Exclamation ATTN RECENT VISITORS : Disney Resort RFID Locks on Rooms

I searched and found a bunch of posts on this but nothing seemed to be 100% confirmed.

Can any one just back from a trip comment on whether or not your resort was using the RFID 'wave to unlock' room keys?

I read elsewhere on the internet they were installing them at the All Stars Resort on the week of November 28th ... of course they are in place at AoA ... and I think I read CBR had them as well.

Where else?

I had them at POFQ and AoA in October. Loved them.

My bag has a card pocket under the front flap, I just waved the front of my purse at the door and it opened.

In fact it hung on me crossbody really near the lock height and one night I just hipchecked the doorknob.

My room at Pop Century did not have an RFID lock. I had to open the door the old fashioned way - sliding the key card into the lock.

This was Dec. 5, 6 and 7, 2012.

My room at POR had the RFID lock. I stayed there over Veteran's weekend 2012.
