As if checking into a Disney resort isn’t exciting enough now you get jewelry! Don’t worry guys it doesn’t cost extra, and ladies they have accessories!
This little beauty is the new Disney Magic Band, your bracelet to the world. While this is still in the “testing” phase the concept is awesome. You will have everything linked to this one central place, your room key, credit card, tickets, dining and FastPass+! We will explain those functions of your MagicBand in a later blog.
When you book your vacation you will go to Startmydisneyexperience.com and register. if you already have a Disney.com log in you can use that too but you will have to link your reservation first. Only then can you manage all your itinerary plans, Disney FastPass+ service and dining reservations, as well as modify plans on-the-go using in-park kiosks, Cast Members or their own smartphones and tablets. Once you’re set up there you get to pick a band for each member of your party and each person can pick their own color. They will arrive about two weeks before your scheduled vacation engraved with your name and delivered by the incredibles.
Now ladies, and some gentlemen, accessories! The magic Disney team has created a way for you to make your band even more personal! There are a variety of coverbands and MagicBandits, much like those that you use on crocs, and even magicsliders! A fun way to style up your band!
The coverbands are a fun way to add a pattern to the plain bands. They come in a variety of options anything from purple and black Haunted Mansion wallpaper to Small world prints to remind your of your favorite attractions or Phineas and Ferb and Star Wars! You can buy single band covers for $6.95 or three for $15.95
The sliders are large charms that turn your plain band into a character. Mickey and Minnie are currently available. The charm slides over the “magic chip” making it easy to find and use the touch feature to pay or at your fast pass attraction. Prices for these are between $12.95 and $14.95.
We all remember the rage that Jibbitzs cause when they first came out for crocs. Well Disney has created their own version called MagicBandits for the bands. This is probably the product that has most variety. These small charms feature popular characters and icons like Phineas and Ferb, the fab five, the muppets, Tinkerbell, Mickey ice cream bars, theme park icons, bling Minnie ears, nightmare before Christmas and of course classic Mickey. These range in price from $6.95 for a single to $12.95 for a triple pack.
