    What is the difference between magic band and magic band 2. In the pictures one looks smaller. Do they all fit small kids.

    Hi Robert,
    Thanks for bringing your MagicBand and MagicBand+ questions to us here at planDisney!  I just ordered a MagicBand+ for myself and have been doing a little extra research for my next trip to Walt Disney World Resort. So, your timing is perfect to discover how MagicBand+ can plus-up your upcoming vacation. Let’s take a look at a few of the pixie-dusted features!

    For starters, MagicBand and MagicBand+ both serve as your “key to the kingdom” during your Walt Disney World Resort stay by keeping you connected with the magical plans you made in the My Disney Experience app.  They allow Guests touch point access for theme park entry (with valid admission and park reservation), Lightning Lane selection redemption and to link those precious Disney PhotoPass photos. For Guests staying at a 
    Walt Disney World Resorts Collection Hotel, you can also unlock your room door and charge dining and merchandise purchases to the credit card on file in your account.

    Now, Robert, let me tell you a bit about a few more magical touches that MagicBand+ offers you during your vacation. During Night Spectaculars throughout Walt Disney World, your MagicBand+ will light up with a synchronized performance right on your wrist! And I’m excited that you will be visiting Walt Disney World while the 50th Anniversary Celebration is still in progress so you can interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection with a MagicBand+. If intergalactic bounty hunting is your jam, you can use your MagicBand+ to capture virtual bounties in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. MagicBand+ has a rechargeable battery that helps to power its magic and a charging cord is supplied with your purchase.

    You are very observant, Robert, because the MagicBand touchpoint face is a little smaller than the MagicBand+. But never fear, both MagicBand and MagicBand+ can easily be adjusted to fit the wrist of young Mousketeers! Simple-to-follow instructions to adjust the size of the band are included with each MagicBand and MagicBand+.

    One final tip: If you are staying in a Disney Resort Hotel, you can pre-purchase your MagicBand+ at a special pre-arrival price through your My Disney Experience, which saves you just enough to purchase more of your favorite snacks!

    Robert, I hope this information gives you some new ideas for your upcoming vacation. If there are other ways we can help make your visit practically perfect, please stop back by, we are happy to help! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,

A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney.
