As you probably know by now, Disney has changed the FastPass process for visitors to their four Florida theme parks. MagicBands and FastPass+ are becoming the “norm” now at Walt Disney World as guests adjust to the change.
Magic Band testing for guests staying on property has been taking place for a few months now. Guests with MagicBands linked their Disney hotel reservation are able to preplan their fast passes. They can also use their Magic Bands for park admission, hotel entry and charging for food or souvenirs.
The next phase of testing for Magic Bands began recently for Annual Pass Holders (including Seasonal Annual Passholders!) To check and see if you’re eligible for your free MagicBand, go to www.mydisneyexperience.com. After you sign into your account, look for the option to “Personalize your MagicBand.” Disney is staggering the release of the bands, so don’t worry if you don’t see the option yet as it will be available soon. Also, according to the website, shipping of the MagicBands will not begin until mid-March.
