Guests at the Walt Disney World Resort have been able to use MagicBand+ for a while. But it had always been announced that it would also be debuting at the Disneyland Resort. We now know that it will officially debut later this fall.
MagicBand+ is a next-generation wearable that enables you to see and feel park experiences in a new way. This includes color-changing LED lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition. MagicBand+ comes in multiple designs and colors and it is also rechargeable and waterproof. When MagicBand+ is paired to a smartphone device through the Disneyland app, it unlocks personalization options such as selecting unique light colors and adjusting the vibration and motion recognition settings.
MagicBand+ features and experiences will vary between Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
At launch, this wearable will boast a host of convenient capabilities and there will be more to come in the future. You will be able to connect your MagicBand+ to your theme park ticket or Magic Key pass in the Disneyland app. Doing so will allow for an easy way to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks. You’ll also be able to use it to check in at Lightning Lane entrances and with Disney PhotoPass.
MagicBand+ also adds new, immersive elements and surprises to park experiences, for example during select nighttime spectaculars, your band will complement the show with colorful, dancing lights and vibrations. Take a look at how MagicBand+ works with Harmonious at EPCOT.
When it debuts, MagicBand+ will come to life during “World of Color” in Disney California Adventure. It will also work with “Fantasmic!” and select nighttime shows in Disneyland Park.
Guests will also be able to enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park with the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters interactive quest. Vibrations and lights from your MagicBand+ will help guide you to find virtual bounties across Black Spire Outpost. When you find your bounty, you can use the augmented reality thermal viewer in the Play Disney Parks app to reveal who’s hiding in the shadows. Local guild master Raga Bua will reward you with galactic credits, once your mission is successfully completed.
And this is just the beginning. There will be more MagicBand+ features and experiences still to come!
