Are you sure?

I was thinking about buying more days than needed when we go to Disney since the $ difference is only a few bucks, and then give them to someone what we do not use, are you sure that I cant do that???

Yes, sweetie, we are sure you can't do that legally. The entire reason Disney began the finger scanning process was to prevent fraudulant sale of tickets, but it also prevents the "giving away" of tickets too.

Once your tickets have your finger scans, they won't work for anyone else. How would you feel if someone gave you tickets that weren't any good, even if you got them for free? Now, imagine how you'd feel if someone SOLD you tickets that weren't any good.

Its a big no no,

People on here will tell you that will end up in prison for fraud,and i dont doubt it , but i can tell you that it still goes on.

We were staying near disney and i popped into a nearby garage/gas station and they also had a themepark ticket booth, Anyway, as soon as the guy heard my accent he struck up conversation and basically knew more about the English 14 day disney tickets than i did, and the upshot was he wanted to buy my remaining days off me to sell on

I went back a few days later and he immediatly came over and asked if i had given much thought to his offer, needless to say i didnt sell them but if he wanted them, then he must be able to "doctor them" for other peoples entry

And dont tell me that an organisation as big as disney cant get ripped off, because if i go to my local car boot sale, i can get ripped off X.box games and the offer of an X. box chipped, so if microsoft can get done then im afraid anyone can..

Obviously you never buy used anything from strangers,so if a "friend"sold me bad tix,I'd "feel" like paying them a visit.

You can't do legally plus the finger scan will preclude someone other than you using your ticket plus the tickets themselves say they are not transferable-so no,you can't do it. Get the longest possible Disney ticket and add the no expiration option and then you will have for next time when the prices will surely have gone up.

Disney are such a benevolent organisation why would anyone want to rip them off. It is remarkably cheap to enter their parks anyway. I was told it was a bargain because of all the people they had to pay and all the character outfits they had to make and upkeep of the magic castle and they use a lot of elecricity and fireworks.

Listen dirty

You buy a ticket for more days than you need with your own money. Please do NOT expect a refund for any unused part of the ticket - you are dealing with Disney. When in Rome pay up bucko and dont stiff the Disernay or they will send the lads round to take your fingers prints ... off

Dirty, sorry you got stomped on! And I understand your original thought, but as some said, it won't work :-(.

Have a great holiday anyway, I am sure you are counting down the hours! You might look into getting the no expiry date suggestion another poster recommended.

my old boyfriend and my two girls and I were going toward the front gate at MGM on tht little tram thingie. when it stopped we began walking toward the entrance.

a guy came up and said 'do you want discounted admission?" we said of course.

he handed us 4 tickets and we paid him the fee (i think we saved 15 bux each) and we took the tickets and went inside MGM.

after 10 or so minutes the guy's son walked in, with hiw own ticket and found us and took the tickets back. we were in, we just couldn't leave. at the time, it happened so fast, i didn't realize that we made a serious mistake until i found out that tickets were non-transferrable. (i am pretty sure he bought extra days and 'sold' them to us while his group were off doing universal or something.)

at the end of the evening, i realized i lost my rental car keys so we had to have guest services find the 'key' man who drives around making replacement keys for boneheads like myself.... it was a FREE service for park patrons. did i ever feel like a total jerk?

of course now that sort of thing won't happen with the fingerprint scanning.
