    We leave for our first Disney cruise in 2 weeks. I have Magic Bands (not +) from our parks visit in Oct. 2021. Will I be able to use these on the ship? (We are traveling on the Wish and have been given the opportunity to purchase the new DisneyBand+).

    Hi Stephanie,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! You must be so excited to be just days away from your Disney Cruise Line vacation. I’m glad you stopped by with your question.

    Guests sailing aboard the Disney Wish will be able to use DisneyBand+ or MagicBand+ during their sailings. Since you have the MagicBand (rather than the MagicBand+) you cannot use your current bands aboard the ship. While DisneyBand+ is not a necessity for sailing, you can decide if you would like to purchase one. Unfortunately, it appears that your window for purchasing it at the pre-sailing price may have passed, but you can still purchase special Disney Cruise Line designs aboard the ship. 

    Some of the magical features of a DisneyBand+ include being able to enter your stateroom and Kids' Clubs and pay for merchandise hands-free. DisneyBand+ also makes it easier to capture your photos while on board. There are also special interactions around the ship! Also, DisneyBand+ can be used at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort

    Stephanie, there is so much to love about the Disney Wish. I highly recommend taking the Walking the Wish tour, which shares some of the impressive technology and magical touches that went into the making of the Disney Wish. Just check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App when you board for the time and meeting location. In the meantime, you can explore this beautiful ship in this planDisney Pocket Guide to the Disney Wish!

    Thanks for cruising by, Stephanie. Please let us know if you have any other questions or need any tips for making the most of your vacation.

    May all your wishes come true,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. 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. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
