What is DisneyBand+

DisneyBand+ is a wristband very similar to MagicBand+ found at Walt Disney World. Guests can use this band throughout their cruise experience. It provides a variety of experiences that can make a cruise easier and add some magic to a cruise.

One way the band will make guests’ experience easier is to start before the cruise. Guests can use the band to board the ship during embarkation day. When arriving at your port, use the band for a hands-free boarding process. A cast member at the port will use the band to scan your party in and allow you to make your way onto the ship quickly.

While on the ship, guests use the band to access their stateroom. Like at Walt Disney World, the DisneyBand+ will unlock your stateroom door, so you don’t have to keep track of your crucial card throughout your stay.

Although most food is included on a Disney Cruise, guests can charge food and merchandise to their stateroom folio. This means you don’t have to worry about having a credit card while moving around the ship. Scan your band at select dining locations and shops to quickly charge back to your room.

For guests who want to experience the beautiful private island, DisneyBand+ can also be used there if you shop or purchase specialty drinks while on the island; you can use your DisneyBand+ to charge back to your folio—no need to worry about losing your credit card. Wear the waterproof DisneyBand+ wherever you go on the island.

DisneyBand+ makes the already magical cruise experience even more convenient for guests.

Getting DisneyBand+

DisneyBand+ has a variety of designs for guests to choose from. With over 50 fun designs, guests can find a theme that fits their style. You will find something for everyone, from unique Disney Cruise Line bands to solid colors and character-themed styles.

The bands start at $34.99 for a solid color; however, the themed bands will cost closer to $44.99 plus tax. Purchase them in advance to get the most out of your investment. Place your order at least 45 days before your sail date. This will ensure that your bands will arrive on time.

Have a MagicBand+ from your Walt Disney World trip? Use it as your DisneyBand+ on your Disney cruise. This is a great way to save some money while still enjoying the convenience of the bands during your cruise.

Will you purchase a DisneyBand+ for your next Disney Cruise experience? We love how MagicBand+ works at Walt Disney World and how this new system will continue to grow throughout Disney Cruise Line.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
