    I see that we can now use previously purchased Magic Bands on the Disney Cruise ships! Does this include regular Magic Bands or will only Magic Band+ work on the cruises?

    Hi Kathryn,

    Welcome back to planDisney! We are happy to see you again and glad to see you have another Disney Cruise Line vacation in your future. 

    You will be glad to know you can add your MagicBand+ to your packing list as they include the same technology as DisneyBand+. Unfortunately, regular MagicBands are not interchangeable with DisneyBand+. I love using a DisneyBand+ or MagicBand+ onboard! The hands-free convenience of opening your stateroom door while juggling purchases made at Mickey's Mainsail is a lifesaver. And speaking of purchases, a DisneyBand+ is the perfect shopping companion with just a flick of the wrist. And one of the best surprises is how the band will notify you of special events onboard and the lights and haptics make every celebration brighter. 

    Kathryn, you can purchase a Disney Cruise Line-themed DisneyBand+ before your cruise and have it shipped to your home. Be sure to charge it (or your existing MagicBand+) before you sail so it is ready to go from the moment you enter the port terminal. If you are like me and use a different MagicBand each day of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation (to match your outfit, of course!), keep in mind you may only link one band while on your Disney Cruise Line sailing, so leave the other bands at home to save room in your suitcase to bring other souvenirs home.

    Sail by any time with other questions, Kathryn!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
