The Magic Band is your key to anything and everything at Disney
World. Disney uses RFID technology to enable you the comfort and ease of not
needing to carry tickets and cards. The
MagicBands are similar to a watch in the fact that you can wear it on your
wrist. I have also seen people wearing
them on their ankle or on their backpacks, but I would not recommend this as it
is so much easier to just tap your wrist and go! The MagicBands come in a wide
variety of colors that you can select from as part of your package if you are
planning an on-property vacation or if you are a Walt Disney Annual Passholder. If you purchase off-property, you will not get
magic bands, but you will still be able to purchase a MagicBand and link your
tickets if you would like.
What can my MagicBand do?
With your MagicBand, you will have the opportunity to do so
many things! If you are staying in a
Disney Resort hotel room, you will be able to use the MagicBand to unlock your
room. You will also be using your
MagicBand to enter any of the four parks or two water parks. If you have booked your fast passes, you will
use your MagicBannd to check into the separate FastPass+ entrances. One of my favorite benefits of the MagicBand
is the fact that it is connected to you Disney PhotoPass. Whether or not you are paying for the
PhotoPass, you will still be able to touch your MagicBand to the photographer’s
reader to get immediate access to your amazing Disney Photos! Finally, when you check into your hotel, if
you put down a credit card, you will be able to charge any purchases to your
room using your Magic Band. While this
does make things really easy, you need to be conscious of what you are charging
so that you don’t get any unwanted surprises the night before you check out!
I see Really CoolMagic Bands. Where
do I get them?
If you want, you can go online to Disney.com or go to any store in the parks or at Disney Springs and purchase MagicBands. If you are looking for white, or Millennial Pink, or black, you can purchase them. Also, in any Disney store, you will find so many different MagicBand options. No matter your favorite character, your favorite ride, your favorite park, or your favorite anything Disney, there is probably a MagicBand for you. If you are looking for a much cheaper option but still want a shnazzy MagicBand, look around online or on Instagram for MagicBand skins. There are so many options to choose from. Many of the people that sell them will also do a variety of customizations as well, so the possibilities are literally endless.
