Guests sailing on the Disney Fantasy this summer are reporting that they can purchase DisneyBand+ for their upcoming cruises. DisneyBand+ debuted on the Disney Wish in June 2023. At the time, there was no word when the bands would be released across the fleet. The cruise on July 29, 2023, will be the first on the Fantasy to use the DisneyBand+.
What is DisneyBand+?
DisneyBand+ is a waterproof wristband designed to make certain parts of your vacation easier. From boarding the ship on embarkation day to accessing your stateroom, paying for onboard items with a valid payment card, and more, DisneyBand+ brings convenience—and a bit of magic—to your cruise.
Is DisneyBand+ rechargeable?
Yes. DisneyBand+ has a rechargeable battery. Don’t forget to pack the charger that comes with it!
How much does a DisneyBand+ cost?
Solid bands cost $34.99, and themed designs cost $44.99, plus tax.
How long does the battery on a DisneyBand+ last?
Depending on an individual’s band use, the battery can last an estimated 1 to 3 days when fully charged. For optimal usage, it is recommended you charge your DisneyBand+ overnight.
Can I use my DisneyBand+ at Disney theme parks around the world?
Your DisneyBand+ for Disney cruises can be used at Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort.
Will my existing MagicBand work on Disney Cruise Line ships?
No. Previous versions of MagicBand are currently not supported on Disney Cruise Line ships. However, you can use MagicBand+ as a DisneyBand+ on your Disney cruise.
What phones are compatible with DisneyBand+?
DisneyBand+ can pair with most smart devices, including Android and Apple devices.
I do not live in the United States. Will you ship my DisneyBand+ internationally?
Unfortunately, DisneyBand+ orders can only be shipped to valid US addresses. For Guests outside the United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, DisneyBand+ will be available for purchase at select onboard merchandise locations (subject to availability). United States residents can visit Bands & More to select and purchase their bands. When you customize your DisneyBand+, you’ll be asked to provide a valid US shipping address.
How to order
Order a DisneyBand+ by visiting My Reservations between 11 and 45 days of your sail date if your reservation is paid in full (while supplies last). Shipping is available to US addresses only (excluding PO Boxes, APO, FPO, DPO, or any cruise ports).
