Prior to the reopening of Walt Disney World, Disney Parks shared that the future of MagicBands may be a little less magical. 

In June 2020 Walt Disney World shared, “As you begin planning your upcoming visits, we’re also exploring engaging ways for guests to use their mobile tech to experience the magic- particularly now as the use of phones and apps continues to evolve.” You can read more about this HERE.

Disney Resort Guests may still purchase the solid colored MagicBands that were previously available complimentary for a fee of $5. Specialty MagicBands will continue to be offered to Disney Resort Guests at a discount as well. Check out a few of the newest MagicBands HERE. MagicBands will also still be available for purchase on shopDisney and at Disney retail locations.

Anytime Disney wants to introduce a new product they like to add a + to the end of the title it seems. Today, we just received news that MagicBand is still very much magical and now more so than ever before. 

MagicBand+ will allow Guests to interact with the Fab50 character statues that can now be found in ALL 4 of the Theme Parks.  This newly designed band will also light up and even vibrate depending on where you are located in the Parks.

Disney Resort Guests can enjoy a pre-arrival price and Annual Passholders will receive this special pricing as well. Currently MagicBands will continue to be available for use and they are even rechargeable. 

Today at the Destination D23 event we were so excited to hear from Josh D’Amaro. As soon as he greeted Guests, I noticed that he was wearing the brand new MagicBand.
