(Seriously -- Thanks to Cheshire Figment for all the WDW ticketing info provided over the years!!!)


but can he or anyone give me something in writing to say I can activate my tickets...this is all I have been asking is that someone please give me proof of some kind I can do it.......if I wasnt on these boards I would have gone by what SOG says via Disney......so when I come on here and get different info how do I know what to believe??? Last yr I was told on here I couldnt get a refund for the MVMCP tickets I had purchased before the discount came out.....so I went and emailed Disney and got a different answer, a code to give to the window and got a refund for the difference I pd. All Im asking for is proof so when I get to the window to activate them I wont be turned away and stuck with tix I cant use.....I dont think that is asking a lot

if you go to the tab at the top of disboards and click on WDW.info and then go to military discounts and tickets it says the same thing that I was told by SOG...isnt that site part of this site? Same with Mousemisers....they say the same info....Disboards is so far the only one saying something different....

see this is my dilema we are arriving the 27th! LOL Thats why I so want some kind of proof that what I read on here is the correct info before I go and buy the tickets and then Im turned away saying sorry the 26th was the last day......

I have a feeling activation on the 27th is probably just being done strictly as a courtesy for those that misunderstood (or missed) the deadline on the 26th and that's why there's nothing in writing about it. You really only have two choices -- activate the tickets by the 26th to give yourself some piece of mind, or take your chances with the 27th. Best of luck with whatever you decide.

unfortuantely (but understandably) we have to activate them in person to show military ID and since we are arriving the 27th I wont be able to do that ahead of time....I just got excited when I was told on here that what I was reading was incorrect then got upset when I was told the info on here was incorrect....UGH In need of a bath of Pixie Dust......

It makes no sense that ticket activation must be by the 26th. The offer ends on the 30th, so the 26th is five days out on 4-day tickets. That is just gibberish that I would call a typo. Lots of heart-wrenching misinformation is out there. You can read through this entire thread and find people who were given wrong info from Shades of Green. I have been given wrong information. The best thing I learned about wrong Disney information is to keep asking someone else if the answer you get is negative or nonsensical when it shouldn't be.

But one thing I would bet on is Cheshire Figment. He has the official Disney info. He has not led anyone into a financial loss situation. If he says his Disney internal info has no requirement to activate the tickets by Sept. 26th, I would take that for Gospel. I would also print out that page of the thread and bring it with you when you arrive on the 27th, "just in case."

I think everything will be alright. Let us know back!

Sorry -- I realized after I had posted that you weren't arriving until the 27th. What would "Plan B" involve...buying other tickets? Is it something you'd have to do before you leave, or would you buy them from SOG once you arrive? If so, would your finances allow you to buy the other tickets and save them for a future trip if the $99 tickets are still available on the 27th?

(You're probably just like me and have been unable to fall asleep every night going over every possible scenario in your head.)

if we cant get the $99 then we will just purchase tixs from SOG when we get there but of course at a much higher price...see stupid me didnt think when I booked our flight with SW...the prices had gone down so much we are only paying $179 rt/person and I was so excited and knew I had to jump on them quick before they went up, which they did 2 days later almost dble the price....so after i booked them it dawned on me the tickets couldnt be activated the day we arrived that i missed it by one day.....im kicking myself for being so excited about the airfare that i didnt think about anything else at that moment....

Just send a quick email to guest services and ask them directly. This is what i did when I had a question about activating all 6 tickets while my DH is deployed. They will answer within a few days and then you will know for sure and not have to worry anymore. I printed guest service's response just in case I needed it. Don't put yourself through the worry when you can go directly to the source.

I have 4 of the Armed Forces Salute tickets in hand that we purchased at our base ITT office and it doesn't say anything on the back about when it has to be activated. It says "Military personnel or their spouse must be present at time of purchase and activation. Valid Jan. 3 through Sept. 30 excluding the following black-out dates: March 27- April 9, 2010 (All parks) and July 3-4, 2010 (Magic Kingdom Only).
I hope this helps with your dilemma!

And I see on the SoG site where it talks about a one-time purchase; this is not accurate, so where there is one error, why not another.
Here is a link to a Disney source that says must activate by 9/26

However, they do not have the buy by Aug 31 update (it still says buy by July 31).

So, this Disney source has at least one error.

Is it possible the terms were originally "activate by 26th" but that changed also? But it was never announced anywhere in writing, except the internal system?

I would email guest relations. If they write back saying can activate on 27th, then just print that email and bring it, and with that in hand, I'm sure they would override the 26th restirciton, if there is one.

If guest relations sticks with the 26th: then you have a choice. You can just pay for the regular tickets, or take the risk of buying the $100 tickets and hope that they let you activate them anyway (which they might, just to provide good customer service, even if they aren't technically supposed to)

Personally, I would get the salute tickets and trust in the Disney magic

Thank you for the link. And the link does, as you stated, show that tickets must be purchased by July 31 although Disney announced, in May, that tickets may be purchased through August 31.

And I have now looked at two internal pages directed at ticketing personnel and neither tells us that we cannot activatge the tickets after September 26.

thank you and yes the first date was July 31st but Disney extended it to Aug 14th and unfortuantely the one link I read never updated that....
