Starting today, Disney is removing the custom POS TouchPoint devices at all retail, front desk, and food & beverage locations and replacing them with industry standard devices.
The first of these devices were installed recently at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. It’s the PX7 Retail Multilane Terminal.
The company who designed the custom POS machines with touchpoints currently all over WDW is apparently no longer in business, and it was costing Disney a lot to maintain the existing devices.
The new POS devices still work with MagicBands (utilizing the flat reading area pictured above), other RFID payment methods, and also have the chip readers for credit cards, which is now an industry standard.
The Mickey Mouse shaped touch points that are a hallmark of MyMagic+ may be added to these new readers in the future.
So, what do you think of this change?
