Unhappy

So I am just completely upset at this point. I am a dependent over the age of 18 and bought two of these tickets last week. I asked the woman there multiple times if she was sure that I could activate them and even showed her my ID. She told me as long as I was over 18 that it was fine with my military ID card...now that I have read through this thread I am completely upset.

So what I am asking at this point is if my mom who is retired from the navy could activate the tickets for us without having to buy one for herself or go in the parks? Is there any way that she could activate the ones that I have already bought?

I activated them last year at DTD. So yes.

Your mom can activate the tickets only at Disney, including Shades of Green or Downtown Disney. She can't activate them at home.

The Military Salute Tickets can only be activated at a Park (including water parks and TTC) Ticket Office or a Guest Relations Office (including DTD).

Although they can be purchased at SoG, they can not be activated there.

And the rules for activation are discussed in Post #1 of this thread.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I meant can my mom activate them at the parks for me but not have to have a ticket for herself?

Yes, she can. All she'll need is her military id.

Absolutely! So sorry you got the wrong info at the base--I don't think the people selling them have a clue how this really works--I had to educate ours on it!

Information Update

A notice came out on May 28 that the sale of the Armed Forces Salute Tickets will continue through August 31, although the expiration date of September 30 is unchanged.

DH will purchase our discounted tickets on base since we aren't traveling until September. Do we get the PH add on at WDW or at time of purchase on base? Is it still $25 extra per person for PH?

Thanks!

Upgrading one day Magic Your Way ticket to Armed Forces Salute

Sorry if someone saw my previous post but I just saw this thread.

My DSIL if finally safe and home from Iraq!!! She now wants to join us for part of our upcoming Mickey/Harry tour over the 4th of July weekend. Originally my family was going to hang out at the Typhoon Lagoon and Kennedy Space center that weekend and then hit WDW (2 days) and Universal (2 days) after the 4th. But she can purchase the Military Salute tickets for $99 for 4 days. My problem is the Military Salute tickets may not be used in MK on July 3rd or 4th.

May I purchase Magic Your Way one day tickets to MK for July 3rd and then upgrade those tickets to Military Salute (paying the difference $20) to use the remaining 3 days later that week? I assume if this is possible that I would not be able to take care of this at Guest Services in MK on the 4th (or would I). How would I upgrade to visit Epcot on the 5th?

Does anyone think they will extend the expiration date? We are going the first week of Oct. ... just missing the cut-off.
