Some Disney News for you all: Disney had been planning to fully roll out its new Magic Band program to all WDW Resorts this year – but it looks like this has changed, and has been delayed. It will likely be several months before the program is fully operative for all guests, according to Disney sources.
The Magic Band program is essentially an RFID bracelet that acts as your Resort room key and room charge account, and it also stores your reservation, Fastpass, and Disney ticket information for a more seamless guest experience. It sounds like a great idea, and I know it has been several years in the making for Disney, as a LOT of work and updates are needed to make this functional
Personally, I hope this doesn’t affect my chance to try out the Magic Bands – I already picked out the color (PINK!) and the My Disney Experience website asked me for my shipping address – so I will keep my fingers crossed that mine will arrive soon and I can have the chance to participate in the testing process for this new system
Check out more info here, and stay tuned – I will post more info as it becomes available!
