Have all the resort doors been upgraded to allow magic bands?

Or is it only deluxe resorts?

And do the doors now allow both bands and keycards?

All the doors have been updated with RFID readers. It's pretty slick...you just touch your card and/or Magic Band to open. You don't have to slide a card through a slot anymore. Any RFID media will work, whether that be cards, bands, or whatever gaget they think of to market next.

Next step is inserting the chip in each person's body.

Might as well. All the smaller kids want to climb all over the touch-points like they are a jungle gym. Climb and activate ticket at the same time.

The technology is the same for KTTW and Magicbands with the RFID chips. All resorts were completed a few weeks ago.
