Right. 6 can be activated or purchased at one time but one must be used by the service member. Doesn't matter who else uses the other 5.

I did read the sticky..post #17, but, I don't think these were answered.

My dad is getting 6 of the salute tickets for our trip in Sept. There are 7 of us, but after he gets those 6, he can buy 1 child regular military ticket (4 day hopper) for $275, right? That is allowed?

Also, last time he bought these, he just did it at the gate. Now, that I'm going and am more of a planner, I'd like him to get them sooner and then activate them when we get down there. 2 questions about this. If we get in Sunday night, he can activiate them at the gate that night, so as not to mess with it at Epcot RD on Monday morning, right? Also, everyone says you can get them at local MWR/ITT...what is that? Is that like the closest miltary base?

Yes, he can buy the regular MYW child's ticket, I think the discount is just no tax. The only limit is on the actual Armed Forces Salute tickets.

Yes, but if you don't want to go to a park (you have to go to a ticket window or Guest Relations, not the gate), I would recommend he go to Guest Relations at Downtown Disney, it was much quicker there. We activated ours the night before so as not to have to stand in the line again at the park. Guest Relations at DTD is next to Team Mickey.

I don't know what post he is close to, but not all of them have an MWR/ITT (MWR is Morale, Welfare, Recreation, not sure what ITT is) office, we didn't until recently at Ft. Benning. It's called Ticket and Travel on some posts.

They can be purchased at the gate, but you save the tax, which for 6 people is a good bit of savings. You can also purchase them at Shades of Green for the same price as the MWR/ITT.

If it is the service member plus six dependents the six ticket limit does not apply. But all must be present at the time the tickets are activated.

It would be my dad, my mom, me and my husband and our 3 kids. My husband wouldn't be considered a "dependent", would he?

None of you would be considered dependents, except for your mom. Your dad can definitely buy the six 4 day tickets and then one of the "regular" military discounted tickets. I don't know if they sell those at the gate, though, or if you have to buy them at SoG or your local ITT. Cheshire would know that.

even if they did sell the regular military "stars and stripes" tickets at the main ticket windows you do NOT want to buy them there. Buying them at SOG saves you the tax.
But, I don't think they sell them anyway.

SoG is the ony place that sells the Stars and Stripes tickets that I have found. SoG and MWR sell regular MYW tickets without the tax, that seems to be the only discount on those.

Oh, yes, it is so much easier to go there if you aren't going to a park that night. We walked in and right to the counter and we were in and out in less than 10 minutes. Have ID ready for everyone and it will go much smoother.

this is NOT what the rules say...
"No Eligible Service Member or spouse may purchase, activate and/or use more than six (6) Disney 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets during any single week of the promotion. One (1) of the Disney 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets purchased on each occasion must be for use by the Eligible Service Member or spouse."
and that is NOT what happened to us in 2010, i understand the rules "changed" from 10 to 12 in the original memo given out when the promotion was extended however if you read the rules on disneys site no where does it say that the service member MUST be one of the 6

does anyone have hands on actual proof from recent times where they used 6 without the actual service member there and/or were declined to use 6 without the service member??

We bought our first two sets of the Stars and Stripes tickets at SOG, but I just bough another set at my local base ITT office. It used to be they did not keep them on hand, you had to order them a few weeks in advance, but now they just open the drawer and sell them after looking at the ID card.

Well, Cheshire Figment's post here says that without the service member only 5 can be purchased by the spouse http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...2&postcount=17

and here it says : http://bookwdw.reservations.disney.g...tary#important
what you quoted above says one must be used by the service member Or spouse.

So I'm not sure which is correct.

Well, we haven't had a place to buy them until recently, all we had was a amall travel agency on post and all they offered were the AFS tickets. I know the new office says they keep the AFS tickets, I know they sell the MYW, but not sure if they have to be ordered. I did ask about AP's and she said those would have to be ordered. I didn't ask about S&S tickets, because the AFS are a better value for us.

We are going to buy six, if the actual membr can't go I'll report back
At least we have a leg to stand on if given any trouble because disneys site clearly says member or spouse

In 2010 we did spouse without issue so idk
