WARNING do not buy an AP off craigslist or anywhere other than Disneyland. In an effort to get premium passes for my wife and two daughters I did and know I'm out my $1400 and have no passes. I just want to warn everyone so it doesn't happen to anyone else. I'll have to save up all over again but we'll be back eventually. Be careful guys.

Here's your sign. - SoloSiyoNqoba  600.4 #340 2:57PM
That's terrible. So sorry this happened to you! Anne - topdisneymom  240.1 #1475 3:00PM
Thx Anne. I should have just bought them from Disneyland. I hope they catch the person responsible. I'll save up and get AP's again because we had a great time in the few weeks we had them. - chrisjrTCB  55.8 #4552 3:17PM
Wow! Yeah craigslist is probably not the best place. Anyone can create a listing and there is no feedback system or fraud protection. eBay may be stretch as well for tickets but usually you can view the feedback to see if the seller is a good one. Sorry this happened to you. - DisneyMomma  260.3 #1254 3:18PM
.....We could have told you that. Many people who buy/sell video game consoles or iphones end up getting robbed at the meet. If you do make the same mistake again and try to buy something from Craigslist, see if they will meet you inside a police station lobby instead of the back end of a grocery parking lot. And keep cool, stay in school. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 3:21PM
Did you pay them before you got them? - MozPrincess  582.4 #348 3:21PM
People sell annual passes on Craigslist?? I knew about park hoppers, but not annual passes. - DaisyBell  695.5 #283 3:28PM
Sometimes lifes lessons suck big time, too bad that happened. :0( - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 3:28PM
So I did the math and 3 premium annual passes come out to $1377. Why would you pay someone else $1400 instead of going through the house of mouse. - HotDiggityDogDaddy  1113.5 #163 3:30PM
I'm sorry that happened to you. Some people just SUCK! Hope you can visit real soon. - DLlover  19.4 #7463 3:41PM

...were you buying it for yourself also? - MayBie  1885.6 #90 3:43PM
I got one for myself so 4 total. They went into the park with me and I only paid after the AP process was complete. I was able to use them for almost three weeks before I was contacted by Disney today with the bad news. I gave them some good info on the seller and they seem hopeful they'll catch them. They said they may be able to recover the money or help me get new passes. Another example of Disneys caring nature. I'll hope for the best. Thanks for the kind words those of u who posted them. Mahalo. - chrisjrTCB  55.8 #4552 7:49PM
File a police report? Call your credit cars company? Why on earth would you buy it off craigs list anyway? - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 8:00PM
What weasels! I hope everything turns out for you. - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 8:04PM
Yeah you never buy passes for eBay or anything like that. Sorry that happened to you. - nanibear  29.1 #6083 8:05PM
people try and do everything and anything to save money and its really sad when people do this :( I hope everything works out and press charges so sorry this happened ** hugs ** - mommy_likes_minnie  270.8 #1154 8:09PM
The police and Disneyland investigators have all the information I had on the person. They seem optimistic about catching her. She did it to 71 people. I just wanted to warn anyone who may be thinking about it. I've had numerous good experiences on craigslist and ebay. I just ran into a bad person. Hopefully it will work out good in the end. Thanks for listening. - chrisjrTCB  55.8 #4552 8:12PM
If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Sorry this happened to you. Hopefully Disney catches these people. - CJ  274.9 #1119 8:12PM
That sucks, hopefully they find the punk who did this to u, those web sites are hard to trust... XoXo - LAHaPpY13420  43.0 #5075 8:12PM
So true CJ that old saying woulda saved me. - chrisjrTCB  55.8 #4552 8:13PM
I don't understand how it worked for 3 weeks and then didn't. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 8:17PM
The person bought them online with a stolen credit card I think. Then sold them to me for a savings of about $100 each. I bought 4 of them. The fraud was discovered then Disneyland cancelled the cards. I'm assuming the fraud was noticed when they received a bill that's why the worked for 3 weeks. It seemed so legit but I just hope they catch her. - chrisjrTCB  55.8 #4552 8:24PM
did you ever meet this person ?? - mommy_likes_minnie  270.8 #1154 8:35PM
Good advice - Zooter  1402.8 #126 8:51PM
