I must say I really didnt like the band idea when they came out but using them a couple of weeks ago might of changed my mind. It was deff more convenient for buying food and merchandise. Geting into to the park went faster than usual especially for the middle of July. All the fastpasses we had we waited 5 mins the most. The room key entry was great but the only downside to the whole thing is that the time slots run out alot faster for FPs then with the old system where you had to run from one side of the park to the other to get them. Ill report back at the end of october when I go again.
