Mom and Child wearing Magic Bands

    Ahmad from MD Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I got my resorts and Disney World tickets already purchase (Disney Go app is somewhat difficult to navigate). I have a question on the MagicBand + What is the perk for these band's? I'm debating if I need to get one or not.

    Hey there, hi there, Ahmad. Welcome, and thanks so much for your question.

    You can count down the days now to your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, and that's pretty exciting, and so is the new technology behind Disney's MagicBand+. As much as I loved the previous version, the new MagicBand+ really steps up the game.

    The new bands include LED lights that change colors and look pretty neat. Using the tappable icon, you can change the colors or experiences. Another pretty cool feature is the ability to recharge the band, so you won't need to worry about replacing it in between trips. You'll find this version has haptic vibrations, hand gesture recognition, and it can pair with your smartphone.

    You'll still be able to use this MagicBand+ to enter your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room, scan into the theme parks, and access attractions you've got Disney's Genie+ or Individual Lightning Lane lined up for. Using the MagicBand+ will give you automatic ride photo recognition, and there are games and interactive activities you can discover in the theme parks.

    The previous generation of MagicBands is still available, and you can always use a Key to the World Card. But the new bands are seriously fun, and with that recharging ability, a great souvenir.

    Thanks for stopping by, Ahmad!
