Yesterday when I went into the Odyssey at Epcot to show Zoe all of the items on display from the artifacts, I got a really awesome surprise.
When we were talking to a Cast Member, we noticed that she was wearing a MagicBand and she offered to let me try it on. My Disney geek heart skipped a beat as I put it on my wrist.
Once I slipped on the MagicBand, which still have an unknown release date, it was really easy to see that their design is amazing!
The bands are made of a rubber and based off of the same design as running watches, because the texture and materials used to make the MagicBands are extremely lightweight, durable, allow air circulation, and are made to not stick to your skin.
MagicBands will be available in pink, red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and grey. However you will notice that the bands have 2 colors, and the pink area (in this instance) is made so it can be separated from the grey to better fit children and those with smaller wrists.
While you will receive one free MagicBand as an Annual Passholder, you will need to have the My Disney Experience app to use your band effectively.
Currently you cannot register your Annual Pass to you My Disney Experience account, but it is something to keep a watch for so you can order your engraved MagicBand.
Also, if you are an Annual Passholder you will want to make sure that you visit the Walt Disney World site, to add you RFID Annual Pass to your profile under affiliations.
I hope that you enjoy this closer look at the MagicBands that are coming soon to the Walt Disney World Resort!Follow us for more updates:
