    Will both magic bands and magic bands + work on the Disney Wish this summer? We own these already so do not want to purchase a Disney band too just for the ship.

    Hi John,

    It's great to "sea" you here at planDisney, and I'm happy to assist.

    DisneyBand+ is an exciting new technology available to Disney Cruise Line guests sailing on Disney Wish. Not only will it streamline the embarkation process at US ports, but you'll also be able to open your stateroom door and make purchases around the ship with ease using your band. This technology debuted right after my family sailed on Disney Wish earlier this year so while we haven't had the chance to try it out just yet, we're excited to access these features on future sailings.

    I'm happy to report that if you already own a MagicBand+ you will be able to use it onboard Disney Wish. Unfortunately, the original MagicBands will not work on the ship. I've already been able to use my MagicBand+ at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, and I'm really looking forward to being able to use it at another Disney destination.

    I'll admit, I'm always tempted by exclusive band designs so I may still end up purchasing a nautical themed DisneyBand+ to add to my collection. If you decide to do the same, you'll have the opportunity to purchase one from 11-45 days before your upcoming cruise, while supplies last, by visiting "My Reservations." You can also review the selections available once you've set sail. 

    John, there's so much magic in store for you on your upcoming cruise. Be sure to visit Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge during your voyage for some out-of-this-world libations. My husband and I were mesmerized watching our server create otherworldly drinks right before our eyes. We also really enjoyed our adult dining experience at Enchanté, and I can't recommend the meal and venue highly enough. If you're looking to be dazzled, that's the place to be!

    If you need any additional assistance as you prepare for your sailing feel free to come back and visit us again with more questions. We're always all hands on deck here!

    Bon voyage,
