    Thanks for that Darkbeer. No, really I mean it.

    Re: Question about free day on your B-day

    Regarding just showing up without registering first, I read this in the latest issue of Westways the magazine for Auto Club members January/February issue. This statement is on page 17 under their Out & About segment:

    Guests of Disneyland Resort in Anaheim and Walt Disney World near Orlando, Florida, are entitled to free admission on their birthday through 2009. Identification is required and you can't just show up with ID: Preregistration is mandatory at the Disney website, disneyparks.disney.go.com. - A.B.
    (words in red and italics are the way they look in the article)

    I've already registered but I am planning on taking a friend on her birthday in March and I told her she did not have to register. Now I'm confused.

    Re: Question about free day on your B-day

    Just to summarize what others have said because there still seems to be some confusion:
    *You do not have to pre-register, it just expedites the process at the ticket booth
    *You do need to have a government issued ID
    *Even if you pre-register, you still need a government issued ID, meaning you can't just pre-register and lie about your birthday

    Re: Question about free day on your B-day

    My Mom has her birthday Jan. 3rd and also signed up months ago and still we have not received an email.

    It's a great idea, this birthday promo, but sometimes just doesn't work out for those birthdays around holidays and who don't want to deal with the crowds.

    We won't be taking advantage of it.

    Correct.

    Plus:

    If your child doesn't have a valid gov't ID card, a birth certificate is required.

    Happy Birthday!

    Westways/AAA =/= Disney

    Of course it's best to pre-register, it'll save a lot of people (you and the Cast at the Box Office) a lot of time... but it's certainly not manditory. To echo what has already been stated a few posts above... regardless if you pre-register or not, you will STILL need to have a government issued ID (or birth certificate for small children).

    ... but again, Westways/AAA =/= Disney.

    Re: Question about free day on your B-day

    As for the e-mails, it was designed to help promote (aka sell) things like the Celebrate Meal at Big Thunder Ranch, and other special events.

    It was also supposed to be able to book online for reservations for the events (I think even with the requirement to pre-purchase the tickets), of course, the system is not yet online, so no need to promote these special features in January (Heck, the special BD meal is not opening until April.

    So I think it is a LOW priority for Disney, but they could promote things like the Plaza Inn event, but then again, it is a "low" priority...

    All that is required to receive the alternate options for you B-Day is a PAID PARK ADMISSION. APs can purchase a Block Out ticket if they wish to. Otherwise they MUST take the free ticket. And you MUST purchase the Block Out ticket BEFORE you pick up you Gift. The software in the booths requires that we scan a valid park ticket before we are allowed to issue the alternate offers.

    And it is a Free Birthday Fun Card. Valid for purchase of merchandise and tickets, but not for food. And it is a FUN CARD, not a GIFT CARD, as it expires at the end of the day and you lost any remaining value and that would be illegal in the sate of California if it was a Gift Card.

    Which would not work because it would not match you ID that you must provide for this offer to be effective.


    And we can look you up be several means if you never get your Cake in your EMail or you can't print it.

    Re: Question about free day on your B-day

    I have a question... If one of my old CM friends got me into the park the day of my birthday and I went and showed them I have a ticket in (it is a valid ticket, just not a paid for ticket) could I take advantadge of the Fun Card instead of the park admission...

    Really you can't use it for food? There goes my Blue Bayou dinner. That seems silly to me. DLR is keeping the money anyhow.

    Wait so since this whole news came about I was so excited and like awesome then found out my birthday will fall on a block out date and been trying to find out the deal and been hearing such different answers. I eventually assumed maybe I can just go up there and redeem for the Fun Card and go in the Disney store because not sure if I want to deal with the summer crowd(birthday is in June) but now your saying we have to purchase a block out pass just to receive the other benefits?

    Well that sucks. It seems like for us that fall on the blockout days sure did get the short end of the stick! Oh well. Thanks for trying to clear everything up.

    Ok, now to update my self here. As of this morning, the offer has changed.

    1-Day, 1-Park Tickets, 1-Day Park Hopper Tickets, Blocked Out APs and Comp Tickets are NOT entitled to the alternate offers.

    Blocked Out APs who UPGRADE their pass before redeeming their Birthday Gift can get the alternate offers.

    Birthday Fun Cards now WILL NOT expire. They will still not be valid for purchase of food.

    Please don't shoot the messenger...


    On the other hand... The ticket stock that the Free Birthday Tickets are issued on is really neat. Heck, all the stock that the Birthday stuff is issued on is really neat.
