I doubt the bill is causing a delay. As it is currently written, the bill's effective date is 10/1/2013. Disney is unlikely to wait that long, unless it continues to cross computers.

Here is the webpage for the bill http://myfloridahouse.org/Sections/B...x?BillId=50731

Oh, and thanks for finally talking about something I could understand.

It's interesting that on the theme park board, Cheshire Figment (who is the grand pooh-bah of all things ticketing, IMHO) said yesterday that he believes RFID will be gone in less than three years with Disney admitting it made a HUGE mistake.

CF is a traditionalist.

Besides, in three years Disney will have perfected its facial recognition software. . . . and its website will work perfectly.

I think some of it is frustration - CF has to deal with it at the front lines, who are often the last to know about the new stuff they have to deal with

Yeah, that's true. It seems from the reports that many, many people with the new RFID APs are spending way too many hours with broken passes.

RFID and NFC are the future. Not only for Disney, but society in general. It will not last forever, but it will be around for a long time.
