    Let's say Jane keeps the Doe family's passes in her wallet. She keeps them Mickey side up. Look, I get it, if it's barcode/name side up, all that shows out of most wallets is the mag-stripe, and a lot of different cards look like that on the mag-stripe side. Most people put their ID and their credit cards in their wallet with the name side up, and when they lay these items on the counter, they're name side up. These cards don't need to be flipped to determine who they belong to, and go straight out of the wallet and onto the counter-top. Why waste the effort to flip the pass back over when it had to be flipped to determine which card was the correct one? Whether or not it's malicious, it's clearly intentional. And back when the only pass level to get discounts was the Premium, when people asked "Do I get a discount with my pass?", the percentage of non-Premium passes shown to me art side up was larger than the percentage of Premium passes shown to me art side up.
    I am not sure if I'm getting trolled at this point or not, but if so you won. If not, there are bigger fish to fry I think..

    Re: Annual Pass cards

    I just got my new card in the mail and it has an expiration date on it and a big "P".

    no Disney "D" in sight.

    The Premium is the only pass that has the "D" on it.

    What on earth...?
    In all the times I've been to Disneyland I have never had a CM specifically request this.
    I mean... I can't even... what?

    Re: Annual Pass cards

    I always try to show my pass and photo ID with the proper identifying information face up. It just makes the whole transaction easier all around. But, then again, I've worked retail and cashiering jobs. I know what they go through.

    Ditto. I've never heard that in all the years I've been going to the park.

    I just want to say, I have a defense!

    I've got a Premier pass. There's no big D or P on the back. If I give it art side down, I commonly get the deluxe discount and then have to correct the CM. I've been trying an approach where I show the art side, but as I hand it to them, I flip it over. Seems to be a best of both worlds scenario.

    That's the old-style card. It looks like they're doing a soft phase-in and not a hard switch.

    I think Olivia was referring to the "please show it to me face side up" request rather than "show me your ID". Having to show ID is not uncommon, but I have never had anyone specify that I absolutely needed to hand it to them face side up.

If John can't distinguish his pass from Jane's or Junior's from looking at the side with Mickey, Donald, and Goofy, why does he hand the Cast Member the pass with that side up and expect them to?
    I just put my stuff on the counter without paying attention to what side of the card is up. If the side that they need happens to be up, then great. If not, the worker knows what side they need, they are free to pick it up and turn it to whatever side interests them. Really, why should the paying customer have to worry about it?

    Re: Annual Pass cards

    I think we might need to take a step back and realize that no matter what side you give your pass to the CM, it takes all of a half-second to turn it over.

    This was a great laugh and I can guarantee that I will think of this thread, as I'm showing my AP to any cast member.

    Re: Annual Pass cards

    That would crack me up if they demanded I present my ID face up to them so they didn't have to flip it. I suppose I would probably do something similar in return, like demand they present my change in proper bank-faced ascending denominations spread out on the counter for visibility before I accept it.
