4 Free Disney Tickets?

If you are reading this, you likely saw one your friends share a link which shows a coupon for 4 free tickets to Disneyland. The URL in the link itself may be somewhat strange, such as That’s because the coupon is fake and the offer is a scam.

Don’t click this bogus offer!

The URL in the screenshot above was created in April 2016, and you will likely see a URL like this with a similar pattern. These scammers register large numbers of throwaway domains that they use until sufficient complaints arise to block it on sites such as Facebook. When that happens, they simply use another throwaway domain and continue their scam.

If you click the link, you’ll be taken to a landing page with a countdown which tells you that to get your free tickets, you must first share the post with your friends.

Don’t share this with your friends!

Even if you don’t share the page, you’ll eventually be asked to fill out a survey to get your free gift. From this point on, there will be no mention of Disney tickets, and you have just been tricked into filling out surveys and other offers that will never get you those coveted free passes. Perhaps worse is that you shared the link with your friends, and may have inadvertently scammed them as well.

Similar Scams

Since late 2015, there has been a rise in scams like the Disney version shown above. In recent months we have written about fake ticket offers from Kohl’s, Little Caesars, and Marlboro. You may want to peruse those past articles to see the similarities between them and the current Disney incarnation. In some cases, the links themselves have been flagged by antivirus software as having malicious code.

This isn’t the first time Disney’s name has been used for bogus social media promotions. Back in 2013, a number of fake Facebook pages were created that promised free passes. Those bogus pages were created to build a large fanbase, so the pages could be later sold for a quick profit.

Bottom Line

The fake coupon circulating online which promises free Disney passes is a scam. You’ll be tricked into filling out surveys and signing up for other offers, and you’ll never receive any passes for Disney.

If you shared such a link, you may want to go back and delete it and warn your friends that it is a scam. Better yet, drop them a link to this article! 🙂
