MagicBands are your Key to unlocking the magic.. literally! It is your Resort Key, your Disney ticket, your fast passes, photo pass, you can even make purchases with it! And it’s all Magic… (Maybe with the help of a sensor and chip, but we will stick with Magic). Find out all the power this colorful wristband holds! When you book a Disney Vacation, you get to personalize MagicBands for everyone in the party. You can pick a color and chose a name. You receive them usually, within 3-4 Weeks prior to your arrival. This is your Key to unlock the magic.. literally! It is your Resort Key! Your Disney ticket, your fast pass, you can even make purchases with it! All by simply pressing your MagicBand against a sensor.

With the convenience of the MagicBand you don’t have to keep track of your resort key, Money, Credit/debit card, Park tickets, or paper fast passes!  Once you personalize your band, you can put a card on file for purchases for merchandise and food while at Walt Disney Resort. Once you get to the resort, you could even do Online Check In and be notified when your room is ready and go right to your room since you have the Key! Don’t forget to wear it to the parks! All you have to do is hold it up to the sensor at the gates and Magic! You’re in! (special events too!) Same as Fast Passes. Walk up to your attraction at your designated Fast Pass time, and use your MagicBand again! You can even use it with your Disability Access Service now! After pictures, the photopass photographer will scan your band. Like Magic.. it’ll load to your MDE now. Even after rides! Basically all you need for your Disney trip is your MagicBand and your My Disney Experience!  And YES, you can reuse them!

Some extra tips.. They are “One Size” but you can peel the colored part of the band off and make it smaller if it doesn’t fit your child.(Keep in mind, once you do that, there’s no turning back!) You can even customize your MagicBand, Buy special event ones, character ones, use covers, buy stickers or sleeves or even get really creative and pull out the paint or fingernail polish!

Whether you are matching your outfits or showing off your personality, do it style and behold the power you have on your wrist. Remember.. it’s Magic.
