    Do you wear your magicband 24/7?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    When my family visits Walt Disney World, we love how the MagicBands simplify so much of what we do. But no, we don't wear them all day long. Especially now with the new MagicBand+ bands, which need to be recharged overnight, we only wear them for part of the day.

    But when do we wear them?

    Well, obviously when we are in the theme parks or the water parks we are all sporting our bands. We also tend to keep them on when we are back at our resort pool. This helps if we want to charge a drink or a snack from the pool bar to our room account. Also, since the MagicBand can serve as a key to our room, we wear them when we are exploring our resort. 

    We typically put them on in the morning before heading to the parks, and then at night we plug them in to charge back up for another day of magic!

    BONUS TIP #1
    I would strongly recommend you get a MagicBand+ for each person in your party. Some of the interactive features can be a lot of fun, like using them to participate in the Batuu Bounty Hunters quest in Disney's Hollywood Studios. All the other features, like key less room entry, charging capabilities, and ticket media access, also are a wonderful convenience.

    BONUS TIP #2
    The MagicBand+ charging cable uses a USB-A plug. Most Disney Resort Hotels have appropriate outlets for these chargers, but it is worth checking if you have a way to plug it in at night.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
