Hey there guys and gals! It’s me… Anonymouse and I have been searching up and down and had my ear to the ground listening for some juicy new tips for you. Of course with all that work, I have stumbled upon something very interesting!
Word on the street (Main Street of course!) is that wristbands are going to be replacing tickets at Disney’s theme parks! What you say? How is that…seems like a reverse in technology, right? Well these are special (magical even!) wristbands that are going to take some of the headaches away from keeping up with those tickets. How do we know this…well the reason we know that this change is in the works is because Disney filed documents recently with the FCC asking for approval for a wristband that will be used for admission privileges to major theme parks like Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California. Seems pretty legit…right?
Anyway, these bands can be worn throughout the day and are designed to be disposable as well as waterproof (think Splash Mountain)! The bands also communicate with a 2.4GHz spectrum (whatever that means…ask Chimp, he is good with that stuff). The other selling points of the band is that they can be personalized with a specific name, so helping Disney keep in check that tickets are non-transferable; and there will be some interaction with FastPass and the next generation of FastPass.
There is also a possibility that the band will be your key to your hotel room at Walt Disney World, basically it could replace the whole Keys to the World card.
Sounds pretty cool but I am sure there is a downside….what do you think? Will it be a good system? Let me know in the comments below!
Anywho that is all the Disney Gossip I have right now. For my past Gossip articles be sure to check them out here.
