We didn't even use the salute tickets because for our family of four, it didn't make sense. The price is great, however, only if you want to stay for only 4 days...and our trips are usually 9-12 days so it just doesn't work.

We LOVE the room discount and absolutely use that! We also used a military discount to purchase our AP's this year (before the price increase) and got 4 AP's (2A, 2C) for $1928, which we thought was a fabulous price and will cover us for at least 2 trips.

Hopefully they'll make the ticket issue more user friendly for those that use them.

Just my take on the rumor, at the bottom it does say tickets limited to 6 per sponsor. This *may* be a way to deal with confusion. We won't know for sure until the official military discount is out. The ticket sticky helps, and there seem to be lots of folks to help with questions, that's the best part of the DIS!

Whatever they decide to offer, I so appreciate Disney offering these discounts. They certainly don't have to. Our (now adult) kids spent most of their childhoods in multiple overseas locations. We know we weren't unique, lots of military families do this. Family vacations at Disney just weren't possible then. It is lovely for us to be able to have family time at WDW, now.

Heard from my contact, the Manager of the Disney Military Sales Dept. There will not be an official press release till "mid-week" next week.

He said he'd send it to me as soon as he has it.

It seems that the Disney call center was taking some resort reservations at the 30/35/40% rates.

Some people got reservations, but now there is a report that the call center has been told to stop till the press release.

You could try if you are wanting a hotel reservation, you might find someone to make it

Does anyone know if they go as deep as looking if I'm separated to get the resort discount? I'll have a valid i.d. until Jan 2013 our trip is in October 2012.

Separated isn't divorced; no one will know or care as long as you have a valid ID. However, without the sponsor, you can only buy 5 tickets, if the rules stay as they have been in the past.

I am so very grateful for this news. Thank you Disney and also Thank you Steve for all you do for the Military. I was so hoping to hear something soon and I am excited now to continue to plan our trip for our family. Thank you Thank you so very much. I know Disney did not have to offer this to us and I am so appreciative of it.

I was actually just talking about resorts. I think the tickets go into deeper (because they've taken gov issue i.d. and drivers license) than getting the discount on the room. I just wanted to make sure on the room before I tried it. I caved and bought an AP since we're going again in December this year and March of next year.

They are supposed to check for a mil ID at check-in.

So with a valid ID you'll be fine. They have no way to know you've separated (from the military).

Separated from the military or from your spouse lol? I just offer my ID each time we've used the hotel discount so I didn't know if they actually ask for it.
