    Will we be able to use our current MagicBand+ as a surrogate for the new Disney Cruise Line DisneyBand+, or will we need to specifically purchase a DisneyBand+ for the cruise in addition to our MagicBand+ for the parks?

    Hi there, Paul! Thank you for trusting planDisney with your Disney vacation planning questions. I am thrilled that Disney Cruise Line is debuting DisneyBand+ this summer aboard the Disney Wish. I’m happy to help you navigate this new technology.

    As someone who frequents Walt Disney World Resort, I know you are familiar with all the perks of MagicBand+. Disney Cruise Line is adopting the same helpful features – like opening your stateroom door and paying for purchases – but calling the wearable band a new name: DisneyBand+.

    I’m happy to share that your Walt Disney World Resort MagicBand+ can be used as a DisneyBand+ and vice versa. It might sound topsy-turvy, but I promise we’ll all get the hang of it in no time! The preview is taking place on the Disney Wish this summer, with the other ships adopting DisneyBand+ at a later date. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as more information is announced. 

    I hope you’re one of the lucky Guests who get to preview DisneyBand+. Before you set sail for adventure, you might enjoy listening to episodes of the planDisney podcast. There’s a treasure trove of information about Disney Cruise Line, Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Please return to planDisney with any additional questions. We can’t wait to help! 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
