Fingerprint Scan Reset?

I am staying at the Poly next week and will have 2 days left on my Park Hopper passes - which are also my room key, charge card, etc. I understand that the fingerprint scan keeps me from sharing these with others, but if the front desk reissues my room card does this reset the Fingerprint scan?

I know some of you won't like the idea, but I hate to let the extra days go to waste when I know some locals who could really use the help right now.

Thanks!

Would have searched but that doesn't seem possible right now??

I don't have an answer to your question, but I'm preparing myself for some of the responses I'm sure are coming.

Nope.

The "Ticket Info" will remain the same and it will link with the finger scan data on file
for that ticket.

nope

That should not reset the scan results. Those are tied to a database ID in the main system, not the physical ticket itself.

So, odds are, they will not work.

The finger scan algorithm result is tied to the serial number of the ticket. When a replacement ticket is issued, all of the ticket's history, including the finger scan information, transfer to the new ticket.

Thank you all for your replies! Good information.

What is the procedure if the fingerprint scan doesn't work? I never carry my ID when going to the parks...is a signature match the standard procedure?

Not sure a signature will suffice. The few times we've had scan issues with our APs we've needed to produce a picture ID.

Transferring tickets is prohibited by both Disney AND Florida Law.

If you fail a finger scan, they ask for ID and if you don't have ID, the tickets may be confiscated and whoever trying to use them asked to leave Disney property.

They may or may not ask you certain questions about the tickets that only the original purchaser could know. Same deal, get it wrong -- bye bye and they keep the tickets.

Really.. is all that worth it?

FLA residents get some discounts to buy their own.

If there is 2 days left on non-expire you can keep them for next time. If they are expire you could upgrade to non-expire to keep them for yourself.

We buy 10 day no experation tickets. I always get them mixed up and don't know which one is mine and which belongs to husband. In the past it seems like as long as we used the same one for a particular day (readmittance to a park) it didnt matter. Is this true or do I have to start writing names on the cards. I would hate to get to a park and find out that I couldnt get in because I had the wrong ticket.

You should always carry a photo ID with you at all times. At Disney World or not at Disney World. From personal experience, I can assure you that it much better to have one in an emergency than to not have one. It's the one piece of information emergency personnel need.

Tickets have a space on the back for you to write your name. This should prevent mixups among family members.

Here's some help. Tell your local friends that every time they leave Disney with days remaining on their own tickets Mickey would like to see them again real soon.
