MagicBand+ Features and Experiences Revealed for Disneyland Resort, Coming this Fall
by Jessica Pineda, Public Relations Manager, Disneyland Resort

“Launched at Walt Disney World Resort earlier this summer, MagicBand+ is a next-generation wearable that enables you to see and feel park experiences in a new way, thanks to smart features like color-changing LED lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition. Available in a growing assortment of designs and colors, MagicBand+ offers another opportunity to show off your personal style in the parks. It’s also rechargeable (with the included charging cable) and waterproof, keeping the fun going and going! When MagicBand+ is paired to a smartphone device through the Disneyland app*, it unlocks personalization options such as selecting unique light colors and adjusting the vibration and motion recognition settings.”

“At launch, this wearable will boast a host of convenient capabilities – with more to come in the future! Connect your MagicBand+ to your theme park ticket or Magic Key pass in the Disneyland app for an easy way to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks (valid Park admission and reservation required), or use it to check in at Lightning Lane entrances (separate valid Lightning Lane entry required). After capturing precious memories with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, a tap of your band links the photos to your Disney account.

“MagicBand+ also adds new, immersive elements and surprises to park experiences. In sync with special moments during select nighttime spectaculars, your band will complement the magic in the skies by pulsing with colorful, dancing lights and vibrations.”
