Disney World to replace Paper Tickets

Hey there guys and gals your friendly neighborhood Disney Gossip Columnist @Anonymouse here. After the Huge Gossip from last week about Fast Passes, it seems more changes are under way at Walt Disney World.

This week, the Gossip on the street is Disney is looking to remove all paper tickets from the parks. How can they do that you ask? Disney is encouraging guests to convert previous paper tickets to RF-enabled cards. If you remember earlier Disney upgraded Annual Passes to RFID enable cards.

The exact reason for the upgrade is unknown but I bet it has to do with the new touch points (see above). Those nifty little RFID turn styles at the Disney Parks are pretty cool but not as cool as the hand held devices you see the Cast Members holding.

As soon as this becomes Official News guests who have the old paper tickets can go to any Vacation Planning Ticket Booth and be upgraded to RF-enabled tickets just like they did with the annual passes, for free.

I did this earlier this year with my AP and it took just a few minutes. The cast member was very friendly an answered my many questions.

So next time you are at Disney World or if you ordered your tickets from an online ticket provide like Undercover Tourists just take your ticket to the Ticket Booth and get you a new one.

Any who, that is all the Disney Gossip I have right now. For my past Gossip articles be sure to check them out here.

  1. Just returned home last night from Disney World, I hope they figure out how to make the new system work. Every day at least one if not all of our party of four had trouble with the new readers. I also think it’s kind of intrusive of Disney to ‘need’ our fingerprint. It is only a theme park after all, not the White house.

  2. Hi,
    I have old park hoppers that only have the plus features (water parks, disneyquest etc.) still on it. Will I have to convert them to rf tickets or can I put them on the magic band I should be getting?I have a trip planned for Jan. 2014 and Aug. 2014 and we are getting annual passes. Thanks for any info.
