    I would like to visit your parks, however, I am not comfortable scanning my fingerprints. I see I can opt out showing ID. How about my young grandchildren. Will I need to provide an id for them as well?

    Hi Friend! Thank you for visiting planDisney and your question! 

    I completely understand not feeling comfortable with the fingerprint scan that is taken. They are used to link theme park tickets to the guest and to ensure that tickets are not transferred to someone else. However, a physical I.D. will also work for adults. For children under 18 years of age, Cast Members usually take a photo of the child to link them to their theme park tickets. If you do not feel comfortable with this, you can also bring an I.D. for them too. My planDisney pal Jessica explains further how Walt Disney World Resort uses sensitive data for guests.

    Your visit to Walt Disney World is just around the corner! Have you gotten your advanced dining reservations in order? Dining is one of my favorite parts of planning a visit to Walt Disney World, and trying new food items and different restaurants is always a "must-do" for each visit! To keep up with all the delicious offerings, visit the Disney Eats! on the Disney Parks Blog. Check out the latest Foodie Guide article highlighting all the menu items celebrating Earth Month!

    Thank you for your question again, Friend. It was magical assisting you today! Have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World next month!

    Happy Planning!
