    We are using the "Summer Awakens" discount. I know it had a special magic band, but can I get a different one for myself (Winnie the Pooh:)) and will it have the same special effects?

    Hi Jodie,

    You are in for some fun when summer Awakens at Walt Disney World Resort. A few more months!

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will have new nighttime experiences, including Rivers of Light, the newest spectacular show that truly celebrates nature. The Tree of Life will come alive and you cannot miss to explore Kilimanjaro Safaris during sunset.

    Frozen Ever After is coming to Epcot at the Norway Pavilion. Meet Anna, Elsa and their friends on this new family friendly adventure.  And later meet the sisters, and be ready for your best pose for pictures, at the Royal Sommerhus.

    And if the Force runs strong in your family, you cannot miss all the Star Wars happenings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. At Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple, younglins face their fear, and have a chance to battle Darth Vader himself, and the Seventh Sister Inquisitor. Star Tours – The Adventure Continues will take you to a special all-new destination, based on the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens. At Star Wars Launch Bay you’ll have the opportunity to see replicas and props from the movies, encounter Kylo Ren himself, and meet Chewbacca.

    The current Awaken Summer promotion includes a special MagicBand, and it will make some magic at special touch points in the park. Unfortunately, you cannot substitute it for other special MagicBands. All MagicBands can be linked to your My Disney experience, and they can carry your tickets and reservations, open your resort hotel room, and allow you to charge purchases to your resort hotel folio. 

    Hope you have a wonderful summer vacation. In the meantime, if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
