MagicBand+ users can have a little extra fun while interacting with the Disney100 décor around the Disneyland Resort.

Waving your MagicBand+ in front of this Disney100 medallion will cause Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather to cast a spell of purple lights around the edge of this special 100 Years of Wonder display. The three good fairies from “Sleeping Beauty” can be found dancing around this anniversary installation right behind the Storytellers statue at Disney California Adventure.

At the Disney100 Mickey statue in Downtown Disney, waving your MagicBand+ will get Mickey to talk! When we stopped by, Mickey marveled at the crowds saying, “Wow, look at all the people here today!”

Earlier this year, it was revealed that MagicBand+ would trigger special effects on the platinum decorations. In that announcement, we learned that the interactions weren’t likely to debut with the start of the Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebration, but they’re ready now.

In addition to the Disney100 décor, the bands also interact with statues seen around the resort, similar to how they did at Walt Disney World during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” MagicBand+ also interacts with select attractions and nighttime spectaculars at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

The Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebration began on January 27, 2023, with the debut of “Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland and “World of Color – ONE” at Disney California AdventureMickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway also opened on January 27.
