The one caveat: Before you can wave your MagicBand around, you’ve got to figure out how the system works. (It has been years in the making and outsiders suggest cost an estimated $1 billion dollars.) No date has yet been announced for the program to be introduced at Disney’s California parks, but it will be, Staggs said. If you’re heading to Walt Disney World, the first thing you need to do — once you’ve booked hotels and bought your park tickets — is set up a http://www.mydisneyexperience.com account and link everyone who is traveling with you so that you can book experiences and rides together and share photos. (Book the MemoryMaker package for $149 before your arrival and everyone in your travel group gets access to all of the photos taken by Disney photographers, as well as action shots on the attractions.) If you are an annual pass holder or staying at a Disney resort, including the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin just outside Epcot, you can start pre-booking rides and “experiences” 60 days in advance. You’ll get your personalized MagicBands free in the mail. If you are staying off-property, as long as you’ve booked your tickets, you can start scheduling experiences 30 days out. You can purchase MagicBands for $12.95, but your ticket also work at all of the touch-points. Anyone who has ever stood in a long line at Disney World knows this preplanning is no small thing.
