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 agree with the comment on the post....Shut up and take my money. Those would be awesome. Hopefully the system will be up by late August. Pretty sure DD would be wearing them forever.

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.

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

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

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!

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.

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.

1 - Something I wanted to know and forgot to ask.
2 - I was told last night that you can choose your color and also have a name added to it (at least AP holders will be able to). I think they had 7 colors.
3 - They have holes like a watch band to adjust the size.

They are supposed to be waterproof so water parks and pools aren't a problem. There will be a free band for on site guests and options to upgrade for a price but not sure what yet. They are adjustable and should fit many different size wrists. Hth
