^From what I've heard Tokyo will NOT get the MDX system. They already have much more advanced technology in Japan that they use for several RFID services. I expect TDR to do some version of it in the future but it will be much different (and probably much better!)
^^Yeah good point, I forgot how awesome and ahead of the curve Japan already is.
I guess with the new Apple pay system you cwill eventually be able to use your phone for the touch to pay and if Disney wanted to I'm sure they could build into the MDX app the ability to use your phone for park admission and FastPass+. As cool as the magic bands are they might not be necessary in the future.

I would love to see what TDR could come up with! They would make the current system look so basic.
Earlier this week in China, we shared some exciting updates for Shanghai Disney Resort, including a new birdseye view of the Resort, a first look at two themed hotels and what’s planned for an area called Disneytown – a spectacular shopping, dining and entertainment district.
The signature hotel of Shanghai Disney Resort will be the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, an elegant Art Nouveau-inspired hotel with a touch of Disney magic and imagination. Also, our Toy Story Hotel will transport guests to a world inspired by the toys from the Disney•Pixar series of “Toy Story” animated films.
“We are excited to provide guests with a glimpse of the unique hotels and the vibrant retail, dining and entertainment district we are creating as a part of the new Shanghai Disney Resort,” said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “These elements, like the entire park and resort area, are designed to deliver the quality, guest service and great storytelling of Disney, and created specifically with our Chinese guests in mind.”
Disneytown will be located near the two resorts and Shanghai Disneyland and feature world-class entertainment in China at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre – along with distinctive dining and unique shops. This Art Deco theatre in Broadway Plaza will host the global premiere of the Mandarin version of “THE LION KING,” the highest-grossing Broadway show ever.
At the heart of Disneytown will be the Marketplace – a location filled with specialty shops with Disney merchandise, musicians and entertainers.
Next to the Marketplace will be an area called Spice Alley, offering a variety of popular Asian cuisines in a casual, yet romantic environment. The al fresco dining spots are perfect for lunch with friends or a more formal date. And the intimate streets and festive lights encourage leisurely after dinner strolling.
Broadway Boulevard at Disneytown will have stylish boutiques that create an upscale atmosphere. Guests will discover an exciting array of popular labels and trendsetting products.
Also near Disneytown will be the resort’s central lake area, offering guests from Shanghai and around the world an opportunity to commune with nature, surrounded by peaceful greenery and a beautiful lake. The area includes a walking path and various beautiful gardens, which present guests with awe-inspiring natural views and beautiful sunsets.
