It looks like long-range capabilities of the MagicBand’s will begin tomorrow at the Walt Disney World Resort. The park will begin testing a new process of delivering your on-ride photo to you on certain rides:
- Expedition Everest
- Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
- Space Mountain
- Splash Mountain
- Test Track
- Rock n Roller Coaster
- Tower of Terror
This will for now only work if you have purchased a Memory Maker. Once you ride one of above attractions, the on-ride photo will automatically be linked to your My Disney Experience account. You will also need a MagicBand for this method to work. It will not work with the plastic RFID cards.
This is the first use for long-range capabilities of the MagicBand’s and I am sure Walt Disney World will have more uses down the road.
