What are MagicBands?
The colorful, waterproof wristband is a device that will link you to all your Disney reservations. Just connect the Magic Band to your My Disney Experience account and you are all set. Use your Magic Band to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room and make purchases. It also gives you FastPass+ access to all the experiences you’ve reserved ahead of time. These magical wristbands will enable you to travel lighter and focus on enjoying your stay at the Disney parks.
How do I use my MagicBand?
Most of the time, it’s as simple as touching the MagicBand to a censor called a touch point. Censors can be found near the entrance of the park or an attraction. You can even unlock your hotel room at a Disney Resort with your MagicBand. When buying food and merchandise, guests are required to enter a PIN code.
How can I get a MagicBand?
If you are a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder or you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, MagicBands will be available to you. With the purchase of park admission, guests will receive a card. You can also buy a MagicBand online or at certain retail locations in the theme park and Disney hotels.
Can I customize my MagicBand?
Absolutely! There are a number of ways you can personalize your MagicBand. They come in a variety of colors and themes. You can choose your favorite color or match with the rest of your group. Have your name engraved on the wristband as well. Pop in some BandIts of your favorite Disney characters and symbols. If you do not customize your MagicBand 5 days before your arrival, you will receive a non-customized MagicBand when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel. So make sure you personalize your wristbands as soon as you book your trip.
How do I make purchases using my MagicBand?
Want to buy souvenirs and food at a Walt Disney theme park? You can charge purchases to your Disney resort hotel room by touching your MagicBand or card against a sensor called a touch point and entering a PIN code to uniquely identify yourself.
What should I do if I lose my MagicBand or card?
Don’t worry, here’s what you do. Deactivate the MagicBand using the My Disney Experience App. Replacement MagicBands may be subject to a fee. Also, limited-edition and specialty MagicBands cannot be replaced.
Are MagicBands protected?
Disney takes your security very seriously. Extensive measures are in place to protect your information. MagicBands and cards are part of MyMagic+, which was built with privacy controls.
Can other people use my MagicBand or card?
Your MagicBand or card is only unique to you. Only you can access the benefits associated with it, such as linked tickets, FastPass+ experiences and touch-to-pay purchases. Once a MagicBand or card is linked to your Disney account, it cannot be transferred to another person.
That’s everything you need to know about the MagicBands. Be sure to utilize this all-in-one device on your next trip to a Disney theme park. How can you make planning your vacation even easier? Consider booking a trip with our friends at MickeyTravels.
