This is part of the Disney's billion dollar NextGen project that they started a year ago. As reported tests are currently underway on the Fast Pass changes and the new resort room door locks are currently being installed.

Soft drink dispensers were also tested last year.

How would this work for the no expiration tickets? We buy 10 day non expiration tickets and use them over 3 years.

Then you'll have to wear that wristband for those 3 years without taking it off

Other reports have suggested the band as one option. The RFID tag in the wristband is the main part. They now have RFID tags in KTTWs. And Disney has to have other options, some people are allergic to plastic.

We do the same thing. I also wouldn't want to wear a wristband for a week. I hate wearing it for the day at SAB.

Would all guests need to get their own FP? I usually am the runner that gets them for our family. I would imagine it would cause longer lines for FP.

Why do people put there admission ticket on their room key???

This idea will catch on like wildfire because it's convenient and has a cool factor.

There's the possibility of being able to get the color of your choice or even cool designs and characters. Kids and some adults would eat that up.

No need to pull out you ticket to get a FP, just tap your band. No need to pull out your KTTW every time you want to get on a ride during EMH.

Being able to wave your band to open doors, update your high scores, enter Fast Pass lines, charge your bill to your room, I see it catching on with most guests.

I am sure that Disney will still offer a card for those who don't want a bracelet but as posted above, younger guests will display their bands proudly.

We stayed at a resort last year that used RFID bracelets. They were some type of paper material, but waterproof. They were very light weight and we didn't really even notice we had them on. They worked as our room key, water park entry, arcade credits, and charge card for restaurants and shops.

We were a little nervous about it because we don't even link a credit card to our KTTW card at Disney, we just prefer to pay cash and know exactly where we stand with our budget. We were only there for 1 night, but the bracelet worked out great. It was really nice to be able to leave the room and know that's all we needed with us, and we didn't have to worry about carrying a room key, ID, money, etc.
