WDW Wednesdays - MagicBands Are Finally Here!

Surprise! Guess what came in the mail? Our MagicBands! This means we are very close to heading to our magical vacation. So what exactly are MagicBands?

MagicBands are colorful, waterproof wristbands, see below, that you can quickly and easily touch to a sensor called a touch point. MagicBands allow you to travel lighter throughout your vacation.

You can use your MagicBand:
Unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room.
Enter theme and water parks (with valid admission).
Check in at FastPass+ entrances.
Connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account.
Charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room (only available during your hotel stay).

So there's less to carry around, and less to worry about losing. With the whole family going we need all the help we can get. The only thing to remember is that if you decide to use the complimentary Disney transportation from the airport, you'll need to be sure not to pack the wristbands in your checked luggage, since that won't be delivered until later. It's best to pack in your carry on so you can enjoy the parks as soon as you get to the hotel, especially if you get there early like us and won't be able to check into your room until later.

You can also  purchase other MagicBands, if you decide you don't want the generic plain colored ones. They have a variety of characters and start at $22.99. We chose the standard bands and all chose a different color. I went with Gray, is that too boring? I wanted it to match my wardrobe for the trip, LOL.

What color would you choose, or would you get a character one?
