This is what we are doing too!!

But can you buy the Heros Salute tickets at Magic Kingdom? Or is it better to go to SoG? I need the lease amount of complications lol

The rules are the salute tickets are one ticket per person. I have heard of people doing this though getting two per person.

It takes about 20 minutes to get the tickets so I would just get all your tickets at once. We were able to get 2 for DH, 2 for me and 1 for DD.

Also, you pay no taxes at SOG, but it is only a voucher. You still have to turn that voucher in at a ticket window at the park. So you have two steps to go through if you go to SOG. It was easier for us just to go to the park. tax came to about $30 for all 5 tickets. So decide what is more important to you, time or money.

Date to purchase extended

My mom just bought me a Salute pass last week at SOG. We were informed that they have extended the purchase by date to 8/31/10.

There is nothing in the internal Disney web site that indicates this. However, I have seen such an indication on the SoG site.

Unless Disney officially announces a change, we will be unable to sell Military Salute Tickets at the ticket windows after July 31. If the SoG posting is correct, then you might have to go to SoG to make the purchase.

There is no restriction that they must be activated by July 31, so as long as you have the tickets in hand we can activate them any time to the end of September.

Just wanted to say, if you can buy the tickets at an MWR office (base close to you!) you get vouchers and then just have to activate them. You save on tax!

OK I admit I have not read the entire thread. If we buy tickets on base where do we activate them and do we all need to be together when they are activated?

One last question Chesire (thank you so much for your info in the past). There was a debate about military spouse (and kids - husband not going) being able to purchase all 6 tickets or if limited to 5. You said you where going to send an E mail to powers that be. Any update?

We just did this--I have a thread on it here somewhere. The ticket person did NOT want to do it, and specifically said we could not, but my DH had her call her supervisor, who okayed it. We had a few VERY tense moments, though. We used 2 4 day tickets, no hoppers, each, for 6 days. I hopped twice but had to be very careful to use a different ticket than I used during the day. I also had to plan not to use up one ticket completely and then start using the next one if I wanted to hop another day.

I don't think I've seen this mentioned yet but I was just over on the SOG site and saw that they extended the final purchasing date for these tickets from July 31st to August 31st.

That is excellent news for us because our trip is in August and our base does not sell the Salute tickets. We had planned to drive to a base a few hours away to get them but now we don't have to. Yipee! I thought I'd post this in case there are others in my situation.

Here's the link...

I really wish they'd extend the "use by" date too!! We already made reservations for F & W in Oct before they advertised they were doing the Military Salute again this year. I've been holding off buying tickets, just in case they extend it...

Military Spouse

My mom is a military spouse and she would have been able to purchase 6 Salute tickets at the SOG resort without my father present. We only purchased 4 and were told we would be able to come back at a later date and purchase up to two more prior to 8/31/10. The SOG agent advised they lifted the restriction that all 6 tickets must be purchased at the same time. My mom did have to be with me when I activated my Salute pass.

Oh Lord! Ok so can DH not just walk up alone and purchase 4 tickets? I am going to be so nervous now! We dont have disney tickets at our MWR would I have better luck going and getting the vouchers at SoG or going to the ticket window? I need NO confrontation lol I am gonna be on honeymoon and my nerves can not take it lol

Is there a written rule against this? I am wanting to do 4 passes all with hoppers and 2 passes with WP and More. Should I be ok? Help! Im panicking now!!!
