If you have a newer iPhone, you might have heard about the Magic Band Plus+, which allows you to use your phone in all of the parks. With the MagicBand+, you can keep track of your park admission, make reservations, and even check in for a show. Plus, it comes with a rechargeable battery, so you can keep using it for hours. However, you’ll need to know a few things before you can get the most out of your MagicBand+.
The Magic Band Plus is an updated version of the original MagicBand. It has a lot of new features, including a rechargeable battery, gesture recognition, and haptic vibrations. You can check your MagicBand’s battery life using the My Disney Experience app.
While the old Magic Band Plus had all of the same features, it did not have a rechargeable battery. This new device is much more waterproof and can last up to three days in the park.
New Light Pattern
There are many new ways to interact with your device, including a variety of lights and other interactive elements. Some of these include a new light pattern. Another new feature is a haptic vibration, which allows users to feel their surroundings.
Waterproof & Rechargeable
Another novelty is the MagicBand+ charger, which is included with the device. Unlike the older version, this version of the MagicBand is waterproof and rechargeable.
Made of Metal Prongs
The charger is designed to look a little odd. It is made of metal prongs that line up with a metal section on the MagicBand+ puck. As it moves around the screen, the charging light changes color.
The Magic Band plus (or MagicBand+) allows guests to participate in special scavenger hunt activities at all four of the Walt Disney World parks. They can also interact with nighttime spectaculars. If you’re a fan of the “Glow with the Show” at Disneyland, you’ll love this experience.
In this scavenger hunt, guests are tasked with finding a series of mini-games. You may find yourself talking to cast members, learning about your home country, or simply having fun. However, the main interactivity comes from two mini-games.
Art of Animation Resort’s
The Art of Animation Resort’s scavenger hunt takes about 25 minutes to complete. To begin, you’ll need to grab a map from the resort’s front desk. This will include clues about locations to locate Disney and Pixar characters, as well as movie-inspired theming areas.
This scavenger hunt is available year-round. It involves marking the location of huge pop culture items, such as statues, throughout the resort. Once you find the icons, you’ll have to mark their location on the map.
Fan of Walt Disney World
If you’re a fan of Walt Disney World, you may have heard of the “Disney Fab 50” quest, a fun interactive game that requires the use of a MagicBand+ and Play Disney Parks app. This game uses an augmented reality feature to help you find and unlock golden statues.
A little bit more technical, the MagicBand+ is a smart wristband that lights up when you get closer to a Fab 50 statue. It also has an interactive game and a handful of other cool features. The MagicBand is more expensive than its original counterpart, but it’s worth the extra money.
Fab 50 Quest
In addition to the Fab 50 Quest, you can find MagicBand+ statues in the Magic Kingdom. These sculptures are equipped with a series of audio greetings from different Disney characters. When you wave your MagicBand+ at the statue, it vibrates and changes colors.
My Disney Experience App
You can use the My Disney Experience app to customize your MagicBand. For example, you can add the names of family members to your MagicBand so that you and your loved ones can keep track of which one belongs to whom.
In late August, Disney launched an interactive upgrade to the MagicBand. The new device is a kind of smartwatch. It works through Bluetooth and offers haptic feedback. Among other features, it pulses with colorful lights, vibrates with music and responds to interactive elements in the park.
Number of New Features
While the new device has a number of new features, it also has several shortcomings. For example, it requires a charger. Unless you are staying at a resort, it will not be able to charge at a hotel.
If you do not want to invest in the upgraded MagicBand, you can still use your regular MagicBand. However, you won’t be able to unlock your room with it. You’ll need to enter a code to do this.
Another big selling point for the new device is the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge minigame. This is an interactive game that will let you become a bounty hunter in the Black Spire Outpost. Bounty hunters can complete this mission by finding a virtual bounty and bringing it to the local guild master. The local guild master will then reward them with galactic credits.
