What is the Disney MagicBand?

The MagicBand is a wristband that acts like your park ticket, your credit card, your room card, and your magical express ticket.

How to use Disney MagicBand

Introduced to the Orlando, Florida Walt Disney World resort location in January of 2013, Disney Magic Bands were a technological solution to a better guest experience.

The idea was: no more carrying around your park tickets, Genie+ reservations, room key, wallet, and credit card all over the parks all day.  Why do that when you can wear it all in one place!

In essence, Disney’s Magic Band is a rubber bracelet that will make your pockets lighter and your guest experiences more efficient and convenient.

Essentially, by using the My Disney Experience app or website, or by visiting a concierge or Guest Relations desk, you can link up as much or as little information to your Disney Magic Band as you’d like.

How to Use Your Magic Band

  • Step 1: Book a Disney Resort visit.  
  • Step 2: About two weeks before your visit, you receive an email reminding you to choose your Disney Magic Band color (either gray, the default color, green, blue, purple, yellow, orange, red, or pink).  
  • Step 3: Personalize the inside of the Magic Bands with your name/text of their choice.  
  • Step 4: Have the Disney Magic Bands shipped to their home in preparation for their resort visit.

From 2013 until now, this process has been the same, and free of charge, for all Walt Disney World resort guests…however, you should know that it is no longer free anymore.
