MagicBand+ Battery Dying Quickly During Use at Walt Disney World
This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.
Guests are having some issues with their MagicBand+ battery after the new bands launched at Walt Disney World today. As we already reported, the bands don’t necessarily come fully charged, which can lead to problems when trying to update them. They need to be 60% charged to update.
As we have used our MagicBand+ for the past few hours, we’ve found that the batteries do charge quickly, but they also drain quickly. For example, our MagicBand+ died after playing Batuu Bounty Hunters for two and a half hours.
If the MagicBand+ dies, it does still function as a regular MagicBand. This means you would still be able to use it to enter a park or your hotel room, and for Lightning Lane and DAS access. You would not be able to use it to play Batuu Bounty Hunters or Disney Fab 50 Quest and it would not light up with nighttime spectaculars.
