MagicBands are secure all-in-one devices that allow you to effortlessly access the plans and vacation choices that you’ve made with My Disney Experience. They are colorful, waterproof wristbands – resembling a watch or bracelet.
Each MagicBand has an RFID chip that contains data about your MyMagic+ account and allows you to interface with the various aspects of the MyMagic+ system by touching your MagicBand to the “touch points”. These “touch points” are found everywhere throughout the Resort – from your hotel room door, to cash registers, to park entrances and more.
What are MagicBands Used For?
- You can use your MagicBand to unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room.
- You can use your MagicBand to enter a theme park or water park (with valid admission).
- You can use your MagicBand to check in at FastPass+ entrances to access the Fast Pass lines at attractions.
- You can use Your MagicBand to connect Disney PhotoPass images to your MyMagic+ account.
- You can use your MagicBand to charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room during your hotel stay.
How Do You Get a MagicBand?
- You will automatically receive a MagicBand when you book a Walt Disney World vacation package through us and stay at a Disney Resort hotel.
- You can then personalize your MagicBand by choosing a different color for each member of your family from 8 solid colors – pink, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, blue and gray.
- In addition, you can purchase MagicBands online, from the Shop Disney Parks app, or at select Walt Disney World shops and at other retail locations.
- The MagicBands that you purchase can easily be linked to your MyMagic+ account through My Disney Experience.
If you are taking advantage of Disney’s Magical Express, Disney’s complimentary motorcoach service from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel, do not pack your MagicBands in your checked luggage.
Instead, keep them with you and easily accessible, since they will be used to check in with Disney’s Magical Express and to unlock your room when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel!
