Disneyland creates new policy to prevent renting ticketsby Leah Zanolla
Nov 11, 2012
Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are now requiring guests using four and five day park tickets to show their IDs. The change in policy is due to a recent onslaught of off-property ticket brokers renting multi-day passes for a discount.
The tickets are meant to be "nontransferable" for all included days, but the tickets and ID weren't always checked as people were using them. According to Suzi Brown, Disneyland Resort spokeswoman, "The rule is in response to recent publicity about the issue, as well as more-common, aggressive tactics by the outside businesses. For example, some employees hold signs advertising the discount tickets on streets near the theme parks."
As a way to combat these unauthorized sellers, passes at the Disneyland Resort are now printed with guests' names on them. There are reserved turnstiles for guests using the multi-day tickets. At Walt Disney World, park guests must scan their fingerprints when presenting a multi-day ticket.
Some of the ticket brokers are reacting to the new policy; two have shut down already, but another one posted on their Twitter account that they will still be selling tickets, despite the changes.
