That's a totally different issue though - they are taking photos to help reduce the resale of tickets, since it's not against the law in California like it is in Florida. From what I understand, there are companies out there who buy the large multi day tickets and then rent them to people to use for a day or two. I remember back when they used to put guest photos on all the admission media here at WDW as well, and it wasn't a big deal. However, they weren't trying to play catch up like they are at DL.

The jury is still out as far as I am concerned with the new FP+. I like the idea of the AP being held in the cloud, so to speak, and the wristband just reading the cloud. The only issue I have is allergies and my wrists swelling in hot weather. So long as the band was expandable or removable, and didn't make my arm break out, I would wear it. But I'm allergic to so many thngs like that so I just have to wait and see.

I am here now, and I've seen a lot of confused and frustrated guests with the tap to purchase system. The CM's seem to be very relieved when I'm paying cash!

A cast member finally said to me, it is not your card but the readers, they just don't work well. Typical Disney, grand ideas but the system has problems.

Now they are adding the wristbands, which I will not wear but will have tucked away just as I do my room key which is easier to tuck away, and I have no doubt the readers will have also have problems reading the bands. I watched people enter at EPCOT using the touch readers and the cast members kept touching the cards because they were having problems with the readers not reading the room keys. If it is a flat plastic room card or a thick wrist band, the chip is the same and if the readers are having problems reading the chip it just doesn't matter what the guest uses, card or wristband.

My opinion on this subject: Disney tells us they are doing this to improve the guest experience: I don't buy it. It is a way Disney can gather information so they can learn how to market better to the guest or simple put how to improve sales. If they gather info in this manner they no longer will do the post stay surveys which means they can drop all of the people who work for Disney doing the surveys which saves Disney money. For business purposes, it makes sense.

This project is expensive, I watched the video posted in the thread. I still remember the wonderful new Stitch stage added to Tommorland. It was open what, 6 weeks or so and soon the stage show stopped. Who wants to stand in the blazing hot Florida sun and from what I read here on the DIS, the show was not that great. The only time I know the stage is used is for the extra night parties. That was a project that didn't work out.

Time will tell how all of this will play out. Maybe I will end up getting the RFID containers that block readers that travel companies sell so your RFID items are protected, not really but it is a thought. Kathy
Kathy, were you at AKL by any chance? We arrived onsite 1/1 and stayed at the Dolphin since I was booking two rooms and the WDW rates were ridiculous. I purchased our tickets at the IG (back entrance to EPCOT) that night so our girls could go straight to a park the next morning while hubby and I checked in at AKL. I had read about people having trouble having their tickets pulled off of their package so I was glad I didn't try. I had done online check and attached a CC. We were given our room keys and told the rooms were connecting and ready now. Off we went only to discover they each connected to the room on the other side. I called down and the room assigner sent us to two others that were also ready. She then switched our keys over before we could get our luggage out but the maid let us get it luckliy. Dragged everything to the other side of the hotel to discover that (1) the keys did not work for those rooms either and (2) one room has bunk beds and is not clean (hubby saw in when the maid went in). Down I go to have the keys fixed. Armed with new keys that opened the doors for two hours then stopped. New keys again, off to Mara. Oops, these say that we can't charge. New keys again. ARGH! Have never in all our stays had that many problems. Made me decide to not try to have the tickets attached to the cards.

So, I was a little bored, and I'm a geek, so I went ahead and figured out exactly how the Magic Bands work, and what information Disney can actually get from them.

The bands have 3 RFID chips. 2 of them are passive (this means that they are powered by surrounding radio bands, and one is active (uses the battery to power a transmitter).

Chip A - HF band, passive. This is the standard touch-to-pay RFID chip found in credit cards and the like. In practice you must be touching the transmitter for this RFID chip to charge and disperse the information. Information on this chip is an ID code. This Chip is the same as the magnetic strip on the back of your KTTW card, just newer technology. If someone wanted to buy a reader for this, they would have to touch it to your bracelet and hold it there while the chip charged up and gave up the data. At this point the best the thief could do is to print out a new chip, embed it in a similar looking card, and spend up to $50.

Chip B - UHF band, passive. This is the creepy tracking RFID chip. The max range on this is 15ft, and the benefits for this particular chip is that you can read a large number of them at the same time, they are generally used for asset tags. This is to replace turnstile counting and otherwise measures the flow of people in the park (Unfortunately I have no idea if the cards will have this too, so in the future you may not be able to opt out of being counted as an 'asset'.). Because the read distance is so great, it is highly unlikely that this has any personally identifying information on it due to the fact that any shmoe can go onto ebay and buy a reader for it.

The other thing this chip could do is like Pal Mickey used to, trigger offers in your 'My Disney Experience.' "Hey, it looks like you're wandering around Fantasyland, why not check out Mickey's Philharmagic? Here's a free Fast Pass+ so you can get in on the next show!"

Chip C - WiFi band, active. This is the little transmitter. It transmits up to 6ft, and likely provides opt-in personalized experiences (Cinderella says, "Hi Victoria, Happy Birthday!" for example). This particular chip is almost identical to the toll transponders you put in your car. Extremely likely that this is all encrypted data because it is personally identifiable (but in general, useless to a thief).


Thievery: Unlikely. It is far easier, cheaper, and more lucrative to install Credit Card skimmers. Thieves are not likely to zap your RFID chips and reprint them for use when they can instead take a Credit Card number and order a $2000 computer online without blinking.

Big Brother: Feels a little creepy. Well, what does Disney already have on me? My KTTW has park access, a number for biometrics, FP use, purchases, along with names, ages, address of my party. With the Magic Band they can also store the RFID check in points as I walk through the park, creepy, but what can they do with this information? Well, first of all, if I'm walking into a CS restaurant, I'm probably buying lunch and that will show up on my KTTW card, so that's not new information. What is new information is walking into a gift shop and not buying anything. So maybe they give you an incentive to buy something? A 10% discount if you go back today. It's 2pm and you haven't eaten lunch but are still in the park? Order now and your food will be ready for you at Pecos Bill.


Conclusions:
Really creepy to be an asset, realistically they already do track us, this gives them more accurate data. Offers and Personalized experiences are likely opt-in. I really hope Disney has a way to opt out of personalized tracking. And I better get a piece of paper at check-in that explains what they're using my information for!

Love this idea. So much easier wearing a band then carrying a card and more cards. My only question is what happens if it gets lost? Right now you can take a pic of your KTTW but can you do that with a band. I think it's great for kids to who want to carry their own cards. Parents won't have to worry about it getting lost as easily.

Great post!!!!

ETA: The Wi-Fi transmitter.... is it sending a signal to my smart phone so I can actually use it (only for My Disney Experience of course) rather than constantly getting "poor" signal strength?

No, it's not an access point. It stands alone and broadcasts unchanging information to someone with a receiver (likely a CM with a tablet)

Given that same dayers will have access to FP+, it appears that your planning needs only to change if you want it to.

I wouldn't get too stressed. Also, does anyone have an ipod touch? You can use that, or a kiosk.

It's tied to your profile that you can access online or via your phone. They likely will also be able to print it out for you.

Since the bracelet only contains a number that is tied to your guest profile, replacement of lost ones becomes super easy. They would pull up your profile and delete the old bracelet's number (or otherwise decouple it from your profile). Then they would merely enter the number of the replacement bracelet into your profile. It would be as simple as replacing a lost swipe key at a hotel.

You would not need a picture of it or otherwise need any ticket/reservation number because all of that data exists in your profile.

Sounds as though this will work the way the Disney cruise ships do...when you scan your card/bracelet at the gate, the CM will see your photo on a screen and know you are the person to whom that account is assigned. The cruise line doesn't use the fingerprint scanners.

I haven't read through this entire thread but I'm assuming having a bracelet doesn't necessarily mean you have to use FP+? I'd really hope so because I have no intention of using it. ever. I am annoyed at the bracelet idea in general. I don't wear a watch because I can't stand the feeling, I don't wear bangles or bracelets for the same reason.

Don't forget these!



I suggest hanging your Magic band from your lanyard, beltloop etc.
