And yes you can activate the AFS tickets at all park ticket/guest services windows (TTC, other theme and water parks) plus DTD guest relations, and Disney Quest.
Thanks!! I really appreciate all the info on this board. We have used the tickets durring the last promotion, but it's nice to have reminders and clarification on all the little changes with the new promotion!

S&S Follow up question

I got some great feedback earlier on this thread, but the shadesofgreen response time is a bit slow on questions, so I was curious to see if anyone can provide clarification on a question. For S&S tickets, they have a 1 day rest built in? Is that correct? So if I arrive early afternoon I can purchase my 7 day tickets that day, take it easy that day, and use it the following 7 days in a row? Just curious so I don't have to rush with the family the next morning. We want to try to be in the park right at opening because we are early risers, plus it will probably be less busy.

Hi, Yes you are right. The stars and Stripes passes from SoG are valid for one day longer than the number of days on the pass, from the purchase date.

So if you buy a 4 day pass, it is valid for 5 days from the date of purchase.

I have looked thru the thread but didn't see the answer to this question. My DH is retired military, so if we have already used our allotment of MS tickets for this year are we allowed to purchase the discounted MYW tickets sold at SOG for other non military family members? (This would be our adult children and their families)

Yes, you can buy regular MYW tickets with no problem. Ask at your local ITT/MWR - if they don't stock them, they should be able to order them for you and may have a better price and be more convenient than SOG.

Can someone tell me if this will work or if this is the best deal? We will be traveling to Disney under the spring discount staying at POR. It will be myself my DH, my 2 DS 4&9, and my mother. We want to get the dining plan and more than 4 days in the parks. We were going to get a one day base ticket and add the dining plan to change our RO into a package then get the Military tickets. My father wont be going so we cant get the room and dining and tickets all in one. Will this work??? Or is the best way to save money?

Who is the service member? If it is your father, he must present himself with his military ID at a Park ticket window to activate the Armed Forces Salute tickets.

My father is the service member. My mother is the spouse. I thought the spouse can buy 6 tickets also? She was able to do it in 2011 at the gate at the magic kingdom. Has it changed?

Hi, no it hasn't changed. Your mom as a military spouse is entitled to 6 Armed Forces Salute tickets (one of which must be for her).

You said you were using the spring discount (not sure how much that is as I don't follow general public discounts) did you look into the Armed Forces Salute discount? 35% off at POR.

Can my mother get that even though shes the spouse? That would be amazing if that was the deal! Im getting 25% off now but an additional 10% would be awesome! Every dollar counts!!

Yes, she sure can! Spouses are eligible for the Armed Forces Salute room discounts at both WDW and DL (not the cruise line though).

And also wanted to add, if you are using the military discount, you do not need to add the one day base ticket in order to add the dining plan to make it a package.
