    Hi Sylvia,

    You are correct, this will be a very busy time of year to go to WDW. Because of the high crowd levels, Disney does not offer the Disney Armed Forces Salute during most of your time period.

    Resort discounts are not available from 30 March through 4 April and the highly discounted 4-day Salute tickets are not able to be used on 29 March through 9 April.

    If you have the option to move your trip earlier by a few days I would recommend that. If not, then you could at least get 2 nights of the military discount on your Disney Resort room.

    If you do need to go during that time, you’ll want to use the Regular Military Discounted Magic Your Way tickets available from your base ticket office, Shades of Green, or via FedEx from the Camp Pendleton ITT.

    For info on these tickets see: http://www.militarydisneytips.com/blog/disney-military-discounts/regular-disney-military-discount-for-walt-disney-world-and-disneyland-tickets/

    Hi, I am planning my first trip around March 28-April 4, 2015. Looking at your calendar this is a very busy time, right? Also, can you tell me if this is a time military discounts are accepted. What is the best way to plan the trip since I am going to try to use our military discount? Should I get tickets at a local base? Thanks!

    Against your recommendations, my entire family of 14 (parents, siblings, nieces, & nephews) are going to Disney World December 25 – January 2 (2nd option is December 20 – 28). This time frame fits in to everyone’s school and / or work calendar. Any thoughts on accommodations for a group of this size. The group of 14 breaks down into 5 different families with the largest being 2 adults and 2 two kids. I considered a Disney World resort to take advantage of the WDW airport transportation. When I went online, seemed like they only had premium resorts available. Last questions, we’re also visiting Universal Studios. If we don’t rent a vehicle or two, whats the best way to get our group from hotel to Universal? Thanks for you insight!

      Hi Sharhonda! While nobody can predict the weather exactly that far ahead, August at Disney World is typically hot and humid, and brief afternoon thunderstorms are common!
