This Veterans Day at the Westgate Salutes Military Weekend 2022 event, 1,000 members of the U.S. armed forces who are currently on active duty, veterans, and Gold Star families will receive complimentary three-day and two-night stays in Orlando.
Since launching this project eleven years ago, Westgate has given more than 26,000 complimentary vacations to the incredible military members who have served their country and their families.
Beginning at 9 a.m. EST on Friday, November 11, 2022, the first 1,000 qualified military personnel to sign up will receive a complimentary stay for up to four guests in a Studio Villa at Westgate Vacation Villas & Town Center Resort from Friday, December 9, 2022, to Sunday, December 11, 2022.
This offer is only available through the Westgate Resorts Mobile App. Service members must download the Westgate Resorts Mobile App and create a free World of Westgate Loyalty account to register.
The free stay form will only be available to World of Westgate Members, and the only way to sign up is through the Westgate Resorts Mobile App. The final reservation must also be confirmed with a valid DD214 form for combat veterans or a current active Military ID.
“It is our honor to welcome and pamper thousands of the most deserving American heroes for a weekend filled with great music, beautiful weather and patriotism,” said David Siegel, founder, president and CEO of Westgate Resorts. “Having served in the military myself, I know the importance of quality family time for those who are actively serving or who have recently served our country.”
This annual Westgate event is jam-packed with family-friendly events, such as a 5K run, military vehicle displays, live entertainment, and much more. In addition, the event’s free admission to Westgate’s Shipwreck Island Water Park allows attendees to experience Jen Kramer, a world-renowned illusionist from Las Vegas.
The Chris Weaver Band, a Nashville favorite, and Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino’s Soul of Motown, an upbeat musical salute honoring Motown superstars, will perform at two exclusive outdoor performances for invited military families.
The patriotic weekend will close with a fantastic fireworks display illuminating the night sky. In recognition of our nation’s brave service members, Westgate Resorts is also donating $5 from the sale of each Whiskey Romeo speciality cocktail to veteran charities. This drink is created with Horse Soldier Bourbon, lemon juice, maple syrup, cinnamon, and a lemon twist garnish. All weekend long, customers can indulge in the $12 Whiskey Romeo and lend a hand to their fellow American service members.
