It’s no secret that MagicBands at Walt Disney World haven’t been the overwhelming experience that was promised. However, Disney has quietly begun to deliver on that promise to make the band more than a dull FastPass+/credit card/room key combo.
The latest iteration of this can now be seen at the finale to “it’s a small world,” where Disney has in recent days added three screens that display the names of guests (all in lower case, of course) in the ride boats. The effect is triggered by detecting the guest’s MagicBands. A FastPass+ is not necessary.
