    What is the width size of the wristband?

    Hello, Michael!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so excited that you asked about MagicBand+ because it's one of my favorite new things to use when I visit the Disneyland Resort. My kids love theirs, too! I'm happy to grab one of my own bands to get you some specific measurements.

    The official measurements for MagicBand+ bands are 10 1/2" long, 1" wide, and about 1/4" thick. With some closer examination of my own band, I can tell you that the widest part of the band is the "face" where the lights and haptics happen. That section of the band is actually 1 1/2" wide. The band that goes around your wrist is pretty close to 1" wide. While the band is initially 10 1/2" long, you do have the option to tear away part of the band (this is permanent!) to make it shorter. The shortened length (which my kids and I both wear) is about 8" long.  

    You may already have looked at the shopDisney website to find a MagicBand+ design that you love. But you can also purchase a band when you arrive at the Disneyland Resort, and some designs are exclusive to the parks! Each band comes with a charging cable with a USB connector, so if you purchase a band at the park you can use a portable battery to charge it up. Make sure you don't accidentally throw away the charging cable, it's in the packaging behind the band!

    There are so many fun things to do with a MagicBand+ at Disneyland Resort! Once you link it to your ticket in the Disneyland Mobile App you can use it to "tap in" at the parks and access Lightning Lane entrances if you're using Disney Genie+ service. If you take a picture with a Disney PhotoPass Photographer they can tap your band to add the photo to your account. And then there are special interactions with some of the Disney100 decorations, the shows, and some attractions! One of my favorite MagicBand+ moments is when you exit the Haunted Mansion...but I won't spoil it for you! Just pay attention to any sympathetic vibrations you may notice when you say goodbye to your Ghost Host and leave the mansion!  

    I'm glad I was able to measure my band for you, Michael. I hope you'll have a wonderful visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    Keep moving forward!
