Disney is selecting a certain number of Passholders at random to select and customize their very own Magicband. They will have the ability to schedule 3 Fastpasses in advance, for one park per day. They will be able to select 7 days of Fastpass+ selections for a 60 day period. Those participating in the test will be able to make their FastPass+ selections by using the My Disney Experience app or at a FastPass+ kiosk in the park.
Annual Passholders will also be given a discount card to go along with their Magicband to get the Passholders discounts. The card will be gold or black. The gold card means parking is included in your pass. The black card means that parking is not included in your pass.
Keep in mind this testing is very limited right now.
If you are an annual passholder and link you AP to the My Disney Experience you will get a Magic Band as long as you are staying on Disney Property. Chip told me the grey Magic Band in the image above is his and he is a Annual Passholder, so while this is cool if you have an AP and stayed at a resort this isn’t huge news.
What do you think? Speaking as a Passholder, I think it’s about time!
