Guests sailing on the Disney Wish beginning June 12 and beyond, who are within 11 to 45 days of their sail date, can now purchase a DisneyBand+ online as part of a preview. The above three exclusive designs are available.

DisneyBand+ will operate similarly to MagicBand+ or Key to the World cards. Guests can use the bands to board the ship (at US ports), access their stateroom, and charge food and merchandise to the card on their stateroom folio. DisneyBand+ is waterproof and rechargeable.

Kids will be able to use their DisneyBand+ to access Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Scuttle’s Cove on Castaway Cay in lieu of an Oceaneer Club Band. 

Disney Cruise Line promises DisneyBand+ will bring “onboard magic to life with special interactions around the ship.” This could mean the band can be used during games like Disney Uncharted Adventure and may interact with fireworks shows and other live performances.

A Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort MagicBand+ can also be used as a DisneyBand+.

Key to the World cards will still be issued and required (along with a photo ID for guests 18+) to debark and embark at ports of call.

How to Purchase a DisneyBand+

Guests on upcoming Disney Wish sailings can order a DisneyBand+ by visiting My Reservations between 11 and 45 days of their sail date if their reservation is paid in full (while supplies last). Shipping is available to US addresses only (excluding PO Boxes, APO, FPO, DPO, or any cruise ports).

Solid bands cost $34.99, and themed designs cost $44.99, plus tax. Shipping is included and DisneyBand+ is expected to arrive approximately 10 business days after ordering.

There will also be a limited selection of bands available for purchase on board (while supplies last). You will not be able to return or exchange your band.

DisneyBand+ will roll out to other ships sometime after this preview.

Disney Cruise Line Silver Anniversary at Sea

Disney Cruise Line is celebrating 25 years of sailing with the Silver Anniversary at Sea celebration on select sailings from May through September 2023. The first Disney Cruise Line ship, Disney Magic, began its maiden voyage on July 30, 1998.

Mickey and Minnie are wearing new shimmering teal and white costumes for the anniversary celebration. The rest of their friends also have new costumes.

Guests will be invited to join the ship’s captain and cruise director on one evening of each cruise for a special anniversary toast. They will be joined by Captain Mickey and Captain Minnie in their new Silver Anniversary at Sea outfits and the toast will feature the anniversary’s new theme song.

Disney Cruise Line was the first cruise line ever to have a fireworks show at sea. A new 25th-anniversary fireworks display will be featured on some Silver Anniversary at Sea itineraries. The limited-time show features iconic Disney music and a new signature song. The show will be on most Bahamian, Caribbean, and Mediterranean sailings this summer.

25th anniversary pre-show is currently playing before the Disney Cruise Line sail away parties.

The anniversary of Disney Cruise Line also heralds the unveiling of a brand-new membership tier for Castaway Club, which recognizes returning Disney Cruise Line guests with exclusive rewards and perks. Honoring 25 years of Disney magic at sea, members will now earn the distinction of Pearl status after 25 Disney Cruise Line vacations. As the line’s biggest fans, Pearl members will unlock new at-home and onboard benefits. Check out the new Castaway Club lanyards and stateroom gifts.

The Shimmering Seas Collection of merchandise includes a Loungefly mini backpack, Spirit Jersey, and more. Check out some of the 25th anniversary merchandise and the Silver Anniversary pin.

There are also plenty of Silver Anniversary-inspired food and beverage items. Souvenirs include a popcorn bucket and a tumbler.
