in Merchandise, Walt Disney World

In years past, when Guests booked a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, if they were staying on property, Disney would send them a complimentary MagicBand to use throughout their vacation. However, at the start of 2021, Walt Disney World Resort officially discontinued complimentary MagicBands for Disney Resort hotel Guests.

This change, on top of the announcement of Disney MagicMobile, made many think that MagicBands would soon be discontinued. However, the good news is that despite the end of complimentary MagicBands, Disney is continuing to design and release brand-new MagicBands that Guests can purchase.

In case you aren’t familiar, MagicBands are described by Walt Disney World as:

This colorful wristband is actually an all-in-one device that effortlessly connects you to all the vacation choices you made with My Disney Experience. Your MagicBand enables you to travel lighter throughout your vacation. Use it to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room and buy food and merchandise.

If you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the near future, you can use a Key To The World card (provided at the Front Desk) for Disney Resort hotel room entry, theme park entry, and charging purchases to your hotel room with a valid credit card. Additionally, Guests can opt to use a MagicBand from a past visit or may purchase a MagicBand before they arrive at Walt Disney World.

Though Disney World discontinued free MagicBands, they are still offering a wide variety of designs and colors. New MagicBands can be purchased on shopDisney.com here.
