Hello lounge! I have an update for you all in regards to the RAK most helped me win... Unfortunately yesterday we were not able to go inside the park because my friend did not have a hand stamp upon entering. I purchased a ticket for him and we are planning to return to the resort to make his 1st visit EVER happen before the month is over. I will keep you all posted once a date is chosen, in order for you all to keep a close eye on here for pictures. You should have seen him how happy he was just to see the gates! I can only imagine once he's actually inside!

I was offering the RAK because I was taking two people into the park that day. I'm sure many of you know that CMs can check up to three people in at a time. So I wanted to use the third ticket. I had pushed back the meet time so that JAGOfficial could get from Northridge to Anaheim on time, but he was in completely stopped traffic and I didn't want to keep the other two waiting, so by the time he got there, it was too late. :( - uhhliana  32.9 #5715 11:22PM
Thanks for explaining what happened - PinkElephants  745.7 #259 11:29PM
Aww that sux...but still don't understand why he lied about not entering because of a hand stamp? - annjay07  170.5 #2400 11:30PM
Maybe he thought the RAKed ticket was only a hand stamp to get in? - Vegan7LuvsStitch  1026.3 #178 11:37PM
Hello everyone! I am not lying about a hand stamp. Uhhliana gave us a ticket. We walked up to the front gates and when the cast member scanned the ticket, they asked for a hand stamp. Since we had not got in, he did not have one! We were turned away at the gates. Our best solution was to upgrade my one day ticket to an annual pass and come back later this month after I offered my friend to purchase a ticket for him during Christmas week. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:44AM
Thanks for explaining things. So sorry it didn't work out. - leafs17  130.3 #3042 8:33AM
So you won the RAK and didn't use it?? I feel as if you took it from someone else who could of really used/wanted it. This really leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. I wish I had the money or a ticket that I could RAK off to someone who could actually use it. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 9:28PM
I agree with Armenda - leafs17  130.3 #3042 9:51PM
Well said - spaceranger916  376.5 #601 12:13AM
you shouldn't jump to conclusions so fast, nobody knows what happened. - lina1990  124.3 #3139 12:18AM
Hello Armenda! As I said mentioned before, I did use the RAK. The RAK giver gave me a ticket to use, when entering the gates my friend was asked for a hand stamp. He did not have one and he was turned away. Sorry for the late responce but I'm still a rookie in this app as I have mentioned in the past. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:18AM
Sorry for the misunderstanding. Thank you for responding. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 9:39AM
UPDATE (12/18): Hello everyone! My sincere apologies for not responding to your comments. As I have mentioned before, I am still a Rookie on this app and hardly check it unless I have a Disneyland trip coming up (which by now many of you know I'll be going more often because I now have a Premium Annual Passport). I have answered mostly all the comments but in case someone is still confused.... I DID GET A TICKET from the RAK giver (My friend kept I as a memory of the time he was so close to going into Disneyland Park). I will not post a picture of it because it has the name of the RAK Giver and I don't want to put anyone in any trouble since that person is a resort employee. As I mentioned, Uhhliana invited two other individuals that morning. Me and my friend were stuck in traffic and she decided to walk her company in before we got there in order not to make them wait. Once arriving, we met Uhhliana infront of where she world WOD, and she gave us a ticket. She told us to mention upon entry to say "We forgot a hand stamp". Before heading to the gates I purchased a ticket for myself. I went in first through the turnstiles at Disneyland and then my friend. When my friend got the ticket scanned that was given as a RAK, the cast member asked him for a hand stamp. He didn't have one and got turned away. I got out of Disneyland and offered my friend a ticket on my behalf but he wanted to just come back on another day because he felt embarrassed about what had happened. We decided we would go back Christmas week. I upgraded my ticket to a Premium Annual pass since it wasnt blocked on those days and to get reinburst on parking. That is what happened. I believe Uhhliana is not a bad person and things didn't go as she planned. She even showed it on a text conversation we had later that day. Hopefully this clears the confusion. Today ill be at the parks using my AP pass for the first time. If anyone wants to meet me, I'd love to meet you too! - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:49AM
I'm confuzzled, so you're saying you didn't enter the park at all because your friend didn't have a handstamp? correct me if I'm wrong, but the first entry is with a ticket, THEN when you exit, you get a handstamp. No? - PrincessMacy  536.5 #385 9:56PM
Correct. The ticket had been used apperantly before according to the reaction in getting on here. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:19AM
Why would someone offer a used ticket as a RAK? - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 6:19PM
Uhhliana is a cast member and receives ticket on a frequent basis. She invited two other individuals to the park that day. Unfortunately me and my friend were completely stuck in traffic and walked in her other two friends. Upon arrival, she gave us a ticket. When entering, my friend was asked for a handstamp but sice it was his first time entering... He did not have one. As I commented before, next solution at the moment wa to upgrade my ticket to an annual pass and we decided we would come during Christmas week. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:58AM
Jagofficial I gotta give it up to you. If people compared me to a scammer, said my actions left a bad taste in their mouth, and other negative things that I've seen in this thread I would not have been able to keep a cool head like you did. Props on that. I hope you and your friend enjoy your upcoming visit - dsmdanny  144.9 #2795 5:24AM
You have to maintain a positive look at life... If you don't, you are not living life at its 100%. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:08PM
Was the park at capacity due to Dick Van Dyke and his birthday narration? - GrumpyPirateDad  1936.2 #86 9:31PM
Not even close. - lostgirl7988  697.8 #278 10:13PM
Not at that moment because his happened around noon. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:20AM
This makes NO sense at all! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 12:39AM
And yet he still hasn't offered an adequate explanation... - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 6:15PM
Hi guys! I usually don't check the app unless I have trip coming up which is tomorrow to go get my friend ticket for next week. Hopefully I was able to clear up any doubts anyone had. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:59AM
Something is definitely fishy here... I call BP (bull poop) - JRDrummer_CM  875.4 #211 12:53AM
I agree! Something smells like a whole fish market here! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 6:07PM
Uhhliana left out the part of her giving us a ticket which made this whole confusion. We still have the ticket she gave us that day. I do not want to post pictures of it because it had her name and I don't want to cause her any problems. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:27AM
It is strange he has not answered questions in the last day, but maybe he does not come on a lot. Remember, he posted this, I don't know if a person pulling a scam would post it to tell us all about it, usually they just disappear, (or come back on and tell us how poor they are so we will give them more things!). - secretagentangel  4658.3 #28 6:32PM
I was thinking the same thing.....why would he make a post and draw attention to some kind of scam.....still, something smells fishy. - Princessana08  69.9 #4164 7:52PM
Oh no guys! No scam here! Uhhliana gave us a ticket but when we got to the entrance gates, they asked for a handstamp but we didn't have one to go in. It was sad, but we couldn't do anything about it except buy another ticket. We are going next week in order for my friend to have a FULL Disney day. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:37AM
So you're friend never entered the park meaning he never got a hand stamp....soooo if he couldn't get in with the ticket he had that means someone entered and handed you the ticket to walk back out to give to your friend. Correct? - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 6:49PM
oooohhh thats what I was thinking. :( - madsdad  1868.2 #92 6:53PM
Yes, but that also unfortunately means that the MWer who gave away the "RAK" was responsible. - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 6:57PM
The MWer who gave the RAK is a CM who's given other passes as RAK's before... - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #781 7:18PM
The only other possibility I can imagine involves him attempting to use the RAK ticket for himself AND his friend, and it didn't work out so well. I don't remember if JAGOfficial said he had an AP... - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 7:37PM
I bought a one day ticket after meeting with Uhhliana infront of where she works. Once at the gates my ticket was scanned and went in. When scanning Uhhliana's ticket, a hand stamp was asked and he did not have one since we were just entering. The solution to this was to upgrade my ticket to an annual pass and offer him a ticket during Christmas as my treat. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:48AM
So u guys got in at least one park? You get a hand stamp only when coming out of a park... - annjay07  170.5 #2400 9:07PM
I did with the ticket I purchased at the ticket booths. Uhhliana's ticket required a hand stamp and my friend got turned away. I immediately exited Disneyland park and offered him a ticket during Christmas week. I upgraded my one day ticket to a Premium annual pass to be able to go during Christmas week and get the $15 back I invested in parking. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:25AM
πŸ˜§β“β“ - MermaidHunter  141.3 #2864 9:15PM
I feel there is more of an explanation here and we aren't understanding the context. What happened to the RAK ticket? - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 9:31PM
We still have it. The people at the gates didn't keep it. My friend kept it as a memoir of the time he almost got into the park. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:29AM
I don't get it. You only get a hand stamp when you leave the park. He never went in? Buuuuuh ❓ - BettyPoop  237.5 #1500 9:52PM
No. Never. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:29AM
To me it sounds like they were given a used ticket.... But I could be reading it wrong - brodysmommy  430.5 #508 9:53PM
I believe at this time with all I read, I think so too! - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:29AM
Please clarify as we are all confused - LaPearleNoir  1789.4 #94 10:32PM
Clarified in other comments but will post a complete update since it seems many are confused about the matter. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:30AM
Yes please clarify I entertered but I knew I had no chance to take my mom. I REALLY wanted to take mom... - annjay07  170.5 #2400 11:49PM
I'm so sorry to hear that. At least know that we were turned down at the gates. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:31AM
Wow thanks for explaining to all of us what happened...I totally understood what you were trying to get at. I used to be a cm so that's why I was like what's going on here? But ya...so sorry and hope you and ur friend finally get to go in before the year ends. The park looks beautiful!!! - annjay07  170.5 #2400 6:31AM
Where you trying to use one ticket to enter for the both of you? - BELLEisima  366.6 #623 12:22AM
Of course not. I purchased a one day park hopper ticket moments before using the ticket we were given as the RAK. When we got turned away, I upgraded my ticket to an Annual Premium Pass to bring him during Christmas week on my behalf. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:32AM
To me, this just does make sense. Did you possibly leave out part of your story? - misschurro  6361.2 #17 6:32PM
But you GOT a First Visit pin??? - misschurro  6361.2 #17 6:34PM
Nope didn't leave anything out. Except the part that I upgraded my one day ticket to a Premium Annual pass to make the trip during Christmas week. I had a first time visit button because Uhlianna mentioned they had them at the store she works at. Got it before entering the park. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:52AM
Maybe the RAK was for a used park hopper? And the first person to use it used it earlier that day? - KylaShea  632.7 #319 6:47PM
Don't PH have to be signed, though? - misschurro  6361.2 #17 6:50PM
I never signed mine... then again, that was over a year ago. Sigh... now I'm sad. LOL - KylaShea  632.7 #319 6:54PM
When I took my mom in November, they made her sign her 2 day PH and whip out her ID for DL and DCA each time - misschurro  6361.2 #17 6:56PM
They just started making people sign the 3 or more day tickets to stop the "rental" tickets, but not sure on the park hoppers. I wonder if he thought they could go in to both parks, went to dca, got a button, no handstamp and then could not get in to DL? who knows until the man comes back to post!! - secretagentangel  4658.3 #28 6:59PM
I'm glad they're crackin down. No more scalpers/rentals! - KylaShea  632.7 #319 7:05PM
Never understood the rental thing, I know it is a way to save money, but I just think its spooky going to some unknown office and giving them my personal id and having to come back later at night to return the rental. Weird to me but .... - secretagentangel  4658.3 #28 7:12PM
The RAK was indeed a park hopper that was given to Uhhliana when checking the rest of her party in before our arrival. Since we didn't go in with them at that point in time, my friend never got a handstamp with the ticket that made its exit with Uhhliana. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:50AM
He won this RAK from a cast member... - annjay07  170.5 #2400 7:25PM
From Uhhliana - misschurro  6361.2 #17 7:28PM
She is a CM in DTD - misschurro  6361.2 #17 7:29PM
Correct I did. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:48AM
Maybe he made up the story to cover for her signing him in. He didn't want to put her in blast as signin him in so low life's wouldn't harass her for sign ins - Mrsblue  693.1 #283 12:44AM
I have no clue what this means, but "uhhliana" did everything in her power to make this day happen. We are looking to go back next week during Christmas! - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:34AM
Thank you for explaining yourself and responding with a positive attitude toward the wrong assumptions. - LittleStarSweeper  353.7 #665 4:48AM
No worries. I'm sorry I didn't log in earlier. Hopefully everyone gets to read the update I just put up. Maybe you can help me :) - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 4:50AM
I'm sure they will. Most people here tend to be very understanding. I'd be glad to help. I'm sorry about what happened to you and your friend. I hope your next trip is a success. - LittleStarSweeper  353.7 #665 4:55AM
My husband is a CM and I as a spouse can bring people in too. I can bring myself and 4 other guest with me ALL guest must be with me the very first time I walk in the gates. If I only have 3 guest with me I can not bring in an extra guest later that day. Also if they were the special Chistmas CM tickets they all had to be used at the same time. So when she walked her other two guest in the 3rd ticket needed to be used too. I hope that makes sense and clears up a little. - Lifeguardmom  295.2 #940 5:33AM
Thank you so much for taking the time and explaining that. Maybe hearing it from the CM perspective will help even more clear up this scenario. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 5:41AM
No worries as I was reading this post I could kinda see what happened. - Lifeguardmom  295.2 #940 6:42AM
Thanks for the explanation. I hope you and your friend have a wonderful time next week. - LaPearleNoir  1789.4 #94 6:19AM
Cannot wait! Eating at Carthay Circle for the 1st time! - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:33AM
Hope you have a good trip when you are able to get there with your friend, it sounds like he will appreciate the visit! - MJmouse  288.9 #981 6:33AM
I know he will! I cannot wait to see his facial expressions! - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:34AM
So sorry that happened to you both. How disappointing. I am glad you have a second chance. What a nice RAK, too bad it didn't work out that day. : ( - 7mouskedoodles  371.6 #613 7:20AM
Things happen for a reason. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:34AM
Thanks for the explanation and for keeping a positive attitude!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 8:32AM
You always have to main positive attitude in life... We can't take everything to serious or else life gets pretty boring. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:35AM
I would of left Northridge 3 hours before the time uhhlian gave you to show up. Living in LA(specially in the valley) you know there is going to be allot of traffic specially on the 5 fwy. Sucks for you that you didn't make it, but hopefully you can learn from this on time management. - VfxGenie  1556.7 #109 9:00AM
I definitely know about time management specially in the industry I work in. An arrangement had been made but sometimes things are not meant to happen. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:36AM
I think many people appreciate the explanation. Have fun with your friend! Lesson learned: never post to MW unless you plan on monitoring your post, lol. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 9:04AM
Trust me... Now I know. You all are intense! - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:36AM
And I can definitely attest to the fact that traffic was terrible that day. We were at the park on Wednesday, as well, and the 5 South was practically a crawl from Burbank all the way to Anaheim... took forever! Hope you guys have a great time when you finally go!πŸ‘ - Nala  375.8 #603 9:13AM
Hopefully traffic cooperates next week. Ha. - JAGOfficial  50.5 #4768 3:37AM
hope you have a great time. as you can see, when a story may not sound 'right' we have to wonder. this Lounge is VERY protective about trolls and scammers, with good reason, as many have tried to get something for nothing or twist things around and tell VERY elaborate stories and make multiple accounts. we now understand what happened and hope that you and your friend have a great time next week - misschurro  6361.2 #17 6:17AM
