This looks really cool. I think disney is actually making a good step here with this. This will obviously make a ton of money for disney and I think accessories will be greatly expanded over the next year.

disney lover at heart

Keeping my fingers crossed for when we are there in Sept. I don't think we will have a chance when we are there in 2 weeks. But I can dream....

I love the idea of the covers as the cloth "should" make the bands less sticky to the skin. I only wish they had some covers that were coordinated with the bandits, such as a cover of brooms to go with the sorcerer bandits.

I think these look really cool!! We're not going back to Disney until Dec 2014 so I do hope they get the kinks worked out and have them available then!!

I think being able to buy things to personalize your band is adorable and I hope I get to use one in my sept or nov trips!

Fingers crossed! Ill look out for these when I go in Nov. Really cool idea. Im nervous that Ill lose my pass, so this would make me feel more relaxed, and much easier to just tap and go.

Be cool if they linked them to a credit card like Key to the World, so you can use it to pay for purchases (or is this a feature too?), and even as your room key if staying at a resort.

Ways to decorate your magicband? Anything for a buck, I guess.

I saw a web video about it from Disney. It will be linked to credit card. You will have the ability to turn bracelet charging capability on or off on certain bands/limit amount able on kids bands. Over a certain amount you will need to enter a pin code to prevent theft. The video was dated 5/29/13 or so.
