    Do the magicbandits work the same as the magicbands?

    Hi there Ryan,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I absolutely love collecting MagicBands. This wearable piece of technology connects easily to your My Disney Experience account. MagicBands are more than just a colorful bracelet, they unlock the door to your room if you are a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. You can enter a water or theme park with linked admission. You can redeem your FastPass+ selections at attraction touch points and connect PhotoPass photos to your Memory Maker account. As a Resort Hotel guest, you can charge food and merchandise back to your room.

    The MagicBands are embedded with an RFID battery-powered chip that is linked to your My Disney Experience account. You can decorate your MagicBand with sliders or MagicBandits. A MagicBandit does not have the technology within it to complete the same actions as a MagicBand. They are decorations that can be added to your MagicBand to give it some flair. You can purchase MagicBandits at the Walt Disney World Resort anywhere MagicBands are sold. I hope that answers your questions. If you need any more help, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
