How can I get a MagicBand?
MagicBands & Cards – Frequently Asked Questions
Starting in 2021, we plan to unveil an innovative new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will bring features of a MagicBand to your smart devices. With this new offering, MagicBands will no longer be provided on a complimentary basis with new Disney Resort hotel reservations for Guests with arrivals beginning Jan. 1, 2021 and beyond.
Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels with an arrival date through December 31, 2020 will receive complimentary MagicBands.
Guests can purchase a MagicBand:
- Online at shopDisney
- Select Walt Disney World theme park and Resort hotel retail locations
- Select Disney Springs retail locations
- Other select merchandise and retail locations
MagicBands use Radio Frequency (RF) technology and can be read by short and long-range readers located at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you prefer to use a card—which cannot be detected by long-range readers—you can request a card at your Disney Resort hotel. MagicBands are not included with Water Parks Annual Passes. MagicBands and cards allow you to enter the parks, and unlock Disney Resort hotel rooms.
