I have to say, this is one of the best ideas for an APP! Wearing your MagicBand at Walt Disney World® makes life so much easier – no room key to carry – no park ticket to carry – no FastPass little paper tickets to keep in your pocket. Everything is right there on your MagicBand, even your credit card! Well, if you are anything like me, the easier it is for you to make a purchase, the more purchases you will make. Then your end of trip statement or your credit card bill arrives and BAM!!! Look at all the times you tapped that MagicBand! Research shows that without having to put lots of thought into spending – just tap your MagicBand – people will tend to spend more money. The extra steps of taking out your card, swiping your card, signing for your purchase – or if you use a debit card, entering your PIN, gives people time to re-think their purchase and perhaps not spend as much. Starting July 1 when the APP goes live, no need to worry about over-tapping!
