by Carrie McLaren with 26 comments

We have an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World in mid-September and I’ve been secretly hoping that we’d be chosen to test the new MagicBands … and we got lucky, we’ll be trying out this new technology during our trip!

Video FAQs About Disney MagicBands #disney #magicbands #vlog

I made a quick video blog today to introduce you to my MagicBand. In the coming weeks, I’ll show you the inside scoop on how to use the FastPass+ system and online reservations.

September 12th can’t get here soon enough – I’m excited to see how it all works!

What are your thoughts on MagicBands?  

Love them or hate them?


** My upcoming trip to Disney World is in conjunction with my role as the VISIT FLORIDA Family Insider.  However, I paid (full-price) for my seasonal Disney passes.  Thoughts and opinions here are my own. **

    GREAT video!!! Thanks so much for showing them off and letting us know a bit more about that. I can’t wait to see how you like them.

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks, Melissa! I’m so excited for September 12th to get here!

  • Daisy

    These are super cute. I want a pink one!

    • Carrie with Children

      The pink one is super cute! My Maggie instantly called dibs on pink when we were ordering our bands!

  • Whitney @ It's Gravy, Baby!

    I hope to take the kids to Disney World sometime in the next few years. I’ve never heard of the MagicBands, but it sounds so neat and convenient. Awesome!

    • Carrie with Children

      I think it’s going to make visiting the parks a lot easier and I love being able to schedule rides! Hope you all can make it to Disney soon!

  • MIZ

    we are so close to disney now with our move—how did I NOT KNOW about the bands?!

    • Carrie with Children

      Yay! Are you moving to Florida? I’m only 2 1/2 hours from Disney! I’m really excited about the bands too!

  • OurFamilyWorld

    I’ve never heard of them, but they’re cool! Something to keep in mind for when I go back to Disney!

    • Carrie with Children

      Definitely something to keep in mind! From my understanding, the bands will only be available to guests staying on Disney property, so that’s something to keep in mind down the road.

  • Shop with Me Mama

    Now those are pretty cool!!! Thanks for sharing!

  • Amanda

    These look like a great alternative to the old paper tickets you had to keep up with! I hope to take my kids to Disney again very soon!

    • Carrie with Children

      Yes – I love having it all stored in one place! Hope you can make it to Disney soon!

  • The Mom Jen

    Disney is BRILLIANT! So cool!

    • Carrie with Children

      I agree! I’m loving all this new technology! So cool

  • LaTisha

    How neat! So many things are going digital today. Thanks for the detailed intro!

    • Carrie with Children

      I’m a huge fan of technology and I think these bands will definitely make life less stressful in the parks!

  • Jessica @FoundtheMarbles

    What a cool concept! Looking forward to seeing more! Being the only female in the family, I think I’d be destined for the pink one, like it or not!

    • Carrie with Children

      I’m excited to test out the system on our visit – very exciting stuff! There were eight different colors to choose from – so plenty of ones to choose from! :)

  • Hanan

    Seriously brilliant of Disney! Interested to hear how you like them long term.

  • Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    Girl, you are lucky, lucky, lucky. You know, you’re there so often that you might as well just move up there! Love the idea of the bands sooooooo much!

    • Carrie with Children

      Ha! If they’d just let me sleep in the castle, I’d totally move there!

  • Jackie

    What a great idea! Only downside is that we never stay on Disney property.

  • Katherine Bartlett

    They sound great!
