Disney’s newest MagicBand, MagicBand+, is the newest piece of interactive technology that will take your trip to Disney World to the next level. This new MagicBand will allow Guests to interact with the Fab50 character statues that can now be found in ALL 4 of the Theme Parks.  

This band will also light up and even vibrate depending on where you are located in the Parks. Check out this video while interacting with Fab50 statues HERE.

There is so much to see and explore at Batuu. Not only is there a fully-immersive 2-day experience, but Galaxy’s Edge has attractions, restaurants, and shopping. Get ready to take it to the next level with MagicBand+.

“Using their MagicBand+ to find numerous virtual bounties hidden throughout Black Spire Outpost, guests will follow the band’s light patterns and haptics to complete their mission.”

Testing of Batuu Bounty Hunters Experience

Last night during an Earidescent Evening event, Cast Member Zach shares his experience testing out the new MagicBand+ in the Black Squires Outpost.

Once guests are assigned they can make their way through Batuu scanning at different outposts. If the MagicBand+ lights up red this indicates that they are cool and have not found their target. If the MagicBand+ lights up green, they have found their target.

Once you have secured your bounty, you may then turn this in for credits at the Guild Master. The Guild Master appears and assigns credits with the instruction that more credits will need to be obtained to join the Bounty Hunters Guild.

This looks like an AMAZING interactive experience for Star Wars fans. At this time, Disney has not shared a release date for the new MagicBand+. We hope that this testing with Cast Members may be a positive sign that they will be available for guests soon.
