Annual Pass ticket to RFID card conversion to begin next week



Great news for us Walt Disney World Annual Passholders!

Starting March 20, 2013, new and renewed Annual Passes will be issued new RFID cards. Also, from March 20 - May 19, 2013, existing Annual Passholders can visit the Odyssey Center at Epcot to convert their existing ticket to an RFID card. Bring along your AP and photo ID. Conversion of the ticket to RFID card is not required. Water Park or DisneyQuest annual passes cannot be converted at the Odyssey and must be done at the respective park.

The new RFID cards will allow the use of 'Touch to Enter' at the turnstiles, and will allow continued use of the existing FASTPASS machines. The new cards are also a thicker credit card type material in place of the existing thin ticket media.  

No word yet on when the MagicBands will be available for Annual Passholders.


Thanks to Krista Joy over at DisneyWays.com for bringing this to my attention! Make sure to check out her GREAT blog!
