If we want to stay at BLT with the room discount for a trip in May 2013, can I book yet? I know the DVC resorts don't open up cash bookings until 7months prior to travel dates, right? If that is the case, then I can't book the room yet? Just don't want to miss the chance.

Steve from Military Disney Tips has listed a Q&A of the rules for the tickets on his website and they are more hard set this time. If you are going to use 6 tickets, all 6 tickets must be purchased at once and all members of your party must be present at activation.

I read that too, but it seems that they were saying we could now buy them say 2 at a time, but the servicemember has to be there. I am so confused.

I'm still trying to find out more info on this...

I queried Official Disney channels and they said you could buy tickets separately through the year, but could not use back to back (needed 7 days between).

I've also queried my Unofficial Disney contact, on what the actual implementation (back to back or not) will be at WDW, but he hasn't had the chance to get back to me yet.

Your husband can activate all six at once, the only one that needs to be there for activation is the member. This is how we have done it everytime int he past. Rather than drag my wife and daughter through the line, I go activate them, give the names, and we're always good.

Thank you Steve, that's exactly what I needed to know for sure. We won't be taking long trips this year, but may be making 3 seperate trips, hopefully.

Thanks. I hope that's accurate. Dh is deploying for a year soon. DS and I are planning a trip where I'll buy our two tickets. Not sure if we'll get another chance to go to WDW for R&R but want the option to buy three more tickets then if we can/want.

I asked him a question. Our friends are going down BEFORE we go and he said they could purchase our MNSSHP tickets at the window and bring them back for us to use. They return from Disney on September 18, and we are going down September 28. We are just going to give them cash, and get the tickets in advance just in case.

Good to know only the military personnel has to be present to activate. Didn't want to drag the whole family out for that ordeal!

Hello! I have what might be a dumb question which is sad considering we've been able to use the Hero Salute tickets before.

I know you have to purchase the tix by Sept 26, 2013 but can they be used after that? We are planning a trip for October 2013 to DisneyLand and wanted to be sure we could use the hero salute tickets.

Thanks!!

At close of business on September 28, 2013, any of these special tickets lose all value and can no longer be used.

Thank you so much. I guess I'll have to hope they renew it for the following year.

So I went by my local ITT office today to get passes for our trip in October and was told by the clerk that they aren't allowed to order them until after 01October.

Has anyone else had this happen?
