Disney Testing MagicBands for their Parks!


Disney announced at the D11 conference that they’re testing out wristbands – MagicBands – with their theme park users.

What this means is that guests won’t have tickets or cards to get in, or to book attractions they can just wave their wrist. They’ll also work as stored value cards for buying things at concessions across their park. There’s even the opportunity for staff to learn the names of their little users to enhance the Disney Experience.

AllThingsD has all the details.
