Guest Services to the Rescue!

Guest Services?  You ROCK!

Earlier this month, Mrs. All in WDW and I renewed our Annual Passes.  Of course, that offered us an opportunity to add to our Magic Band “collection”.  After all, who couldn’t use another Magic Band?!

Plastic RFID-enabled Annual Passes

When we renewed our annual passes back in January, Mrs. All in WDW and I were a little bit disappointed that Disney wasn’t quite ready to reward their Annual Passholders with new, plastic, RFID-enabled versions of park-entry tickets.
