My Family’s Disney Magic Bands as we embark on our Disney vacation.

Mickey-to-Mickey

Disneyland, the inspired place Walt Disney created in the 1950s, was only the beginning of a new type of family entertainment. Soon after Disneyland’s opening, Walt began to design and construct the 40-square-mile, swamp-turned-utopia that is Walt Disney World. It is home to 34 hotels, 4 theme parks, 2 water parks, the most trafficked shopping center in the world and an endless array of activities. The amount of options available for crafting one’s special getaway are staggering. So, to further streamline both the logistic and emotional experience of the guests, Walt Disney Imagineering created a revolutionary product for each guest to use throughout the Happiest Place on Earth: The Disney Magic Band.
