By the way, Starbucks is now showing up when you go to the App Store from Passbook, but if you hit Open, it takes you to the Starbucks app, not Passbook, and there doesn't appear to be any way to turn it on.


I guess I must not be I was there about a month ago and stayed at paradise pier, but they didn't mention an app or anything. The key had all our info on it, but they only asked to see it for magic morning hours, but never swiped it or anything. Do you have links to any of there future plans im curious to read more about it?

They're currently testing the system at Walt Disney World. They just finished updating several of the hotels to use RFID door locks (just tap your room key to enter), and they have readers installed at attractions like Haunted Mansion.

 

Here's one blog talking about it, but this one is pretty old. http://blog.touringplans.com/2012/05/02/limited-x-pass-testing-at-walt-disney-world-this-week/ They've made quite a bit of progress since. Eventually, you can book your vacation online, and actually pick times to ride popular attractions, basically getting your FastPasses before you even get to the resort. Pretty slick stuff.

Sorry for the thread-jacking. Carry on. ;)

They probably don't, too many mouths to talk if they lined up a lot of companies at once.

You must not be an avid roller coaster rider if you haven't procured a pair of pants/shorts with a zipper pocket for valuables.  I would never ever go coastering without securable pockets!
