Very interesting and a very informative website. This is fortuitous for me as we are planning a visit to Disney World in the upcoming months...

We made a reservation and were directed to order our food online for the "Beauty and the Beast" restaurant in the Magic Kingdom. When we arrived for our reservation, we were told to get our drinks and silverware and sit down anywhere we wanted in the three very large dining rooms, and our food would be brought to us. Within 15 minutes, our food arrived, and the waiter confirmed that the Magic Band was used to locate us.

Interesting. An indoor location system. The Magic Kingdom is looking more magical all the time. Do kids get lost anymore at Disneyland? Not if they're wearing the band?

I hadn't thought of the kid location use! Yeah, there seems to be a short and long range system in there, so you could theoretically NEVER be outside of disney's location services (while in the park).
