Before we dive into your many Haunted Mansion MagicBand options, let’s first talk about the purpose of a Disney MagicBand.

What is a MagicBand?

If you haven’t been to the Walt Disney World Resort in a few years you’re probably wondering what are MagicBands and do I even need to use one?

Well, a MagicBand is basically a wristband that is your theme park ticket, credit card, room key, Magical Express Ticket, and PhotoPass all rolled into one.

We are now on our second version of MagicBands which now has a removable center puck. This allows you to swap them between bands or add them to different accessories.

Do You Have to Use the Disney MagicBand?

If you are a resort guest, yes.  The Disney MagicBand unlocks important things like your room, free parking and access to the Magical Express.

For those who are Annual Passholders or just visiting the parks for a few days and not staying on Disney property then MagicBands are not a necessity.

How Does the Disney MagicBand Work?

The MagicBand 2 uses radio frequency (RF) technology to connect guests to their plans and entitlements safely and securely.

You simply touch your band to touch points in places such as resort room doors, theme park and water park entrances, FastPass+ entrances and cast mobile devices.

How Do You Get a Haunted MagicBand?

There are several ways you can acquire a MagicBand.

You may not know it, but each Disney attraction has special little hidden gems and secrets attached to them.

Hipster Power Tip: There have been rumors throughout the years that the Haunted Mansion MagicBand has special effects whenever you come near the attraction. I haven’t found anything to prove this myth, but if you have experienced an effect with your band, then I’d love to hear about it.

Let’s go through some of the most intriguing things to know about the actual Haunted Mansion attraction inside Disney’s Magic Kingdom.

1 – Madame Leota’s Final Resting Place

Pay close attention to Madame Leota’s tombstone. Her eyes may magically open for you.

2 – Gargoyles in the Haunted Mansion

As you leave the stretching room of the Haunted Mansion, listen for gargoyles talking. They are making sure you “stay together.”

3 – Haunted Mansion Pipe Organ

There’s a replica of the pipe organ from the film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in the ballroom scene of the Haunted Mansion.
