This is a recent write-up I did on it.

http://www.disneyparksplanning.com/2...t-at-walt.html

Seems like they're going to begin testing it next week, which would act as the first stage of the rollout. Like I've said before, I'm ashamed to admit that I'm nervously excited to see how this plays out!

No bands yet, rumors of a few next weekend. Many active threads already discussing.

Doesn't sound likely.
They do not and have not made a practice of mailing TICKETS to resort package guests.

Stay tuned.

That is sweet. She was just trying to help. I don't think I will add that update to the what we know list.
