Okay, let’s start with the Magic Band basics…
What is a magic band??
A magic band is essentially an adjustable bracelet to be worn while you’re at Disney. It is available in children and adult sizes and in 7 colors.
What does a magic band do?
While you’re at Disney the magic band is your life source. At it’s most basic level, it serves as your room key and your park tickets. If you’re using the dining plan your dining plan information is also stored in the chip in the band. You can also set up your magic band to have charging privileges. In addition to these services the Magic Band chip also stores your fast pass reservations while in the parks. You simply tap and go! No longer do you need to rush around getting fast passes and carry them around all day. Reservations for fast passes can be made up to 60 days in advance (for guests staying on Disney property).
How can I customize my magic band?
You can select a color for your magic band on the Disney website when booking your vacation! Each member of your party can select different colors, or even get matching bands! You can also have your names put on the inside of your magic band to keep them straight!
You can also customize your magic bands further with decals from DVC coverbands. Check out the blog on Wednesday for my product review and give away of coverbands!!
My Personal Opinion of the Magic Band–
Hubby and I had our first opportunity to use magic bands this summer on our vacation and we LOVED them! They really made things so much easier! I loved that everything was stored in one little chip on my wrist. It’s also water proof so no worries there! You can go swimming at the resort and not worry about it being damaged or losing it! I loved my magic band, and I loved customizing it with coverband!
