Cool idea, but it would give those with the PDAs an unfair advantage over the others.
Not true. Since it's tied to the ticket, they still only get their one fastpass at a time. It would be exactly like the system now, but without all the walking.
Oh, and by the way, if we're talking unfair advantages for a Disneyland experience, there's allready several. Like checking Disneyland.com For times and tickets, using MiceChat to find out Fastpass tips, etc.

Well, I kinda think that right there would be an unfair advantage. Let's say you and I are standing outside Space Mountain and we both want a Splash Mountain Fastpass. You have your PDA, but I have to walk across the park. Now let's say the parade is rolling through right about now. So, who gets the better return time?
With Verizon Broadband Access on my laptop...I've got high-speed internet almost anywhere I go (even in taxis), and never have to sweat out finding a "WiFi Hotspot" if I don't want to. Several other cell companies have their own Broadband Cellular Networks as well these days.
In fact all this week...I've been surfing while in the parks here at Walt Disney World.
I don't think that Wireless Hotspots in DL resturants would be a good idea. At least not during peak season. When it's crowded, I rather not people tying up a table surfing the net when others are looking for a place to sit down and eat.
you know...if the signal was strong enough........SOme of mainstreet would recieve the signal and part of fantasyland....why not give all of the park internet access.....they can put it in the map as "all areas of the Disneyland resort are wifi......ect ect...it wouldn't take away from the magic...some people would just be able to use there pc's in DL
This just brings in way too much responsibility for Disney as well as way way too much of the real world. The idea is to escape, not turn Disneyland into a Starbucks. Innoventions access to VMK is good enough for what the park stands for.
Think about what people would be looking at on their computers, what's to stop them from using it for pornography and so forth. Then again sure say they can block it, people might still have it on their laptops and that computer still comes into the park and can be seen.
Also with wireless access in Tomorrowland, do we really want people on their laptops during attactions, like Space or Star Tours? We all hate flashes on rides enough this is just something that is not needed.
I very much doubt that Disney wants a bunch of AP'ers with laptops turning Disneyland into their own private office, especially when the park is busy and seating for people actually buying food can already be scarce.
