Looking for Liner opinions for disposing of a Park Ticket.
So, I have a WDW adult 3 day park hopper that is unused, but has been linked to my MDE account. Ticket was purchased after the 2017 price increase, so, it expires this year on 12/31/2018.
I was going to take DD25 to WDW with us last fall, but Hurricane Irma = Rescheduled Trip. DD25 can’t go on rescheduled trip.
The remaining family members all have tickets that will be fine and sufficient for re-scheduled trip. So, I am stuck with this expiring 3 day PH.
I see my options as follows:
- Keep the adult 3 day park hopper. Let it expire, and then try to use the credit for the ticket towards a future park ticket. I keep the full value, but in a form I can’t use until I go back to the park. And then I have to buy the ticket directly from Disney at guest services I suppose to do this swap.
- Transfer the ticket to a friend or relative who can use it before the end of this year. I recoup the cost of the ticket (or most of it if I am in a kind mood) in the form of cash.
Option 1 comes with no real downside - other than having to purchase from Disney directly at Guest Services. Am I missing anything?
Option 2: If I transfer the ticket, I have to be linked to that person on MDE. However, what happens after that? If I transfer the ticket to my sister - can I then “unlink” from her (so she can’t accidentally screw up my ADRs and FPP)? Can she then transfer the ticket further to my nephews? (I have the physical ticket which I can also provide to her).
Any other options? I would prefer not to waste a ticket and eat that cost. I would also prefer, I think, a way to liquidate the ticket without having to hold onto a very expensive Disney voucher.
Thoughts? Other options? Other potential pitfalls I haven’t seen?
