Both of these MagicBands are available now through your My Disney Experience account on the Walt Disney World website for those who have an upcoming trip or for those of you who just purchased a Disney World Annual Pass.
Also question is, are MagicBands necessary?
Do I need a MagicBand? The short answer is, “No.” You do not NEED a MagicBand. Without a MagicBand, you will simply use your RFID-enabled ticket card for all of the functions a MagicBand will otherwise do. You do not need MagicBands in order to make and redeem FastPass+ reservations.
Then, do MagicBands cost money?
The basic Disney Magic Band cost is $19.99 from shopDisney.
Is Disney still using MagicBands?
MagicBands are no longer provided complimentary to Disney Resort hotel Guests. MagicBands are offered for sale up to 10 days prior to arrival to Guests residing in the United States and Canada in English only. MagicBands may also be purchased when you arrive.
Your MagicBand enables you to travel lighter throughout your vacation. Use it to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room and buy food and merchandise. MagicBands add a touch of magic to your vacation by unlocking special surprises, personalized just for you, throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.
