    Could this be true or just rumor? Is there new technology about to be announced at Disney Parks and Resorts?

    At the moment guests use their “Key to the Worldâ€￾ as their hotel room key, credit card, park ticket, Disney Dining Plan card, fast passes, etc. Rumor has it that Disney will be switching to customizable wristbands.

    The current plan would offer a basic wristband, you choose your color, with the built in RFID (Radio Frequency Identification- translation- technology that allows a unique code to be wirelessly be transmitted under close range).

    So how does it work? Well rumor is:

    • The wristband will be used to open your resort door.
    • The wristband will be your ticket into all theme parks.
    • You will be able to use your wristband to charge all your purchases, food, souvenirs, etc.
    • You will be able to use your wristband to gather Fast passes and also Photo passes.

    The rumor also states that you can customize your wristband (for an extra fee) with characters, your name, etc.

    It's convenient. I have used the gift card wristlets at the food and wine festival and it is SO convenient. However, not all people like to wear things around their wrists. It would be nice if you have this as a choice and the traditional key card.

    So I wonder how this would work for those of us with APs? I'm not too sure I'm keen on the idea.
