I'm trying to find a ticket broker who would buy Disney World tickets that we're not going to use. Disney won't give refunds and we've got over $3,000 in tickets that are worthless to us.
I think a ticket broker in the Orlando area would probably be the best, but I have no idea who to approach for the best deal. We have eight four day, four park tickets and would be willing to sell them for half price or less.
Thanks in advance.

Are they date restricted?

I'm surprised the tix are transferable... Has anyone been successful with partial refunds from Disney or thru CC?

rated:
No date restrictions 

rated:
Unused tickets do not expire. But they are non refundable and technically, non transferable. Do you have the actual paper tickets? If it's at will call, they usually require ID and the CC used to purchase them.

I thought Disney stopped selling non expiration tickets.

Tickets (which can be from 1 to 10 days in length - except UK which can get 14 days) do not expire until first use. Once you use one of the days, any remaining days must be used within 14 days.

Even if you purchase a package with dining and tickets. You can get the ticket out of the package and keep it for the future. You can also apply that unused ticket towards an upgrade to an annual pass.

If you buy a 4day ticket today, but never use any of it's days (ie never scan it at a gate), it won't expire.

Exceptions are special tickets like comps or convention ones.

Yes, you are 100% correct and I knew that. I assumed that the OP had at least used part of the ticket. But re-reading the post, it's not quite clear.

You will take a terrible beating selling to a broker. Provided that the tickets are not time-limited (some are) or assigned to particular names, and are fresh out of the envelope they came in... You could easily sell them locally yourself for cash at 90% of face value. If they are the 4d-4p non-hopper tixs they just came out with @ $279, you could find takers easily @ $250. Tickets can also be sold quickly on eBay, but pitfalls exist, such as ending up with a chargeback on Paypal. Use a local resale site to advertise.

All of the above assumes the tickets are not impaired in any way. Meet the potential buyer in a public location such as inside a family restaurant, and take a friend.
