On a recent visit to Orlando, we found we couldn't possibly use all our passes to the different Disney parks. We were told my a small business owner that he would buy our remaining tickets if we would upgrade them with two more days, which we did. After upgrading the tickets my husband decided to ask a few people on the street if they would be interested in the tickets in order to save time. He was stopped and held by the local police threatening him with a felony charge. My question is, is this a possible felony or could they be just trying to scare him? Thank you!!!
Was he selling the tickets at face value?
He was asking far less than the value.
Then the officer was being a jerk.
Florida allows a person to re-sell a ticket for up to face value.
However, Florida law bans the reselling of tickets for an event on the property where the event is taking place.
Thank you so much!!!
You are welcome.
