The first test recently rolled out at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, but now Disney is ready to start a new version of this testing at all three of Disney’s All-Star Resorts. As part of the MyMagic+ assessment, upon check in at one of these three resorts, guests will be issued only a MagicBand for use throughout their stay at the Walt Disney World Resort.
The schedule for roll out is as follows:
- Disney’s All-Star Sports – already receiving only MagicBands
- Disney’s All-Star Music – December 4
- Disney’s All-Star Movies – December 6
Any guest checking in on or after these dates will be issued only a MagicBand and not a separate Key To The World card/room key.
The testing procedure will continue as it has at Disney’s Pop Century. Guests will still be able to continue engaging in MyMagic+ testing in the same manner as any other resort guest. MagicBands will give guests access to all hotel and park activities, such as touch to pay, PhotoPass, touch to enter, and FastPass+. If guests did not customize and receive MagicBands prior to their vacations, they will be provided with a gray colored version at check in.
If a guest would prefer, a RF-enabled Key To The World card can be issued on request. This card will work in the same way the MagicBand would. One thing to note is that these Key To The World cards will not allow guests to obtain Legacy FASTPASS tickets as the magnetic strip on the back will be inactive. Guests who wish to utilize FastPass+ during their vacation may do so using the My Disney Experience app, visiting Guest Relations, or stopping at a MyMagic+ kiosk.
Disney’s Pop Century Resort will continue with its test, as well.
