This is of course up to your max of 6 allowable tickets during the offer, also note there are Blockout Dates when these tickets are not valid.
Disney’s New 2012-2013 Armed Forces Salute started just over a month ago on 1 October 2012.
Then on 1 October, once the Salute started, I discovered that there were even further inconsistencies in Disney’s implementation of the Military Salute Offer.
The major issue was the 7-day wait Disney was requiring between the use of Armed Forces Salute tickets by a single individual. This prevented the “back-to-back” use of these tickets. For example if a military member and spouse wanted to use four of their six allowed 4-day Salute tickets back-to-back for eight days of theme park fun, they couldn’t do it.
During previous Salutes, Disney’s official policy stated that a 7-day break was required but the Disney World ticketing department never implemented this rule. So many people did use their tickets back-to-back and were expecting to do so again.
The “no back-to-back policy” already caused issues during this new Salute Offer. I know of at least one MDT reader who recently went to Disney World for an 8-day vacation and ended having to purchase the more expensive 8-day Magic Your Way tickets instead of being allowed to use 2 Armed Forces Salute tickets for each of the three people in the party.
Kudos to Disney for fixing this issue!
Disney’s goal is to draw people to their theme park resorts, and preventing the use of these tickets in a way that works best for the individual would only keep people away.
