Nice, thanks for the info!

ETA: The Wi-Fi transmitter.... is it sending a signal to my smart phone so I can actually use it (only for My Disney Experience of course) rather than constantly getting "poor" signal strength?
Well, hopefully when this starts someone will post the text online for us to read first.
Thanks for all that info.
No, it's not an access point. It stands alone and broadcasts unchanging information to someone with a receiver (likely a CM with a tablet)
Thanks! I kind of thought my thinking was WAY too good to be true!
Given that same dayers will have access to FP+, it appears that your planning needs only to change if you want it to.
No. They'll be kiosks available.
The magic bands are waterproof.
I wouldn't get too stressed. Also, does anyone have an ipod touch? You can use that, or a kiosk.
It's tied to your profile that you can access online or via your phone. They likely will also be able to print it out for you.
I bet they aren't, but I kind of wish they would (could?).
Can't both be true? If they market better to me, doesn't it improve my experience?
Why would it be tied to your fingerprint?
Since the bracelet only contains a number that is tied to your guest profile, replacement of lost ones becomes super easy. They would pull up your profile and delete the old bracelet's number (or otherwise decouple it from your profile). Then they would merely enter the number of the replacement bracelet into your profile. It would be as simple as replacing a lost swipe key at a hotel.
You would not need a picture of it or otherwise need any ticket/reservation number because all of that data exists in your profile.
Sounds as though this will work the way the Disney cruise ships do...when you scan your card/bracelet at the gate, the CM will see your photo on a screen and know you are the person to whom that account is assigned. The cruise line doesn't use the fingerprint scanners.
I haven't read through this entire thread but I'm assuming having a bracelet doesn't necessarily mean you have to use FP+? I'd really hope so because I have no intention of using it. ever. I am annoyed at the bracelet idea in general. I don't wear a watch because I can't stand the feeling, I don't wear bangles or bracelets for the same reason.
Don't forget these!
I suggest hanging your Magic band from your lanyard, beltloop etc.
More Disney merchandise for people to buy like designer wristbands, character wristbands etc.
Still, it's a great idea not to have to carry a wallet on park LOL
Hubby has large wrists and hands, it's difficult for him to find a usable watchband. He's not going to wear a rubber band on his arm, I can tell you that!
LOL, where do you come up with stuff like this? (Also loved the cat earlier).
Do you just google "tan line" or something?
Oh, you reminded me of one point I forgot. How disposable are the bands. Because the band has an inaccessable battery, people are assuming these are use once then trash bands. The thing is, it is a lot like the toll transponders in the cars. Now I've had those for a long time, since they came out in MA in around 2000. I've had to replace it only twice (and the last time I replaced it was probably 8 years ago)! So the designer bands should work for multiple trips, though it's impossible to know how long.
Although I am sure they won't advertise that little gem too much since they will want people to buy new customized ones EVERY trip
I'm very excited about this!!! Can't wait to hear more.
We have a relative that is a CM, and they get us in the parks, as that is a perk of being a CM. How will this writsband thing affect that? Any CMs out there that can weigh in on how this will be a plus or minus for my family????
My "Google-fu" is strong.
Why, yes it is!
I am sure my pre-teen daughter will have the same thoughts if she has to wear one in August. LOL "but mom, tan lines" (insert eye-roll)
I like cards because I pass them out at the gate then collect them back as we go through. DH and I will run ahead for FPs so it's great to have them all together. Granted with FP+ we won't need to do this, we'll only need to go on the APP and make our plans and GO.
I always have to see something in real life to "get it". Hopefully optimistic.
