Having thought about it again, I guess my comment about fate ensuring nobody (excluding those eligible for a Number Nine ticket) can reach the gates in less than four years doesn't make much sense in the world of GF; otherwise, the DOD wouldn't be selling cars and such that make the journey shorter. And as we saw, there's nothing apparent to stop somebody simply walking through the gate if they make it there Chepito did, after all.

I think the four year number means very little at all really, and was instead just a wild guess of Manny's when describing the journey in his sales pitch. After all, Manny was certainly in the Land of the Dead for much longer than four years.
