It Really Is Magic! – Guest Blog Post

The MagicBands are up and running at the Walt Disney World Resort and they are Incredible!

The MagicBands are up and running at the Walt Disney World Resort and they are Incredible!

It may look similar to the James Bond Spy watch from 1965, but, it is oh so much more. The MagicBands are an all-in-one device and is a part of the New My Magic+

When you book your Walt Disney World package you will be given a link by your Travel Planner to log into Your My Disney Experience and associate your reservation. 60 Days prior to your arrival date you will be able to go into your planning center and Customize your MagicBand and it will be shipped directly to your home shortly after. The excitement already starts to build when you have your Magic Box show up at your door step!

The MagicBands are worn on your wrist and can be sized for all wrist sizes. They can be customized by color and with your name or nickname placed on the back of the band. Be sure to order your band prior to 11 days before you travel so you can have it shipped to your home. If you do a last minute booking, no worries, your band will be sent to the resort for when you check in.

The MagicBands can also be decorated with special accessories — MagicBandits and MagicSliders. One accessory that we found very helpful was the CoverBands. Because the bands are made out of magic rubber, a hot day can prove to be a little sweaty, but, with the CoverBand your wrist will remain comfortable and less sweaty. We felt it was worth the $6.95 for one – or you can purchase a pack of three for $15.95.

The bands are water proof, even for that long soak in the hot tub! So you don’t have to worry about losing your room key when you set it on the chair with the towel! You are wearing it!

Just rolled out this past weekend you can now use your MagicBand for your PhotoPass photos. We loved this feature as well – no fumbling for the card while trying to keep track of the kids and all your belongings. Simply pose for your photo and tap your band.

The MagicBand works with your FastPass+ choices that you will select before you arrive or once you get to the theme park. I highly recommend picking them prior to your arrival. We could not believe how much we loved this feature. We thought scheduling them ahead of time would be a pain, but, once you have used it and saw it in action we were sold! Remember the Fast Pass Dash? – Dad gathering all the Key to the World cards and running down Main Street to get the family their fast pass for Space Mountain? Well, now Dad can enjoy the stroll down Main Street with the rest of the family because you already know in advance that you WILL get on Space Mountain. Another really exciting feature with the FastPass+ is the Character Meet and Greet locations. If your daughter always wanted to meet Rapunzel, and you know that you cannot schedule a Character Meal with her, well you can schedule a FastPass + option for the Rapunzel Meet and Greet at the new Princess Fairytale Hall in the Magic Kingdom. You can leave home knowing your little one WILL meet Rapunzel.

All in all, you will love the benefits of the MagicBands. They are convenient, easy to use, fun to get delivered to your doorstep and to accessorize once you arrive.

Prepare for Battle as the Transformers Invade Orlando Florida

Humans, heed this warning. Megatron and his Decepticons are mobilizing for an attack that would decimate this planet. Only you can save mankind.

Earlier this week in Downtown Orlando, the Autobot and Decepticon war spilled out onto the streets.

The “faux” destruction in Downtown Orlando is a creation of Universal Orlando promoting their upcoming attraction, Transformers: The Ride-3D.

The giant silhouette is already visible from throughout the area, as far as I-4. An up-close view of the excitement can be seen at 135 W Central Blvd, though stationed N.E.S.T. agents are apparently keeping tight lipped what what events unfolded there.

Those who visit the N.E.S.T. facility at Universal Studios Florida can find out more, even straight from the robotic mouths of Optimus Prime and Megatron himself. (Bumblebee tends to remain silent.)

All in the Details: My What a Guy, Gaston! Exploring Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park

The preview period for New Fantasyland is now underway, which means more guests than ever are already experiencing fantastic new Magic Kingdom Park attractions that bring stories such as “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Dumbo” to life.

Exploring Gaston’s Tavern in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park

One of these locations is Gaston’s Tavern in Belle’s Village, where Gaston has made a few appearances so far, no doubt enjoying all of this excitement and attention.

A centerpiece of the village, which appears right in front of Gaston’s Tavern, is a fountain of Gaston and his sidekick, LeFou. According to the storyline of this area, the statue was a gift to the village from Gaston himself.

When you visit, don’t miss the inscription on the dedication plaque, which suits Gaston perfectly. Here, you find out that this “gift” is actually titled “A Tribute to Gaston” and bears the following inscription: “An extremely generous gift to the humble people of my village, from me, Gaston.”
