Well, I like the idea in a few ways, other ways I don't like it. It is a good way to connect with guests, but isn't that just Big Brother looking at who and where you are. I'm glad this is only optional, because personally I wouldn't want to wear a band that tells strangers where I am and who I am.

It could actually be a great tool in finding your children if you should get separated. I don't have a problem with it as long as its an option. I don't see Disney trying to force this on to its guests.

I agree, Mr. Roberts, especially for those with children. It's a real safety issue in the world as it is now. Don't think it would be forced on people but it definitely is a viable option for security - and for older people too, who might wander away. And Mr. AA0, Big Brother is everywhere already - there are millions of cameras out there, pretty much everywhere we go. Generally speaking, I think they keep us safer under most conditions, and they sure help catch a lot of people who steal from stores, etc. Maybe eventually the crime rate will go down more because of those cameras and other gadgets that will become more available in the future. Technology is fascinating. As long as it's protecting those who do no wrong and catching the crooks, I have no problem with it. Look at all the people who post their every move on Facebook - that, I think, is very dangerous - and not smart at all. But just my opinion; to each his own.
