The look of the armband is not what concerns me.

Where are you seeing a picture of it?

motherof2boys 10-05-2012 08:31 PM

Sorry I clicked the wrong link! Saw it, but I really don't get it...so your entire party needs to be together to somehow scan it for Fast passes or is it just your Ticket?

Buffalo2Disney 10-05-2012 08:34 PM

I believe one person could just collect everyone's wrist band and scan them at a fastpass machine ... much like people do now with everyone's tickets in their party. That is of course if they keep the ticket fastpass machines. The article says the wristband can be used for ticketless Fastpass, i.e. Fastpass+

Ditto.

Wonder if our AP's will be transferred to arm bands or if we won't get FP privileges anymore.

Anybody else notice they are assembled in China? So much for made in the USA

When these were first rumored, what a year ago, it was figured that "regular ticket stock" would also be RFID chipped. Like they did for the trial at Epcot.

This wrist band replaces the KTTW card.

Oh good lord. Not another NickHotel gig.

In my opinion, the wristband thing is just annoying. Hopefully, they'll be removable so you can take it off and put it back on.

Yes I am assuming that they will be removable. I doubt its going to be like a ankle monitor.

Didn't this all get hashed out a year ago?

~Yay!!! I totally agree, this is so exciting! I knew the bracelets were going to be called "Magic Bands". It was a DISer who revealed that info several months back. It's all coming together now! And the RFID bracelets look fabulous! :goodvibes

Terrible idea. I don't want to walk around for week with a bracelet on.

And what happened to the "going green" initiative that eliminated the EMH wristband because they were adding to landfills. I'm no tree-hugger, but I'm saying a electronic, battery powered polyurethane wristband, worn by 10's of thousands of people everyday is a little more polluting then few paper strips.

am I the only one not excited about wearing a plasticy bracelet in the Florida heat and humidity! :crazy2: Yucky, sweaty, rubbery, blah!
