A hot topic in the Disney World vacation planning community is Disney’s billion-dollar investment, MyMagic+. The cornerstone of this technology is Magic Bands so we wanted to share with you all that you need to know about magic bands at Disney World and the role they will play in your next vacation.

First of all, magic bands are only available to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. For every vacation that you plan to stay on-site, each member of your family will receive a magic band.

Each magic band can be customized with a name inside as well as a color. You can choose from red, yellow, green, gray, orange, blue, or pink. After you have customized all of your magic bands, Disney will ship them approximately 30 days before your vacation begins.

If you are flying into the Orlando International Airport, you will want to be sure that you pack your magic bands in your carry on or wear them because you will scan them to board Disney’s Magical Express to your resort.

Now, you may be wondering what you magic band can do. Your magic band will serve as your room key, theme park ticket, dining credits, room charging privileges, FastPass selections, and more!

In order to use your magic band for purchases or dining credits, you will need to enter a 4-digit pin that you previously created.

If you lose your magic band, you can immediately deactivate it on your My Disney Experience account and request a new one at any guest relations location.
