Thanks
In addition the Disney Parks blog post, there was also a story in the New York Times about the new system.http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/07/bu...anted=all&_r=0

examples, he said you can opt out regular FP not going away at this point
he said this would be incorporated over the next year
he said personal info NOT stored in magicband so to even suggest if your kid gets lost CMs can scan his/her band & find out anything last seen at who parents are is ridiculous
Its not like a microchip in my dogs neck that if he takes off Animal Control can scan
he never even hinted at EMH ending as a PP stated

so FWIW I love the Dis obviously I've been here awhile its a great source of info BUT when it comes to major changes I will go to the source for the facts doesn't that make more sense ?

thanks again for the link Tammie

•Availability of a FastPass+ experience, the number of experiences you may select and arrival windows are limited and vary based on factors such as the theme park you are visiting, the attraction or entertainment experience, the time of year and the day of the week, and prior demand. In addition, the number of days for which you can hold FastPass+ selections at any given time is limited.

I'm wondering about this.....so we can book 60 days out but only hold selections for say 3 or 5 days then those with a 10 day ticket will only have say 5 days selection time for the other 5 days on their ticket-disadvantaging those staying longer boo

I just wish Disney made a full announcment with all the FAQs avalible instead of this leaving people wondering, full of questions and a little stressed about how it will be affecting this years trips....just tell people when it is launching, and how it works already!

I do agree that there is a lot of speculation going on. But Tom Staggs' job in that announcement was to stir up excitement. If potential negatives are coming down the road with this, I wouldn't expect him to fess up at this point.

Most rides will have the scanner at the entrance anway.

It should actually help them clear the parks of nonresort guests at late EMH.

What about guests at, for example, Shades of Green? They get the EMH benefit, but from the sounds of it I doubt they'd get the magicbands as Disney Resort guests would (just as we don't get KTTW cards now).

Everything about those terms and conditions quoted above are interesting to me. Day of the week, time of the year, and park you choose. So does this mean, if the park calendar says Epcot is going to be the low park for the day - Disney can offer more FP+ to get people in that park. And this could be done day by day. I see a lot of potential here for getting people to the park Disney wants us to go to.

The microchip in your dog does not work the way you seem to think it does. It merely has a number it transmits - the information related to that number identifying your pet is in a large database that shelters, vets, etc.. access.

It's exactly the same way Disney's system will work.

yes I agree with you..but guessing, at how its all going to turn out is silly waste of time & causing needless stress for alot of people with the 'What ifs' IMHO I think he said over the next year because it hasn't been figured out yet on Disneys end

I have a headache but am taking a wait & see attitudeI have bigger things to worry about

Stop - Speculation Time! *hammer dance*

Seriously, no more speculation:

Info dump direct from Disney, watch the video in the article:

http://blogs.computerworld.com/priva...fid-wristbands

3 per day, Resort guests not given additional or priority. Ability to give more as the crowds/day dictates, but 3 is the norm. "We believe this should be a benefit to everyone, so everyone will have the same access" - info from Executive VP on the project, speaking directly to camera/reporter. "In Wide Use This Spring."

I was using thr microchip example because the poster thought if the kid gets lost CMs could scan it & reunite them I know how microchips work have a horse & 7 dogs that have them the database has my info according to Mr Staggs personal info NOT stored so I don't see how its the same anyway we can speculate on everything & it won't change a thing
I only answered you because you were nice enougj to answer me earlier

I am now going back to wait & see what Disney Blog keeps updating

In the press release Staggs said that AP holders and those who purchase "photo packages" will get MM+ bands, right? As an AP voucher holder (which I cannot at this time add to MyDisneyExperience online unless I'm missing something), is it possible then that I could purchase a Photopass package (which I intended to do anyway) and have access to FP+ at the 60 day mark?

Or will there be a way to enter vouchers in the future, thus allowing my to take advantage w/ my AP?

We plan on spending 2 weeks in a TS before spending 6 days onsite w/ DVC points.

You're welcome. It is getting hard to sort out the rumors from the facts at this point. I think there are some here who have a little insider information, or maybe insider rumors. Also, it seems like there are a few "at this point" type statements that lead us to read between the lines. As you said, there are alot of unanswered questions at this time, but it has brought up alot of heated discussions!
