ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - An increasing number of tourists are finding a way to save $40 or more on day passes to California's Disney theme parks by "renting" one day of a multi-day park hopper pass from unofficial ticket agencies.
The Orange County Register reported Wednesday that the practice is not illegal.
But Disney tickets are non-transferable and anyone caught doing it will have the passes confiscated.
A five-day, park-hopper pass is $290 and $58 a day, the customer can go to Disneyland and California Adventure.
At the gate, the single-ticket cost is $125.
The ticket agency will rent out the five-day passes by the day, for roughly $80 to $99, and pocket the difference.
Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown says the theme park is working on technology to stop the practice.
