[QUOTE=LittleMissMagic;1132749]Goodness, it’s been two decades then, hasn’t it?
My parents had those old APs with the photos on it in the late 80s/early 90s. Back in the day, after they let their passes expire, my Dad thought he was super sly having my mom hold up her old AP for free parking (which you know, back then, was only $6)… until one day, the CM took my mom’s card and punched a bunch of holes in it. “We’ve switched to paper, now.” My mom was livid that my dad made her do that because [I]her[/I] AP got all punched up! :laugh:
But yeah, the APs are paper and look just like any other park ticket. My dad and I ruined ours on Kali River Rapids back in 01, and I was so sad because my character had been Minnie, but when they printed it again, it was Pluto. The CM was of course kind enough to continue printing the pass until it was once again Minnie. :happy:
But I think this change happened after they started doing the finger readings rather than photo identification (more accurate). It started with a two-finger reading (which we were told by a CM actually looked at your bone structure? It wasn’t that accurate because my parents could enter with each other’s passes. My sister and I didn’t have to scan.) back in the late 90s/early 2000s, then switched to the one finger print which is extremely accurate… we tried a big switcheroo to test the accuracy and of course ended up looking like a bunch of idiots who couldn’t remember whose pass was whose. :laugh:[/QUOTE]
Yes!! Long time ago—about 20 years— the only year we had one. We knew we were going to be there twice during the 365 days so we went with the AP that one and only year. I don’t know exactly what year they switched to the finger recognition but it was about that time you are saying Victoria. :happy:
