Fast Pass+ wrist bands

Just a quick question about the new wrist bands. We (a family of 7!) will be in Disney World next week. We have the 8 Day Pass with water parks and plan on going to each park twice. We aren't staying in the park, so we won't be given wrist band but I know I can purchase them once we're there. Since I have to pay for them, I'm trying to decide if it's worth it. Is it really more convenient than just our tickets? I definitely see the benefit of not having to hand out 7 tickets every time we enter the park, or use Fast Passes. But is it worth nearly $100? What does everyone else think? Have you found it that much more convenient?

I wouldn't pay for them We had them last year as we stayed onsite but I'd have been just as happy using my ticket. i don't understand why anyone would shell out money for them.

No, if I had to buy that many, the convenience of the band wouldn't be worth that much money to me.

You'll have "credit card" style tickets instead and that's not that much more inconvenient than the bands. Might want to purchase some lanyards before you go at a discount store to carry the cards in, but that would be too much money for bands, IMO.

I agree, why anyone would pay for them is beyond me.
