Question Disney Salute to Heroes

Can anyone answer a few questions for me? I'm having trouble googling for the information.

Can we get this ticket at the main ticket booths?

How much to get the "companion tickets"?

Thanks so much for anyone that can help!

okay I found the answer to the companion tickets! I just need to know if we can buy the military ticket at the ticket booth!

also, does anyone know if we can "pre-buy" a blockout ticket? FOr instance, we are planning on going this Saturday, so instead of waiting in line in the morning, can we gotomorrow afternoon and buy our tickets so we already have them?

I believe you have to get them on base, the companion ticket came out to be 92.50 at mcas miramar for one. they give you a "ticket" that you then need to take to the DL ticket booth to exchange for your real ticket.

A CM explained it to me that you go to MWR at your local base and get the vouchers both for the Active Duty Mbr. and family members. You then take that voucher to the park the day you plan to go and "trade" it in so to speak.

Bummer about no MM. I had already asked but was hoping it might still be possible. What says it specifically the voucher from MWR or tickets from Disneyland?

You can still get MM IF you stay at one of the Resort Hotels (DL, PP or GC) and military can get 20 -40% off rooms depending on the dates.

That is from a Marines site. It is also available to spouses of dead service persons.

I tried the link above and it sent me to google for some reason. I heard that this cannot be used to upgrade annual passes.

I cannot believe how difficult they make it to get this offer.

I would suggest double checking on this. I thought the same thing, "oh but we are staying at the Disneyland Hotel, we can get in for MM." I called the hotel and the CM said unless my ticket says so then no I cannot experience MM. Bummer, huh?

The CM was wrong, ALL guests of DLR hotels qualify for MM. This is a perk you get when staying on-site.

Does anyone know what the ticket looks like once the voucher is turned in? Is is a regular swipe card, or a paper ticket? Also, can the vouchers be redeemed at the ticket booth, but then not used until the following week? My sister is going for two of her three days the week before we get there, so she will be turning in the vouchers for the friends/compannions ticket, but we wont be getting there until the next week. Will our tickets still be good?
TIA

I've not used the tickets yet (our trip isn't until May) but from what I understand the Active Duty Mbr. must be present w/ ID to use any tickets including companion tickets. From there they have to be used w/ in 13 days.
