« back to FASTPASS
In your answer regarding fastpass+ vs.kiosk tickets, you mention asking for RFID enabled park tickets to access the kiosk fastpasses in addition to our 3 fastpass+ selections. What does RDIF mean? The plastic credit card type tickets?

It's nice to hear back from you and thank you for sending in another question. Yes, the RFID cards I previously referred to are the plastic cards issued at check-in, known as Key to the World cards.
Since you last submitted a question, I'm hearing of more and more guests unable to use their KTTW card in legacy FastPass machines. I understand guests can request the KTTW card as a back up to be sure they have entry to their guest room, but guests are reporting the magnetic strip is disabled for FastPass kiosks. This may be in response to so many guests "doubling up" on both FastPass+ selections and Fastpass paper versions. I can only offer my assumptions as we haven't heard any official word of when FastPass+ will be officially rolled out to all guests.
With this information in mind, I'd suggest planning on only using FastPass+ for your upcoming vacation. I utilized my MagicBand exclusively on a recent trip and booked FastPass+ attractions for later slots in the day/evening. I then hit my other favorite attractions early in the morning by using the stand-by lines. I found this plan to work well for our itinerary.
I hope my answer was helpful, Carol, and thank you for your patience as we all learn the new system! Disney continues to test the various elements and with those trials comes changes to the way we typically tour the Parks. Please feel free to write me back as your trip approaches to learn of any new updates.
