With the emerging trend of bands and cloud technology, Disney comes out with their own. What exactly does this band do? Basically, the purpose of this band is to ensure that guests have a more pleasurable experience at Disney parks by being able to travel lighter. Currently, the band is being tested and like Google Glass, only a select number of people have been given the privilege of trying it out.
The basic functions of these bands include unlocking Disney Resort hotel rooms, entering the park, getting FastPass+ access and buying food and merchandise inside the parks. Similar to that of Google wallet and others like it, this band is basically like a portable reader with specific digital data stored in it. To work it, one simply touches it against a 'touch point', which is basically a sensor specified for the Magic Band.
