With the debut of Disney's MagicBand+ just around the corner, Disney is revealing more details about some of the interactive elements that will be unlocked by the new wearable device.

At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Star Wars Galaxy's Edge will be home to the 'Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters' game. Guests wearing the MagicBand+ will be able to join the guild to find virtual bounties hidden around Batuu. The MagicBand+ will use light patterns and haptic feedback for wayfinding.

With the mission complete, guests can visit the guild master for a reward of galactic credits, which can be virtually viewed via the Play Disney Parks app curtsey of augmented reality. Thanks to @BrookeGMcDonald on Twitter for the details.

Disney is yet to announce a specific date for the launch of MagicBand+ beyond "summer", but the latest speculation is that we will see bands on sale in June 2022, with pricing starting at $29.99. Learn more about MagicBand+.

Disney is currently in the process of installing the show elements on Batuu, with this construction wall currently in view near to the Ray and Chewy meet and greet area.

It’s impressive at Fantasmic when you are at the top of the amphitheater and watch everyone’s wrist light up in sinq.

The beautiful part about these during the shows is that they don't rely on your smartphone connection to change color. I was worried that I'd have to fight with it like I do with syncing the bounty hunter game, but all worked flawlessly as long as they were turned on.

Just reporting on some new functionality of MB+ I noticed: Soarin: Band now glows Sky Blue when exiting Epcot Forever: Band glows with the show

That is correct.

On one of the Disneyland Paris threads it was suggested they would be introduced there under the name "DisneyBand+" as MagicBand" was already trademarked in Europe. As the cruise line sails to Europe and other places, it could be that they need a name they can trademark globally.

I saw today that DCL was introducing "Disney Bands+" on the ships, which looked exactly like Magic Band+. Anyone know anything about WDC rebranding the bands in general?
