Walt Disney World to Stop Issuing Complimentary MagicBands in 2021

The future of the MagicBand system is up in the air.

Walt Disney World is planning to retire the complimentary MagicBand distribution offering to resort guests starting January 1st, 2021.

In the company’s update about the Disney Parks Pass System, Disney said they are working towards a more digital approach. This new plan will utilize smartphones and tablets rather than MagicBands through the My Disney Experience app.

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 continue to have the option to purchase new MagicBands at a discount, and we’ll be introducing even more colors and designs featuring favorite Disney characters in the future.
