The newest generation of Disney’s MagicBand will be known as the MagicBand+, and they’re adding a ton of fun features that will contribute to the whole Disney World experience! We already shared that the new service will be making its way to Disney World, but now let’s look at some of the details.
The current generation of MagicBands are a wearable way to enter your Disney World hotel room, pay for things around the parks, enter the Lightning Lanes at select attractions, and more. The MagicBand+ will be a whole new way to interact with Disney World, with features like haptic vibrations, color-changing lights, and even gesture recognition!
One of the new MagicBand+ features Disney has announced is that guests will be able to pretend to be a bounty hunter in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge (located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios), where they can find virtual bounties.
The new MagicBands will also interact with the gold 50th Anniversary statues, which are located throughout all four Disney World parks.
Let’s take a look at more of the designs! We have a princess crown…
…a variety of colors with a simple Mickey in the center…
…and ones that say Disney ‘Mom’ or ‘Dad.’
We’re loving this Lilo & Stitch–themed band!
And you can’t go wrong with classic Walt & Mickey.
When looking at the whole band, you can see Cinderella Castle on the Walt & Mickey one! There’s also a faint castle design on the pink 50th band.
There seems to be a little something for everyone!
Check out this video for a better look at some of the designs:

This is all a part of the Metaverse that Disney is pushing to create. The newest MagicBand generation will launch beginning sometime this year, with opportunities for discounts and pre-arrival prices for guests staying at Disney World Resort hotels, as well as Annual Passholders.
And if this new technology isn’t your thing, you can still keep your current generation of MagicBand and use it in the same way you have been for the last several years. If you want a full explanation of MagicBands, read our Ultimate Guide here. Keep reading DFB for more Disney World news!
