Just did a google image search and found this picture. https://www.google.com/search?q=disn...scfqEgjyd-9kM: So it looks like the image we saw in OP's link was the underside of the bracelet and the top is just the Mickey head. And possible color options? That is, if this random picture I came across from an unknown/unreliable source (I didn't really look into it) is to believed for anything.

Edit: The picture I'm referring to is the one (currently) on the second row with the rainbow of bands.

But that pic is over a year old and is from the early design stage. It looks about right but I doubt they would have included all the FCC and everything else they have now.

See, this is what's so nice about this place: people to do the research for you! Had I noticed the August '11 date the first time around, I obviously wouldn't have bothered. Carry on.

D'oh. You're right. Battery-assisted passive, perhaps.

I do hope WDW is doing something to address security concerns. We may never know exact details.

The reason I posted the date was that mostly every concern posted on this thread besides the name issue was already discussed to death over a year ago.

Didn't this all get hashed out a year ago?
Have you ever be to an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbeans or Mexico? Those little cheap plastic bracelets sure are hard to remove!!!

~That's a very reliable source! They had all the Next Gen info before anyone else!

~Obviously, this isn't for everyone, which is why the bracelets will be optional for purchase, so there is no need to worry, you will be able to continue using the KTTW card.

~I cannot wait to buy these bracelets! They are just too cute and it looks like you just "snap" them on & off your wrist. I just love how you can customize the bracelets to your personal tastes! I will more than likely buy all the colors to coordinate with my outfits, lol.

I don't know if they are like that, but I sure hope not, is what I was trying to say.

This is the first time I heard they were optional to purchase. I would think maybe its just the personalized ones that cost extra.

But anyway even if you can still use a KTTW card it will still have to be RFID just a different form.

What's wrong with the current system?

And which system?
  • door locks
  • FP
  • Photo Pass
  • room charging
  • personalized experiences
  • tracking your every move (which they do now to some extent)

Thank you, that just seemed like a random statement for that person to make.

I don't see this as a correction to the current system, but a tweek. "Keep moving forward", that was the motto of some guy I read about once. Time machines 1-327 were failures, as were experiments 1-625, but around here, we don't stand still too long, we keep moving forward.

That's what this is, just continuing Walt's vision. Nothing wrong with it.

Beside, let's see the hands from all the people who have a computer that runs Windows Vista, everyone beta tests (which is why you should beware Windows 8).
