Last time we were at Disneyland while our annual passes were still good, every time I would attempt to purchase something and use my AP for my discount I'd get carded. Their excuse was always "oh, we don't have your photo in our systems yet like the turnstiles so we have to see ID before you can use your discount."
Do they still do this? IMO its annoying and it was hard when my older son wanted to buy something he couldn't because they would card him and he never carried his high school ID card with him.
Wondering now because we might be moving back to California soon and looking to buy So Cal Annual Passes but we won't have our CA ID's before we get our passes. I'm wondering if we'll get in trouble if they ask for ID and we pull out another state's license. (we will be using our utility bill as proof of residency to get the passes.)
