On the top section is an ombre orange silhouette of Maleficent as a dragon, battling Sorcerer Mickey for control of his imagination in the show’s climax. This iconic scene was unfortunately the downfall of the show at Disneyland in April when the dragon caught fire and burned down.

MagicBand+ is the latest iteration of MagicBand, which guests can use in place of a physical ticket to enter Disney Parks, attach PhotoPass pictures, and more. MagicBand+ is available at Walt Disney World Resort and was also the first version of MagicBand to launch at Disneyland Resort. It recently launched as DisneyBand on Disney Cruise Line.

Unlike previous MagicBand styles, MagicBand+ bands interact with the environment of Disney Parks. They light up and vibrate, synching up with Disney attractions and nighttime spectaculars. They interact with Disney Fab 50 statues and can be used to play games like Disney Fab 50 Quest at Walt Disney World and Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters is at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Park. MagicBand+ interaction has begun with Disney100 decorations at Disneyland Resort.

Curious about how kids do with MagicBand+? One of our reporters bought a MagicBand+ for her four-year-old and shared her experience.


Characters on Steamboat Willie riverboat during Fantasmic

“Fantasmic!” is a nighttime spectacular which first debuted in Disneyland on May 13, 1992. The show stars Mickey Mouse as he explores the possibilities of his imagination, but the Disney Villains team up in an attempt to create an unstoppable nightmare for him. Featuring characters and music from classic Disney films, the show incorporates projections on screens of water, pyrotechnics, and a riverboat.

At Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World, “Fantasmic!” premiered in 1998. Following the COVID-19 closure, “Fantasmic!” took a long break, returning last November with new scenes inspired by “Mulan,” “Frozen II,” and “Moana.”

At Disneyland, “Fantastic!” is currently closed following a fire that destroyed the Maleficent dragon.

A third version existed at Tokyo DisneySea from April 2011 to February 2020, set on the waters of Mediterranean Harbor and featuring more representation from that park’s characters like the Genie. The show closed permanently at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
