MagicBands

“What are MagicBands” is a question that I often hear.  It’s simple, they are your everything during your Walt Disney World vacation.  okay, maybe it’s not that simple, and as your friendly travel agent, I will go into details.  Of course when you book your vacation through me, I am here to help through every detail of this planning process.  😉

MagicBands are Disney’s ‘all access’ Key To The World. They have replaced the old Key To The World cards given to guests of Disney Resorts. They are your Resort room key, credit card, park tickets, Memory Maker, fastpass+, dining plan & reservations and pretty much everything that has to do with your visit to Walt Disney World. You can tap into all the fun with just the swoosh of your wrist.

Your MagicBands are included as part of your Walt Disney World vacation package.  The Magic Bands are now required to receive certain photos and other digital content.  This is due to the new technology that now adds photos and videos automatically to your Memory maker account, from attractions such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

What color will you choose?

What Color will you choose? Currently offered in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink and Gray.  You will be able to select your color when you personalize your MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account after you have linked your vacation.  You will also be able to choose a short name or number that will print on the inside of each band.  If you do not personalize your MagicBands before they ship, you will receive gray bands.  If you do not already have a My Disney Experience account, You can create one by going to www.StartYourDisneyExperience.com  Be sure that you customize your MagicBands at least 35 days prior to your arrival; they will ship directly to your house before your departure.

After your first Disney vacation, your MagicBands will remain active in your account until you deactivate them.  For consecutive Disney vacations, you can choose new MagicBands and bring along your old ones in case you want to change colors to match your outfit.  😉  Will you collect all of the colors?  *It has been said that these bands do have a life span.  There is a small RFID chip inside that will expire after a certain amount of time so I always recommend bringing along a fresh set of MagicBands with you.

If for some reason you do not wish to wear around these convenient MagicBands, you may request a Key Card that will do as most everything that the MagicBand does.

*A credit card must be presented at Resort hotel check-in or added during online check-in, in order to use your MagicBand to make purchases.

  1. My son and myself went to Disney summer of 2015. We stayed on site and both have magic bands. I am taking advantage of the three day special they are currently offering and plan on visiting this May but will not be staying at a resort. Should we bring and wear our bands from last time? Are there any benefits in wearing them?

    • The MagicBands will work like your ticket for you. If you link your park tickets the My Disney Experience account that the MagicBands are linked with, you will be able to use your MagicBands just like your tickets. So… you can use them to enter the parks and for your Fastpasses. No real huge advantage other than the fact that they look really cool. 🙂 Be sure & bring your park tickets too, just in case Disney has a ‘magical glitch’. 😉 Happy Travels, Melissa
