    hello kirsten what is a MagicBand or Card and can i get one. cost it extra???? i want to do it all in wdw. i wish i can take you with me as my personal guide lol. thank you

    Hi Edwin!

    It's great to see that you have so many questions about all the new technology. We're very excited about it here at the Moms Panel as well!

    MagicBands are a new technology currently in the 'testing phases' at Walt Disney World. They're part of a collection of "tools" called MyMagic+ which will enhance the Guest Experience at the resort. I've included a link to an article on the Disney Parks Blog for you to read. It shows Guests using and wearing the bands and describes a little more more about the amazing things that these bands will do once they're fully released. Be sure to visit the link and read more about it. 

    The MagicBand will not cost extra for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.
    I hope that you might be lucky enough to use them during the time of your visit! At this time, an official release date has not yet been announced. If you wish, you can inquire about them when you check in to your resort or at Guest Services in the parks.

    Please be sure to write me back after your trip and let me know if you were lucky to get to use them during your visit! I'd love to hear about your experiences! I've really enjoyed assisting you from afar with all of the aspects of planning your trip. We've known each other for quite a long time now haven't we? It would be so great if the Moms Panel were able to meet and be personal tour guides for great Guests like yourself Edwin! What a fun idea!

    Please feel free to write again before your visit if you think of additional questions.
    Wishing you safe travels and an absolutely Magical vacation!
