When you go for some extra magic hours at Disney parks, they ask for a valid park admission and something called a "resort ID". What on earth is a "Resort ID"? Never heard of that before. Thanks
it used to be your room key - but now it would either be your room key or your magic band.
It is used to show that you are staying in a Disney hotel
Thanks everyone. It probably is the magic band. Disney uses that term, Resort ID, a lot as if it is something extra and unique without really saying what "it' is. Probably a marketing way of deterring ineligible guests. Buried in the FAQ's on the link chann856 provided, it says that you need a park ticket and "a Disney Resort hotel Magic Band." So I'm guessing the info I need is embedded in the magic band. It does unlock the resort room door after all. We'll just chill and find out for sure when we check in I guess.
I think beyond just "Magic Band" it would be a "Magic Band affiliated with a Disney Resort active reservation" - basically some form of identification that indicates you are staying at a DIS resort and thus eligible for the EMH perk. I presume they now scan your Magic Band to tell them that while in the past you would show a room key, although I don't remember if they swiped it to validate it or not...
Just heard back from Disney on this. Sent them an email asking the same question. As it turns out, a "resort ID' is your Resort Reservation number.
You do not carry around your reservation number? If they scan your MB it would show you are a resort guest, that is how they confirm you can be in the line.
Uhm, no. But my wife thinks we go there so much now, I'm thinking of getting about getting it tattooed.
