Building on the success of the MagicBand testing, guests staying at all Walt Disney World Resort hotels will now receive only a MagicBand (not a Key to the World card) to use as their room key and more throughout their stay.
Upon check-in, guest will receive their MagicBands, if they did not already receive them at home. Front Desk Cast Members can provide a RF-enabled Key to the World card instead of a MagicBand if a Guest requests it. This card functions the same way a MagicBand does, including the “touch to enter” resort room, “touch to enter” Theme Parks and Water Parks (with valid Theme Park admission), “touch to pay” (optional), “touch to redeem” FastPass+ selections and “touch to associate” photo features.
A small number of Guests will receive an RF- enabled card (in addition to a MagicBand) for use on common-area doors. This includes Disney’s Fort Wilderness Campground Guests, as well as concierge-level Guests who check into their Resort before their room is ready. These cards will not offer the functionality that a MagicBand provides.
There has also been some talk that you may need to save your MagicBands to use on future trips to Walt Disney World. If you don’t already save everything (like I do) then hang on to those bands for your future trips.
