Radio Frequency ID payment terminals are now in operation throughout Disney's Contemporary Resort.  

Each register is equipped with a Mickey head logo RFID reader, along with a regular magnetic card swipe reader.  Once the NextGen roll out begins later this year, guests will be able to simply touch their RFID resort ID to the reader for automatic charging to their room.  Guests paying by other means swipe their card through the reader.

The Contemporary Resort currently has these readers installed at Contempo Cafe and the gift shops.  It is expected that these readers will be installed at every register on property.  Head to the photo below for a closeup look.
