    When will magic band + be offered to resort guests

    Hiya Barbara! Welcome back to planDisney. We’re so glad you stopped by with another question.

    Oh my goodness, your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is less than two short weeks away! Can you believe it's finally here?! You must be getting so excited; I know I would be! Did you know that your visit lines up with the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival? Just wait until you try the incredible food from the many global marketplaces featuring cuisine from all over the world. I definitely recommend checking out the Foodie Guide on Disney Parks Blog for a sneak peek of the festival menu. Also, when you get there, be sure to pick up a Festival Passport that will break down each food offering and its location, ensuring you don't miss out on any of the good stuff!

    I am SO excited for the release of the new MagicBand+! I had a chance to preview this fantastic new offering at an event earlier this year, and I can tell you that it truly is as cool as it sounds! There are so many fabulous ways that MagicBand+ will enhance your day at Walt Disney World, like how it vibrates and lights up in sync with nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT. Who would have thought there would be a way to make these incredible shows even MORE magical? Not me! Perhaps my favorite part is how you’ll get be able to interact with the awesome golden sculptures of the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection. When you spot one of these gorgeous sculptures, all you need to do is wave your MagicBand+ around, and you’ll hear a message from your favorite Disney characters! How cool is that?

    So, while we do know that MagicBand+ is coming this summer, unfortunately, we don’t have an official release date. So, I would definitely recommend keeping an eye on Disney Parks Blog for the most up-to-date information on when MagicBand+ will be available for purchase. Also, since your visit is just around the corner, you might also want to check out the fantastic shops around the parks while you’re there. This way, if they do happen to be released while you’re there, you can grab one before the end of your trip! I know I can’t wait to get my hands on one!

    Barbara, I know the last few weeks ahead of any trip can be exciting but also a bit hectic as you iron out all of those trip details and ensure you are ready to take off on the adventure of a lifetime. Well, rest assured, we are here to spread a little pixie dust to help make your trip experience as enjoyable as possible. It is vacation, after all! So please, please don’t hesitate to reach out again with any questions in the day leading up to your trip!

    Until next time,
