We Watched Disney Enchantment Fireworks with Our MagicBand+ and The Results Were Not Great
As a part of the update that came out yesterday for the MagicBand+, the band now reacts to firework shows by glowing and changing color, in theory much like the Made with Magic and Glow with the Show technology of years ago. We stuck around Magic Kingdom last night to watch Disney Enchantment and witnessed our MagicBand+ do “something”, albeit a little delayed.
The MagicBand+ glowed blue for the song, “Into the Unknown” which matches the castle. Previously in our testing, the MagicBand+ would just glow random colors during the show but now it lights up at specific moments as to not distract.
It also glowed light blue.
At some points it seemed to try and match the fireworks too, however, this feature was pretty delayed. We figure that more updates will some out to make the show more synchronized, but perhaps we are expecting too much?

The MagicBand+ glowed orange after the show.
After the show, the MagicBand+ stayed orange for several minutes before returning to its normal color.
Hopefully this isn’t the finished product, because if it is, it is way less impressive than what Disney achieved over 10 years ago with similar technology.
