"Theme park tickets" Kissimmee Warnings Or Dangers Tip by bip_231

Kissimmee Warnings and Dangers: 8 reviews and 2 photos

We bought our theme park tickets (about 3 weeks before we were due to go) in the UK, from what we thought was a reputable company (http://www.park-tickets.com/), however, we were wrong. We bought them from a company based in Chester, UK, from their website, which said that you bought them from them, and collected them from their 'collections' office in Orlando. We had a few problems after buying the tickets, but despite several attempts, we couldn't get through on the telephone to talk to anyone. However, as the date for us going on holiday approached, all we could do was hope that when we got to the office in Orlando, that our tickets would be there, and there would be no problems.

My husband went into the office to collect the tickets, only to be informed that the 'offers' that we'd bought the tickets under had expired months ago. When my husband told the guy in the office where we bought the tickets from, he shook his head, and said that that company, and in particular one member of staff, was "bad news". It was only due to the generosity of the guys in the 'collection' office (which was actually a fully fledged ticket office, i.e they sold tickets there too) that we were given the Disney tickets for which we'd paid. Unfortunetly, he was unable to give us the buy one get one free for the universal tickets, as that had ended over 3 months ago.

My tip is to not bother buying your tickets in the UK. I'd highly recommend the ticket office that we collected ours from, they sold all sorts of tickets, including the dinner shows, trips to Miami etc. They really seemed to know their stuff too, and their ticket prices were substantially cheaper than those offered to us by our resort representative, and only about $5-10 more than what we'd paid here in the UK.
