There is some exciting news from the Walt Disney World Resort today! The much-anticipated MagicBand+ Launch date has been announced!

The all-new MagicBand+ will do everything a MagicBand can do and more! On July 27, 2022, this wearable will be available for purchase. Guests can use it to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room, grab those Disney PhotoPass memories, and more!

There are several new features coming as well! Check it out!

Disney Fab 50 Quest


As a part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration, the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection features beloved Disney characters throughout all four theme parks. With your MagicBand+, you can help Tinker Bell bring those sculptures to life! Simply wave your hand to get some fun virtual pixie dust at each statue. In addition, the Play Disney Parks app can be used to collect the sculptures as you adventure around the parks to find each one.

Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters


Head to Batuu and you will find that bounty hunting is a popular business! The MagicBand+ is your way to find several virtual bounties that are hidden throughout the Black Spire Outpost with the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters experience. Look for vibrations and lights on your MagicBand+ to guide you to the different locations. Then, the Play Disney Parks app can be used to show you who’s hiding at each spot. The local guild master Raga Bua will give you galactic credits as your reward for each bounty! Are you ready to join the guild?

Nighttime Spectaculars

With the MagicBand+, the magic of Disney fireworks comes even closer at the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT during “Disney Enchantment” and “Harmonious”. The MagicBand+ will light up and vibrate in sync with the fireworks, visual effects, and music. In addition, the MagicBand+ will engage at all four parks as the park icons become Beacons of Magic each night.
