Epcot F&G - wristbands?
 
Does anyone know if this year's F&G fest will offer the mini gift cards on a wristband like F&W does? My Googling didn't turn anything up.

Nobody has said they are. and I know of several persons, a number of which are involved with Disney-related websites or blogs, who are there right now, and none of them have reported any such thing.

There is a specially designed Flower & Garden gift card that I have seen photos of -but it is not on a wristband, it's a regular sized gift card.

Thanks. I think I might still have mine from F&W somewhere so I'll try to dig it up. Figured it would be nice to have for walking around the booths. I'm going on Saturday, so if they do happen to be offered but not yet reported I'll be sure to let everyone know :)

From the Disney park blog they show what looks like a wristband card.

Wristbands
 
I would think with the move to the new RFID system that the wristbands would be kept for those staying in resort properties

Not if it's a gift card, and the link does indeed display a wristbanded gift card.

The Magic Bands they are talking about implementing are an entirely different thing from using a gift card.

When it all comes together, those using Magic Bands will probably not need to also carry a gift card unless that is what they really want to do.

Now I don't have to look for my F & W wrist gift card
 
I am so glad someone asked this and that Disney is offering this. Now I don't have to try to find my old F & W one!

It looks like they are offering a mini wrist card! They're selling them only at Epcot during the Flower & Garden Festival. http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...rden-festival/

I desperately want some of these for our trip next year!! Anyone wanna buy 4 of them for me? ;)

They are definitely marketing them at the parks..... When we went on Friday the festival stores had walls of them hanging, and there were samples of them attached to every umbrella of each country's booth!

Yes they are!
 
I just saw them last week!!!

I've never used these before. Do you have to buy the gift card, and then load money onto it, or is it free and you load money onto it?

We go to Food & Wine and get these wristbands which make everything so easy. Just load it up and keep re-loading! We are attending the Flower and Garden Festival in May and can't wait to get this new wristlet and sample all the goodies at the different kiosks(Dole Whip w/Rum!). It's turning into a mini-Food&Wine Festival. LOVE IT. :thumbsup2

It's one of the very few things that's free! Well except for the money you out into it :-p. Mu husband and I put $50 on it, shared what I wanted to try, and had some left over for the next time :-D

You have to put at least $5 on it when you "buy" it. That's the only "charge" associated with it.
