This summer you will be able to interact with Disney magic in all news with the introduction of MagicBand+ and Hey Disney!
These new products will enhance your visit to Walt Disney World during the 50th anniversary celebration and beyond, so let’s get into detail about them:
If you have visited the parks before, you are familiar with the regular MagicBands that allow you to get into your hotel room with just one tap, make purchases at any retail location, pay for your meals and take advantage of DisneyPhotoPass service. Well now with MagicBand+ the magic will get better!
Remember the adorable 50th anniversary statues around the Walt Disney World Resort? Well now, you will be able to bring them to life and interact with them using your MagicBand+!
You can also add to the magic by using your Play Disney Parks mobile app and keep track of the statues you’ve found. The more you find, the more features you can unlock with digital achievements and an augmented reality feature that will give you a glimpse into your favorite character’s worlds. Cool right?
Join the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters experience at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! Your MagicBand+ will be your guide vibrating and lighting up to show if you’re in the right path, you can also use the augmented reality thermal viewer in the Play Disney Parks mobile app which reveals what’s behind locked door in the Black Spire Outpost. Once you complete your mission you will get rewarded with galactic credits! Sounds like so much fun!
At night your MagicBand+ will light up and complement the magic in the sky making the whole experience more interactive!
MagicBand+ will go on sale this summer with a discounted price for Disney Resort hotel guests and Walt Disney World annual passholders. Your regular magicband will still work will all the features like room key, park ticket, and more.
Hey Disney! is the new digital voice assistant ready to bring Disney characters and stories to life! You’ll be able to ask it questions, set timers and alarms and get answers from characters like Mickey, Olaf, Rocket and Groot, Tiana and more.
This device will be available at Disney Resort hotels and can very useful when it comes to information like when is next bus to Epcot or to request something to the front desk. It will be rolling out in select hotel guests rooms later this year.
Access will be offered as an optional, complimentary feature during guests stays and also available for purchase for supported Echo devices via the Alexa Skills store so you can keep the magic at home!
MagicBand+ will also work at home when paired with supported Echo devices to enhance some of the Hey Disney! experiences.
We are so excited to experience MagicBand+ and Hey Disney! at Disney Parks and at home soon!
