magic band id bracelet

Just heard that Disney will be issuing magic band id bracelets that will be used to track what rides you go on, what characters you see, etc. It will also have credit card info and enable you to reserve times for rides:

Does anyone know :

1) is this optional?

2) is this given only to those who stay at the Disney resort?

3) does that mean now longer ride waits and elimination of fast pass for those who don't wear the bracelets

I'm going in June/July, so I am not sure if this will be put in place by then.

1 - It will not be optional

2 - Right now, Disney Resort guests only

3 - Not yet, regular FP is still in place. But it will eventually be replaced by this "Fastpass Plus" concept.

It's my understanding that they're only starting to implement this, so you'll be fine in June/July and there won't be too many changes yet.

ETA: Here's an article on it, read the comments too! …touringplans.com/2013/…

noticed it mentions wearing a rubber band well thats me out of visiting as I can't touch anything with any kind of rubber in it. So would love to know what my alternative would be.

Loll01 - they are probably silicone not rubber and in a place as inclusive as disney, I wouldn't worry about it - you won't HAVE to wear it, any more than you have to wear your ticket in a pouch round you neck just now. It's not like Blackpool and their stuck on wristbands.

I'm pretty sure Disney will have taken into account every allergy under the sun and will produce a non allergic product otherwise they could end up getting their a****s sued by everyone with allergies
