Free tickets for timeshare tour?

Hi all. Friends are going to Disney next month staying through SkyAuction and would like to tour some other places. How would they find a tour that offers free attraction tickets? (They ARE actually thinking about buying, not just for the tickets!) Thanks so much.

just use any web search engine and type in "free disney ticket" and you will find a slew of sites. Just be prepared to give up your free time, perosnal infor (salary incliuded) and first born child. After you get a few names of resorts "giving" the tickets away, come back and do a search on them here to see what others have posted. Good luck!

YEP!

We did one of the "90" minute tour once, and the tickets aren't free (maybe some places not sure) the're cheaper but not free and the 90 minute was like 4 hours if not more.
And yes, you give away all your info and they will try to sale !

Good Luck!

They only get 90 minutes for the perk. No matter where they are in their presentation say thanks and head for the gift desk. I just say I didn't know this would be so long and we're to meet friends in 15 minutes -- gotta go.

WE DID! But they take you here, and then there, and they do the tour and they tell you "we not done" and they need to give you a paper to get the tickets!!!

Bingo! You can leave at 90 minutes. Getting your "Freebies" is not as easy!

I think the price is too high. My time is worth something. LOL!

Pixiedust32, the timeshare tour offers posted in this thread include discounted stays with "free" theme park tickets included as the "gift"/bribe to attend - see the Marriott, Hilton, Fairfield & Bluegreen websites listed - they all have them.

Lorilori, if your friends are seriously considering a timeshare (or even toying with the idea), encourage them to learn about resales first. There's no reason to pay full price when they can save thousands of dollars (up to 75% off) by purchasing a resale. There are a tiny number of situations where they would reasonably buy from the developer but are those sales pitches effective at swaying the tempted buyer!!! Your friends can learn more about all this at TUG - Timeshare Users Group. Wish them well!

FREE Tickets

Hi all,

We received free tickets when we toured and I know they are still available. However, you do have to book a 2 or 3 night stay to receive the package deal. At any rate, $69.00 for 3 nights in a 5 Star/Gold Crown it is worth doing the 90 minute tour.

if you want more info, please feel free to email me at onmedic@sympatico.ca

P.S. I am quite versed in the timeshare resale market if they wish to chat.

Cheers,

Steve

We do timeshare tours every time we go to WDW. We just walk up to those little booths on the street, tell them what we want and ask where we can get it. Usually we ask for at least $80 in cash. Make sure you tell them no matter how well they like the timeshare, not to buy from the developer. You can get any timeshare on the resale market for much much less. Plus, Orlando is an easy place to trade into for most timeshares. Debby

Wyndham Palms and West Gate were giving $100 cash for their tours the last time we were down there 2 weeks ago. Just went to one of the little booths.

Also, make sure your friends learn about the resale market and they practice saying NO NO NO to the timeshare people.

I do this (timeshare tours) for fun or when I want extra tickets or Disney Dollars, etc. Sometimes they even offer cash! I have done Fairfield, Marriott, Hilton, Westgate, Wyndham Palms, Silver Lake and Ron Jon. Marriott and Fairfield were the friendliest and easiest to get out away from after 90 minutes. WESTGATE is SHARKY!!!!!! AVOID THEM. In 2001 I posted about all the tours I did in one week but can't find the post.

My sister got £500 (nearly $1,000) off a week's accomodation in return for attending a timeshare presentation in the same resort - can't remember which one (sorry) as she stayed 3 different villas over a 3-week holiday

WOW!!! Great deal, i use to work for Marriott and now only my husband does, and we get great associate discounts, but we like to get the attraction tickets for a cheap price.
We had stay at the Marriott Orlando World Center for $39.00 per night and in the Villas for $79.00. I think i can do timeshare tour since i no longer work for them.

So you go to the booths and ask for the tours? And they give you the $$?
Why do you mean by "tell the no matter how well they like the timeshare, not to buy from the developer" do you mean to get out of it?

Thanks
