Thanks Grumpy--We're going to call in the morning to make sure, but that is what I had hoped. We leave Sunday for our trip, so we wanted to know if we needed to plan an extra theme park day instead of a water park day. With this heat wave here in Florida now, we were really looking forward to the water park day!

Either or both of the Hopping and/or WPF&M option may be added to the Armed Forces Salute Tickets without the normal 14 days upgrade restriction applying. I had some people upgrade to add WPF&M today to Armed Forces Salute tickets even though all four of the major park days were used.

Thanks guys for the quick replies---you've eased our minds for sure, and we're really looking forward to that Typhoon Lagoon break. Good night!

LOL

I thot about printing out this page but then I thot I could show them and they could say we have no idea who this person is.....

you now how it is...theres always some kind of snag in every trip in the making, just makes you appreciate the MAGIC that much more when you walk through the gates!! Will definitely let you all know how it goes and thank you!!
Hey guys, I've seen in writing on shades of green site (shadesofgreen.org/4day) towards the bottom. I believe there was another site that said they expire the 30 Sept and must be activated no later than the 26th of September as well, which kinda makes sense since it is a 4 day ticket. Also the women at MWR said the same upon purchasing it here at Fort Bragg. I hate to see someone spend the money and not get them activated on time
I would call disney since DIsney activates them at there guest services windows and go by whatever they tell you. Have them double check with higher ups if they aren't 100%.

I know last year we had questions about left over days for another visit before the expiration and got conflicting reports as well. When we asked at our hotel guest services they had to call a certain individual within disney who was versed in those tickets to get us a positive answer.

You should check the website they referenced you to. It says, in the fine print, "Disney's 4-Day Military Promotional Tickets will not be valid unless and until activated (no later than September 26, 2010)."

I know -- frustrating, isn't it???

THANK YOU!! I didnt bother to look yet because (stupid me) felt they would have put it in writing in their email to me since I specifically asked about that! Almost like they are being deceptive!

Don't thank me yet -- my question would be whether or not they say you can't activate the 4-day tickets after the 26th only because by then they're actually 3-day tickets (or 2-day, or 1-day, depending on which day you activated them...).

Cheshire Figment believes you can. The website, and SoG, clearly disagree with his interpretation. Your email response from Disney sure didn't help clarify the confusion...

besides the 2 sites you mentioned there are 2 others(mousemisers and wdwinfo.com) that say you have to by the 26th also! UGH.....Im just ready to say forget it...I dont understand why they cant just answer my question in black and white.....I would hope they know we all understand if we buy 4 days and there are only 3 days left that we are out one day, but its still cheaper than buying a one day ticket.... thanks so much for helping out with this

A 1 day ticket is cheaper than the military ticket. The military ticket is cheaper than a 2 day ticket, though.

I have rechecked today and there is nothing in the Cast procedures section which states that the passes cannot be activated after September 26.
