Online Check In/RFID Bands

Just paid our trip in full for May and I see now that the online check in window as been moved from 10 to 30 days... Really anxious to do online check in but worry if I do it so early we may miss out on an opportunity to get the new RFID bands...

I know this hasnt begun yet for all resorts/guests but really hoping that in May we get a chance to test it out...What do you think? Should we wait until closer to May to do online check in? Has anyone else been able to select whether they want the new wristband when checking in online?

You can actually do online check-in 60 days prior to your arrival.

Whether or not you do online check-in has zero affect on whether you will get the new RFID bracelets. If the resort you're staying at has them, you will have the option to get them.

Are there benefits to checking in online?

Please explain what the wristbands are.

Dunno where the 30 and 60 day online check-in comes from.... I've just checked my resort reservation with 30 days to go and it has this banner across the top

Reminders

On April 05, 2013, in 20 day(s), you can save time, skip the line and check in online.

Nevermind, I see now that you're in the UK. You guys are still getting the older style site...

I'm jealous. I hate the new site.

The pictures I've seen show them as adjustable and removable. Like a soft rubber watch band.

I prefer the kttw cards. Those bracelets are ugly and I feel easier to lose :-(
