Just Announced: MagicBand+ Coming To Disneyland This Fall
This fall, MagicBand+ will make its momentous debut at Disneyland Resort, bringing the wearable technology to the West Coast for the first time! Today, we are excited to share how this innovation will deliver hands-free convenience and unlock a new dimension of Disney storytelling.
Launched at Walt Disney World Resort earlier this summer, MagicBand+ is a next-generation wearable that enables you to see and feel park experiences in a new way, thanks to smart features like color-changing LED lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition. Available in a growing assortment of designs and colors, MagicBand+ offers another opportunity to show off your personal style in the parks. It’s also rechargeable (with the included charging cable) and waterproof, keeping the fun going and going! 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. Here’s a glimpse of it in action at Disneyland Resort!
At launch, this wearable will boast a host of convenient capabilities – with more to come in the future! Guests can connect their MagicBand+ to their theme park ticket or Magic Key pass in the Disneyland app for an easy way to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks (valid Park admission and reservation required), or use it to check in at Lightning Lane entrances (separate valid Lightning Lane entry required). After capturing precious memories with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, a tap of their band links the photos to their Disney account.
MagicBand+ also adds new, immersive elements and surprises to park experiences. In sync with special moments during select nighttime spectaculars, their band will complement the magic in the skies by pulsing with colorful, dancing lights and vibrations.
Guests will also be able to explore Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland park like never before with the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters interactive quest. Vibrations and lights from their MagicBand+ will help guide them to find virtual bounties across Black Spire Outpost. When they find their bounty, they can use the augmented reality thermal viewer in the Play Disney Parks app** to reveal who’s hiding in the shadows. Once their mission is successfully completed, local guild master Raga Bua will reward them with galactic credits.
And this is just the beginning – there are more MagicBand+ features and experiences still to come! Stay tuned for more updates and announcement of the official launch date.
