MagicBand+ Will Debut at Walt Disney World in 2022
Just when you thought Magic Bands were going by the way side, Walt Disney World Resort releases their next-generation wearable technology, MagicBand+.
The original MagicBand debuted in 2013 at Walt Disney World, and MagicBand+ will keep the popular features like park and guest room entry, retail and dining, Disney PhotoPass and more. But the new MagicBand+ will unlock new moments of magic for you.
After you enter a theme park, MagicBand+ will come alive at various times with color-changing lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition. The wearable will allow you to engage with favorite Disney moments in new ways, including:
Play like a bounty hunter and find virtual bounties throughout Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Interact with the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection,” the golden sculptures spread throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks.
Experience nighttime spectaculars in a new way as you see your band light up and complement the magic, including the new “Harmonious” at EPCOT and “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom Park.
MagicBand+ will be available for purchase beginning next year, including a discounted, pre-arrival price for Disney Resort hotel guests as well as new and renewing Walt Disney World Annual Passholders.
Current MagicBands will continue to be available, along with the complimentary Disney MagicMobile service.
