    Are the magicbands that you get from the hotel magicbands 1 or magicbands 2?

    Hi Christy,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I just received MagicBands for my first Walt Disney World visit of the year, and they are the newly redesigned MagicBands. It is my understanding that guests at Disney resorts will all be getting the new MagicBands now.

    Even though the design is different and features an icon disc that can be removed and worn on a lanyard or carabiner as an alternative to the bracelet, the function of the MagicBand remains the same. You'll still use them to access your tickets, your room, your FastPass+ reservations and more. 

    Thanks for your question, Christy. Please check back with us any time if we can help with your vacation planning. Enjoy!
