MagicBand+ will be arriving at the Disneyland Resort this fall. The wearable technology has been in use in different iterations at Walt Disney World Resort for years. They also could be used at Aulani to unlock the magic. The most recent iteration, MagicBand+, launched earlier this summer at Walt Disney World Resort.
MagicBand+ is a wearable that allows guests to both see and feel park experiences in a whole new way. This is done through color-changing LED lights, haptic vibrations, and also gesture recognition. MagicBand+ is already available in various designs and colors and more are on the way. This creates a new way to experience the park and also to do it in a way that allows them to show off their personal style. MagicBand+ is rechargeable (with included charging cable) and also waterproof. It can be paired to a smartphone through the Disneyland app and then can unlock personalization options like unique light colors and also the ability to adjust vibration and motion recognition settings.
The MagicBand+ experience will be different at Disneyland Resort versus Walt Disney World Resort. However, there will be one feature that Disneyland Resort guests will appreciate, the ability to use it at the Main Gate to enter Disneyland or Disney California Adventure (with valid admission and reservations). In a similar vein, MagicBand+ will also allow guests to check in to Lightning Lane entrances (with purchase of access via Genie+ or individual Lightning Lane). There are some other features that will be available with the MagicBand+ as well. They include:
- The ability to link Disney PhotoPass to Disney Account
- Seek virtual bounties with Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters experience when paired with the Play Disney Parks app
- Come to life during special moments of nighttime spectaculars at the Disneyland Resort
MagicBand+ will be launching at the Disneyland Resort in Fall 2022. The features listed above will be included with the initial launch but more are promised for the future. On shopDisney.com, MagicBand+ is currently being sold for $44.99. Daps Magic will continue to report on the new features as they are released.
