Ahead of select Walt Disney World Disney Vacation Club Resort hotels beginning to reopen next week, followed by the theme parks reopening in July, Disney has shared a variety of different experiences and entertainment that will be temporarily unavailable when they reopen.
Now, Disney World has announced another new procedure that will be followed when they reopen.
According to Disney, free MagicBands will be discontinued in the parks for guests with new hotels reservations starting January 1st, 2021.
Up until now, guests at Disney World Resort hotels were given a complimentary MagicBand along with their stay that they could link to their My Disney Experience account to use for their trip. However, due to health and safety precautions, Disney will be discontinuing this offering.
Instead, Disney World will be moving towards a new tool on the My Disney Experience app in 2021 that will bring MagicBand features to smart devices on top of the digital key availability on the app already.
However, Disney Resort guests will still be able to purchase new MagicBands at a discount with even more colors and designs. During their visit, guests can also use the My Disney Experience app or a Key to the World card instead of a MagicBand. Retail locations and shopDisney will still be selling MagicBands for guests to continue wearing in Disney World.
We will continue to update with any further developments as we learn more!
