    AP Question

    My wife and I just bought AP's for us and our daughters, and got them in the mail a couple weeks ago. When we get our actual AP, is it made out of something durable? I've heard they were plastic before, but not sure if that's true. I was wondering, due to wear and tear, maybe even wet rides! Can anyone fill me in? Thanks!

    yep, when you go to the park, the CM at the main gate will scan your card. Then you need to head over to the AP Center and they take your picture and give you a plastic card fr your AP. Kinda like a credit card.

    I have a premium AP, and I can assure you that the actual APs are made of plastic, but the plastic is pretty thin. So be careful of them possibly snapping in two. : o

    +1 on it being thin.. i was actually pretty disappointed in how thin it was..

    and then for my birthday, i get the Birthday Fun Card only worth $72 in contrast with my $269 Deluxe AP, and it was much thicker.

    is it thin for the fastpass machines or to save money?

    I believe they're thin because the main entrance turnstiles have (had?) scanners that the CM can feed the card into instead of scanning by hand. They don't use them anymore.
    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

    I think I remember these! were the cards fed in a fashion where it would go through the front of the machine and get spit out near the back?

    Thats for a lost pass. If a pass breaks because of use/wallet/clumsy/ect., just go to the AP Center to turn it in and get a new card.

    It could be the type of machine that they use to print onto the cards too. I know some schools use the same type of machine to take a students picture and print it directly onto the plastic card.

    I think they used to be thicker! The plastic is pretty thin, but we've never had a problem. Enjoy your time!!
