But you pay a lot less per park day, so Disney could be saying your FP+s should be limited. Or, if anything, you should pay a lot more since you would be able to stroll into a park Friday after work and ride 3 E-tickets, and go home.

I could easily see them doing this to drive folks away from APs. If their numbers show that APs don't spend enough on merch to warrant eating up a lot of FP+ that could make one time visitors happier, and spend more.

And unless their restaurants are running with lots of empty tables (I doubt it), dining will be unaffected.

Customizing them will not make them more comfortable to wear..

I know a few people who have tried them, and found them comfortable, but they didn't not use them in the parks specifically.

we are in AK and it's hot and humid. But my wrists were sweating at the resort in the a/c too. The top half is hard formed so it doesnt comform to your wrist.

New accessory...wrist sweatbands...

If this becomes a problem, let's hope they come up with an alternative quickly, like the rumored keyfob.

I think the anti-nausea ones might come in some shade of yellow...

im sorry for not reading through this entire thread, but if you use the FP+, do you have to pick a time frame or are they good for the entire day?

You pick an hour window, based on availability (not all times may be available).

I predict a lanyard fob of some sort. This will appear on the scene about the time Disney realizes that people wearing magicbands might buy magicband accessories, but stop buying lanyards and all those pretty pins to wear on them.

I'll probably try to attach ours to lanyards. I don't want to wear it on my wrist.

Trying to read all threads related to MB & FP+
and understand this is all speculation at this point.. but would it be possible to choose the 3 FP+ for the same attraction at a park ?

RFID is simple enough in general that they can make anything...it's a matter of form and convenience, since the whole point was to make it too convenient to use for charging... The only restrictions on are on the battery and the length/shape of the antenna, which until someone disassembles a band I'm not sure if it may in fact occupy a decent portion of the band. Most of the "sticker" types are actually mostly the antenna arranged in a square pattern.

I was actually thinking i wouldn't mind if they offered one of the waterproof lanyard card cases with the feature. I need that for all the other cards I still currently need to carry.

Another one could be a keyring...I can actually picture it. Imagine something like this, with the medallion as the "magicband":




The problem may be in that convenience...too easy to put in a pocket.

A keyfob should work for that...but that might be my alternative for the band as well if it is a problem.
