Keep us updated. Considering I just caused a huge scene in my ITT over the current tickets and used some not so nice language with the dummies who work there, I'm relying on you all for info.

As of right now there is nothing in either the Advisories section or the Ticketing Information section of The Hub saying anything about a new Military promotions.

If and when something is announced I will post official information.

Well the info which we've seen above is 1. not official yet, and 2. missing info and scrunched together. But it looks to me like the MK only is just for just 4 July.

In the past they have never allowed you to add days the the AFS tickets. I'm sure it will be the same this time.

When you find out more info can you ask if the remaining days from the 2010-2012 tickets could be used after the Sept 30,2012 cut off, during the 2012-2013 tickets.

Thank you,

From everything I have heard and read, those will end on 9/30/2012, that is a completely different promotion, but they could change their minds.

Yes the 2010-2012 Armed Forces Salute definitely ends on 30 Sept and the tickets will expire. Disney confirmed this a while back.

Sorry...

Sorry another question....just trying to figure out my options if the ITT press release that is out is correct. My husband,daughter, and I, and a few members of his family are going to Disney Dec 20th-26th. We are staying at shades of green, he is active military. We are comparing prices vs the 4 day Armed Forces Salute (adding days, going to universal on the black out days etc) or keeping what we have and just buying a 5 day park hopper.

My question is if we decided to buy the 5 day ticket for ourself, for his family bc they are only going Dec 20-24..Are we able to buy them the 4 day armed forces salute ticket?...I know the military person must be there to activate the tickets but would my husband have to be one of the people using one of those tickets?? or could we just buy it for them and then just be there to activate it?

Very curious to read the rules of any new promotion. I hope that things are more black and white and hard set with the new promotion and that it's easier to understand for the majority of the people who are eligible to use them. The current promotion has been kind of a mess, at least where the people here on the Dis are concerned.
