The 14 day rule does not apply to the military 138 ticket. For the present promotion that runs until Sept 30th 2011, that is the end of usage.

So............you could use a couple of days in May and then return in August to use up your last 2 days.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick response. We are going to be in Orlando for 14 days in June and we didn't want to have to go to Disney 4 days in a row. We tried that before and the kids were exhausted by day 3. This then allows us to pace ourselves and go when they want to go and do something else on the days they want to sleep in.
Wonderful. Thanks again.

Well, that's just blasphemy.

ticket question

I am leaving in 2 weeks for a girls trip and one of the girls purchased our park tickets with her military discount. She told us today that she has some family medical issues come up and may not be able to go. Will we still be able to use these tickets if she isn't there? She is the only one with a military id.

Unfortunately the answer is no. The person with the military ID has to activate the tickets at a guest service window at the parks.

did she buy the Salute to Heroes special? $138 for a 4 day base ticket( park hopping and water parks extra)

if that is the case then they will be useless unless she is there in person to activate them with her Military ID.

if she bough the vouchers for a MYW ticket through ITT or MWR, these are just like any other MYW ticket and can be used with no issue.

What if the military person has an Annual Pass?

My husband (military person) and I both have annual passes. If I read it correctly, with this offer the military person is required to purchase a ticket for him/herself also. Is this true? In our case, an extra ticket for him will not do us any good because our annual passes are good until mid Oct.

We are going to purchase tickets for our daughter and granddaughter in a couple weeks and thought we'd use the promotion, but it doesn't make sense to pay an extra 138 for a ticket that isn't needed. Looks like we may use an old non-expiring ticket we had for our granddaughter and just purchase a park hopper for our daughter.

no. any SM may buy up to 6 tickets total. a SPOUSE can only buy 5.

but the SM is not required to purchase one for his exclusive use. if he wants to buy 3 and give them to his grandkids that's fine as long as he is the one that activates them at the gate.

my father is buying 4 military tickets for our trip end of this month.

however, we are only going to use two days worth.

would we be able to use the other two days at a later time during the summer (july) but without him being there?

he will only be with us during this quick weekend trip.

Well, I ( spouse ) had planned on buying 6 in October. 3 for my girls trip to F&W. 3 for a December trip with my DH and DD. If they won't let me buy all 6 I hope they'll let DH buy the one more needed when we arrive in December. Sometimes the rules are just a PIA.

Yes. It will be allowed.

The reasoning behind this rule is that it is for the service member and family/guests; not for the family alone. That is why it works this way.

Any word on when Disney will release the details/blackout dates for the military promotion for Oct 2011 - 2012? The website still just says to check back soon. We are debating going back after Thanksgiving to see the Christmas decorations and would love to know if we can use the military discounts for those dates. I am having a hard time being patient!

If you go to the locked sticky Everything About WDW Tickets in this Forum, especially Post #17, you can get a lot more information. An easy way to get to the sticky is by clicking on the link in my signature. The blockout dates are posted there.

Thanks so much Chesire Figment! The CM I spoke with yesterday didn't have any info on blackout dates. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
