Interesting news for the future for park goers...according to WDW Magic Disney's NextGen RFID FASTPASS bracelet has been listed on the government FCC website today, including an image of what it looks like (see image below). The bracelet, called "Magic Band' is battery powered, is designed to be disposable, and includes the now familiar NextGen Mickey logo and what appears to be the wearers name for easy ID in groups. The RFID bracelet will be the driving force behind much of Disney's NextGen initiative, which includes ticketless park entry, ticketless FASTPASS, attraction personalization, touch-to-pay purchasing and more. A brief desciption of the device from the filing "The radio of the device, Model MB-R1G1, is a wrist worn arm band that transmits a 2.4 GHz signal to an indoor wireless infrastructure. The PCB assembly is potted in plastic and completely overmolded with thermal plastic polyurethane. The band has no on off switch and is powered with a non-replaceable coin cell. The PCB assembly also includes a passive UHF RFID tag radio and a passive HF RFID tag radio."

Interesting, thanks for the info:) - tracsant  1478.4 #2 12:55PM
That sounds expensive! So will the cost of tickets go up? - justGoofin  161.8 #56 1:06PM
Huh, I'm not sure what to say about that. I think this is something I'm going to need to experience before I can offer an opinion. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1397.0 #3 1:06PM

Just ridiculous. I'm sure people will still go no matter the absurd cost. Who comes up with this stuff ? - 5disneylovers  1152.5 #6 2:42PM
Wow. Kind of like wildlife tagging. I wonder if there will be tourist safaris to monitor us in our natural habitat??? Lol! - Tinkerbell1265  442.0 #19 2:46PM

They installed RFID on our site mid way through our visit. Was nice to use. We also got new mattresses - DizneyGirl  935.8 #8 4:16PM
*site = lock (weird). Anyway, this all sounds pretty cool. - DizneyGirl  935.8 #8 4:20PM
They installed the rf id lock on our door yesterday just as we were getting to our room. It works great, I don't know about the wristband though, I hate things on my wrist. Guess it would be much harder to loose. - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 5:36PM
Hmm I wonder how this is all going to turn out, when we stayed at BLT and wilderness lodge there were RFID locks on our doors, when we first go there you needed a key to get into the building hitch had and RFID lock and at first we had no idea how to get in! Lol! - nodell111  166.4 #54 6:08PM
