MagicBands were one of the biggest pieces of Disneyland news was missing from this year’s Disney Parks and Resorts panel at the D23 Expo and it looks like we finally got the 411 on the future of MagicBands and MagicBand+ coming to the Disneyland Resort with this latest update from the Disney Parks Blog!
Though a definite release date has not yet been shared, the blog teases a fall release for the newly upgraded MagicBand+, which just recently debuted at the Walt Disney World Resort.
Disneyland Resort fans will soon get to enjoy the same perks as their Florida parkgoers, which allow them to access theme park tickets, Genie+ reservations, as well as give them the ability to get access to their Photopass photos with the flick of a wrist. Whether or not MagicBand+ will work with Disneyland Resort Hotel key access and park purchases are yet to be determined based on the report.
Though some other fun surprises await, including interactive features that will allow the wearer’s band to interact with the park, shows, and entertainment spectaculars, such as World of Color over at Disney California Adventure Park. A new interactive experience will also debut in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The Batuu Bounty Hunters interactive quest will guide visitors of Black Spire Outpost, finding virtual bounties across Batuu. When you find your bounty, you will be able to use an impressive augmented reality thermal viewer that guests can find in the Play Disney Parks App, revealing who’s hiding in the shadows. If you are successful in your quest, you will be able to visit local guild master Raga Bua to collect your bounty!
More interactive experiences have been teased, so stay tuned Disneyland fans! More news will come with an official release date, exclusive designs, as well as more activities guests can look forward to unlocking once MagicBand+ comes to Disney Parks. Exciting is hardly the word we would choose, as we cannot wait to welcome MagicBands to the Disneyland Resort. SoCalThrills will keep you updated as news develops!
