I checked a list on the Cast Portal of "Authorized Off-Site Disney Ticket Sales Locations". This is a list of all companies in the Orlando area which are authorized to sell tickets or vouchers for tickets and lists about 90 names. I cannot publish the list as it clearly states it is not for public release.

That name does show up on the list.

Undercovertourist.com is a site that a lot of people on this board use (I never have because I always get packages) and I've never heard a bad word about them.

This is the first year I did not book a package through Disney, we rented points. Got our tickets at Undercover Tourist, cheaper than Disney by almost $150! I was a bit worried about the shipping time as they said allow 22 business days for delivery, but we got our tickets in about a week.

Cheshire Figment is a Cast Member - he is referring to Disney's internal cast member website.

Wow - I'd be seriously careful of anything that is saving you "a couple hundred" more than UT unless you have a HUGE party of people. Sounds very questionable to me, even if they do show up on Disney's authorized ticket reseller list.

The shown price does not contain tax but for a 10 day non hopper no expire they are $20 cheaper then UnderTourist mouse savers price. So i would go for it and hope for the best. I chose the print a voucher option if you ask for a real ticket to be sent the price may be more. Good luck. Let us know how you make out. IMHO Disney ticket prices are pushing the limit of outrageousness.... Thank goodness i have my next 10 years of tickets already....

I certainly wouldn't "go for it and hope for the best" when Cheshire Figment said that it's not on the list of authorized off-site Disney ticket sales locations.

Actually he said that it IS on the list.

I think that you may have misread Cheshire Figment's post (bolding mine).

Oops, you're right, I did misread it. Still, I'm much more familiar with Undercover Tourist (because it's very highly recommended by people on both this board and another one I'm on) and $20 is actually only about a 4% savings over UT's price on a 10-day no park hopper with no expiration.
