'MagicBand-only' coming to all remaining Walt Disney World Resort hotels by end of January

Jan 04, 2014 in "MyMagic+"

The MyMagic+ 'MagicBand-only' testing is set to expand from the Pop Century and All Star Resorts test to include all Walt Disney World Resort hotels by the end of January 2014.

With 'MagicBand-only', guests will be given a MagicBand in place of the Key to the World Card for all MyMagic+ functions, including park admission, touch-to-pay, touch-to-enter, and FastPass+. 

Key to the World cards can still be requested, but are not available for regular FASTPASS use. This means that by the end of January 2014, all Walt Disney World Resort Guests will be using FastPass+, and will not have access to the legacy FASTPASS system.

The rollout for 'MagicBand-only' is as follows.

  • Jan. 6 – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
  • Jan. 7 – Disney’s Port Orleans Resort
  • Jan. 8 – Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
  • Jan. 9 – Disney’s Old Key West Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Spring Resort & Spa
  • Jan. 10 – Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
  • Jan. 13 – Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
