2 one day park tickets

looking for the best place to purchase 2 one day single park tickets. Any suggestions? Kinda scared of eBay, but trying to help a family on a tight budget make their trip a reality.

No authorized reseller of Disney tickets offers 1 day tickets at a discount. Your best bet is to simply buy them from Disney. Avoid eBay because you simply don't know.

I agree with the previous poster... you really dont see discounts on tickets until you buy at least 3 days....

Best choice is the Gate.

Disney does not wholesale out one or two day passes, so any of the authorized resellers who do carry them actually charge about $5.00 over Gate per ticket to help cover their costs.

Isn't there a hospital that sells the 1 day tickets as a fundraiser?

Yes - or at least used to be, but you pay full price as a donation to the hospital and then they give you the actual one day ticket for "free". Mousesavers used to list the hospital, but I couldn't find it on Mary's site right now. OP, have you checked the Mousesavers site for any discounts available to you?

Edited: And please, please do not use eBay or Craigslist.

Just because it can't be said enough: Do not buy WDW from ebay or craig's list. Even if the seller has great feedback. The risk is just too great.

There's no discount on one day tickets.

The last time I checked, the hospital had stopped doing this.
