MagicBand+ officially launched at Walt Disney World this morning but guests continue to have issues pairing and updating their new bands.
In order to access all MagicBand+ features, it must be paired via Bluetooth to My Disney Experience. Some guests are reportedly having issues getting their bands to connect.
Cast Members told us that some of the solid-colored MagicBand+ bands are being pulled from shelves because they are unable to connect. These include navy, cream, and red bands.
Guests are also required to update their MagicBand+ before using it. Unfortunately, because the bands don’t come fully charged (it’s not unusual for technology to loose charge in the shipping process), they aren’t able to update.
The app informs guests that the MagicBand+ must be at least 60% charged to update. MagicBand+ does include a charging cable.
