    What is the magic wrist band?

    Hi, Susana!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for your great question! MagicBands are flexible, waterproof wristbands made of a smooth rubberized (non-latex, allergy-friendly) material. They are fully adjustable and fit a wide range of wrist sizes. 

    MagicBands function as convenient all-in-one devices for vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort, serving as theme park admission tickets and Resort hotel room keys. These colorful wristbands also enable you to purchase food and merchandise and access your pre-selected FastPass+ experiences as well as your Disney PhotoPass images.  

    When my family visited Walt Disney World Resort this past month (November 2013), we customized our MagicBands online (with our names and favorite color choices) and received them at our home address several weeks prior to our departure. We found our MagicBands to be very comfortable and convenient to use. My 7-year-old daughter loved touching her MagicBand to the round sensors and watching the Mickey Head and circle turn green!    

    At the current time, Guests who have made a reservation at an on-property Disney Resort hotel are eligible to receive MagicBands. If you are planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort in the coming months, I recommend that you start by setting up your online My Disney Experience account to access a number of helpful vacation planning tools. You may also want to download the free My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Wishing you a Magical New Year!
