The Armed Forces Salute limitations are separate for the two locations. And you cannot purchase tickets for one coast from the other.
Thanks for the info. What do you mean about not being able to buy tickets for one coast from the other? According to my local AFB's ITT website (I am in AZ), I can purchase Florida tickets but they are special order and may take up to 14 business days to receive.

It means you can't buy your Disneyland tickets while visiting Disney World.

Oh I see, thanks.

Called ITT today and was told that the military ticket promotion for DLR and WDW is indeed separate, so a service member can purchase 6 tickets for DLR and another 6 tickets for WDW.

I have a question for everyone...I have checked with ITT at a military base nearest our house and was told that they wouldn't get any tickets for the new promotion until probably October 1st. She told me that they haven't even ordered the new tickets. However, I know I read somewhere that tickets would be available after August 17th.
I am just concerned because we leave October 11th and there is no guarantee they would be in by the 11th.
Has anyone bought tickets at their base or post recently for the new promotion year??
Any thoughts or ideas?? We aren't staying at Shades and have ADR at AK first thing on Friday the 12th.
Guess I am just being really antsy and paranoid...haha
Thanks for the help!

If you cannot get them at a military base (or SoG) you can buy them at any Park Ticket or Guest Relations Window (not at a Resort), but it will cost about $10 extra per ticket as Sales Tax must be charged.

You mean the ticket windows at the park entrance....or do we have to go to TTC. We are staying at AKL.

Any park ticket window (TTC for the Magic Kingdom), or Guest Relations at DTD. I don't believe you can buy them at the resorts.

I have an upgrade question. DH and I are going in Feb. We are using the salute 4 day passes and are staying for 5 nights. We are also FL Residents. This will be the only trip for 2013.

We check in on Sunday and out on Friday. Can we arrive and go to MK for EMH on Sunday night using our salute passes and then upgrade on Monday to the weekday select?

I am only trying to add one more park day to our trip and this looks like it is the least expensive option for us. Is it possible to do?

No, you can't add a day to them, but I believe you can exchange them towards the purchase of a more expensive ticket.

I know we can't just add Sunday! Thats why I was asking, if we timed it right, if we could upgrade it to the more expensive Weekday Select annual pass!

The question is, can we upgrade them AFTER we have already used a day or 2 off of them or do we need to upgrade them before we use them!

EDIT: SOG have the Armed Forces Salute 20012/13 tickets now.

I too read that they were available Aug. 17.

I just got back from Patrick AFB ticket office and they don't have the new ones either. I was told they should have them first week of Oct. I was hoping to get them now because we will be at WDW tomorrow (using up the last one) and want them for our Oct.3/4 trip. Waiting to hear from SOG to see if they have them.

As I stated in Post #1 of this thread, the only way Salute tickets can have days added is to upgrade to any level of AP the person is eligible for. For Weekday Select or Seasonal proof of Florida Residency is required. And there is no price-bridging to MYW equyal; you only get the gate value (plus tax) toward the cost of the AP.

Some of the pointws are not yet clear. For example, the Press Release says all must be activated at the same time, and it con only be done once during the promotion. The internal information implies that activation can only be done once. There are still other points which require clarification.
I have been hearing conflicting reports. Do all 6 people need to be there at ticket activation or just my husband who is the service member??

What I don't understand is why do the ITT not have the tickets if WDW page states they are available for sale 17 August? That makes no sense. Our ITT doesn't have them, or know when they will get them. It is making me very nervous to get them before our October trip. To make them work they way they are supposed to, they need to have them available by 17 September since it takes 2 weeks for them to arrive and the new tickets start 1 October.
