One of my favorite things Disney invented was the MagicBand. If you don’t know what a MagicBand is, it is an all in one wristband that makes your vacation very convenient. The band is your room key, park ticket, photopass card, fastpass, dining reservation and even your charge card if you are staying in a Disney resort hotel.The MagicBand is something I love to wear, and even accessorize my outfit with when at the parks.
These bands are waterproof, and can be adjusted for adult and kid sizes. Coming in a variety of colors, they are free if you stay in the resort, as they are your room key. But, you can buy ones with different designs. Most of them are open edition, but there a few special edition that you can get at certain parks or during different events! And, at Disney Springs and Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom, you can make a custom one! Here are a few I’ve loved:

I will never forget the first time I saw pins. It was a beautiful April day, and I was in Hollywood Studios. We went into the tiny outdoor store under the sorcerer hat, and I just saw rows upon rows of pins. I browsed, but did not buy any. Flash forward a year and a half to the first week of my first college program in August of 2014, and I bought myself a red polka dot Minnie lanyard with a Union Jack Mickey pin and an Elsa pin. Little did I know that was the beginning of something I would come to collect and take appreciation of.
Pin trading began at the Walt Disney World resort in the summer of 2000, as part of a special event for the Olympics that year. Within a few years, it expanded, and people were hooked. Pins are now sold throughout the entire Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts, as well as online, on the Shop Disney parks app, Disney Store online, and even the resorts around the world!

This is one quintessential item that every Disney go-er needs. It’s an iconic thing that never goes out of style, and only grows better with age. That would be a pair of ears. Whether you are not even a year old or ninety years old, every park goer needs at least one pair of ears in their life. It’s a timeless tradition. I remember the first pair of ears my parents bought me on my first trip to Disney; in fact, I still have them displayed in my room today as inspiration. Continue reading “The Ears Have It!”
