Yes, Disney is going high tech!….If ONLY they could get that wi-fi to work a bit better in the parks
TAKING THE DISNEY GUEST EXPERIENCE TO THE NEXT LEVEL:
These have been popping up at the parks and are in a “soft” opening and being used sporadically. I am curious to see how well it will all work once it is completed.

The goal of MyMagic+ is to make it easier for Guests to create the Disney experience they’ve been dreaming of — from securing a visit to a favorite attraction in advance … to a digital guide that simplifies how they move through the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Theme Parks … to the touch of a MagicBand that seamlessly connects all their plans — allowing them to enjoy each moment like never before.
Here’s a look at some of the key features of MyMagic+. We’ll be sharing more information as these become available to your Guests over the coming year.
My Disney Experience
My Disney Experience (website and app) will simplify the online experience for our Guests, making it easy for them to plan their Walt Disney World experience in advance and navigate the Parks during their stay.
Disney’s FASTPASS Service has always been a great way for Guests to save their place in line. Now we’re taking this service to the next level with Disney FastPass+, which allows Guests to reserve Disney FastPass+ selections before they even leave home, enabling them to lock in the “must do” experiences at the Parks. The system is also flexible, allowing Guests to change their plans throughout their trip.
The MagicBand will become Guests’ key to the world. Touch to enter. Touch to pay. The MagicBand makes it that simple.
