So if the service member or spouse comes to a ticket window at a later time we can see if the maximum allowable number of tickets has been sold.
Oh OK! Thanks!
I was a little worried that my husband would buy some now, and then when he went back they were be a problem.

According to the lady in the Fort Meade ITT office (and she seems to know her stuff!), yes, you can buy some in May and the rest in the summer.

It is easiest to just buy all four at once. And it is easy to tell which is which if you buy them at a WDW ticket window as it will be printed on the ticket what the entitlements are. If you buy them at a MWR/ITT or SoG you are unable to tell, by looking at the ticket, what is on it.

Can you use your room key and have tickets charged to your room? I think I asked on the resort board, but nobody seemed to know for sure.
It's not a big deal, just my husband likes leaving the real money in the safe, and if he doesn't have to bring his wallet on that first day he doesn't want to.

I don't think there is any way to know if it will be extended.
One way to get more day's with the military tickets is by using two per person, then you get essentially 8 day tickets for about $200. Of course if you have more than three people in your party, you would have to buy regular tickets for the others in your group.

A lot will depend on which resort you are staying at and how many tickets you are purchasing. We routinely do hotel room charges at the ticket booths. However, if you are at a value resort the normal charging limit is $500 so you have to make sure that you have enough credit available on the room charge.

Does anyone know what the current price is for the discounted 10 day park hopper with no expiration ticket that you can get on base? It has been a few years since we bought ours, and will need to purchase for two of our children for an upcoming trip. I wondered if the military price is better or if it is less to go with undercover tourist. The price for a child 10 day park hopper with no exp. through undercover tourist is $468 including tax.

I don't know about base MRW/ITT offices, but the Shades of Green price list gives their current prices and there is no tax added on.

Does anyone know if the military resort discount can be used for Disney's Vero Beach or Hilton Head Island Resorts? Has anyone tried this? I thought I'd read some where that someone was able to apply this discount at Vero, but I just tried at HHI and was told that this discount was only for the Walt Disney World resorts. Thanks so much for any information I can get from the great dispeople!!!!

I called about 2 weeks ago to ask about Vero. We are staying there on points in July and I wanted to add cash nights and checked for that military discount and she said only the WDW parks. Can't hurt to call and check though. You might get a different answer.

I was told by people at SOG not to do this because if you buy them at the magic kingdom or any park window they are activated then and there (so 4 tickets, would run out in 4 days), whereas if oyu buy them at SOG you could activate them whenever

No, I got the same answer as you. I booked HHI today and was told that its only for the WDW resorts. I even called back a few hours later, spoke to a different CM who took the time to look into it for me and the answer was still no. I'm not sure if it was here or on another site I read that someone was allowed to use the discount at Vero. Maybe they were mistaken. Thanks for the reply, though!
