I received notice that starting next weekend anyone attempting to board a SoG bus from TTC, the parks, or DTD will have to produce a Resort ID or Room Key AND an ID (preferably a military ID). I don’t have a problem with this but apparently many do, claiming this will cause to many delays in transportation.
We were not told exactly why this change is taking place but there are 2 theory’s floating around.
- Security. I can understand this since everyone must show an ID and check-in with the Gate Guard when driving in anyway.
- Abuse. While I won’t rule this one out completely because of so those that try to avoid paying to park by parking at DTD or the Resorts, especially the monorail resorts, but could this be spreading to other resorts as well. Could there really be that many people that would do such a thing? I guess I can’t fathom the idea since I would never intentionally park elsewhere just to save a few bucks.
There are quite a few that stay in WDW resorts but take a bus to SoG for tickets and other lesser priced items. I’m guessing this will stop them since they won’t have a room key/resort id.
