Tickets may be picked up at participating Base ITT Offices and Shades of Green (the military owned and operated resort at Walt Disney World).

It’s been over two and a half years since the last Special Military Salute was offered by Universal Orlando and I’m very glad to see them bring back something more than just the slight regular military discount.

You will need to purchase the regular military discount tickets though for the rest of your party at Your ITT or Shades of Green.
