MagicBand+ Sold With Little to No Battery; Guests Required to Charge Before Use

    The MagicBand+ is finally being sold at Disney World, but the rollout today is not without issues. The most notable issue that guests are experiencing is little to no charge on the MagicBand+ when they purchase it. Managers that we spoke with said that they aim to deliver the MagicBand+ with at least 50% charge, but even then that isn’t enough charge for guests to begin using the MagicBand+ as intended.

    As you can see below, the MagicBand+ requires at least a 60% charge to update, and there is a day one update that guests are told to install before using the MagicBand+. One of our bands had very little charge when we purchased it, although an exact charge percentage wasn’t displayed. When we were pairing the MagicBand+ we were told that there was an update available, but that the band did not have enough charge to complete the update.

    This likely won’t be limited to a “day one” issue depending on how long MagicBand+ stock sits on the shelves and how long the idle battery is good for. Disney said that guests can expect 1-3 days of use on a single charge, but only Disney knows how long a MagicBand+ can sit on a shelf without being charged. Our advice would be to expect to charge your MagicBand+ before using it if purchasing at the theme parks.

    1. LOL.
      I can’t get over how cheap and terrible they are at everything now! And people will still eat up and defend this slop!
      None of this is acceptable for what you’re paying to visit here.
