Magic Band, overall thoughts.

Here are my thoughts on the Magic Bands, in general.
1. I LOVE using this as a room key, park ticket, FP (as in not having to keep track of little slips of paper), credit card, all-in-one place kinda thing. 2. I liked being able to use the My Disney Experience app to track all of my vacay stuff, dining, FP selections, etc. in 1 place. 3. There were still some hiccups at the entry turnstiles -- as some guests struggled with understanding the concept. But overall, the speed of actual park entry was definitely improved. 4. I think it's tedious to "double scan" at the attractions when you are using a FP+ selection -- scanning 1x when you enter the initial attraction gates and AGAIN with another CM before you are able to board said-attraction. It's not terrible, but it does seem redundant. 5. I thought the little character jibbits/accessories you could purchase to "enhance" your bands were cute. I bought a set of Muppet ones to share between the hubs and myself. 6. I liked that you could choose your band color -- I found that to be fun. 7. I liked the "special delivery" box of the bands to my house before the trip. It made me feel special. 8. I loved that when checking in at the resort, security was able to zap our bands at the gate and then the resort CM was able to do the same to check us in. Easy-breezy!
So, overall, I really like the band concept -- but I just want to see the FP+ component improved.
