    Will MagicBand2 work on Disney Cruise?

    Ahoy there Jeannette and welcome aboard planDisney. Thank you for asking this shipshape question because DisneyBand+ is some of the best technology brought aboard Disney Cruise Line ships.

    Waterproof DisneyBand+ and MagicBand+ may be used interchangeably while sailing with Disney Cruise Line. After November 20, 2023 (when the Disney Dream has the capability to use DisneyBand+), all ships will allow Guests to board the ship, charge specialty food, beverage, and merchandise items to your folio, link photos, interact with fireworks with different lights and vibrations, and open stateroom doors using DisneyBand+/MagicBand+. Unfortunately, older MagicBands, including MagicBand2, are not supported. Even though Disney Oceaneer Bands (for Guests 12 and under) look like MagicBand2, they do not have the same features as DisneyBand+.

    One thing to note. You will need your Key to the World Card and a Photo ID at Ports of Call.

    planDisney Pro Tip: One of the cruising details I am glad will be replaced with DisneyBand+ is that I will not have to wear a lanyard to carry my Key to the World card everywhere. DisneyBand+/MagicBand+ has it covered so leave your lanyard in the room!

    Jeannette, I hope this information is helpful to you and that you find a rechargeable Disney Cruise Line-themed DisneyBand+ to make your voyage extra enchanted. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
