I am planning our military family reunion for June '14. We already have our rooms, DDP, and air booked for 12 days. We initially tried to get 10 day, w/hopper and water park features and were told our base could not order them. Called SOG and they said to get the Salute 10 day ticket as it was considerably less money and included everything. Great, except we can only get them when we arrive. From what I am hearing, we won't be able to get any fast pass+ times since we wont have our tickets to link and will be about 60 days behind everyone else making fast pass times. Help anybody? Do I have this right?
There is a 10 day ticket that is offered at a military discount although it's not the Salute ticket. But you are right about having to wait until you get your tickets to make your fast pass+ choices. I know someone who bought their tickets once they got to SOG and were able to make their fast pass+ choices without trouble. Not sure how things will be in June but hope it goes well for you.

Help with Stars and Stripes tickets

So sorry, I meant to say the other Military tickets, Stars and Stripes that are available from 2 to 10 days, include the hopper and water parks and more, and expire one day after the days purchased. They are a real bargain! However, the issue of the Magic Bands and Fast Pass+ is still the issue as far as I see. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you, thats it! I did pose the question to Steve at Military Disney Tip's, and he did confirm they are aware of this and will hopefully address the issue. That alone helps! Once everyone has 60 days to make Fast Pass+, I think it will be like trying to make ADR's on the day of arrival. Finger's crossed it gets resolved for all the Military tickets offered.

I had to call today about a different issue, but asked the CM while I had her on the phone if she knew anything about this. She said from speaking to other military people they were able to keep their original fp+ times and that when we get the new real tickets they will be linked as well. We'll see 10 days and I'll let ya'll know!

You'll see a large sample ticket and other small sample tickets under it. Make sure you select the sample with 17-20 digits. Enter the number on the very bottom left corner of your paper ticket where it says "ID or ticket order number" and click next. It will then ask you to assign this ticket to a guest in your party. Make sure you write down which paper ticket # you assign to each magic band. You can also link your resort reservation in the same way. Hope this helps!
Thank you. I had been told I could not link the vouchers, but it worked well.

Stars and Stripes tickets

Thanks both of you and have a great trip! I am hearing good things about linking the Salute vouchers and being able to keep the fast plus+ times. I hope they figure a similar way to allow the Stars and Stripe tickets to utilize the system in advance like the rest as well. Have fun!

FastPass+

Has anyone been to DW after they have linked the Military Voucher and was able to keep FastPass+? Does it work? Just worried about getting the voucher and then losing the FastPass+ time after turning the voucher into the actually ticket.

So you had the vouchers first, link them to the magic band and then got the actually ticket?

We had used tickets that only had water park days left, made fast pass selections, arrived at Disney and upgraded to annual passes... Got to keep all our selections!

Just wanted to report on our experience!

We purchased our vouchers from our base rec. center and linked them through MDE and made fp+ selections before we left.

We arrived Sun. afternoon and changed plans and decided we wanted to do Disney Quest that evening. The concierge recommended us taking our vouchers to the guest relation in DTD right next to Disney Quest. The CM took our vouchers (I had written our names on the back of each so she knew which # was linked to which band), she asked for DH's military id, and had me write each of our names and birthdays down and she entered those in. She issued us each a card ticket and we were on our way in like 5 minutes! She said all of our fp+ selections would be linked. We walked right in to DQ with no problem, all of our fp+ selections have worked at DHS adn Epcot, and using the ddp with the mb's have been super easy!

If anyone has any questions feel free to email me as I have my phone and I'll check that. Hope this helps!

So the FP+ selections are on your MB and you didn't have to do anything special to get them there?

Nope, nothing special or extra steps. The selections I made using the green paper vouchers before we left automatically linked to the mb's and when the CM changed them over to the new card #'s with the "real" tickets they were all set. No problems with any fp+ selections the whole trip!
