MagicBands at Walt Disney World

What are MagicBands?

MagicBands are waterproof devices worn on your wrist. They are all-in-one bands that serve as your theme park and water park tickets, your Disney Resort room key, FastPasses and more. 

How Do You Get MagicBands?

Right now, Disney is in a testing period, so if you're invited to participate, our agents can walk you through the Disney website (StartYourDisneyExperience.com) to "link up" your MagicBands with your resort reservation and the theme park and/or water park tickets you've already purchased. Eventually, the test period will end and all Disney Resort guests will use MagicBand.

*TIP* You can choose the color of your MagicBand and the name that appears on the band. Pink, blue, green...your kids will love it. 

When Will The MagicBands Arrive?
Once you've requested MagicBands, they'll arrive at your home at least three days prior to your Disney Resort arrival date.

Don't pack your MagicBands in your luggage! You'll need the MagicBands as soon as you arrive to be able to ride the Magical Express from the airport to your Disney Resort. So, be sure to wear them while you travel and all throughout your stay.

What Are MagicBands Used For?

1. As your Disney Resort Room Key. You don't need to remove the band, simply hold the band against the door reader to enter.
2. They work as your Theme Park and/or Water Park Tickets, depending on which ticket package you've purchased. 
(*TIP* MagicBands are waterproof - great feature when you visit the water parks!)
3. If you set up Charging Privileges with a credit card, you can use your MagicBand to buy food and merchandise at the parks or resorts.  
4. FastPass+. This is such a cool feature! You can select FastPass+ attractions and shows in advance, or if you've already made your selections, you can update your selections at any time.

How Do MagicBands Work? 

Hold your MagicBand up to the "Mickey" reader to enter the parks, your resort room or to access the FastPass+ queue line at your favorite attraction. 

How Can I View My Dining Info, Check or Change FastPass Times and More?

View and make changes to your information on the MyDisneyExperience.com home page on your laptop or SmartPhone. The app is free to download so you can have the world at your fingertips on your vacation!

This is a lot of information to comprehend - so feel free to ask us any questions. Many of our agents are in Walt Disney World right now using the new MagicBands, so they'll have the latest news, tips and tricks to make sure you don't miss a thing.
