MagicBand+ Coming to Disney World in 2022

These new MagicBands will offer guests more ways to connect to the stories being told in theme parks, interacting with them in ways they never could before.

Disney is using the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary as the occasion to launch MagicBand+ and they will even integrate with the event.

MagicBands were introduced at Walt Disney World in 2013 and have been an integral part of the theme park experience ever since.

They are adjustable wristbands that have a small radio frequency (RF) chip inside the head of the band.

This sensor sends out a radio signal to various interfaces in the theme parks and allows guests to perform various functions like using them as park tickets, a credit card, or hotel room keys.

MagicBand+ still does all the things the older MagicBand+ did, and now it has even more features guests will enjoy.

The way they are able to pull this off is because MagicBand Plus uses brand new technology and is much more advanced than the MagicBand 2.0 system.

New Features of MagicBand+

Gesture Recognition – For example, after you enter a theme park, MagicBand+ will come alive at various times with color-changing lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition.

Role Playing – Play like a bounty hunter in a galaxy far, far away and find virtual bounties throughout Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
