Hi there, John!
Thanks so much for stopping by the Moms Panel with your fabulous question!
The new MagicBands
are all-in-one devices that serve as your “ticket,” “room key” and, as time goes on, they'll serve as your PhotoPass Card and can have charging privileges as well. MagicBands are currently being tested with randomly selected Guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resorts as part of the new MyMagic+
If you've already secured your reservations for December, please be sure to create your My Disney Experience
online account through your regular Disney account. Don't worry, if you don't have a Disney account yet, it's really easy to create one by following the simple on-screen instructions. Once you've created your account, you'll need to connect your Resort reservation number and you just might be selected to test the new MagicBands during your vacation!
Check out Tom Staggs' article about My Magic+
on the Disney Parks Blog where the innovative MagicBands were first introduced earlier this year. Subscribe to the posts to stay "in-the-know" about future developments as well!
I sure hope this helps, John! Don't hesitate to write back in if we can answer any additional questions for you!
Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
