This week there has been a couple of new announcements for Walt Disney World regarding extra magic hours and MagicBand options. Looks like some exciting new things are coming to WDW! Let’s dive right into the news.


EXTRA, Extra Magic Hours

From September 1st to November 2nd 2019 Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests will have access to more Extra Magic Hours, being referred to as extra, Extra Magic Hours. This benefit is also available to guests of the following hotels: Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, Shades of Green® Resort, Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels, Four Seasons Resort Orlando, Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria Orlando.

Here are the details of the extra, Extra Magic Hours:

This sounds awesome! With it including Galaxy’s Edge it is a major benefit.


MagicBand Upgrades

Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests and annual pass holders are currently given a free solid color MagicBand with their name on it in their choice of colors. Soon you will have the option to upgrade yourf MagicBand at a discounted price from the standard solid color to one of the many character and special design options offered at WDW. The upgraded MagicBand discount will be $14.99 off of the regular retail price using the My Disney Experience website.

I for one am extremely excited about this! I love MagicBands and will definitely take advantage of this discount. What are your thoughts on these exciting new announcements?

Hello! My name is Cori. I am a huge Disney and Harry Potter Fanatic. I travel to Disney multiple times a year, whether it's Disney world, which I go to the most, Disneyland, a Disney Cruise, or one of the many other wonderful Disney Experiences. I also love to travel to new places and visit Universal every once in awhile to see Harry Potter. I spend a large amount of time researching all things Disney, so I thought it was only fitting that I start a blog to share my thoughts and findings, and I could not be more excited.
