We know you’ve been waiting patiently for more information on MagicBand+ before its debut on July 27. And this morning, we noticed that the My Disney Experience app allows us to add our MagicBand+ to the roster of paired MagicBands, and unlocks some of its features.
We were prompted to pair our MagicBand+ to our phone via Bluetooth.
Luckily, the app presented us with a how-to guide. This wasn’t available in the app before, so we never knew how to pair.
The steps to pair our MagicBand+ via bluetooth were as follows:
- Find the button on the back of your band.
- Hold down for 3 seconds and release.
- The band will vibrate and pulse blue.
To fully enjoy our MagicBand+, we were asked to ensure the band was fully updated.
With pairing complete, we were greeted with a selection of new features. But first, we needed to update.
We are now able to access a new menu where we can see how much battery life our MagicBand+ has, if it is correctly paired, pick a light up theme, and a settings option.
Choosing a light up theme will affect what color your MagicBand+ will glow!
From an icon on the home screen of the app, we were prompted to visit the “Your MagicBands and More” page to “Discover More with MagicBand+.” This opens up info on some of the new experiences coming with MagicBand+ like the Fab 50 statue interactive capabilities and Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters.
More information is given and the “Play now!” link is there, but the game will not go live until July 27 when the bands officially debut.
