Is this Sept 2014? I hope so! We are planning a trip then with the grands.

Question about FP+ and salute tix

So do the Salute tix do FP+? I still totally don't understand how this works.

I am waiting for info on this myself. Someone on another board has reported that they were able to link their Military Salute Tickets, but I don't know if they are staying at Shades or a Disney hotel that is in the FP+ trial test program.

No one seems to know. Our problem is, we buy our tickets through SOG. We'll be preordering, but won't get them til we check in. We're going in Nov, so it shouldn't be an issue as regular FP is still operating, but for the future it sure would be nice to know.

Well, we arrive tomorrow. Got vouchers from the Pentagon for the salute tix and plan to go to TTC to activate. I'll post an update after the fact. Should be interesting.

A much larger test of FF+ began on Aug 2 that included four of the Disney Resorts’ guests; and still only selected guests…not everyone. They have a massive amount of cast members assigned at those resorts to help with all the new procedures. Everyone knows that every time there is a computer change/update there are always issues/bugs to fix; and this is a whole new system to debug.

The FF+ is attached to the ticket NOT the resort reservations. You do not have to stay at a Disney Resort to use FF+

HOWEVER since it would mean total mayhem in the testing stages to try to do it at the parks…they are using only Disney Resort guests at this time. So SOG guests will have to wait until the full rollout to take advantage of FF+. The old FF system will still be available until then.

It still remains a problem that Military tickets (including Military Salute tickets) must be picked up or activated in person at the parks/TTC before they can choose FF+ offerings. You have to wait to link to FF+ until you actually have a ticket in hand…not the voucher you get from the base or SOG. They check your Military ID first.

Since the norm will be somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 days in advance of arrival for all other tickets, it leaves Military ticket holders at a disadvantage no matter how early we book our vacations. Disney has yet to work out a solution. We can only hope that they will have a work around in place by the time FF+ goes live. Disney still is not saying exactly when that will be. They are saying the end of this year or the beginning of next year. It all depends on how quickly they can identify and fix problems.

We are going in early December, so are keeping our fingers crossed.

^^ Does this new FP+ system mean the regular fast pass system won't be available anymore? That we will all be forced to either use this new computer generated FP+ system or just be SOL? Doesn't seem fair to me. Just too much forced technology these days.

Everything I've read says that regular FP will be going away. I don't like it either. Those of us with military tickets will end up with whatever is left over when we can finally schedule FP+.

Steve at Military Disney Tips has asked Disney about this and was told they are working on it. No clue as to when they will come up with a solution.

I can't find that rate anywhere online. I'm looking at the end of January - when I try to pull up the military appreciation dates, it shows me last may.. uggh.

And I know this is like asking my dealer not to sell me crack, but I'm trying hard not to book something. I just realized I have enough miles for 2 tickets, plus, I have a $99 companion ticket. Regular room is 123 a night. Park tickets are 169. Though, we'd only be going with our 13 year old, not our older child, so maybe I could take advantage of staying in a regular disney room for a change with the military discount...

Someone needs to talk me off this ledge. lol

Call them! The military appreciation rate disappears and reappears on their website daily.
