This looks really cool. I think disney is actually making a good step here with this. This will obviously make a ton of money for disney and I think accessories will be greatly expanded over the next year.

disney lover at heart

Keeping my fingers crossed for when we are there in Sept. I don't think we will have a chance when we are there in 2 weeks. But I can dream....

I love the idea of the covers as the cloth "should" make the bands less sticky to the skin. I only wish they had some covers that were coordinated with the bandits, such as a cover of brooms to go with the sorcerer bandits.

I also think it looks great and I'm sure it will be a great souvenir but... we should have known that Disney would find a way to make money out of this technology.

I'm pretty sure they would not have spent the amount of money it cost to create this system if they were not going to make money out of it!

This customization is why I am looking forward to the bands and really, really hope they are out by September!

The customization is a great feature, especially for the little kids. Some kids might not want to wear them, but if you can decorate it and make it unique to them, they will probably want to wear it.

I think being able to buy things to personalize your band is adorable and I hope I get to use one in my sept or nov trips!

Fingers crossed! Ill look out for these when I go in Nov. Really cool idea. Im nervous that Ill lose my pass, so this would make me feel more relaxed, and much easier to just tap and go.

Be cool if they linked them to a credit card like Key to the World, so you can use it to pay for purchases (or is this a feature too?), and even as your room key if staying at a resort.
