[QUOTE=Captgoodguy;1127991]I’m sure Disney has already thought about and well planned for this but I have a few concerns:
Is this wristband removable at the end of the day? I wouldn’t want to have this on 24/7.
What about if it gets wet? Would showering/swimming/water rides would have some sort of effect on the band?
What about us AP’s? How does this work with our paper tickets?
Does it have personal information printed on it so if you lose it, someone can just walk right to your hotel room and gain entrance?
Being a finance guy, I honestly can’t imagine how they allocated $1 Billion on this project. That tells me they must be thinking of some major additional fees they can charge to recoup that kind of expense. Nobody, not even Disney spends $1 Billion that easily.[/QUOTE]
If you spread the cost out to all 10 Disney parks plus the waterparks and DisneyQuest and all 30+ hotels, you could spend $1 billion, especially if you’re going to incorporate room keys and tickets. It is a lot of money to develop and roll out something like this, but I don’t see how this could have cost $1B in total.
I do feel that Disney is convinced the cost of the system is worth the time and money. So they will continue to roll it out, no matter how much we complain that it’s already bad enough that we have to make dining reservations 6 months without adding the pressure of planning seven days worth fast passes so far in advance.
