Disney Share More Details About The Upcoming MagicBand+
News - WDW 05-May-2022
If you don't already know, MagicBands are a super convenient way to enter the theme parks, redeem Photopass photos, enter your hotel room, pay, and more. There are thousands of designs to choose from, and they're for sale in most Walt Disney World Resort shops. This summer, MagicBand+ will be launching at Walt Disney World. Disney has today released some more details about these new bands.
The golden character sculptures throughout the four Walt Disney World theme parks during the 50th anniversary celebration will come to life with your MagicBand+. You can also dive deeper into the experience using the Play Disney Parks mobile app to keep track of which sculptures you’ve found. The more you find, the more features you can unlock with digital achievements.
Over in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, MagicBand+ invites you to join the "Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters" experience, where you'll use your band to find numerous virtual bounties hidden throughout Black Spire Outpost. MagicBand+ will be your guide, vibrating and lighting up to show if you’re on the right path. You can then use the augmented reality thermal viewer in the Play Disney Parks app - which reveals what’s behind locked doors in Black Spire Outpost - to uncover your virtual bounty.
You can also experience nighttime spectaculars in a new way as you'll see your MagicBand+ light up and complement the magic in the skies!
Although no official pricing has been announced, earlier this week they were put on the shelves early and priced at $29.99 for the standard colours, up from around $14.99 for the original MagicBands. The original MagicBands will still be for sale and functional as before, even after the introduction of MagicBand+.
