    I've been reading everywhere that a UK drivers license is no longer being accepted at Disney to prove age for alcohol or picking up tickets and things like that. They're apparently demanding a passport and saying that it's a recent policy change, does anyone know for sure? I really don't want to carry around my passport :(

    would be good to get an official comment for sure, it's all over "certain other" forums ;-) and people are going insane about it (as usual)

    I have no idea of course, but just wanted to mention that I always carry my passport in my work bag. :unsure: I treat it as another form of identification. Sometimes you need two forms for some sort of thing or other (usually governmental matters, licenses that sort of thing). I just tucked it up in my work bag at one time and there it stays.

    Sometimes if you can't get your pass to work on entering a park. My mum was notorious for this because of arthritis she couldn't get her finger on the scanner properly.

    Oh when we used a travellers check in Target too.
