In 2013 Walt Disney World introduced MagicBands, which are wristbands that feature a radio-frequency identification (RFID) chip. MagicBands are linked to the guest’s theme park admission tickets, their FastPass+ reservations, their Disney hotel key, their Disney PhotoPass information, and can be linked to their credit card for on-property charges.
Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel receive one MagicBand per guest for free. Granted, these free MagicBands are just basic colors. Guests can purchase MagicBands online or on Walt Disney World property which range in price from about $13 to $48 and come in a wide variety of colors and themes.
