I understand why they want to see ID, but it really is a hassle. I watched them turn people away yesterday because they didn't have a picture ID. A family was talking to a security person after they were turned away and a woman in her 40's I would say said "I left my license at home." The security officer said "So you drove here without a license."
My husband and I were appalled. First, that is none of his business, second, all she wants to do is go into the park not get a passport. We have been going to DIs for 30 years. I think they need to be careful how difficult they make it for people as they are first walking in. I appreciate the financial bottom line with trying to protect against those trying to skate the system, but it is up to them to find a better solution. Just my 2 cents.

I disagree, no adult should leave the house without some type of ID. And Disney has every right to ask for an ID for adults using park tickets. There is too much fraud, this has resulted in not being able to get 6 day park tickets. And honestly, I would have been appalled at the thought that she left her license at home and drove without it. I take mine everywhere with me, I always have ID on me, even if I'm not driving.

I agree with you! And I would have asked that same question as the guard!! How are you going to use a credit card with no ID? What happens if your child gets lost and they want ID to prove who you are???!!! Some of these people complaining about this is crazy. Even if you DON'T use a credit card, you should always have ID on you. God FORBID something should happen to you, what if they can't identify you and you are unconscious? Just get over it and pop an ID in your purse/wallet/husbands wallet/diaper bag/backpack!!!!

also agree. You need your ID every where you go so why would you ever leave it at home? And why would anyone think its wrong to ask for ID in this day and age?

wow glad you all are so perfect you never leave home without ID- but maybe she doesn't drive, maybe her husband has his license if they need it for credit cards...maybe a lot of things- bottom line is if you travel half way across the country, you have a $2,000 vacation planned and you don't have your ID- then Disney needs to figure out what to do with you, saying tough luck isn't the answer...and just for the record I am human and do not always have my driver's license on me...it would a simple thing for them to put in bold on the info page, the planning pages, and yes definitely the tickets page- "ID now required for every adult"- will it prevent every case of no ID? no, but it would help people be prepared

Can I just add that for many overseas visitors this may mean carrying their passport into the parks each day, not a very good idea.

She never indicated to the security guard that she had drove her and I strongly disagree. That is none of disney's business. Disney may ask for ID, but I think there are several other options rather than an ID. If you are staying on site your name is on your card, and there are several other forms of information that has your name on it. I don't believe they need a picture ID as it is really the issue of whether your name is the one on the ticket.

Seriously? "Appalled"? You are aware that the physical holding of the license has nothing to do with whether she is a legal driver, or a competent driver, right? If you aren't holding your license and you get pulled over (or in an accident) they might write you up for a small ticket. But they probably won't. They can check your status on their computer.

As for the person wondering about how they can identify your unconscious body - um...by looking at your cell phone.

I sometimes carry my ID. I sometimes don't. I don't give it much thought.

Yep! You never know what can happen. Just carry ID people... And I feel that goes double on a trip, if you end up unconscious the first thing EMS will look for is ID. We are in the digital age and all medical records are going electronic and are being tied together so if you turn up in an ER in a strange place they will know your history. Better to be safe then sorry!

I'm pretty sure I left my ID in the hotel safe last time we went. I brought only the bare essentials with me into the parks. I'm glad I know about the ID being needed now, as I'd probably do the same for our upcoming trip.

Where did I say I was perfect? I never said that. You are correct, maybe she doesn't drive but that doesn't mean she doesn't need ID of some type for some reason. And if she's traveled halfway across the country then she absolutely should have some type of proof of who she is! And if she flew then she had to have ID to board the plane....
I carry my license in a small wallet that fits in my pocket, my bra or my boot so no matter what I always have some kind of proof of who I am just in case.

No, your name isn't on your "card" at DL because DL doesn't do KTTW like WDW does. Besides, that's simply a name, I can tell you my name is anything but without a photo ID I have no proof. The name on your park hopper is simply a name, there is no photo attached to confirm it is you who is trying to use the ticket. Without asking for a photo ID to confirm someone can simply buy a 6 day hopper, put any name on it and tell the person who buys it and uses it fraudulently to use that name for the day.

No, no adult should leave the house without a photo ID. What if there is an accident and you cannot speak for yourself? How do they know who you are? Emergency workers (my Dad is an EMT) stress this all the time, if you have ID the police/hospital can pull up information on you and you can get the help you need in a timely manner.

The ticket is not small and yes the likelihood is that you will get a ticket, even if they can look you up on their computer to confirm the legitimacy of your license. And ummmmm they wouldn't be able to ID my body with my cell phone as it is locked and emergency workers won't be able to access it. I take my purse or wallet when I leave my home, otherwise how do I pay for things? LOL

Look, if you want to leave your ID at home fine, that's on you but I'd rather not be a Jane Doe or in a coma in the hospital without my family knowing where I am. The what-ifs are enough for me to take my ID wherever I go.

I can tell you from family memeber experience that the ticket is far from small, at least in my state. As someone else pointed out, in terms of ID, a cellphone is probably one of the least reliable ways to identify someone.

Bottom Line is if Disney wants to ask people coming on to their property for ID they have every right to do so. While you may actually not legally have to carry an ID with you at all times, I would guess you have to be prepared to deal with the consequences of not having one when it might be needed. It's a small peice of plastic (passports a different story) how hard can it be to carry with you?
