Room Key - tickets

I am not sure if this is the right place, but hoping someone can help me. We are checking into POR for 2 nights with a 10 day park ticket. We are switching hotels a few times. What happens with our park tickets? Do they move it from room key to room key or does our first room key work for the park ticket the whole trip?

Since you're switching resorts a couple of times it might be easier just to have the resort you booked with tickets give you a paper ticket instead of attaching it to your room key. This way when you switch resorts you don't need to have to worry about having it moved from one room key to another.

I hate the paper tickets

Sorry, no. Once you check out of a resort, any KTTW cards attached to that resort's reservation become inactive, for everything. You'd need to stick with paper tickets or try to have them attached to your new resort's KTTW cards.

I agree with a previous poster: I think it'd be easier in the case of multiple resort switches to go with paper tickets, rather than going to the concierge desk at each resort to do the encoding. It's not bad once in the beginning of a trip, but I think would get old by the second time in one trip.

I doubt it's very likely that you'll end up with paper tickets anymore. All the RFID enabled tickets are plastic. I was surprised when the CM who "activated" our Armed Forces Salute tickets, put them on different media rather than having us keep the originals.
It was nice that we could use both forms of turnstiles.

I suppose it's possible that the resort CMs may still have paper/tyvek tickets to give out, but I doubt it.

As per the other issue...from my understanding, any tickets will remain active for as long as they are intended. I think I've read accounts from people who have used the same "room key" for park entry over the course of many no expiry trips. I assume that they've made the new plastic tickets more durable than they have been in the past (because the paper was actually more durable) but there are also rumors going around of discontinuing the no expiry option anyways so it may become less relevant.

We recently did a split stay and at check in for the second resort we asked the cm to transfer the tix to our new room key. The only issue we had was that we kept getting an error trying to go through the RFID entries once the tix were transferred. They had cms there with tablets to help though. No problems going through the International Gateway though, which didn't have RFID yet. I haven't read about this problem elsewhere so maybe just our bad luck!
