MyMagic+ Is Coming to Disneyland, Other Disney Parks in the Next Few Years

by Mommy Frog on January 2, 2015 4 Los Angeles

Hi there! Welcome to our weekly roundup of the most interesting theme park news around the Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando and other theme parks.

It was a short news week with the holiday, but here are this week’s theme park highlights:

  • MyMagic+ at DisneylandDisney is expected to roll out MyMagic+ to Disneyland and its other properties in the next couple of years, according to an Orlando Sentinel article. Tom Staggs, chairman of the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, says that guests should not expect carbon copies of the MyMagic+ system in place at Disney World, which includes MyDisneyExperience and FastPass+. He also said that while MyMagic+ is fully rolled out at Disney World, the powers that be are looking at adding additional features and functionality.
  • The Universal Orlando Resort will be celebrating 25 years in 2015. Behind the Thrills explores what will be happening at the parks this year.
  • There has been a baby boom in recent weeks at SeaWorld Orlando. A penguin baby boom to be exact! With eight hatchlings calling the park's Antarctica attraction home. While the chicks are being raised by their moms and dads in an area visible to guests, it's not easy to spot the small, huddled furry flock.
  • Rose Bowl teamsIt was a big week for Rose Bowl teams Florida State and Oregon, who both headed to Disneyland ahead of their big game! Congrats to the Ducks, who pulled off a 59-20 win over the Seminoles.
  • As if you needed more motivation, the Disney Parks Blog has offered up 15 reasons to visit Disney World in 2015!

That’s it for the theme park news this week. Have a great weekend and a hoppy New Year!

Hi Laura,

If you are staying at an on-site hotel, yes, you will receive magic bands directly from Disney. As for the tickets, you have the option to choose either physical or Etickets.

Hoppy Planning!

If I purchase tickets today for my trip which is in 7 days can I link them to our magic band? Will UT automatically send an email with the e ticket number? Also if the reservation is under my husbands name should I purchase the tickets under his name as well? If we need any customer service will I be able to call as his wife or just him? Thank you for your help.

Hi Michelle,

Yes, you may link UT tickets to your MagicBand through the My Disney Experience app. After placing your order, you'll receive a confirmation e-mail and another one with the tickets.

For contacting customer service, the UT order number will be fine.

Hoppy Planning!
