I called the resort and asked the CM if they check the ID of the person using the So Cal hopper. He said "NO" Do you think this is true or up for grabs? My sister lives well within the zip codes authorized to use them so my friend Lisa CAN purchace them. I have heard sometimes the gate CMs ask for ID which would be a problem because sis is not coming with us. I have an AP. Is it worth the risk? I think it is for that price but just don't want to have my friend embarassed.
