Guests staying on Walt Disney World Property have always been able to select a complimentary MagicBand. These bands were plain colors but were essentially all you needed for your Walt Disney World vacation.
The band acted as a room key, key to amenities at the resorts, a credit card and your Disney Dining Plan (when available). As of January this year, Disney has discontinued the complimentary MagicBands for resorts guests. Guests still have the option to purchase a MagicBand for their stay. Many for as low as $5.
Disney is working hard to roll out a new offering that will utilize the My Disney Experience app to do even more than the MagicBand. Housing not only your card and resort information but also allowing you to access all of the current My Disney Experience offerings and more all in one convenient place.
Guests who don’t wish to purchase a Magic Band will be issued a Key to the World card (what is used at Disneyland and also Disney Cruise Line) for resort and park entry.
Park and Property Protocols
Disney is maintaining that guests, regardless of vaccination, must continue to wear a proper face covering at all times while on Disney property except when actively eating or drinking in designated locations.
Disney is continuing their social distancing requirements as well as the mask requirements that are in place and all additional health and safety protocols including temperature checks.
“I will tell you what our expectations are in terms of the state of the world by then. We have no doubt, and when we reopen up in parks that were closed, or increase the capacity, that we’ll have some level of social distancing and mask-wearing for the remainder of this year.
That’s our expectation. But, I believe that Dr. Fauci said earlier today that he hopes that there is vaccines for everyone who wants them by April this year. If that happens, that is a game-changer
And that could accelerate our expectations, and give people the confidence that they need to come back to the parks. Will there be overlap until we know that we have herd immunity? Sure there will. But do we believe we’ll be in the same state of 6 foot social distance and mask wearing in ’22? Absolutely not.”Disney CEO Bob Chapek
Everywhere on Disney property including Disney Springs, Resorts and parks require that all guests comply with the health and safety protocols in place including mask wearing. Failure to comply will result in the guest being asked to leave property and could result in a permanent ban.
