MagicBands are Seamless Fun – Even When Staying at 2 or 3 Resorts!

Inside this article:

Disney World’s MagicBand technology is top-notch and it just keeps getting better.

In case you’re just waking up from a coma, let the Nerds help bring you up to speed. Disney World’s MagicBands allow guests a lot of flexibility – all from a stylish wrist-piece. Armed with your MagicBand (get it? armed? No? well….), you can unlock your Disney World Resort door, enter your Disney World Resort parking area, charge meals, redeem FastPass, book a FastPass, purchase souvenirs, enter theme parks, share your plans with Cast Members when you have questions, park at Disney World theme parks and more.

MagicBands come in a variety of colors and designs.

MagicBands are available for purchase and generally range from $14.99 for solid colors:

Solid colors are the least expensive MagicBand options.

And typically top out in the $29.99-$34.99 with the higher end often reserved for limited edition MagicBands (and we all know the Nerds are willing to pay a premium for anything with Baby Yoda!).

The fun designs and limited edition MagicBands are generally in the $24.99 range.

When booking a Disney World vacation package that includes theme park tickets, guests can expect +/- $15 off their MagicBand selection. This means many of the solid colors are complimentary and other styles, like the Disney Skyliner MagicBand, may be purchased for around $15.

You even get to customize it with a name or maybe a little Nerdy fun!

Sometimes a trip to Disney World is simply Mmmmmagical!

But wait, there’s more! Act now and you can collect and trade MagicBands for future trips or even color coordinate from one day to the next. When you book a Disney World vacation, the MagicBand(s) should appear directly in your My Disney Experience.

Open up MyDisneyExperience to see your MagicBands.

Once inside MyDisneyExperience, you can report MagicBands lost, inactivate them, reactivate them and add new ones. If you have multiple MagicBands activated, you can wear a different MagicBand each hour and your ability to charge, enter, unlock or open will work from one to the next.

Mix and Match for some extra fun on your Disney World trip.

The wonder of Disney World’s MagicBand technology doesn’t stop there!

On our most recent trip to Disney World, we stayed at three different resorts. We booked our favorite Skyliner Resort – Pop Century – directly through Disney World complete with theme park tickets. From there, we rented DVC points and stayed at two additional properties. Because we added our DVC reservations to our MyDisneyExperience, we were easily/seamlessly/magically able to use the same MagicBands to access our rooms directly as well as continue to enter theme parks and charge food and souvenirs despite our check in and check out activity.

This was all on top of leaving our Pop Century room a few days early in order to explore a couple different resorts. Disney World made this process easy with their extended, enhanced and flexible cancellation policy. We literally stopped by the front desk – they were incredibly accommodating. It’s a game changer!

If we’re being REALLY honest, we expected a few hiccups and were pleasantly surprised to experience none. Despite last minute changes to our reservations and each Nerd bringing along multiple MagicBands (I mean, you never know what you might be wearing), it was smooth sailing.

On top of all of this, there is our very favorite part about wearing MagicBands – it’s just about all you need to access every element of your Disney World vacation! Sure, you should have a credit card and your ID as back-up, but in 5 days we never once needed anything except our Disney wrist-candy (Nerdy term for MagicBand). It unlocked the entire “world” for us and we had a blast.
