More Disney merchandise for people to buy like designer wristbands, character wristbands etc.

Still, it's a great idea not to have to carry a wallet on park LOL

Hubby has large wrists and hands, it's difficult for him to find a usable watchband. He's not going to wear a rubber band on his arm, I can tell you that!

LOL, where do you come up with stuff like this? (Also loved the cat earlier).

Do you just google "tan line" or something?

Oh, you reminded me of one point I forgot. How disposable are the bands. Because the band has an inaccessable battery, people are assuming these are use once then trash bands. The thing is, it is a lot like the toll transponders in the cars. Now I've had those for a long time, since they came out in MA in around 2000. I've had to replace it only twice (and the last time I replaced it was probably 8 years ago)! So the designer bands should work for multiple trips, though it's impossible to know how long.

Although I am sure they won't advertise that little gem too much since they will want people to buy new customized ones EVERY trip

Question How will this work if a CM gets you in??

We have a relative that is a CM, and they get us in the parks, as that is a perk of being a CM. How will this writsband thing affect that? Any CMs out there that can weigh in on how this will be a plus or minus for my family????

I am sure my pre-teen daughter will have the same thoughts if she has to wear one in August. LOL "but mom, tan lines" (insert eye-roll)

I like cards because I pass them out at the gate then collect them back as we go through. DH and I will run ahead for FPs so it's great to have them all together. Granted with FP+ we won't need to do this, we'll only need to go on the APP and make our plans and GO.

I always have to see something in real life to "get it". Hopefully optimistic.

I have a feeling my kids would very easily loose something like this. We have tiny wrists in this family, and I'm feeling like my 5 year old would play with this if it were constantly on her. Which means I would be wearing more than one bracelet, which doesn't sound great to me.

I am a travel agent. After reading this thread, I logged onto my TA booking site for Disney. It still gives me the option of adding the no expiration option. It all looks the same on my end. After looking at the main consumer site, it does not give this option. I will have to look into this further to see if it will be going away in the future. I know many folks like to purchase tickets on their own, but if only Travel Agents can order the no expiration option and this it is important to you, you should look into purchasing from a TA.

As of right now, I can book no expiration option. If they don't phase it out and recommend you adding it while at the parks, they may not take that option away from Travel Agents. If anyone needs tickets with the no expiration option, message me and I will be glad to hook you up and have them mailed directly to you. I personally LOVE to no expiration option for my family. We get 6 or 7 hopper days with water park and more and stretch it over several trips. I hope it does not go away.

Let me know if anyone needs tickets.

I like the idea. Especially bc I have kids. Imagine a cm being able to scan a child's bracelet and locate you ASAP if your child is lost. That is worth any inconvenience to me.

My concern with these wristbands are health related. If, in fact, they are rubber or latex, then I have no choice but to stop going to Disney. I am EXTREMELY allergic to these materials...It's not only a matter of wearing it, but others wearing it and waving their hands around. I can't go into any of the play areas because of the rubber in them...I can't even go to the Lights, Motor, Action, show because I have issues with the burning rubber of the tires. I hope Disney realizes how sensitive to this material people actually are. It's hard enough not being able to do certain things at Disney...the thought of not being able to go anymore really saddens me...but Disney isn't worth my health
