    What are magic bands for

    Hi Jackie and welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands are wristbands or bracelets that make any Walt Disney World vacation easier and more magical.  They are connected to your My Disney Experience account, so you can unlock your Disney Resort hotel room door, enter theme parks as your admission ticket, make purchases at restaurants and shops that charge back to your room account, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, link PhotoPass photos taken all throughout the parks and more with just a tap of your band.

    When you use a MagicBand, you don't need to keep digging out your park ticket or room key.  Everything is conveniently located right on your wrist.  They are waterproof as well, so you can take them into the pool, water parks or galivanting in the rain.  

    The new MagicBand+ is interactive, so it unlocks extra magic during your visit.  They light up and dance to select fireworks and nighttime entertainment, they interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection and you can become a bounty hunter by playing the interactive game in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    MagicBands come in multiple colors and in a plethora of designs like your favorite character or attraction.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you have the option of purchasing them in advance of your trip at a discount. 

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
