What is this? Magic Bands were provided to every guest staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel at no additional charge through the end of 2020. Starting in 2021, guests can purchase a Magic Band if they want to use one during their stay. Unfortunately, Magic Bands are no longer free.
Correspondingly, can you use an Apple watch as a MagicBand?
You can use your Apple Watch instead of a Magic Band. However, you’ll need to create a My Disney Experience app profile and sync your Apple Watch to Apple Wallet. In the future, Disney-goers may be able to sync their accounts to other devices.
Also question is, how do you get MagicBands without staying on property?
Even if you are not staying at a Disney resort, you can – and should – purchase a MagicBand. They’re available at a variety of price points, based on the customization you choose. MagicBands can be linked to your park tickets (purchased separately) through the My Disney Experience app.
