Has anyone used the 4 day Salute Tickets back2back? I've heard the policy has changed, but is it one of those YMMV things, or is this official policy?

My WDW Media contact has briefed me that back to back use is allowed now. And when I was on property in Late Oct/early Nov I asked the castmember I bought one from at Epcot Guest Relations if they were allowing it and he told me yes, the only restriction was 6 during the offer.

Great. Thanks. We have 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) in the famiy. We would like to do 6 days at WDW. Could we then buy the 6 salute tickets, and get our child under 10, a regular military discount 6 day hopper ticket or would it have to be one of the adults?

Where can you activate the military tickets?

I know about the 4 major parks and DTD, anywhere else?

Which activation location is nearest to Shades?

Can you purchase the tix at Shades 24 hours a day? if not what hours?

How do you get to Shades using Disney transportation? Make your way to Poly then walk? or go to a park then take the Shades bus?

Those are the only locations where you can activate the tickets...

The TTC would be the closest location.

The Shades ticket office is open 8a-7p.

Without a car the two way you mentioned are the only way to get to Shades. If you don't mind paying sales tax you can just buy your tickets at any Disney ticket window. Costs a little more but you'd be paying for the convenience.

Just a minor clarification - there is no shades bus from MK or Epcot, and the Shades bus from Studios and Animal Kingdom only runs once per hour.

Easiest from anywhere:
TTC to Shades bus (found in the bus parking area)
or
Poly then walk to Shades

You can also activate the Salute tickets at both water parks and Disney Quest.

Sorry, got confused by Steve's post. First he agreed that parks and dtd are the only locations then he added TTC.

So, I gather tix can be activated at all of the following whenever they are open:
MK
AK
Epcot
HS
DTD
TTC
BB
TL
DQ
correct? Thanks.

I'll purchase at Shades and activate at TTC on my check-in day to be set for emh the next day.

That's what we generally do. It's not a long process to activate, but the last thing you want is to get tied up in line, in the morning, doing it. Mid afternoon TTC is nearly dead and you can usually just walk right up and be done in about 5 minutes.

I see that someone asked if you can seperate the Park days from the waterpark days......is this also true of DisneyQuest? We are getting the 4 day hopper pass and are thinking about upgrading to the plus option to go to Disney Quest.....however we would want to go there on our down days from the parks....can we do that? Is is 4 visits to each "thing" park, waterpark, DQ? Thanks for any info....


Also anyone know if they opened the room discount up to the LM rooms? My DD really wanted to stay there but when I booked the Military discount was not being offered for the LM rooms, only the suites....thanks for info!
