The virtual non-event involved a Disney Store cast member asking to see the purchaser’s identification, noting the request was being made only because the card wasn’t signed. Providing the reason for the request, according to the article (which then goes on to discuss the psychology of trust), made all the difference in the world. Point: Disney Store.
