In addition, I only saw the MagicBands actually USED twice, at Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Haunted Mansion. They seemed to work reasonably fast.
I spoke with a CM managing the Fastpass+ line at Spaceship Earth, and asked how many people had been using it. “None today,” was his response…and this was mid-afternoon.
I didn’t see it used for purchases, but expect that it works about the same as the cards…fast, but the PIN entry pads can be a bit quirky.
Testing expands in a few days. The four existing resorts – Animal Kingdom Lodge, Contemporary, Yacht Club and Pop Century will be joined by the Beach Club, Art of Animation, Polynesian and Port Orleans Riverside. In addition, the Beach Club Villas and the DVC rooms in the Jambo House at AKL, but not Kidani Village, will be included, for September and October.
