So are the magic bands going to replace the ticket cards? We went last year and didn't stay on property. We just had cards with our park hoppers on them. How are the magic bands supposed to work?

Wow, are we this close now? Have to admit, I like then as accessories, not sure about using them as tickets etc.

From what I understand, they are for AP holders and resort guests. Not sure if off property guests will use these or not.

Can anyone confirm?

I read they will be available for purchase to offsite guests, but don't remember where I read it.

The accessories look fun! Thanks for sharing the link. We'll definitely get suckered into buying personalized sliders for our kids, if the bands are available for our trip. Seem similar in cost to the charms.

I wonder how we could re-use them after the trip... has anyone seen what the backings of the sliders look like? I'm sure someone will come up with something creative to do with them. Maybe decorate lunch bags or something like that.

Kind of depends on who you believe. I follow Dave Shute from yourfirstvisit.net and he believes there will be availability in some capacity sometime between Sept-Nov, but not full fledge use until Jan. 4 or 5. He bases this on statements made by Rasulo and Igor themselves.
