MagicBand+ Launching Today at Walt Disney World
MagicBand+ is launching TODAY, July 27, at Walt Disney World Resort!
At Walt Disney World, MagicBand+ can do everything a MagicBand can do and more – including entering theme parks, connecting your Disney PhotoPass memories, unlocking your Disney Resort hotel room and more.
The MagicBand+ has great new features, including color-changing lights, haptic vibrations, and gesture recognition – plus it pairs to your smartphone using the My Disney Experience app.
You can pick out the perfect MagicBand+ from an incredible lineup of more than 25 designs.
So what can you do - let's find out!
Disney Fab 50 Quest
As part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration, you can interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection throughout all four theme parks with the “Disney Fab 50 Quest.”
Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in “The Little Mermaid,” recently embarked on the quest and caught up with a few familiar friends – Sebastian and Flounder!
Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters
MagicBand+ is your helpful guide to finding numerous virtual bounties hidden across Black Spire Outpost with the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters experience. Vibrations and lights on MagicBand+ guide you down the right path. When you find your Bounty, you can use the Play Disney Parks app’s augmented reality thermal viewer to reveal who’s hiding in the shadows. Local guild master Raga Bua will reward you with galactic credits.
During “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom Park and “Harmonious” at EPCOT, MagicBand+ lights up and vibrates in sync with fireworks, visual effects, and music. Your MagicBand+ will also engage as all four theme park icons transform into Beacons of Magic!
Before you embark on these experiences, make sure your MagicBand+ is charged, up to date and paired to your device.
Disney Resort hotel guests may purchase MagicBand+ online at special prices before their arrival. Annual Passholder discounts will also be available on MagicBand+. All guests can buy MagicBand+ at select stores across Walt Disney World and online at shopDisney, starting at $34.99.
