Hi. I'm really glad I found this site. I was looking through this thread, but its really long and I didn't see my question, so I apologize if this has already been brought up. We will be staying at SOG for the first time next month, as my DH is a veteran and they allow veterans in September with a copy of their DD214. I was wondering since we will be staying there, if we get park ticket discounts like what is posted on their website. When I made the reservations, the woman wasn't very clear on it and said to call back a month before and talk with the ticket people. We don't leave for a little over a month, so I don't want to call yet. Can anyone help? Thanks!

We are doing the same thing. It's very confusing. I have been told that we can buy them there and also get the salute ones but I have also been told that you cannot>

If anyone has any input on this please let us know!! I have 39 days left and getting very anxious!!!

In order to use the Salute tickets you HAVE to be active duty retired, reservists or National Guard.

However, Shades does sell discounted tickets for the parks..

Also single day tickets

No, you can use salute tickets if you're National Guard.

I called them yesterday and just got a return phone call.. They just faxed me the form. I am confused a little. Do you have to list the names of all the people you want tickets for?

Also, when you guys get your confirmation call back, post it here so in case I don't get mine (tee Hee)..
For all who are going in August,,,did you get 40% off or 30%? I got the 30% and asked for additional 10% off. .They said "no" it is only for new reservations. SO the reservationist said I could change my ressie to one night, cancel the rest of the days and then call back to book the additional days and get the 40% off,

However you will have to check out for that one night and check back in the next day. Just throwing it out there if the additional 10% is worth it for you. Hope this makes sense.

On side note: I almost did not make my trip. My DS got orders 3 days ago to get deployed and the date was Aug. 20th. We leave for wdw on Aug 19th.. I was beside myself...
The powers to be changed his orders yesterday. WHEW...Now we have to get out of Dodge before they change their minds

Another late Aug group

My Dad is sponsoring our family from Aug 22nd through 28th. I can't believe how close it's getting!
We should all meet up at the pool one afternoon for an ice cold Shades of Green!
