Agreed! I had to call a 2nd time (last Friday) to get a CM that was able to book for me. The 1st one told me they weren't in the system yet.

I have a question I am hoping someone can answer.... Does all members of your party have to be present when purchasing the 6 military tickets?
For instance, can we purchase all tickets on a Thursday, even though the rest of our group isn't arriving until Saturday

TIA

Purchasing no. Activating yes and the active duty or spouse has to be there when activating tickets.

Thank you.
We usually purchase the tickets at one of the parks, so aren't all of them activated at the time of purchase? Can we start using them right away, and then rest of our group use them later in the week?

If you purchase them at Shades of Green or a Base ITT Office, they are not activated. You need to take them by a Disney ticket booth or Guest Relations office to get them activated.

This offer announcement didn't mention it but in the past all members of the party had to be present to activate the tickets.

BTW you are paying sales tax when you buy from Disney. There is none with Shades or ITT.

It would appear that if you are staying for a longer period your best best is to take advantge of the room-only discount, ignore the Armed forces salute tickets and get the normal Stars & Stripes tickets from SoG.

Or you get creative. We enjoy going to the water parks when we visit. We get the Water Park and More option and spend three days visiting Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, as well as a day at DTD with a visit to DisneyQuest. Those 4 day water park and more tickets give you up to 8 days of access to WDW parks if you play your cards right.

Can someone please make sure I'm getting this correct!!! We are going 12/8-12/15. It will be my father (Ret. AF) my mother, me, DH, DD (4) & DS (3). We will need 6 tickets each and we will not be park hopping. So is it better to just get all the tickets on base or is it cheaper to get the promotional tickets and then the rest on base??

We are currently booked at AoA in a suite with the free dining but I wonder if it would be better to take the 30% room discount? We have the following ADR's.

12/8 TRex Cafe
12/9 50's Prime Time & Sci-Fi
12/10 Tusker House & HDDR
12/11 Crystal Palace
12/12 CRT & 1900 Park Fare
12/13 Akershus & San Angel
12/14 Chef Mickey's

We have a lot of ADR's b/c my kids are the only two grandchildren and Dad wants to do as much as possible. He has extremely aggressive Stage 4 Prostate cancer due to Agent Orange exposure and this may be our only trip all together. I really want to get the best possible deal and make this trip great for Dad, so any help/advise you can give is GREATLY appreciated!!!

WooHoo!!! Just applied my discount! Removed my 1 day base tickets and only owe a tiny bit! Saved $900.

All that is left is to get our 4 day tickets, pack our bags and GO!!!

I cannot believe we have actually made this happen. I have tried for 5 years to take my kids. Either we couldn't afford it or my husband was deployed and now, we are actually going!
