There have been lots of announcements coming from Disney World in the last couple of days. The newest one has to do with a complimentary option that has been available to those booking Walt Disney World Resort vacation packages.
In with the announcement about the new Disney Park Pass reservation system, Disney also announced that they will be discontinuing the complimentary MagicBands for guests with package stays beginning January 1, 2021. They are working on a new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will basically be your MagicBand without the band. They had already started working on this with the digital key feature on the app, which allows guests to open their room door with their phone. If you are not a fan of using the My Disney Experience app in place of the MagicBand you can still get a Key to the World card to use.
Don’t worry though, MagicBands aren’t going away, they will still be available for purchase. Disney will still be offering guests with vacation packages the option to purchase MagicBands at a discount. Plus, new colors and designs featuring Disney characters will be available in the future.
Lots of announcements being released from Disney today. How do you feel about all of these updates?
Thanks for reading!
