I called about 10 days out and was told it would be emailed to me one week out. If you don't get it one week out, just call and ask them to send it. And, don't worry, your "days to Disney" will fly by. Well, all except the last two weeks! Sheesh ... time is now crawling.

Hopefully I'll see some of you there, checking in August 23rd! Anyone bought their tickets on base before they leave for SOG? We are thinking about getting our tickets at the MWR before heading down to FL to save some time and to just have the ticket situation out of the way before hand.

Just my two cents: I choose not to buy my tickets at our MWR because I am so afraid of losing them on the way. Paradnoid, I know. But I am using the preorder form this year so I won't have to wait in line at the ticket counter at Shades.

Preorder worked prefectly for us and they even suggested something to save us money. Using two 4 day salute tickets each, one after the other for 8 days. I didn't know I could do that. I sounds like cheating because if they are going to do that why not just offer longer stay specials.

Our base sold the Disneyland 3 day tickets below the advertised price. I don't know if they do that for WDW tickets too. I prefer to get them when we arrive too. Sooo afraid I'll forget them. I did forget my drivers license. I grabbed by work photo ID thankfully I had my military ID for the TSA.

I see you are only entitled to 6 sets of tickets. I realize this is extremely nice. Our party consists of 7 people and they are not all family members. Any chance they might sell it to us anyhow?

I also have a question about refillable mugs? I thought I seen somewhere that there is a refillable mug for beer.. Am I dreaming this?

nope. They'll only make the exception if you have 7 family member in your immediate family - soldier and 6 dependents. You can buy the discounted regular tickets for your other family though.

And the refillable - we might have joked about that. LOL.

When you pre-order tickets do you still have to go to the customer service when you get to the park? I'm worried about taking too long activating tickets that i won't make it in for rope drop!

You still do have to activate your tickets.. It has never taken us longer than 5 minutes.. (Just plan on arriving 10 minutes earlier than you would have.) The pre order is GREAT.. Your tickets are held for you when you check in.. Make sure you ask about them though because I walked away after checking in and remembered them and walked back and she got them for us.. When we walked to our room we noticed the ticket line was all the way to the Starbucks kiosk.. If you have been to Shades you can only imagine how many people were in that line. The pre order is a GREAT thing IMO..
