FastPass+ touch points now feature standby light sequence for visibility inside attraction queues

The touch points at most FastPass+ merge points have been upgraded to include a new standby light sequence.

In response to some guests finding it difficult to see the RFID touch point in the queue on many of the dark rides, a new white cycling light sequence continuously plays between guest interactions.

When a MagicBand or RFID ticket is detected, the touch point displays the usual green success sequence, and then reverts back to the cycling white light sequence.

Originally the Mickey head and circle were dark when not reading/registering a band. Now it sounds as if the circle will be constantly spinning a white light. This is to help guests locate the touch point. (Think Space Mountain where the second tap station is inside where it is darker and may not be able to see Mickey)

I need to see a video to comment. I thought they all had the circle of light that spun around until the orb turned green. I'm trying to figure out what's new.
