Looks great, WED, thanks for sharing.

Still not sure how I feel about the Magic Band concept but it sure will be exciting to have that box show up on my doorstep!

How do the bands fit......will they be super adjustable for small wrist up to really big wrists. Hope they are comfortable.

I'm not a fan of the magic band idea at all....and those are hideous!

A little additional from LP.

I think they look great. We are supposed to be getting the option, eventually of [paying to] customize the bands. I have no problem at all with the RFID bands.

This is pretty cool I think. Like a PP said, we get a souviner before we leave? Take my money! :rotfl2:

I'm thinking that this could go a step further for those of us staying on-site. We have the bands, which is now your KTTW in our possession before we leave the house so we could, in theory, get an email or a text the day of our trip that says "Room 123 in building X is ready for you" and bypass the check-in counter altogether. You get off the bus or out of your car and head straight to your room, drop off your stuff and start your trip! :thumbsup2

I'm not too fond of the "bracelet" concept, chances are I'll end up keeping mine in my bag still...I don't really want to be wearing that all day for a week straight

DisneyFive 03-21-2013 11:20 AM

Love the presentation, however...

It's a good thing that they appear small enough to fit in my pocket or in my wife's purse.

No way we want to be wearing one of those around the parks all day.

I'm just afraid of somehow losing it. ={ crazy things always seem to happen to me. But they look pretty neat. Maybe once I use one ill change my mind.

This appears to be a picture taken where the AP ticket exchange is happening. They had various displays and this was one of them. So, if you're at Epcot anytime between now and when they close up shop over in the Odyssey building, you can go in and take a look,

Random questions

1. Are these waterproof and/or washable? If wearing for 10 days in the FL heat, they will get a bit yucky. Can you wear them to waterparks and swim with them?

2. Will we get a color choice?

3. How adjustable are these? My teen's wrist is very, very tiny but they'd probably send an adult sized band.

I will wear my tan line with pride!! :cool1:

How awesome is THAT! Something to get my family pump'd when they come in the mail...very cool idea.
