    I haven't heard anything about international. Maybe for those staying a full week, but they may just do rfid tickets only.

    Maybe I am the only that thought about this but when my family wants to do fast passes on rides, we normally send one person with all the tickets while the rest of us go wait in line for another ride or for food. With the wrist bands that is going to be alot harder. Everyone will have to take there band off (which takes up some time), then that one person is going to have to carry all of them. And if you can not take the bands off while at the parks, the lines for fast passes are going to be crazy long.

    I like the idea of the bands but at the same time I don't.

    That is a very good point but I think they are trying to balance that out by making 3 FP's available before you even get in the park. Just a thought.

    That is a good point. And that may work with people that are planning there trip but I have family that just pack and go to Disney for a day so that wouldn't work for them.

    That won't be an issue. If you choose the magic band you will no longer be able to use the fastpass kiosks in the park. You will have to pick your fast pass times using the website or mobile app once they update it. Basically you schedule your fastpass time. That's why Disney is giving people the choice between bands and paper ticket. So as I understand if you choose the bands option your forced to use fastpasd plus. It's a good question to ask when making a reservation or when your offered the bands at time of check-in at a resort.

    Wait I heard if you get the band there will only be 3 fp available. I am confused now I assumed you could get 3 before the park and then when you are in you get whatever.

    I am not sure how to get them before. But I am sure if you get them there they are easy to customize. Maybe call Disney. If you find out please let me know cause we are going in December a d I would love all the feedback I can get so I know what I am in store for. I can send you my email if you don't mind giving me the info.
