Walt Disney World to eliminate Complimentary Magic Band Distribution in 2021

Today Disney Parks Blog released information on the new process for which Walt Disney World will take park reservations and operate when they begin their phased reopening.

Including in the announcement was the following statement:

“In 2021, we plan to unveil an innovative new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will bring features of a MagicBand to your smart devices, building on the app’s existing digital key feature. With this new offering on the horizon, we will be retiring our complimentary MagicBand distribution to Disney Resort hotel guests for new reservations with arrivals beginning Jan. 1, 2021”

Disney Resort hotel guests will still have the option to purchase a discounted magic band of their choice, and Disney will be introducing even more colors and designs featuring favorite Disney characters in the future. Guests who prefer not to purchase a discounted MagicBand will be able to use the My Disney Experience app or a Key to the World card during their visit. Disney will still offer MagicBands in retail locations and on shopDisney.com, and guests will be able to continue using the wearables throughout Walt Disney World Resort.
