animatronic-handIn the old Odyssey restaurant at EPCOT there is currently a temporary annual passholder lounge where they’re converting paper tickets to the new RFID enabled plastic tickets. In the lobby is a fun collection of objects from the history of the resort. One of them is a functioning animatronic hand. It’s wonderful to watch, but to anyone who has seen the original Terminator movie it appears more than a little creepy.

I’ve been there twice now, but still haven’t converted my AP to plastic. No one has yet convinced me that there is any benefit to switching until the parks have switched on My Mobile Magic+ for everyone. If My Magic+ is turned on for some they’ll have access to that network, but will be limited in the number of Fastpass+ experiences they can have each day. Paper ticket holders will be limited to the old Fastpass system, but will have unlimited use of it.

I see no harm in keeping the paper ticket until the point where they make everyone switch. However, I’m open to arguments as to why I’m wrong.
