quick question on upgrading the salute tix please

my sister is going to DW this weekend. They are going to buy their military salute ticket. To make a long story short, she broke both wrists and isn't sure she will be able to stand being in the parks all day. If they use one day of the salute ticket and decide to go home, can they still upgrade it to either a fla. res. pass or annual ?

Also, ex. does DW take the price of the annual pass and subtract $99.00 and you pay the difference? Is that how the upgrade is done?

Thanks

Yes, she should be able to upgrade it.

Wish I had actually paid attention to this and waited to buy my Seasonal Passes. Oops!! Oh well - I'll just be waiting to activate my passes until after Sep.

I don't know when she has to do the upgrade by, but she will get a $99 credit toward an AP.

According to the disney web page and multiple other sources, she should be able to upgrade to a annual pass. I would call disney to verify though.

23 days until we go to Saratoga Springs Resort

Quick Question for anybody able to answer!

We are 8 days away from our trip! woo hoo!

My family & I are vacationing with a really good friend of mine & his family. He is active duty military & bought all of our tickets. We're all going to go to get them activated when we get there, but beyone that, do we all need to tour together? We are sharing a condo off-site & plan on touring together for most of the time, but sometimes I'm sure we're each going to want our 'alone' time with our own families. Is this possible? (to not enter the gate with them every time)

I am pretty sure that the military deal is only for the military member and his actual family members, so I am not sure how he will get you all in using the passes if someone in your immediate family is not military? Although, I am not sure how strict Disney is on checking if people are actually family? I would hope they would be pretty diligent in checking though, as it is a perk for military members and their family....

Last time we went was in November 2009 and we had to show our IDs at the gate to activate our tickets but then I think we just did the thumbprint ID each time we entered the parks.

We are going next Saturday and plan to use the military tickets too! I am so excited!

Once they are activated you will not have to tour together. My DSIL and nephew used the extra 2 our family was entitled to and they came and went as they pleased...no questions asked.

Ahh, I did just read (going back through this whole post LOL) that it can be for friends or family! I was mistaken I guess

I called and confirmed today--I saved 30% (as opposed to 25%) on my room in November. I hope I got all the details correct. haven't found it in print yet, but the CM read through it all over the phone this morning.

Okay - I just called to confirm it. The room discounts are a go, but there isn't any info out on the tickets yet.

I talked to my ITT office, and three people at shades of green. There WILL be a deal on tickets, but they don't know when.

This really aggravates me for a few reasons. The room discount is already up and running, so why hold off on the tickets? They don't know when they will release that info. We already bought our tickets, but this deal will save us $400 dollars! Our ticket office is willing to refund us the tickets we bought so we can buy the new ones. If the offer is released before we go, and we leave on the 15th. Not knowing when the info will be a GO is really annoying, and if its released two days into our trip I'm going to be pissed!
