I was able to get one of these for my F&G visit on Saturday. I purchased mine at the kiosk on the bridge to WS from FW, where they sell Mickey/Minnie ears. That's probably the most convenient place to pick one up if you're on your way. I also saw them for sale at the festival merchandise kiosks around WS and at the festival center. I found the spiral stretchy band to be much more comfortable than the rubber band used on the F&W ones! I also noticed that the wristband is attached to the card by a small binder clip; the band itself also comes apart. So you have options for attaching it to a keychain, lanyard, or bag if you'd prefer to carry it that way

Does anyone know if they sell normal wristband gift cards at the parks (like just a plain Mickey gift card but mini and with the spiral wristband)? I found an old thread saying that they only sold them at the water parks but that was a year and a half ago and was wondering if this might have changed?

As far as I know, they are only available at the water parks and at Epcot during the Food & Wine Fest. They've been introduced at Epcot's Flower & Garden Fest this year, as well. But I've never seen them in any of the other parks, or at Epcot during non-festival times.

The Food & Wine cards started out with the coiled plastic wristband last year, but they broke so often that after the second day they had to replace them all with rubber bands. So it wasn't their idea to use rubber bands in the first place. Hopefully they have found a better supplier this time.

Oh, I didn't know that! I only used mine for one day, but it held up fine. I plan to make a second visit to try all the things I couldn't fit in last week, so if I do that I'll use the band again. It seems to be pretty durable.

Can I get a F&G gift card and purchase it with a gift card? I know its kind of funny but the little wrist one will work better for around WS, plus they are adorable.

At DL, you can't buy a gift card with a gift card, it is probably the same at WDW. If staying on property, you can charge the gift card to your KTTW card and then apply the original gift card to your account balance at your resort.

These sound so convenient and cool! Are they only offered at the food and wine festival?

It is the same at WDW. You cannot load a Disney gift card using another Disney gift card.

If you are staying on property, you can buy it with your room key and then use your gift cards to help pay off your room charges. We have done this.

Please help me understand - other than the cuteness, how is this more convenient than charging to KTTW card (assuming RFID hasn't replaced them yet)?
