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

    Is there any word on the release date for MagicBand+? They say summer 2022, but that's already started and there's been no word since May.

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, James!

    Thank you for your excellent question, it would be my honour to assist a fellow Canadian Disney fan today with one of my favourite topics, the MagicBand+ which will be a most interactive, helpful tool enhancing one's visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

    James, it sounds as if you are a loyal fan of the official Disney Parks Blog, and you are absolutely correct about the latest details regarding the MagicBand+ although I am not privy to official release dates, I am confident that this handy little device will make its appearance soon during The World's Most Magical Celebration - The 50th Anniversary! And, if you're a Guest at a Disney Resort Hotel and/or hold a Walt Disney World Annual Pass, then you will have the option to purchase the MagicBand+ at a special, pre-arrival price (subject to change). As a Canadian, your standard MagicBand, or MagicBand+ will be waiting at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort Hotel.

    This next-generation MagicBand+ will not only feature the previously enjoyed MagicBand features, but it will also afford Guests new experiences to take their visit to new heights with my favourite being the interaction with the Walt Disney World Resort Nighttime Spectaculars!

    Have you heard about the Disney MagicMobile pass? Using your My Disney Experience Mobile App and valid, linked theme park admission on your Disney account, you can create a pass to access your theme park admission from the digital wallet on your mobile device, and it even works on Apple Watch devices - all with Disney MagicMobile Service!

    James, may I offer the current Walt Disney World Resort special offers which may interest you for your upcoming visit? There couldn't be a better time to plan a visit, especially during the 50th Anniversary Celebration to sunny Florida. You can also keep a close watch over the periodic Walt Disney World Resort special offers by signing in to your Disney account and accessing the Places to Stay tab on the Main Page. And, don't forget to update your profile on your Disney account to receive any news and potential special offers via Email.

    It was my pleasure assisting you James, let's wish upon that star for those MagicBand+ devices to emerge soon, who knows they might be on their way sooner than we think!

    Best Disney Wishes!
