this post seems to indicate that tickets must be used on the day they're activated
http://www.militarydisneytips.com/bl...Disney+Tips%29

"The first use of the AFS ticket must be on the same day as activation."

any comment on that Cheshire? We always activate the day we arrive at either TTC or DTD and then are free to head to the parks first thing in the morning without delay. I know many do this as well.

It also says no back to back use, but that's not a big surprise.

I am wondering about this, too. We always activate on arrival day at DTD and use the tickets for the first time on the following day.

You can buy up to 6 tickets, that's all allowed from this promotion.

Active Guard and Reserve are those that attend training one weekend a month and 2 weeks in the spring/summer, like my husband. We have an ID card, and Tricare RS and on post priviledges There is IRR, which is Inactive Ready Reserve, they don't have benefits or priviledges.

I'm wondering if they are doing that to prevent people from buying them, activating them, and then giving them to other people to use later?

Thank you. I guess the part where all 6 tickets had to be bought at once was confusing to me. '

Okay I was thinking Active Guard and Reserve were ones that had been put on active duty status. Thank you for explaining it.

It can in some situations, but not when it relates to the Salute tickets and room discounts, thank goodness.

1. The tickets do not have to be first used on the day of activation.

2. Disney just came out with an internal set of FAQs three pages long, clarifying many questions. I've had out of town guests staying with me this week, and I'm working both today and tomorrow. I expect to analyze them and will have a clarifying information post sometime this weekend. Stay tuned for more information. When I do it, I will do a new post to this thread, as well as edit both Post #1 of this thread and the ticket sticky.

i've heard conflicting information and i need help!

we already have a WL reservation for 9 days in february for 6 people (including my mil husband). I've been trying to figure out the best plan to save money .. whether it's to wait to see if free dining is offered (and not use mil discounts) or to get the 40% off the room with the mil discount (and just pay for dining). the big deciding factor, for me, is if we can use the 4-day mil park tickets for our whole stay.

everything i've read online says that with the mil tickets, you can purchase 1 4-day ticket per person per year, but when i talked to a CM on the phone, he said that you can buy that twice a year and just do it back-to-back, giving us 8 days each of tickets to use for our one vacation.

is this true or was he mistaken? i would hate to get down there and have them say we need so many days between uses ... or have them say we can only use the 1st 4-day tickets and not the 2nd.

i hope someone can clear this up.

I think we have to wait for Cheshire to come back with an explanation of the recent clarifications put out by Disney to their employees. Anything else is just pure conjecture. Hope it works out for you. But you won't be able to buy two sets of 6 tickets, unless they've drastically changed the rules. What you MIGHT be able to do--and we won't know until Cheshire tells us-- is use two tickets for 3 people back-to-back. That would use up your 6 tickets. CF said he'd have clarification by the weekend.
