Disney’s MagicBand+ wearable will be functional at Disneyland Resort starting this fall, the company announced Tuesday.
The first generation MagicBands were introduced at Walt Disney World in 2013, but never came to Disneyland, despite the resort using similar-looking touchpoints for tickets. MagicBand+ will be able to utilize those touchpoints, but also allow interactivity with a new game in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge called “Batuu Bounty Hunters.”
“Vibrations and lights from your MagicBand+ will help guide you to find virtual bounties,” Disneyland said in a press release. “When you find your bounty, you can use the augmented reality thermal viewer in the Play Disney Parks app to reveal who’s hiding in the shadows. Once your mission is successfully completed, local guild master Raga Bua will reward you with galactic credits.”
MagicBand+ will also light up in sync with nighttime shows at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, similar to its functionality with Disney World shows.
Disney had originally announced in November 2021 that MagicBand+ was coming to Disneyland, but had never revealed the debut timeframe.
