Can I buy the discounted tickets for friends and extended family?

Yes, the Disneyland military discount tickets can be purchased for friends and extended family.  However, the service member or spouse must be there with them, at least on the day they are activated.

Where can I buy the Disneyland military discount tickets?

The service member or the spouse must buy the tickets at their local MWR/ITT Travel Office. You can also might be able to buy them over the phone from Patrick AFB ITT, or Camp Pendleton ITT. This is a list of participating military travel offices.

The service member or spouse will need to activate them at the Disneyland theme park ticket windows.

Please note that each of the tickets must also be used by the same person on any and all days the tickets are valid.

What about the Disney Photo Pass Collection at the Disneyland Resort?

There doesn’t seem to be a 2021 update on the Disney photo pass. 

The Disney Photo Pass Collection can be purchased at the Main Street Photo Supply Co. at Disneyland Park or the Kingswell Camera Shop at Disneyland California Adventure. No more than two products per eligible service member or spouse.

This PhotoPass will allow you to capture photos in the park that are taken either on the rides or by cast members. They are located throughout the parks and once they take your photo they can add it to your PhotoPass account.

You will also receive a voucher for a Dining Print Package and will receive a Disneyland Resort Gallery Disc, featuring 350 high-resolution professional photos from around the Disneyland Resort.

Whether you are going to Disney World or Disneyland, make sure you understand the terms and conditions of the tickets.

Is there a military discount on annual passes?

No, there is no military discount on annual passes. In fact, Disneyland has ended the current annual passport program. They will be developing new membership offerings in the future. If you are a current annual pass holder, they will still be offering discounts in Downtown Disney and on Buena Vista Street.

Is there a military discount on Disneyland hotels?

They have just announced that they are offering great rates on select rooms at all three Disneyland Resort hotels, July 6th, 2021-December 16th, 2021 if you book by December 12th, 2021. You can read more about that here.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland

Galaxy’s Edge has been open for a few years, both at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

Everyone is very excited about this new Star Wars Land, here are a few things to know about Disney’s newest land:

Galaxy’s Edge is the Name of the New Land

Galaxy’s Edge takes place on a planet called, Batuu, which is a remote outpost planet on the edge of the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories. Batuu is not in any of the movies that are already out, and everything that happens there will be canon.

Black Spire Outpost

Batuu has spires, which are huge chunks of petrified rock that were once giant trees. They are also cracked and broken. One of the spires is blacker than the rest and that is where the name, Black Spire Outpost came from.

Black Spire Outpost is the village in Galaxy’s Edge that you will be able to experience when you go to the park. This Outpost is an infamous stop for traders, adventurers, and smugglers traveling around the Outer Rim and Wild Space.

Much of what you see in Black Spire Outpost was inspired by Europe and Africa.

What happened to Star Tours?

Star Tours the ride will stay and will not be relocated to Galaxy’s Edge. Star Tours opened at Disneyland in 1987.

Galaxy’s Edge Merch

There will be nine places to buy Galaxy’s Edge merchandise. No regular Disney or even general Star Wars merchandise will be available in that part of the park.

You Can Build Your Own Lightsaber and Droid

Savi’s Workshop is where you will be able to build your own lightsaber. You can choose between four disciplines; Power and Justice, Power and Control, Elemental and Nature, and Protection and Defense.

You will also be able to build your own droid. The Droid Depot is where you build your own droid and is run by a character named Mubo. You can decide whether you wish to build your own or buy a pre-made droid instead.

A Taste of Star Wars

There will be 5 main food stands in Galaxy’s Edge, and guests will be able to taste Star Wars for the first time. The planets will inspire a lot of the food and they will have “blue milk” as well as “green milk.’ These drinks will be a plant-based dairy creation like a smoothie with berry and melon flavors.

There will be a cantina called, Oga’s Cantina which will serve snacks, alcoholic, and non-alcoholic drinks.

Enhance Your Experience With Play Disney Parks App

You will be able to use the Play Disney Parks app to enhance your experience. There will be jobs, which are games that will ask you to complete different tasks around the parks. There is also going to be a main game that will always be running.

Galaxy’s Edge will be almost identical at both parks. The entrances will be different, but everything else is virtually the same. As time goes on, they will be adding new characters, and stories to Galaxy’s Edge. There will also be teasers of upcoming films in the land.
