Disney retiring complimentary MagicBand distribution

As you begin planning your upcoming visits, Disney is 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.

In 2021, Disney plans to unveil an innovative new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will bring features of a MagicBand to your smart devices, building on the app’s existing digital key feature.

With this new offering on the horizon, Disney will be retiring their complimentary MagicBand distribution to Disney Resort hotel guests for new reservations with arrivals beginning Jan. 1, 2021.

Disney Resort hotel guests will continue to have the option to purchase new MagicBands at a discount, and they will be introducing even more colors and designs featuring favorite Disney characters in the future.

Guests who prefer not to purchase a discounted MagicBand will be able to use the My Disney Experience app or a Key to the World card during their visit. Disney will still offer MagicBands in retail locations and on shopDisney.com, and guests will be able to continue using the wearables throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

  1. Even with WiFi I find my phone battery is drained quickly in the parks. Hope they can resolve this issue before they cut us off. Don’t like using my phone for everything, it’s just super inconvient.

  2. There area few hotel chains that allow you to enter your room using your cell phone, this is not new technology and I can see Disney implementing it.
