First and foremost, Disney needs people to WANT to come to its parks. This assures guest satisfaction and profits. At this point, we really don't know what Disney's long term plans are for Magic Bands. If the author is truly correct, then what we're seeing now is simply a side affect (and an added bonus/profit) for what Disney really means to do.
IF there is a grand plan...it has to have a face to show the public. Customizable rides would be the logical way to go with it...if they can hammer down the technology to do so.
And it would be innovative...which they desperately need. Disney used to set the bar at the park...now they sure as heck don't.

Let's hope that interactive for avatar, star wars, disney characters, pixar reinvents the whole place.

And they could add some more decent restaurants too - never hurts.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world-- those who understand the binary numbering system, and those who do not.

Yeah-- they should do like Sea World and have a grouping of restaurants to be included in the free dinning and leave the top shelf ones to be top shelf.

Would that matter?
They've already cut selections and jacked the prices through the ceiling...

Imagine if they made them "more premium" and took them out of the "paupers" dining plans...
There would HAVE to be a price markup on that $44 filet...wouldn't there?
