Worn on the wrist, an all-in-one device that connects all the choices you made online. Use it to buy food, enter your Disney hotel room, purchase merchandise and allows you to access FastPass+, connects you to PhotoPass and more.

The program is being rolled out over time.

My family loves Magic Bands. We wish they were a thing in the real world. We appreciate the convenience of having everything we need for our trip in one location. And yes, we even buy character Magic Bands.

Pros:

Convenience, unique experience, customizable

Cons:

None

I have the old model and I love wearing it as part of my outfit look. And it is so helpful with fastpasses, photos and room key. I didn't link it with my credit card, though it must be so simple to use it in the parks.

Pros:

Disney has a lot going on at the same time and having a few things left to worry about, is just a dream! The best feature for me was using it for fastpasses.

Cons:

You have to pay for it if you are not staying at the resorts. Although if you are a regular visitor, I really think it is a great investiment to do.

These are great, we've never had a problem. FastPass+, hotel key, pay for anything. Easily adjustable, not a problem in the heat, I'm not sure a better way to get the service you get with these

Pros:

Very diverse, acts as your wallet/purse

Cons:

you can't use the same magic band forever, eventually they go bad

We love our magic bands 1 and 2. It makes things so easy to just head out to the parks. Almost too easy! Wish we had these for our every day lives!

Pros:

Makes everything easy especially if you don't have a bag to check at security points.

Cons:

Wish they could find a more comfortable material.

The Magic Band has really made touring in the theme parks so much easier! They fit like a watch and stay on but are comfortable. They are programmed with your resort room, dining plan credits, park admission and you can charge items to your room with them. These a great and a huge perk to staying on property.

Pros:

Technology that makes vacation easier

Cons:

sometimes there is a glitch in the system

As a Disney World veteran, I had an easy transition to the magic band system. Walk out the door in the AM with your band on your arm and you are set. Our room always has a designated place where all bands go as soon as we get to the room and are done for the day. Therefore, as we exit, it's easy to see who might have forgotten. I cannot tell you, in the "old days", how many times we had to return to the room because one of us forgot our pass. I know it's a big brother thing to a degree, but that is ok with me. Meals, credit card, fast passes, room key - all in one place. Who doesn't like convenience?

Pros:

Everything is all right there on your wrist...

Cons:

Can be hot and sweaty occasionally during 90 degree days

I love the Magicband! I did not think I would like it but it made everything so easy. Opening our room, fast pass, dining. Everything was great. I miss wearing it! In our package I was given the choice of a special band with pictures of the different parks. I only saw three other people with the same one so I felt very "magical".

Pros:

Ease of use

Cons:

None
