Nervous about an Authorized Ticket Reseller

 94  2  2  123  25


“I have really enjoyed your site over the years. We are going to Disney World in June. I have never used a reseller and I am a bit nervous to do so. Will I be able to use it in the same way as if I bought tickets for Disney itself (i.e. Magic Band, Fast Pass, etc)? I would save about $300 for 6 people x 7 days with the Park Hopper Plus, but I wouldn’t want to jeopardize my vacation over the savings.

Nothing to Worry About


Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it.

The Authorized Ticket Reseller tickets are just the same as the tickets Disney sells. You will be able to make FastPass reservations, to upgrade your tickets, to use MagicBands, anything you can do with a regular ticket, you can do with a ticket sold by an Authorized Ticket Reseller. They are the same.

But you do want to be sure to use an Authorized dealer. There are lots of ticket scams out there, but the Authorized Resellers have Disney’s approval and sell authentic tickets.

We Recommend

I recommend The Official Ticket Center for Authorized Disney Tickets. They were the first reseller and have been around for over 15 years. They are located about a mile from Walt Disney World and have ticket agents right there in their Orlando office.

They will deliver tickets right to your hotel.

Dad’s Bottom Line

John, the tickets offered by Authorized Ticket Resellers like The Official Ticket Center work just the same as those from Disney. Nothing to worry about.
