It is being reported by Reddit user Lisaaxmariee that at Blizzard Beach they are currently testing a ride return system similar to FastPass+. Guests can pick up these waterproof wristbands that allow them to return during a 30 minute window to by-pass the line. We are hearing that these bands can be picked up at the ski lift. One side is designated for Teamboat springs and Summit plummet bands and the other side is for Down Hill Double Dipper bands.
There is a screen displaying the available times that you can choose from and you are handed a wristband. Once your window is open you are directed to a separate line where a cast member is there to verify your band. Currently this is available for all guests of Blizzard Beach.
These wristbands have not been confirmed by Disney as a permanent change for the Disney water parks. Since MagicBands are already waterproof, I can see this as an easy transition if this test proves beneficial.
What do you think of this change? Would you be excited to see MagicBands come to the water parks?
