Some ppl don't want to wear a band. They really aren't comfortable (seems to be a wrist shape thing) for all people. Some ppl don't want to give the kids bands they may lose, others just don't want the band. The card is also an option for those ppl.

I think it would be great for Disney to know about bus use. The buses could be directed based on real data.... haven't you been there at least once, 30 people waiting at hotel x for a DHS bus while one bus after another arrives to pick up nobody going to DTD, etc.? Or at the end of the evening if they knew that 200 of the 350 people who just left the park are going back to CSR? They could tag a handful of buses to that stop?

Bathrooms could be cleaned after so many guests.... or additional Mousekeepers could be routed to particularly busy restrooms....

My parents say I was an imaginative child. :|

And why not just get the card? WHY get the band at all? From the info in the box the bands came in:

"If you prefer, you may alect to use an RF card instead of a MagicBand. The card contains a passive HF radio frequency chip and cannot be detected by the long-range readers. You can learn more about our privacy and data collection policies by visiting MyDisneyExperience.com/privacy."

Instead of getting the bands then blocking them, just use the card.
But that is not the whole quote. It actually says

"The MagicBand uses radio frequency (RF) technology and can be read by short and long-range readers located at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you prefer to use an RF card, which cannot be detected by long-range readers, you can request an RF card at your Disney Resort hotel, and you do not need to customize your MagicBand."

I take that to mean that the cards can still be read by the short-range readers.

Not sure what the difference is, though, in what can be detected.

Mother Gothel, to answer your original question, Magellan's is an excellent online source for RFID-blocking wallets and bags:
