Update to My Disney Experience web site addresses common MagicBand complaint

Jul 22, 2015 in "MyMagic+"

Disney has rolled out an update to the My Disney Experience website to give some guests the option to opt-out of receiving an additional MagicBand.


Visitors to our forums frequently comment on how they have a huge stockpile of MagicBands at home, with a new MagicBand being sent automatically with every Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation.

The new update gives those guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel the option to opt-out of receiving a band, with the proviso that they have an existing MagicBand already active on the My Disney Experience account, and that the existing MagicBand is less than 1 year old. MagicBands have a non-replaceable battery, so the operational lifespan is limited.

You will need to opt-out each time you make a reservation if you wish to use an existing MagicBand, and if you change your mind, you can opt back in to get a new MagicBand.

The update is so far only live on the My Disney Experience website, and is not yet available on the phone apps.
