Chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, Thomas Staggs appeared at D11 on Wednesday and showed off Disney’s wearable device that park guests can use to eliminate paper tickets. The MagicBand will be available this year. It allows guests to enter the park, make purchases and even open the door to your Disney hotel room. It’s magic.
The MagicBand is part of the My Magic Plus experience which allows you to arrange your favorite things at the Disney parks and resorts prior to your trip. This is handled through a new web site and app called My Disney Experience. The app lets users select three Fast Pass times before even arriving at the park, and arrange for VIP seating at fireworks, parades and character appearances.
The MagicBand can also contain information like the wearer’s name and birthday. As you might imagine, this could mean Mickey saying Happy Birthday to your kid in a personal way.
