ugh...lame!

I love the goodbyes in various languages. So do the kids. Makes it fun to guess the language.

*sigh*

That would be great! I could see these new magic bands being used in so many ways!

We wont be wearing the wristbands, they'll be in our bags ect so I'm not sure this would even work for us. And I know we'll forget to "wear" them just to get this last part of the ride at the end.

I'll miss the simple end to the ride, loved that room!

Thought the same thing with Uni's ET ride. We've always heard our names and when the kids were little, they loved hearing their names. Now we thin it's kitschy but still fun. At least they did without a tracking bracelet.

Except Big Brother has been around for a while. He's just getting to WDW in a big way.

If you're not "wearing" the band and it's in your bag ect, will they still be able to read where you are?

Question Why no goodbye?

Does it necessarily signal the end of the 'goodbye'?

I'd have thought, and maybe hope, that the room will return in a similar format except the signs will display the name and a goodbye for each rider of the passing boat in their own language, and in the event of a part filled boat, the signs would default to a randomly selected goodbye in a language not displayed for a rider.

I have no problem with the 'big brother' aspect as Disney already know my habits to a degree through room card and credit card use. Marketing tailored for that will get the same result as marketing they would no doubt create if they didn't know my movements. What it will do is provide better demographic returns that could eventually make my experience more enjoyable.

I wish they would add the Disney characters to ISAW like Disneyland did. It's very subtle, but improves the ride so much. I agree that this "new" feature reminds me of ET, except you won't be able to give silly fake names like my family does when we ride ET.

I HATE people filming with iPads. At my DD's Christmas "show" at preschool the woman in front of me held up her giant iPad the entire time blocking my view. I really do not understand it. If someone does that while I am at Disney I might have to say something.

Am I to understand that only resort guests will have this little treat, and that if I am a day guest to the park, I will just see a blank space?

I'm pretty sure the roll out of My Magic+ is going to increase presence and use of ipads in the park substantially. It has far better battery life than many smart phones, and the MDE app works better. The FP+ "upgrade" info so far seems to indicate you will be able to change FP selectons on the fly - but if you do not want to stand at a kiosk, you will need smart phone or mobile device. Sorry!!
