MagicBand+ Coming to Disneyland Resort This Fall!
We’ve got some exciting news for our West Coast Disney fans! MagicBand+ will be making its momentous debut at “The Happiest Place on Earth” starting this Fall!
For those unfamiliar, the service launched at Walt Disney World Resort earlier this summer, MagicBand+ is a bit of next-generation wearable tech that enables you to see and feel theme park experiences in new ways. Thanks to smart features like color-changing LED lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition.
If you’ve been following along with us here at MickeyBlog, you’ll know that new MagicBand+ styles are being unveiled every week making this a fantastic way to also show off your personal style at the parks. The new MagicBands+ are also rechargeable and come with a charging cable) and are waterproof.
MagicBand+ also pairs with your smartphone via the Disneyland app which means more personalization options (including picking your own unique light colors, adjusting vibration and motion recognition settings.)
Disney has just released a new video showing off some of the awesome MagicBand+ features. Check it out:
As you can see, MagicBand+ will boast a host of helpful capabilities including the ability to link your MagicBand+ to your theme park ticket or Magic Key pass in the Disneyland app for a convenient way to enter the theme parks. You can also use it to check in at Lightning Lane entrances (separate valid Lightning Lane entry required.) With a tap of your MagicBand+ you can also capture all your Disney PhotoPass vacation photos and have them stored on your Disneyland app.
Oh, and the band also syncs up with special Disneyland moments including nighttime spectaculars where your MagicBand+ will complement the magic with pulsing, colorful dancing lights and vibrations. This includes World of Color at Disney California Adventure and Fantasmic! at Disneyland Resort.
Star Wars fans will also want to take your MagicBand+ to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and participate in the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters interactive questions. Vibrations and lights from your MagicBand+ will help guide you toward virtual bounties across Black Spire Outpost. When you find your bounty you can use the “augmented reality thermal view” on the Play Disney Parks app and find out who has been hiding in the shadows. Complete your assigned mission and local guild master Raga Bua will reward you with galactic credits.
We’ve also got a feeling that this is just the beginning. Disney has been vocal regarding their commitment to continue to grow MagicBand+ capabilities. We can’t wait to see what’s to come!
