    I keep my drivers license in my little lanyard thing. Whenever I go to a resort they ask for it (even if staying onsite). This past trip has been the first time that the major parks have asked to see my Id as well

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    That's interesting that y'all don't have to have a photo drivers license. We do. Do you have to have another form of photo id?

    historically in the UK there has been no legal requirement for us to have any form of ID on us as we walk around at all. Police can demand production of a drivers license but that license didnt have a photo and could be produced later at a station rather than by the side of the road.

    Some years ago the drivers license was updated to have 2 parts. A paper bit (just like it's always been) which is the full legal license, and a credit card sized photo license which is useful to carry around but isn't considered "the full license" without the paper bit :/ ironically, if you show the card in the UK almost every official body will say "wheres the paper?" whereas in the states they'll say "thanks" so the photo driving license has always felt more useful in the states than the UK!! the photo license also needs renewing every 10 yrs, the paper license was valid until the age of 70 or something (cant remember exactly)

    For these reasons, people who have the OLD paper license hardly ever want to update them for the photo version!

    In previous years, given 9/11 and the general stepping up of wanting to identify everyone at all times, millions have been spent on UK ID card schemes with laws being proposed that would make it mandatory for everyone to carry valid id at all times. This legislation has repeatedly failed and the ID card schemes scrapped.

    To HAVE to carry ID, and especially photo ID, is VERY VERY VERY un-UKlike in fact one of the things UKers generally find amazing and actually offensive, is being ID'd in the states. It's one of those cultural things :-)

    There isn't a time limit, so you could buy it now and activate it in December. I think I bought them online at wdw.com and they arrived in about 4 days.

    Thanks for the info :-) I've grown up here with the fact that it is the law to have a photo id on my person at all times. It actually seems weird to not have to do that.

    Never been asked for ID at WDW - yet! But SeaWorld and Busch Gardens always need ID to park with annual passes. It's been hit and miss at Universal if we need the ID.
