Over the past year Disney has been developing an exciting collection of tools at the Walt Disney World Resort® that will give you the opportunity to personalize your visit in advance of your arrival at the resort. These tools also allow you to connect your plans with family and traveling companions. This initiative has been named MyMagic+.
The goal of MyMagic+ is to make it easier for you to create the Disney experience you’ve been dreaming of — from securing a FastPASS to visit a favorite attraction… to a digital guide that simplifies how you move through the Walt Disney World® Resort hotels and Theme Parks … to the touch of a MagicBand to pay for food or merchandise at select locations — allowing you to enjoy each moment like never before.
MyMagic+ consists of the following Disney programs and tools:
- My Disney Experience
- Memory Maker
Your digital guide to the magic, My Disney Experience is an online tool that can be accessed through a web browser, Android/IOS smartphone mobile app or FastPASS+ Kiosk at Walt Disney World®.
You start the fun of your Walt Disney World® visit before you even leave home by using the My Disney Experience website as your guide to the magic. From your home computer, you can reserve access to select attractions and shows with Disney FastPass+ service, book dining reservations and more.
Once at the Walt Disney World Resort® you can use the My Disney Experience mobile app or one of the FastPASS+ Kiosks to keep track of your dining reservations and FastPass+ selections. Plus, the My Disney Experience mobile app gives you easy access to valuable information, such as show times, attraction wait times, Character greeting locations and GPS-enabled maps that let you see what’s happening near your location at the moment. You can also change or modify your FastPASS+ or dining plans on the go at the parks.
Disney FASTPASS Service has always been a great way for you to experience attractions with little or no wait.
Disney is now taking this service to the next level with Disney FastPass+, which allows you to reserve access to Disney FastPass+ selections before you even leave home, enabling you to lock in some “must-do” attraction and entertainment experiences in advance. FastPASS+ locations include select attractions, shows, parade & fireworks viewing areas and Disney Character meet and greet experiences.
The FastPASS+ system is also flexible, allowing you to change your plans even after your arrival at the parks. With Disney FastPass+ service you can spend less time waiting in lines and more time simply enjoying your visit.
MagicBands, your all-in-one wristband, will become your key to the world. Touch to enter, touch to pay, the MagicBand makes it that simple. Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels can customize in advance the color of their MagicBand. MagicBands are available in orange, red, pink, yellow, green, gray and blue. MagicBands can be further customized at the Resorts or Parks by adding Magic Bandits, Covers or Sliders.
The inside portion of the MagicBand can separated from the outer band to make a smaller band for children.
The MagicBand is your All-in-one connection to:
- Room Key at Disney Resort Hotels
- Theme Park and water parks Tickets/Entry
- Disney FastPass+ Service
- Disney PhotoPass+/Memory Maker Media
- Disney Dining Plan meal entitlements
- Touch to Pay Functionality (at select locations)
MagicBand is fun and easy to use and a colorful keepsake when customized in advance.
Imagine if your vacation’s magical moments were captured for you and available for digital download. The Memory Maker product does just that, preserving those special moments for you so you can relax and simply enjoy the fun of being with your family and friends in the most magical place on Earth.
It starts with the team of Disney PhotoPass™ Photographers who’ll preserve magical memories for you and your family at hundreds of photo locations throughout Walt Disney World® Resort. All those great shots are magically captured: posing in front of Cinderella Castle, screaming down Splash Mountain® attraction, enjoying breakfast at Chef Mickey’s and so much more.
An unlimited array of the photos taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers during your vacation, PLUS photos at select attractions and dining locations, will be captured. Forget about having to purchase each photo individually – with Memory Maker you get digital copies of them all to download! You can relive all their memories and share them with family and friends.
Memory Maker Update – July 2014:
The Walt Disney World® Resort has made an enhancement to the Photo Imaging services and systems. Now, when you purchase and link Memory Maker, and also have a linked MagicBand, your attraction photos are automatically associated to your My Disney Experience account without having to stop at the photo counter to claim your photos.
