Walt Disney World announces interactive MagicBand+

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

From the blog post:

After you enter a theme park, MagicBand+ will come alive at various times with color-changing lights, haptic vibrations and gesture recognition. The wearable will allow you to engage with favorite Disney moments in new ways, including:

  • Play like a bounty hunter in a galaxy far, far away and find virtual bounties throughout Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
  • Interact with the “Disney Fab 50 Character Collection,” the golden sculptures spread throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks.
  • Experience nighttime spectaculars in a new way as you see your band light up and complement the magic in the skies, including the new “Harmonious” at EPCOT and “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom Park.

Why don’t they come out with one that tells time…?

I wonder about that too. We bought a knock-off Fitbit type tracker for my kid, which shows the time and even has the heart monitor, and it was only $30. I can't imagine that Disney doesn't have the resources to make something similar.

At one time I believe you could buy an aftermarket Apple Watch band that hold the removable center of a MagicBand. And the Apple Watch has a Mickey watch face wallpaper.
