There was a generic picture floating around earlier this year of what the bracelets are going to/said to look like.

It appeared that the wristband portion was stretchy - kind of like one of those Livestrong bracelets and could come off and on easily.

ETA: Found one of the ones... http://dizfanatic.com/DizTech012-Dis...stband_FCC.jpg

That does not show the wristband.

I am all for the wristbands! It would be easier than keeping up with a KTTW card. One less thing in a pocket/bag!

And since I have APs I won't have tickets on a wristband. I'd like to see the design. Would have to be adjustable.
It's been said the APs will also be accessible from the wristband. It taps into your account with Disney, and your account knows you have an AP.

The idea is that we will be doing EVERYTHING from the wristband. Park admission, room keys, charging back to the room account, checking into restaurants for ADRs, getting fastpasses.

Wow, that is sooner than I expected! I didn't dare hope to get to see some bits and piece of next gen on my next trip but with that timeframe it is practically a sure thing.

I'm going in Feb and April too....please let this techy girlie's dream come true...

But if not, at least give me hope that one code can control all cards...I like to give my teenager her own spending limit with the charge priviledges on her card, and since right now, I have an AP, I need her card to charge with...

Yes, I just said 'one of the pictures' and I didn't have time to look for the wristband picture.

Thought it would be nice to post something to show what they might look like

ETA: Found this, but it's not the original picture I saw. These look more like watch bands or those snap bracelets even.

ETA x2: This is the pic I originally saw, but it has no Disney logos. Might have just been an example photo show what other RFID bands typically look like. http://www.rfidworld.ca/wp-content/u...h-Children.jpg

Thanks for the pic. I really like the look of the first ones. They don't look too bad. I might actually like wearing one. When we go on our family trip in Dec 13 will all of the kids have one for their tickets? My girls will be thrilled if that is the case. Now my FX kids definitely will have nothing to do with it. That's ok I will just keep theirs in our bag.

"By the end of January all resorts are expected to be live on the program with touch-to-pay capabilities on all room key cards with charging privileges."

If you don't want this, just don't have charging privileges. Or, I'm sure you can opt out of it. I have never known Disney World to force anyone to do anything (except bag checks ). No way in hell my husband is wearing that. Why doesn't everyone just calm down until, oh, I don't know, the entire thing is actually done?

I honestly don't know. I haven't been putting much thought into it. I'll just wait until it's done and see.

I'd imagine it'd be something along the lines of everyone getting on in the same fashion that kids get tickets now... maybe kids just won't have charge privileges or something.

I will do backflips of joy if the bracelets are good to go by the time my vacation rolls around. I doubt it will but I can wish right? Last trip I was forever misplacing my kttw. If its around my wrist I doubt even I can manage to lose that.

Just wanted to point out that "wristbands" don't necessarily need to be on your wrist. If they aren't comfortable for you, just put them on your belt/backpack/etc.

I'm thinking that there will be other methods available for paying for food and souvenirs in the parks and resorts. They have thousands of non-resort guests to deal with and those people won't have a wristband thing.

Unless they set it up where everyone has an "account" which they are either billed for or pay when they are ready to leave. Even non-resort guests can use it then.

Thanks they look adjustable so I am sure those with allergies like myself or those that just do not want to wear it can simply attach it to a bag or carry it in their pocket.

Thanks for those photos.

I like the bottom ones the best, guess they stretch on and off.
