Sharing a 7 day hopper ticket all on one dayUniversal Orlando: Is that allowed?
From Valerie LindquistI am trying to buy Universal tickets (1 day hopper) for 4 adults and 2 kids. Looking on- line, I found a deal for the tickets to be cheaper, but I would have to watch 120 minute time share presentation. Has anyone done this? Also, the man on the phone was saying I could get a 7 day hopper ticket for $130 and just use it for me whole group in one day. Is that allowed? Otherwise it costs $692, so if I can do that it would definitely save a lot of money. Let me know,thanks!

It's one ticket per person, at both Disney and Universal.
Also, assuming the person who gave you that bogus answer is the same person pitching you the timeshare presentation, that person's already lied to you once. Do you really trust him to come through with the discount tickets, too?
From Dominick DAs Robert said, no. However, if you want discounted tickets, go to AAA or Undercover Tourist.

From Mark FairleighAlso, do not trust the whole 2 hour presentation schtick...they will keep you there a lot longer trying to sell you a unit. My wife's parents fell for this trap once. Don't be that cheap, you'll end up paying for it. Like Dom suggested use a reputable site like Undercover Tourist. I used them last year with no problems and good savings.

From N BThere are people that sell tickets on eBay, but I wouldn't trust anything that wasn't purchased directly from the Universal website or ticket offices. You never know what you are getting when you get them second hand.

From Anthony MurphyI am sorry, but it is a no.

If that guy told you that, he is lying. Everybody in your party must have a ticket. Disney doesn't fool around with those. Likely, those tickets are not authorized either
From Jake Johnsoni have done the timeshare tour get free tickets deal. you have to give them 90 mins but after the time is up you can tell if you were going to buy timeshare you would go to timeshare users group TUG2.NET or Ebay and get a week for a dollar. no joke a dollar..

most likely the place with the timeshare tour is Westgate Resorts or as some on the TUG boards call them Wastegate. They are some of the worst managed resorts in Orlando.
or you can try undercover tourist or i like orlandofuntickets.com.. they have a 2 day plus 2 day, 2 park pass for $140 bucks. the 7 day passes are nice but you will not go for 7 days.
have a good time.
