The Walt Disney Travel Company has been bringing theme park travel into the future this year with all of the recent advancements and enhancements to their tech. First we saw the release of the Disney Genie and the Disney Genie + which provides guests with enhanced park experiences and digital ways to reserve ride times. Now we are finally seeing the much anticipated release of the MagicBand +.
What Is MagicBand +
Enjoy all of the features you’ve come to love with MagicBand—plus so much more with the release of the MagicBand +! MagicBand + will still allow you to:
- Enter theme and water parks (with valid admission).
- Check in at Lightning Lane and virtual queue entrances.
- Connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account.
- Unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room.
- Charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room during your hotel stay.
But now, with the release of the MagicBand +, it will also allow guests to immerse themselves in Disney stories using the exciting new features of MagicBand+. Debuting as part of the 50th Anniversary celebration, MagicBand+ lets you engage with Disney moments like never before as it reacts to park interactions with lighting effects and gesture recognition. Discover fun interactive experiences throughout the four theme parks. Use your band to become a bounty hunter and collect bounties in the Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Gesture recognition—your movement enables magical surprises, including unique interactions with the 50th anniversary celebration statues throughout the 4 theme parks.
Guests will marvel when their bands light up in conjunction with the fireworks shows- Harmonious in EPCOT and Enchantment in the Magic Kingdom. Haptic vibrations let you feel the magic with light vibrations that bring experiences to life
So far only solid colored MagicBands are available beginning at $29.99. We anticipate specialty or character bands to be released eventually and those should likely run at a higher price point.
