    Do the parking attendants check ID when using your magic key

    Hi Shelley!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so glad that you're hEAR. Thank you for sending this Disneyland Resort Magic Key planning question our way!

    How are you enjoying the coolest club in the Kingdom, Shelley? Did you know that in addition to all of the perks of your Magic Key annual pass, like shopping and dining discounts or a members-only dining location in Disney California Adventure Park, there's an Instagram account dedicated to just Magic Key news? Be sure to follow to find out about the newest giveaways, treats, exclusives, events, magic, and more!

    To answer your question, Yes, sort of. Instead of needing to present a photo ID in addition to the Magic Key that is to be scanned, Cast Members in the Theme Park Parking Areas scan a Key and then check their computer screens which shows the photo that was taken of the Keyholder at the theme park turnstile entrance when that Guest first activated their Key. These Cast Members are really fast, too, you almost don't even notice them checking. But if something is amiss they'll for sure ask; I once accidentally had my son's pass pulled up, to which the Cast Member asked if he was in the car. I was confused at first but then realized that even though he was way under the driving age, I must have mixed up the passes. All I had to do was roll down the window to confirm that he was indeed with me and we were good to go! If you have multiple key holders with parking privileges in your family, they can apply their parking discount towards whichever car they rode in that day. My parents once took my then four-year-old to the parks without me but they used his pass to cover the parking!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR your question up, Shelley! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Instagram account where we're sharing all kinds of tips and tricks. We even just launched the brand new planDisney Podcast! I hope that you're having so much fun during this magical Key Holder yEAR! And If you have any more Disneyland Resort planning or Magic Key questions, We're All Ears!
