    Is the MagicBand+ waterproof when swimming at the WDW resort pools?

    Hey there, Alexandra! Welcome to planDisney! I'm absolutely thrilled to hear that you're planning a magical trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth in September! It's a fantastic time to visit because the weather is lovely, and the crowds are usually more manageable. I just know that you and your party will have the most amazing time and create unforgettable memories.

    Now, let's get right to your question – yes, the new MagicBand+ is waterproof, so you can use it in pools and on water rides. I've personally tested them in all sorts of conditions, and they are super durable. I'm a big fan of their designs and have quite the collection myself! They're perfect for all the fun you'll have at the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Resorts Collection hotels.

    I'm also happy to tell you that the previous model, the classic MagicBand, is also waterproof and comes in many different designs, available across the parks, resorts, and on the Disney Store.

    The main differences between the two models are that the new MagicBand+ is rechargeable and can be used indefinitely, while the classic option has a battery that lasts about two to three years, depending on use. Plus, the new model can unlock special interactive experiences throughout the theme parks. My favorite feature is how it lights up and syncs with nighttime shows like Happily Ever After, Fantasmic!, and Luminous The Symphony of Us, making the experience even more enchanting and immersive.

    Alexandra, I hope this info helps with your planning. Please feel free to come back anytime and ask more questions about your upcoming September trip. We're always here to help out a friend like you!
