Disneyland introduces MagicBand+ wearable tech devices — here’s how they work
UPDATED: October 19, 2022

“Guests in the vicinity of ‘World of Color’ in Disney California Adventure Park, ‘Fantasmic!’ in Disneyland, and other shows can experience illumination and vibration in sync with those displays as one of several features included with the MagicBand+ wearable device.”

“One of the most immersive experiences that the MagicBand+ offers is the ‘Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters’ set at Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The activity is a scavenger hunt in which guests get assigned a bounty at an assignment station near the entrance of the Black Spire Outpost.”

“MagicBand+ devices are $34.99-$44.95 and will be available at shopdisney.com or at select locations across Disneyland Resort, including its theme parks, hotels and the Downtown Disney district. MagicBand+ purchased from shopDisney.com or Walt Disney World Resort will also work at Disneyland Resort.”
