I think this will be super neat!!

I know that sometimes tradition is nice, but they aren't changing the whole ride, just the room with a few signs in it, so for me this is good combining of the old and new!

1) I do.
2) Disney is putting readers in all the rides, and other locations.
3) They can now track your activities every day, every where.
4) The benefits to Disney are
. . . they can send you marketing ads for your interests
. . . they can tailor vacation ads to your ride preferences
. . . they can send you ads for merchandise based upon your rides

5) Big Brother is finally here!
6) You didn't think Disney invested $1-Billion for YOUR benefit, did you?

Thought the same thing with Uni's ET ride. We've always heard our names and when the kids were little, they loved hearing their names. Now we thin it's kitschy but still fun. At least they did without a tracking bracelet.

Except Big Brother has been around for a while. He's just getting to WDW in a big way.

If you're not "wearing" the band and it's in your bag ect, will they still be able to read where you are?

1) Yes.
2) RFID chips can be read from inside bags/pockets.
3) And, with some distance.
4) If not, how could the ride "see you" from inside the boat?

That's going to be really cool. I also think it's a good combination of old and new.

I knew something was up! I rode it on Monday with my family, and got to the 'goodbye' scene and was surprised it was covered! But that sounds cool what they will do with it!

IF it works. And IF it works consistently. If it doesn't, then you'll have a minute or so of riding through a black tunnel...towards a bright light....

Is anyone just a smidge disappointed that Disney's fancy new addition to IASW is technology that Universal has used at ET for the past 20+ years?
