Feedback needed: Disney World announces the use of MagicBands

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

We're working on a blog story and would love your feedback. Disney World has announced that they will be transitioning to data-collecting wireless wristbands (MagicBands) instead of paper tickets.

The MagicBands will act as a guest's room key, theme park ticket, access to FastPass+ selections, PhotoPass card and optional payment account, tracking everything from what you buy to which attractions you visit.

What do you think about this? Are you more attracted by the convenience of this offering, or bothered that the company is collecting your personal data?

You can see the full announcement here: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/01/taking-the-disney-guest-experience-to-the-next-level/
