MagicBands are now your key to Disney World. If you have never used them before or need to brush up on your information, this post is for you. Here are 10 Things Every Guest Should Know About MagicBands.
- MagicBands are free for Disney World Resort guests or Annual PassHolders. Customize your MagicBand through My Disney Experience (at least 14 days prior to arrival date), and they will be shipped to you prior to your vacation.
- If your vacation is less than 14 days out, your MagicBands will be at Resort check-in for you.
- MagicBands currently come in a choice of 8 solid colors (free)—pink, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, blue and gray. Gray is the default color if you do not customize. Plenty of other designs and specialty MagicBands are available for purchase, these are not included in cost of package.
- MagicBands are unique to Disney World, and not currently found at any other Disney Resorts.
- Disney prints your name inside your MagicBand, making for a fun keepsake.
- MagicKeepers, compatible with MagicBand 2 are an alternative to wearing a MagicBand on your wrist.
