RFID - Radio Frequency Cards and Other Devices Terms & Conditions

These are new Excerpts from "Disney Park Experience Terms and Conditions" are you ready to step into a whole new Disney Parks experience?

Radio Frequency Cards and Other Devices

When you purchase certain Park Experience benefits, you may receive a radio frequency technology-enabled card or other device ("RF Device"). Your RF Device can be used to enter the Parks, access your room if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and make purchases at select Parks and Resorts locations. Your RF Device also can be used to redeem Disney FastPass+ selections. Your RF Device is unique to you and the benefits you have purchased. You are responsible for keeping your RF Card safe and secure.

  • In order to deliver the seamless and personalized experience of the Park Experience, we utilize radio frequency technology-enabled cards or other devices ("RF Devices"). Depending on the Experience benefits you have purchased, you and each member of your Experience Party will be issued a unique RF Device (similar to a Key to the World card), which allows us to identify the individual using the RF Device and the benefits associated with that individual.
  • Your RF Device is the key to unlocking your Resort experience, providing you entry to the parks and guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels access to their room. They will also be used to redeem your Disney FastPass+ selections. In addition, as described in the "Online Check-in Service" section of these Experience Terms, guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels will have the option to use their RF Device to make purchases at various dining, retail and other select locations throughout the Resort.
  • The RF Devices use technology similar to the radio and computer technology in smart phones, video game controllers, credit cards and "easy pass" toll payment systems. Many of the features enabled by your RF Device will be accessed by "touching" your RF Device to touch points located throughout our Resorts. (For security purposes, you may also be required to provide additional authentication information to enable certain functions, such as a biometric read or PIN.) Other features are triggered automatically when readers located throughout the Resort recognize your RF Device when you are within the vicinity of the readers.
  • If you have a medical device and have questions about your medical device and RF technology, we encourage you to seek the guidance of the manufacturer of your device and your physician.
  • RF Devices are not transferable. We are not responsible for any unauthorized use of RF Devices. If your RF Device is lost or stolen, contact Guest Services at 407-WDISNEY (407-934-7639).

I love how they say they aren't responsible for unauthorized usage. They're going to make everyone use technology that is simple to intercept, but wash their hands of any potential consequences. I don't see any plans to add a pin to the cards, and without that, if you drop your card, someone could have a great shopping trip on your dime. I guess for future trips I will NOT be tying my credit card to the room key - good old cash or a non-RFID visa card will be the way to go.

From what I understand, how they are in use right now is that a pin is taken care of at Check-in.

However, you only need to use it for purchases over $50. A thief could make a lot of $50 purchases before the card was shut off.
