The Disney MagicBand+ is one of the best ways to enhance a Walt Disney World vacation. The wearable all-in-one device allows Guests to store their tickets, photo pass information, Genie+, Lightning Lane sections, and room key. It can also be used to store payment information and it will also light up, vibrate, and interact with certain nighttime shows.

As such, Disney continues to design and sell an ever-changing selection of MagicBands, featuring different characters and movies. They recently released a new MagicBand that features Ariel from the upcoming live action The Little Mermaid (2023) film set to release later this month.

The Upcoming Movie

The latest remake stars Halle Bailey as Ariel, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Jonah Hauer King as Prince Eric, and Javier Bardem as King Triton. It will also feature the voice talents of Daveed Diggs as Sebastian, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, and Awkwafina as Scuttle. The live action film has a May 26, 2023 release date and has received a fair amount of controversy. There has been pushback on Walt Disney Studios over its casting of characters, the changing of song lyrics, the quality of CGI, and the film’s overall tone.

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
