This is something I am so excited about, last time we went to Disney we had cards which were great. However Disney have recently released the MagicBand, a wrist band that holds all the information you need for your Walt Disney World Holiday, this really takes convenience to the next level.
It really is incredible, with the MagicBand you can;
- Access your room, It is Programmed as your room key, so no need to carry an additional key
- Access the parks and water parks with your band with valid theme park admission
- Charge all purchases to your account via your MagicBand
- Access your fastpass+ choices by scanning your band at fast pass machines
- Access all your photo pass photos and memory maker photos
- Access dining plan credits for the Disney Dining Plan
What I also love, and only found out the other day is that you can personalise your MagicBand. When traveling from the UK your bands are ready when you check into your Disney hotel. But you can pre-order the colour of your band and even have it personalised with your name or initials from home, then once in the parks you can purchase MagicBandits to decorate your bands.
Here is how to personalise you MagicBands on My Disney Experience
Log into My Disney Experience and under My Account click onto MagicBands and Cards, it will them ask for a shipping address. Complete this form, however if you are in the UK they will still be collected from your WDW resort.
You can now choose the colour of your band and how you would like your name to appear.
The MagicBand is fantastic, so easy to use and because you wear it, you always know where it is, rather than worrying about which pocket your pass card is in. It saves you carrying numerous keys, cards and you only need to carry minimal cash. Traveling light is a real bonus on a long day in the parks. And even better it is so cute. I can not wait to get mine and customise with Magic Bandits. See my Pinterest board for a few ideas of MagicBandits and customised covers available, oooh i just can’t decide what to go for there is so much choice.
