Disney’s Previously Complimentary Resort Guest MagicBands Are Now $5

As previously shared, Walt Disney World announced they will no longer be offering complimentary MagicBands for their Resort Guests as of 2021. Today, January 1, Disney has updated the My Disney Experience App to show the previously complimentary MagicBands are now $5 per guest.

When logging into your MagicBand plans on the My Disney Experience App, you’ll see the note as follows:

“Please note: Starting in 2021, we plan to unveil an innovative new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will bring features of a MagicBand to your smart devices. Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels with an arrival date through December 31, 2020 will continue to receive complimentary MagicBands. With the new My Disney Experience offering, MagicBands will no longer be provided on a complimentary basis with new reservations for Disney Resort hotel Guests with arrivals beginning January 1, 2021 and beyond.”

The basic colors that were once complimentary are now $5 as shown in the screenshot below:

So, what you do think? We will say the $5 charge for Disney Resort Guest is much better than the $14.99 in park price for these MagicBands. We’re excited to learn more about the “innovative new offering” coming to the My Disney Experience app. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
