to refare it to that new lower rate. So, I just wanted to let you know that your balance due is now $400 less! That’s all. Have a nice day.”
Or, “I checked on your cruise status today and there was a free-upgrade offer available, so I can get you moved up from deck 6 to deck 10 if you’d like?” Or an ocean view cabin up to a balcony for free! Things like this happen often and we are happy to help look for opportunities like that for you!
We make phone calls like that on a regular basis, because even after our clients book with us, we STILL are on the lookout for ways they can get more and pay less.
Between the time you book your cruise and your cruise sails, we monitor the cruise line’s rate, and if we notice that it becomes less than what you paid, we contact the cruise line and request that they refare your cruise to the new lower rate, upgrade you to a higher category, or provide an onboard credit for the difference. If you notice before we do, call us!
