Disney Cast Get Exclusive Preview of New MagicBand+

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

MagicBand+ is now available at Walt Disney World – and our cast members were the first to experience it before today’s big launch! MagicBand+ is our newest wearable that brings the magic to life in all-new ways, and about 200 cast members saw this firsthand during a private viewing of “Harmonious” at EPCOT. Ahead of the preview, cast members received a complimentary MagicBand+, specially themed to the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary – our cast are the heart of the celebration, after all.

Within the
opening notes of “Harmonious,” MagicBand+ came to life. Throughout the
spectacular, the newest wearable lit up and vibrated in sync with the
fireworks, visual effects and music, immersing cast members in the show in a
whole new way.

As if one #DisneyCastLife preview opportunity is not exciting enough, some cast members also enjoyed an exclusive sneak peek of Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters at Disney’s Hollywood Studiosone of the new in-park experiences available with MagicBand+ at Walt Disney World. MagicBand+ served as their guide when seeking numerous virtual bounties hidden across Black Spire Outpost. Check it out:

For me, this past week has been heartwarming. As I watched the story of “Harmonious” unfold with my MagicBand+ on my wrist or traversed the Black Spire Outpost to find my virtual bounty, I couldn’t help but smile every time I heard my fellow cast members cheer, gasp or exclaim, “this is so cool!” Witnessing excited reactions during opportunities you can only get as a Disney cast member served as further proof that the #DisneyCastLife is all about magic. I also want to give a huge shoutout to the Technology & Digital team who brought MagicBand+ to life.

Are you ready to experience the magic of our newest wearable? MagicBand+ is now available for guests to purchase at select locations across Walt Disney World and online at shopDisney.

That's all folks!
