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

Convenient for any guest if you are planning on parkhopping, using FastPasses, using PhotoPass. Even more convenient for guests staying on property, as you can use it as a room key and also link your credit card to it. I loved not having to take anything except my MagicBand when I went to the resort pool. We were able to buy drinks and even rent bikes for the ride between Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter, all at the flick of my wrist! But beware if you have poor impulse control like I do...it's easy to rack up a huge bill when you're not pulling out cash or a credit card.

Pros:

convenient, easy to use, waterproof

Cons:

easy to spend \"invisible\" money

Overall, good

Our family absolutely LOVED this new technological feature of our Disney Vacation. Rather than having to run your debit card at every store & restaurant, simply wave your band at a key station and enter your pin then voila'- everything your need will be added to your resort room's bill if you are staying on property. SO MUCH EASIER and fun to use.

Pros:

secure, quick, and easy!

Cons:

none
