Disney Magicbands – 5 things you need to know

Disney Magicbands are created especially for Walt Disney World Resort and help you unlock the Disney Magic! They are a great way to secure yourself an awesome personalized Disney experience. Here are 5 things you need to know about Disney Magicbands and how to get the best of them:


  1. What is a Disney Magicband?

A Disney Magicband is a secure all-in-one device that is aimed at helping you engage, through the My Disney Experience Mobile app as well as your Disney plans and vacation choices at the Walt Disney World Resort. The band itself is waterproof and looks pretty much like a wristwatch or a bracelet. It’s awesome!


  1. What colors do Disney Magicbands come in?

You can choose from a wide variety of colorful Magicbands. These are your color choices (solid colors): pink, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, blue and gray – that’s a total of 8 color choices to suit all tastes!


  1. How to get a Magicband?

If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel in Florida or you are a Walt Disney World Resort Passholder, you will receive your Magicband automatically. If you are not a Passholder or you’re not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you will receive a card instead (right after you purchase park admission). In this case, you can purchase your MagicBand at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks or online at DisneyStore.com.


  1. What can I use my Magicband for?
  • Your Magicband unlocks the door of your Disney Resort hotel room.
  • You use it to enter theme and water parks (with valid admission, of course).
  • Use it to check in at FastPass+ entrances.
  • It easily connects Disney PhotoPass images to your account.
  • It is used to charge food and purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room (available during your hotel stay).
  • Add a touch of magic to your vacation! It unlocks special surprises, personalized just for you, throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!


  1. Can I personalize my Magicband?

Yes, you can customize your Magicband with your name and favorite color within 6 days of your visit! Customizing your MagicBand is super easy. Plus, it’s fun and a great way to set you apart from other Magicband holders!


Here are a few notes, though:


  • Disney Resort hotel guests and Walt Disney World Passholders can personalize their MagicBand order at least 11 days prior to their arrival at Walt Disney World Resort!
  • MagicBands that are purchased in the park or Disney Springs won’t have printed names, but you can choose your preferred color.
  • You name is printed on the inside of your Magicband (for privacy reasons).
