I want pink!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm excited for these.
So you're absolutely sure the following will not happen to me when I go to UNI from WDW?
I'm not too worried about Disney knowing if I rode Test Track or not.
I just think they're ugly and don't like to wear wristbands that aren't elastic and beaded.
I don't like everything about the program, but that is a packaging win, IMO.
Red or blue, decisions decisions.
But I thought the idea was that you walked through the gate without turnstiles or stopping and the reader was above you?
^^ No, you still have to stop, put your card on a Mickey circle thing and do a fingerprint. I think it's a smidge quicker, but won't make lines much shorter.
No. No card. The Magic Band is your card.
I see a lot of guests, kids mostly, folded them up and putting them in their pocket. Even so, much easy to pull out than a wallet with a ton of cards in it. No more fumbling around.
Obviously the tech can be put in different products, I think a "badge" on a lanyard would be more convenient, or even a badge that clips on to clothing and has the little retractable string, though that might fall off more easily.
In the future they might use face recognition, or even retinal recognition from a moderate distance, so that you don't have to wear anything.
They go on your wrist right?
Well they could go somewhere else on your body though ... ... if ya know what I mean
Since Disney won't even mail ME tickets and luggage tags to international visitors, I just can't imagine that they will pay postage for these fancy boxes to countries outside of North America...
they dont HAVE to take one YET.....but tell me you do not EVER see this as a whole replacement for the swipe card as we know it? It will....just give it time
you mean that with these you will never leave it in the car just because its a wrist band? Wheter its a card or wristband theres a chance of it being "Forgotten"?
they should have made them into a charm piece or something for the females and something else for males, sometthing a bit smaller....Its hard for me to even wear my wedding ring due to the lack of interest in jewelry, and you would like , not force (Yet), me to wear this huge thing on my wrist that looks like Walmart designed?
Having lived in Florida for several years, I would have never wanted to wear an inch wide or so rubber band on my arm while it's 95 degrees outside. As a visitor, I certainly don't want to wear a rubber band sweat machine. No thanks.
i absolutely love them, its all an added extra to your Disney experience, i think its a great step forward especially in the time of the smart phone, no more faffing around putting your cards back in to your wallet, no more worrying about miss placing you card, as your not going to miss place these bands are you!
Love it, Nice one Disney
I suspect that I'll "wear" it attached to my belt pack. Anything other than my watch being around my wrist drives me to distraction while wearing it and then again for days afterward for having worn it. The hard ticket party wristbands were very annoying that way.
So have they said how they are going to protect them from anyone with a FRID skimmer?
