    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?

    Polynesian has them. It's a tap and not a wave. They also had them at the guard shack to get in with your car. We also used the "tap" for purchases.

    We had them at SSR. I didn' think twice about them UNTIL it wouldn't unlock the door when we got back to the room after being out at parks all day. I saw Mouskeeping and she called the desk to have maintenance come and unlock it. They took almost 45 minutes to arrive. The battery in the lockset had died. I thought these were fairly new so I was surprised that the battery had died.

    All worked out though!

    Kidani and VWL have them...and oh the problems they were having at VWL. First we couldn't get in our room...got new key, next night we couldn't get in the building...got a new key, next night we couldn't get in the building, or our room...got a new key...problem solved. It wasn't just us, there were always few people standing by the door having problems getting in. Once they were working it was great.
