    Does the magic band work on Disney Dream?

    Hey there, ahoy there Michael, and welcome to planDisney. We have waited a long time to have the conveniences of MagicBands work on Disney Cruise Line ships. This new added touch of wearable, waterproof technology is the perfect enchantment for a magical journey and it all occurs with the tap of your wrist.

    On November 20, 2023, the Disney Dream will join the Disney Fantasy, Disney Magic, and Disney Wish allowing Guests the convenience of using DisneyBand+ and MagicBand+. The benefits of boarding your ship on embarkation day, opening your stateroom door, charging specialty food and beverages to your stateroom folio, and entertainment interactions, along with hands-free usage on the ship and Castaway Cay make this an excellent souvenir and magical assistant. No need to carry your Key to the World Card with you around the ship. Please note that classic MagicBands including the original and MagicBand2 do not have any benefits aboard for most Guests. Older MagicBands may be seen aboard but they are used for Disney's Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab. These may be assigned at the beginning of the trip but are not needed if your 12-year-old and younger voyager has a DisneyBand+ or MagicBand+.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Even though MagicBand+ and DisneyBand+ have snap locks I find it best to use my MagicBand slider to help "lock" the straps in place.

    Michael, I hope your voyages always have bright suns and cooling breezes upon Disney Cruise Line ships. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories on the high seas.
