MagicBand is Even MORE Magical During the Holidays


Your MagicBand just got a lot more magical! With your MagicBand+, you can now celebrate the season in all new ways and proudly wear your Christmas spirit!  Whether you’re just enjoying the Parks and taking in the festive sights, attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, or EPCOT’s International Festival of the Holidays, there is magic to be found around every corner with your MagicBand+ this year!

In all 4 Parks, you’ve probably noticed some extra special golden statues hanging around.  Did you know that you can bring those statues to life? The Fab 50 Character statues have gotten into the holiday spirit, and with a wave of your MagicBand, the sculptures will give a holly jolly greeting!

Light up the night with your wrist! This extra special treat is exclusive to select nighttime entertainment like  Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom,  EPCOT’s Beacons of Light, and Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios!  During the shows, your MagicBand will vibrate and change colors in sync with the show. The effect is spectacular when you see thousands of them changing at the same time. 

One of the best things about MagicBand+ is how easy it is to customize your band! During the holiday season, you can choose from unique Christmas light-up themes!  If you head to the MagicBand+ section of the app, you can select your own light-up theme for your band. Simply double-tap the top of your band to activate the effect and show off your holiday spirit!

Your band is also your ticket to unique holiday photos with Disney’s Memory Maker photo service! Throughout the holidays, you’ll find a variety of “magic shots” that can make your unforgettable vacation photos even merrier! 

This perfect stocking stuffer is available to all guests and can be purchased at shopDisney.com. If you’re a Disney Resort hotel guest or an Annual Passholder, you’re eligible to purchase your MagicBand+ in advance through your MyDisneyExperience app at a discounted rate!
