Yes you can go on your non-park days. The 4 WP&M entrances are separate from the park days.

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!
DQ would be one of the "mores" in the Water Parks and More ticket. And it's 4 entries total, not 4 entries to each. ( I think you know this but your post might be read and taken the wrong way)

So you could do DQ in the morning and Typhoon in the afternoon and use 2 of your WP&M entries in one day. You could also do a Water park entry, a DQ entry AND a main park entry in the same day using 2 WP&M entitlements and 1PH day.

And your WP&M items last as long as your tickets are valid. So if you had an extra entry left on those tickets, you could still use it on your next return if the ticket is still valid, even if all your PH entries were gone.

Thank you both so much! We will surely get the plus option now! And yes I was confused about how many "thing" we could do, we only want to do DQ and the more option is cheaper then paying OOP on those days! Thanks!

This is a "canned" response modified for the Armed Forces Salute 2012/2013 tickets with the assumption you have both the Park Hopper and Water Park Fun and More (WPF&M) options.

Hopefully this will make it a little clearer. In effect you have two tickets with different privileges on one card. Everything expires at Midnight on Saturday September 28, 2013. Even if you use up all your major park days, the WPF&M entries remain valid until used or 9/28/13. (Note you do not have to use the days consecutively.)

You have four days of access to the four major parks (AK, DHS, EC, MK), and may visit more than one major park on a single day without any extra charges. Without the Park Hopper option you can only go to one major park per day.

You have four entries to the minor parks (BB, DQ, OT, TL, WWS, FG, W-SL). These may or may not be used on the same days as you go to the major parks. However, if you went to TL in the morning, Oak Trail in the afternoon, and Disney Quest in the evening of one day you would have used three of the four entries. (Note that leaving and returning to the same minor park on the same day does not use an extra entry.)

If you go to minor parks only on one day and do not go to a major park you do not use up one of your major park days.

If you were to go to a Water Park in the morning and then one of the major parks for the remainder of the day you would have used one minor park entry and one day of major park entry.

Note that with the ticket unless you have the hopper option you can only go to one major park per day. Unless you have the WPF&M option you cannot go to a minor park without upgrading or purchasing a separate ticket.

Military Tickets on the KTTW card

I know I have read this. Spent 2 hours looking again and can't find it, so I decided to repost.

We bought our Salute 4 day park hoppers at the PX last week. When we arrive can we have them added to our KTTW card or do we need to keep up with both sets of cards?

No unfortunately you can't add the Armed Forces Salute tickets to your rom key. A pain... but the price is worth it.

We have annual passes and live in the Tampa area. We have family visiting in January and February. Do we have to buy the two groups of tickets all at one time? Do we still need to buy one for my DH (the military member) or can he just use his annual pass? It seems a waste to have to buy him a ticket when we have the passes..

Hi,

Disney will allow you to buy the AFS tickets at different times, though military resellers like Shades and Base Ticket Offices might not.

I've heard from some of my readers who had APs and they were not required to buy the requisite member's ticket.

Are the AOA resorts eligable for the military discount? We're looking at staying in a family suite

When I booked out trip for this month we could only get the military discount for the suites but not on the Little Mermaid rooms, I believe you can still get 40% off the suites now.

Thanks for all this great info, yes it makes it really clear!

One last question.....I know the abbreviations for some things:

BB: Blizzard Beach
DQ: Disney Quest
TL: Typhoon Lagoon

What is Oak Trail? WWS? FG? W-sL??? thanks for any info!

Is it 40? I thought it was 30 because AOA is a value.

? about booking October 2013

We plan to go in October 2013. I know the 2013-2014 discounts won't be available when we plan to book this and they may not be available when we have to make our final payment 45 days prior to arrival. If we pay our reservations in full then the new rates are released can we modify our reservation and receive a refund if we are able to get our package at a lower rate?

Sorry if this has been answered many times, I read through the thread but just want to make sure I've got it right now that our plans are changing nad we may be traveling with non-military family. My DH is active duty. My niece and her family are also planning a trip to Disney this spring also so we contemplating going during the same time. Here is my understanding of the salute discount.

1. If we buy them Salute tickets my DH or I have to be there the 1st day of use, correct? Do we have to also be there the 2nd 3rd, and 4th day they enter the parks?
2. I though I read somewhere that I could reserve up to 2 rooms with the discount, but then I read something else saying that the military or spouse has to be staying in the room that you reserve. Is this correct? Thanks in advance!
