At Get Away Today we have made a business of saving families the most money possible on their Disneyland Resort vacations. One of the ways we do that is by offering the lowest ticket prices around, but as we reported on our blog a few weeks ago, unfortunately there are those out there that will try to bend the rules and be dishonest (whether intentionally or not) to save a few bucks. (Read the full article about Disney Cracking Down on Ticket Fraud by clicking here.)
When a Disneyland Resort ticket is sold, it is intended to be used by the purchaser and the purchaser's immediate group. Tickets are also to be used by the same guest during the entire length of stay on the tickets, which is printed directly onto all Disney tickets. If it is discovered that Disney has begun some extra measures to stop the ticket rental fraud which has disrupted so many families' vacations recently. If Disney discovers that a family's tickets are not being used by the same person, they will revoke the tickets and the family will have to repurchase their tickets from an authorized Disney ticket seller. The Disneyland Resort is doing its best to encourage families to ensure that they are purchasing their tickets from an authorized Disney ticket seller from the very beginning.
Most recently, the Disneyland Resort has designated special gates for all guests with 4 and 5 day tickets. In a statement prepared for our friends over at MousePlanet, Suzi Brown, spokeswoman for the Disneyland Resort said, "In an effort to mitigate 'ticket renting,' we are requiring the guest's name on all 4- and 5- day tickets, and will be checking IDs. Tickets that are purchased at the Resort will have the guest's name printed on them; tickets purchased at other authorized sellers will require that the guest name be added at the gate with indelible ink."

According to Brown, the Disneyland Resort doesn't anticipate that the new policy will have a big impact on guests to the resort and that they are also looking at additional options for addressing this problem.
