Almost a decade after the MagicBand was first introduced at Walt Disney World in Florida, the device is finally launching on the West Coast. Disneyland said Tuesday that it'll begin offering the next-gen version of the wearable, the MagicBand Plus, in the fall.
Guests can use their rechargeable MagicBand Plus as their park entry ticket and link their Lightning Lane passes and Photopass photos. No word yet on when it can be used to pay for dining and merchandise at Disneyland, or as a Disney hotel room key -- both of which are capabilities of the Disney World version.
The MagicBand Plus will also vibrate, glow and pulsate in time to the music and fireworks during nighttime spectaculars like World of Color at California Adventure and Fantasmic at Disneyland.
You'll also be able to join the bounty hunting interactive quest in Batuu, the Star Wars-themed area of Disneyland, using the MagicBand Plus.
Disney has yet to announce the launch date of the wearable, or the pricing, though it costs $45 at Disney World. Disney World MagicBand Plus wearables will be compatible at Disneyland.
