    Link Removed by Moderator


    I found this website for cheap disneyland tickets on craigslist. I am trying to go as cheap as possible, but is this too good to be true?
    If anyone knows about this please let me know!!!
    Thanks

    Look at this quote from their website:

    "
    Tickets will be handed out in the morning across the road from Disneyland and then will be retrieved later on that night around 7-8pm inside Disneyland so that you can stay in the park as long as you would like after rented tickets have been collected."

    Seems very strange. I mean, you have to give back your tickets?

      that does seem strange, and wasn't there a whole scam thing with craigslist selling AP's and stuff that were fake?

        Sure sounds like a scam, since all DLR tickets are non-transferrable. I would sure try to check it out further if at all possible. There was a recent thread here that had details about checking out tickets sold on craigslist. No knock on craigslist, since they provide great services when it comes to selling appropriate items, but I personally would not touch theme park tickets.

            Yup I would not trust this website! Just reading what they do made me sick! I hate when people do this! It's wrong and illeagal! Tickets are NON transferable! And you can't "rent" out tickets thats just wrong! I'm surprised this website hasn't been shut down! It's even worse when they say "We've been doing this for two years!" like that actually means something!

              These people may be legit, but I seriously would not trust it. Even if they are 'loaning' their tix out for cheap prices, by doing so they are being dishonest. Tickets are non-transferable as the person above stated.

              Another option that is easier on the pocket book would be to go through Disney Travel Company. I was able to book everything (hotel,park hoppers, even food) through them and they have the option of paying in small increments. So you can plan a HUGE vacation and just sit back and send a hundred bucks here and there. The only thing with that is that it has to be paid off one month before you are to arrive. It's been a real relief for us to not have to worry about coming up with a huge chunk of money at one time.

                If you feel uncomfortable with any website....don't use it!

                  This guy (or this could be someone like him) is being investigated by Disney as he buys 6 day tickets and sells them a day or two at a time. I would not go though him.

                    How can this possibly be legal? I don't know. I completely understand the desire to get into the park as cheap as possible, but I would be worried about Disney asking you to provide proof of purchase (as in a receipt or credit card to compare the purchase cc to) on admission. Since the tickets are supposed to be non-transferrable, that may put the buyer in a precarious position legally.

                    This reminds me of those people who get the military discount tickets and then scalp them right outside the gates. We had a guy approach us one day and ask if we needed a ticket. I said "yes" and he said that for $40, we could walk in the park with him. I said "no" because I was afraid it was a scam, but I watched him walk in with some other woman and pocket the $40. That's just wrong.

                      Legally, a third party cannot be held liable to an agreement they never made. In this case, you never agreed to the non-transfer clause when you buy a ticket from another individual. This is no different than someone you know giving you an unused ticket, yet no one here has problems with that. You only care if someone is making a profit, because profit making is 'evil'. Give me a break.

                      Still, buyer beware. It is up to you to decide what is a good purchase and what isn't.

                      EDIT: I reviewed the site, and this does seem to be a legitimate service.

                      This is the way it works. They buy 4 or 5 day park hopper tickets, and then rent out the tickets per day. They stand as much to lose as you do by participating as you can choose not to meet up with them later in the evening, thus giving them a loss. If you consider this a breach of contract between Disney and the actual ticket buyer, then okay, but YOU cannot be held liable as you are a third party and did not agree to Disney's terms.

                      I should also tell you that Disney does not lose any money from this exchange.

                        This was my thought as well. Knowing you possess a 6 day park hopper (thought not knowing how many days have been used already), what is to stop you from simply not showing up at the end of the night and pocketing the ticket? Nowhere on the site did I see anything about putting down a deposit for the value of the ticket.

                          Moderator Note:

                          Folks, this subject comes up from time to time, and the bottom line is that this scheme violates Disney's terms of use for the tickets. As such, it is a topic we will not be exploring on MiceChat.

                          Thanks for your understanding.
