Universal Orlando does not sell Military Discounted Tickets directly at its ticket locations!
You can certainly physically go to any of these locations if it is convenient for you.
But if you don’t live near a base that has a Ticket Office and don’t live in Central Florida, there is a way for you to get your tickets.
Buy them Long Distance!
There are many locations that will assist you with your purchase and then ship your tickets to you for a shipping fee (usually about $12).
Locations to Contact
Note the first two locations listed (Patrick and Pendleton) are my preferred go-to Ticket Offices. They are friendly, fast, and efficient! I just bought a Disneyland Salute ticket from Camp Pendleton and had it in my hand here in Ohio in less than 24 hours! Patrick is also very fast, they provide you the ticket numbers via email within minutes of making your purchase and physical tickets within 2 days. Shades of Green can sometimes take a long time with the back and forth communication process, so only use them for ticket’s that others don’t sell.
Patrick SFB ITT
Just go to the Patrick SFB ITT Page, then click on “Order By Phone.” Fast service and $10 FedEx Fee.
I love using the Patrick ITT! This is where I get my tickets, I use them over driving the half hour to my local base! Instead of waiting the 2-3 days for FedEx from other Ticket Offices that sell long distance (like Shades of Green), the Patrick ITT office enters your online order into WDW’s ticketing system and WDW directly emails you with the ticket numbers within minutes of your paying over the phone. Therefore, you can link your tickets the same day as your order instead of waiting for the FedEx. You still get the hard card tickets by FedEx a couple of days later.
The Camp Pendleton ITT can take your order over the phone and then send them to you.
There is a $10.oo fee for them to send your tickets to you via FedEx. You can pay for your tickets and fee with your credit card.
Disney World tickets require a 2 week lead time! This is because they may need to order the specific tickets that you want.
To order your tickets, contact the Camp Pendleton ITT Pacific Plaza at (760) 725-5805. Please note Disney Armed Forces Salute Ticket eligibility is for those who are career retired, as in 20+ years of service or 100% medically retired (DAVPRM).
Their hours of operation are: Mon-Sat: 8:30am-6:30pm (Pacific Time)
Shades of Green
Shades of Green’s Ticket Office sells all of their available tickets long distance.
There is one issue here though! They will not sell you tickets more than 30 days prior to your arrival date. When you want to order, just say your arrival date is a date about 25 days in the future.
You should allow ample time for the transaction to take place. Depending on volume it can take from a few days to 3 weeks!
As of late December 2023, the ticket delivery process has changed at Shades of Green.
When you order, you can either have them:
- Send you the ticket numbers via email with no fee (this is what Patrick SFB has done for years!)
- FedEx (2-day) you the physical tickets for a $15 dollar fee
Shades of Green sells activated Disney Armed Forces Salute tickets. They are the only location that does this (though others claim to). What this means it that the Salute tickets are ready for use. You can walk right up to a park entry and tap in. When purchasing from all other Military Sellers you will need to activate your Salute Tickets at a Disney ticket or guest relations window prior to use.
Note: Shades of Green refuses to sell tickets to you unless you are within 30 days of your vacation dates. This horribly misguided policy can cause havoc with Theme Park Reservations for busy time periods. Feel free to tell them any date that you want (within the next 30 days), they have no way to know your travel dates (unless you are staying with them, but why would you with the great Disney Resorts that are available?)
The Orlando ITT has been praised for fast service lately!
See our full info page (with contact info) on this little known location.
NAS Corpus Christi MWR
Order via email. Email them ([email protected]) and they will email you the needed forms. They have a $12 FedEx Fee.
Office hours are Monday, Wednesday and Fridays only from 0830-1630, closed from 1300-1400.
Please Note: Some bases sell paper exchange vouchers when you purchase Disney Armed Forces Salute tickets. Some bases sell these paper versions, some sell plastic tickets (which Disney still calls Exchange Vouchers). In either case you can link or scan them into MDE.
Other Base Ticket Office Options
Make sure that you allow plenty of time to complete your transaction. Sometimes the ticket or pass that you want needs to be ordered.
Plan to make your purchase at least 2 weeks before you want to have them!
