10 Secrets and Tips Most People Don’t Know About Disney Resorts


5. Magic Bands

When the Magic Band promotion was first introduced at Walt Disney World, I was very unsure as to whether this was a good idea or not, but after experiencing our first Disney Vacation using the Magic Bands, I am 100% satisfied and delighted with this latest Disney innovation. A Magic Band is a flexible rubber wrist band available in 8 different colors and is an all-in-one device which uses RFID (radio frequency identification chip) technology to enhance your experience at a Walt Disney World resort. Use your wrist band to unlock your resort hotel room, enter all four theme parks, buy food and merchandise, access the Photo Pass option, plus your Magic Band gives you FastPass+ access to all the rides, attractions, and dining reservations you made online. There is no need to carry money or a credit card. Your Magic Band along with you personal pin # (with approved credit card on file at your resort) is all you need. It’s the safest and easiest way to shop or dine at any of the four theme parks. Photo credit Disney.
