All Central Florida Cast Members will soon be eligible to receive one complimentary MagicBand for their personal visits to Walt Disney World in their off time. To receive it, starting October 20th, they will need to customize it and order their own MagicBand on MyDisneyExperience.com by December 31, 2014. The MagicBand will then be sent to their homes in a special commemorative box. Cast Members will be able to use it interchangeably with their Main Entrance Pass for theme park admission and FastPass+ redemption. They’ll be able to book FP+ reservations up to 7 days in advance.
I’m not yet sure if the MagicBand is anything special or in just a solid color, but we’ll post a picture of the box as soon as we see it! Rumors going around say that Cast Members will be eligible to pick purple as a MagicBand color, but I highly doubt it will be true.
How do I order my magic band?
You need to be a Central Florida Cast Member hired and working before October 21st. You need to order by December 31, 2014 to get a free one in the special box. You need to add your Gate Pass ID to the My Disney Experience website.
Does this mean they don’t have to use the guest pass cards? Can everyone in the party use a magic band now?
Yes, CM’s can use MagicBands now.
