“We keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” Walt Disney
When it comes to innovations, The Walt Disney Company is at the forefront. Just one visit to their many theme parks around the world will demonstrate this. Striving to move forward and to constantly evolve is their focus.
Recently, the Disney Parks in California and Florida unveiled their latest piece of technology affording even more convenience for their guests. The MagicBand, a waterproof wristband, will free you from carrying money, tickets, identification and room cards. It works on Radio Frequency technology and easily touches touch points, sensors throughout the resort. This little wristband, when linked through “My Disney Experience” allows full access to plans and all reservations at the Disney Parks. To get the full benefit of the MagicBand, staying on Disney Parks property is ultimate experience in logistical planning and convenience.
The way to begin this magical experience is to register with “My Disney Experience” the Disney planning website including everything from booking a trip right down to dining reservations. The website allows you to compare from the wide array of Disney resorts, select your package if you desire, buy your theme park tickets and personalize your entire vacation. It even links reservations and tickets and allows you to create a family and friends list.
As well, the whole website can be at your fingertips while on vacation through the free “My Disney Experience Mobile App” where you can update any plans while at the theme parks, see up to date attraction wait times, interactive maps of the theme parks and much more. Best of all your MagicBand, customized through “My Disney Experience” carries all information stored on the website if linked.
Basically, all you need as a Disney resort guest is the MagicBand and here’s why:
- it’s your Disney resort room access tool (no room cards/keys required)
- charge food and merchandise purchases on your MagicBand
- it’s your device to allow you entry into the theme parks
- it stores all FastPass+ reservations

- it connects to Disney PhotoPass, so all images taken from Disney photographers will be linked to your account
The MagicBand is secure as it is a part of MyMagic+ which was built with strict privacy controls through the method of Radio Frequency Technology, which has been in use at the Disney Parks for many years to control rides, parade floats, costuming and laundry.
