At Walt Disney World, MagicBands are secure all-in-one devices that allow you to effortlessly access the plans and vacation choices that you’ve made with My Disney Experience. MagicBands are colorful, waterproof wristbands—resembling a watch or bracelet—that you can quickly and easily touch to a sensor called a touch point. MagicBands allow you to travel lighter throughout your vacation. You can use your MagicBand or card to:
- Unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room.
- Enter theme and water parks (with valid admission).
- Check in at FastPass+ entrances.
- Connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account.
- Charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room (only available during your hotel stay).
You will automatically receive a MagicBand if you stay at a Disney Resort hotel. They are complimentary for Disney Resort guests.
You can personalize your MagicBand, making it more colorful and stylish than ever. Choose a different color for each member of your family from 8 solid colors—pink, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, blue and gray— you’ll customize your MagicBands in My Disney Experience.
If you are taking advantage of Disney’s Magical Express, our complimentary motorcoach service from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Resort hotel, don’t pack your MagicBands in your checked luggage. Instead, keep them with you and easily accessible, since they will be used to check in with Disney’s Magical Express—and to unlock your room when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel!
Extensive measures are in place to protect your information, which is a responsibility Disney takes very seriously. MagicBands are part of MyMagic+, which was built with privacy controls from the outset and is voluntary. If you do not want a MagicBand, you’ll receive a card instead for your room key and park ticket.
