    Currently staying at the Dolphin and was handed regular paper ticket for 2 day park hopper. Wonder if this can be exchanged for RFID at the park or if there is any advantage in doing so...

    1- Yes.

    At Guest Relations at AK, MK, or Epcot, it can be switched over to the RFID media (Plastic card.)

    (Since you are at Dolphin, I don't know if they can do it yet at the International Gageway.
    If you try to do it there, please post back with the info.)

    At least as of earlier this week, it could not yet be done at DHS or DTD, but that will soon be remedied.

    2- You can enter via the newer RFID park "gate-less" gates, and charge via the RFID system.

    Thank you. I assume the advantages have been discussed ad nauseum elsewhere but I really haven't been keeping up.

    Does the ability to swtich tickets to the RFID only apply for tickets from Dolphin or other disney approved resorts? What about if you buy your tickets from some place like undercovertourist?

    I was able to switch- they did scan my ticket after saying they "will see" if I can change to the RFID card, so there may be some restrictions.

    Do we know yet whether this (switching to RFID) will be available for NE tickets?

    All tickets except Annual Passes (and I THINK the Florida Res Discovery Disney ticket but I could be wrong about that) can be converted to the RFID media... In fact, if you come in to guest relations with a simple ticket question, they're supposed to switch your tickets over even if that's not what you came in for. This is for all day guests -- not restricted to just Disney resort guests.

    And it is now at all the parks and DTD as of yesterday.

    We are getting ready to book a package at a Disney hotel with tickets for a stay in May. Will we be able to get the new tickets?
