If you are going to a Disney park and you are staying at one of their beautiful resorts, you automatically get a Magicband which is connected to your room. When you have a card connected to your room you are able to simply use your Magicband to charge souvenirs, food, and other things like this so you don’t have to worry about carrying around cards or cash. What a lot of people don’t know is that you are able to get a Magicband even if you are not staying at the resort. What would you need the Magicband for if you are not staying at the resort, you ask? That is what I am going to be talking about today, 5 reasons you should get a Disney Magicband even if you are not staying on Disney grounds.
1. Memory Maker: If you choose to get the Disney’s Memory Maker, which is a package where you get a downloadable copy of every picture you take throughout the park for each day that you are there. If you don’t have a Magic Band they give you a little card that you get scanned each time you take a photo and it registers to that card but if you have a magic band they scan your magic band and it registers to your band. It’s just more convenient to scan your band versus pulling out a card each time.
2. Link Your Card: Just like when you stay at the resort and you can use the Magic band to charge things to your room, you can also choose to link a credit/debit card to your band as well and still use it the same way. This makes your walk throughout the park so much more convenient because you don’t have to worry about carrying around cash or cards or even worse, worry about losing them throughout the park.
3. Fastpass: You can also sync your fast passes to your Magic Band as well. This way when you are making your way through the line to get on your favorite rides you don’t have to worry about pulling out a card to get through with your fast pass but instead just bump your band to those mouse ears and make your way through. This makes things go faster for not only you but everyone else in line as well.
4. Souvenir: Souvenirs at Disney Parks are pretty pricey and sometimes you just cannot afford them, however your Disney Magic Band could be a more affordable souvenir option. These only cost around $12 and they do have a little Mickey Mouse logo on them. There are several colors to choose from and if you’re willing to pay extra you can even customize them with various prints, colors, and charms as well. This could make for a really great souvenir for the whole family!
Magic Bands are a really great addition to the Disney experience when you go to visit. Like I said, when you are staying on Disney grounds you automatically get a band with your stay but if you are not, you can simply ask the ticket booth to add a band to your ticket price. You can also find Magic Bands in any Disney store in your local mall/shopping areas. These bands can be very fun and I would really recommend getting one for the whole family.
