Universal Studios Confirms No Special Military Discount Tickets for 2012

Universal Studios Military Discounts
UPDATE: Universal just announced this offer for 2012-Summer 2013

Universal Parks Military Discounts has confirmed via email with Universal Studios Orlando Public Relations that the Universal Studios Theme Parks have no plans for a steeply discounted military theme park ticket in 2012.

While at the other two theme park chains; Disney’s popular Armed Forces Salute military discount continues through 30 September 2012 and Anheuser-Busch has yet to confirm if it’s theme parks will continue their Her’s to the Heroes offer, but their offer has run continuously since 2005.

Universal theme parks offered a steeply discounted military theme park ticket until early 2010. Since then they have offered room and ticket packages for military members, which have been extended through 2012. See Universal Military Packages for details.

Universal Orlando PR did remind me that regular military discounted tickets are still available through Base ITT Offices and Shades of Green.

For insight as to why Universal has not continued to offer better military discounts see this link and this one.

No More Universal Military Salute for 2010

NBC Universal Military Sales confirmed for me today that “Universal has no plans for another Salute Program”. This ends the recent era in which all three major Orlando Florida Theme Parks had Military Salutes in effect. Universal Orlando’s ran from January 2009 until last month. Disney World’s has run form January 2009 and ends September this year. While Anheuser-Busch has offered their Here’s to the Heros Salute year in year out since 2005.

You can still take advantage of Universal Military Vacation Packages that include room and park tickets.

If you can, take advantage of Disney’s Military Salute this year, it’s likely not to be continued next year.
