    I read you can "add a touch of magic" to your magicbands that would do special surprises in the park. We are celebrating my daughter birthday...does the extra magic just happen or do you have to do something to you band?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kiley! Thanks for stopping by and for bringing us such a great question.

    Kiley, you have certainly sparked my curiosity. MagicBands are chock-full of magic and fun surprises for guests wearing them at the parks and throughout the resort. From opening your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Room to allowing you entrance to all theme parks, this wearable technology is as handy as it is cool!

    Some special character and Limited Edition MagicBands will sprinkle audible and visual magic at touchpoints and on certain attractions. At The Haunted Mansion and "it's a small world" at Magic Kingdom, and Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom you might be able to see your name incorporated in the signs in the queue or on the ride. And don’t forget about the attraction videos that will magically appear in your My Disney Experience account after you ride some attractions like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train; all thanks to the magic in your MagicBand. And the only set up you need is your My Disney Experience account updated with your information.

    I searched high and low and even consulted the moms and dads of the panel and they had the same feedback of what we know MagicBands currently do. But you never know what Disney’s Imagineers are up to. They might be working on adding even more interactive magic to MagicBands soon. I for one am super excited to see what spellbinding magic might surprise us next!

    Thanks again for stopping by. Please stop by and see us again for any additional tips or planning advice for your upcoming Disney vacations!
