I saw a brief spot on a business channel saying the Disney company was going to try using digitized wristbands to integrate with the FastPass system.
Something about it telling you when your scheduled, or reserved time to ride has come up.
I guess you just scan the wristband or something, I really don't know.
Perhaps this has already been brought up somewhere else, but it is new to me.
Has anyone got more info on this?

It's something they are testing in WDW.

I can not stand to wear jewelry and freak out when they try to put those party wristbands on. It is getting closer and closer to the day when I do not have to give money to Disney anymore. Oh I forgot I have grandchildren. never mind

So much for spontaneity. The age of the tech savvy, theme park commando, armed with a smartphone and digital wristband has dawned.

So, your wrist will be automated but they still won't be able to get the riverboat to rock back and forth in the grand finale of Splash Mountain.

I'm sure that the wrist band's purpose is to cram even more people into a theme park that is all too often overcrowded. Fixing an attraction element won't accomplish that.

This is the Nextgen system that Disney's been very mum about, but has spent an estimated $1 billion developing. People have been whining.... er I mean discussing this on the WDW boards for at least year now.

Going to a theme park is becoming more and more annoying lately. Crowds, prices increasing, needing to plan years in advance to eat a meal.
