MyMagic+ Coming To Disney Cruise Line!

dclIn true Disney fashion, changes are coming to Disney Cruise Line.  And in even MORE true Disney fashion, they’re really exciting!  With the successes of MyMagicPlus including MagicBands and the positive feedback from guests about them, Disney is now making plans to add MyMagic+ including MagicBands to their Disney Cruise Line fleet.

A full release date has not been released yet, though they have been doing beta testing in recent months and guests have been very happy with the convenience and ease of the MagicBands.  Since it will take a lot of time to install readers and change the logistics on all the ships, I don’t look for a full release across the entire DCL fleet until sometime after 2015.
