    Can you still have magic bands without the magic bands +

    Hiya Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by!

    Let me start by saying, my Disney vacation does not start until I have my MagicBand on my wrist. My motto is, "never leave home without one"! There is something magical about being able to use it for just about everything. I don't need to carry my wallet, a room key, or park tickets with me at any time. The MagicBand can do it all. Now with the introduction of MagicBand+, you can even use them to have additional fun around the parks.

    Jennifer, you'll be happy to know that you can still use your current MagicBands at the Walt Disney World Resort. Even with the recently debuted MagicBand+, MagicBands are still being sold and can be used just how they always have been. I am not a fan of carrying around bulky items in my pockets, so having a band on my wrist that takes care of many things is a great luxury to have. 

    I'm not sure if you had a chance to check out the new features of MagicBand+, but they are incredibly magical. They allow you to be a part of the story to an entirely new level. You are able to unlock enchanting interactions throughout many areas of the parks. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a prime example of this as well as any of the golden statues you find as part of the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection. Your MagicBand+ will also come alive during the nighttime spectaculars, so make sure you have them on when watching the shows. 

    Jennifer, I hope you have the most magical holiday to date. I would continue to follow the Disney Parks Blog for any news and announcements regarding MagicBands. Since your visit is still over a year away, you never know what changes can occur in that time frame. 

    Happy planning!
