Hi, 

Thank you for your question! You and your wife can obtain a Senior Pass, and there is more information about how to obtain one at this link: https://store.usgs.gov/senior-pass There are also discounts available to disabled veterans and currently serving U.S. military families, and you can find out more about that here:  https://www.nps.gov/planyourvisit/passes.htm#CP_JUMP_5088576 
Otherwise, there aren’t many discounts. However, do keep in mind most National Parks in the U.S. are free! Only 118 out of 417 National Parks have an entrance fee. 

Best,
Sarah

Hi, 
Thank you for your question!
 
Glacier National Park is an ideal place to view wildlife year round. However, if you’re looking to see some of the rarer species, or just especially active wildlife living in Glacier’s wetlands and forests, May or June would be your best bet. 
 
Hope you have a wonderful visit,
Sarah

You can also purchase any of the passes, including the multi-park annual at the entrance gate or visitor center if the specific park doesn't have "mandatory" gates.

If you dislike using a credit card online, that's a good option.

By mandatory gate I mean parks like Yellowstone or Grand Canyon, where the park has gatehouses at each entrance where NPS rangers will greet you, give you the park information handouts, and let you purchase your pass.

Other parks, like Death Valley, have many routes in that are not always manned and don't even real gate houses. On the main roads there are at least signs when you enter the park, and sometimes a sort of ticket kiosk where you insert your money and get a pass, but you can generally skip these and just stop at the first visitor center you come across and buy the pass from the NPS staff there.

Late night entry at the parks I've seen, even with proper gatehouses, generally follows that second, "honor system" method.
