Four people busted for selling half-used theme park tickets to Orlando area parks

Posted Monday, August 17, 2009 1:12 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Ticket booths on West U.S. Highway 192 were targeted after tourists who bought unused portions of multi-day passes to Disney and Universal were denied admission to the theme parks, according to a sheriff's report. Multi-day passes are not transferable and are illegal to use by anyone other than the original purchaser.

This is why you should never purchase amusement park tickets anywhere other than through the parks or a reputable retailer (AAA, grocery stores partnered with the parks, etc).

That's awesome. I heard one of these scam artists about a month ago. They had to have a translator to sell them to the people buying them. I really don't think the people that bought them understood why they had to go to seperate gates and tell the park these tickets did not work before. I don't know the language they were speaking, but it just seemed aweful. These sellers will set up shop near reputable stores to. Makes them look more credible I guess. I wonder which shops got nailed. I would like to smile bigger if it was the one I heard. I was leaving Orlando that day, and going to call the parks when I got home, but untill I read this article I forgot. I wish I would have been invovled. I guess I should have wrote myself a note.

edited for this. I saw you mentioned AAA to purchase tickets from. I have had success in the past. But I know I heard Sea World Management saying AAA doesn't always follow ALL the rules and their tickets can be a hassle.
