  • Today is the beginning of guest testing with MagicBands…select guests checking in today and the next two days at the Contemporary and Animal Kingdom Lodge are receiving them.

  • Are those receiving magic bands also able to use FastPass+ and thus book attraction times online?

  • I'm a sucker for cheap gimmicks so I kind of hope they have some versions of these available at the D23 Expo. Cause I wont be at Disney World again for a couple of years most likely but I REALLY want these wrist bands and some of the decorations.

    • The wristbands are programmed for the dates of your visit so you can’t get them until you are going. The are online sites that have “magic band bandits” which are the decorations that you could get ahead of time.

  • There's no way WDW is ever going to get me to wear one of these. Ever. All this next gen stuff, especially FastPass+, really defeats the purpose of a "vacation" IMO. Why would you want to micromanage your vacation down to the point of deciding what you're going to ride and do and when in advance? It creates such a tight schedule and deadlines to meet its not a vacation anymore. Its just stressful. And is it really that much of an inconvenience to use your room key/credit card/debit card/cash to pay for things, and to use your actual ticket to get in the parks and get FastPasses?

    I guess some people like it, but I just don't get it.

  • I wonder if the Crocs things (I forget the actual name) will fit? They look VERY similar in design. Not sure about how the MagicBandits attach to the actual band.

  • The use of the "key to the world" card as the resort room key, the park admission ticket, fastpass pickup and disney dinning/"credit card" has made the entire disney vacation experience far more relaxing, easy and enjoyable in the past. If a separate item was required for each of those things, you would go crazy trying to keep track of them (not to mention trying to find them when you inevitably lost them)—I would only imagine the MagicBands, when they are fully tested and ready to be implemented across the resort, will make the experience just as enjoyable and should add no more hassle than you would allow it to to your vacation. The use of the current fastpass system can create a "schedule" of sorts around which you must plan your day. However, it is not required and those guests who do not wish to use it can always go standby.

  • We got bands in a test in January 2014. They are so convenient to use. You don’t forget to carry them like door entry cards. You can swim in them. The track your photos to them. The scheduling of events cant cause a tight schedule (as someone suggested above) because you are limited to a couple of scheduled fast passes per day. It really just assures that you WILL get to ride a popular ride that you might never get to ride otherwise (sometimes all fast passes are gone within an hour of opening). Although spontaneity is important to a vacation, relaxation is also. The bands make for a more relaxing trip. Besides, where does standing in line for two hours rank on the spontaneity scale?
