    For Magic Bands, can you 'unlock' surprises? What exactly do they mean? (It's my first time)

    Hi Hibiscus,

    MagicBands are an integral part of having Disney Vacation Planning Magic at Your Fingertips! They use Radio Frequency (RF) and touch point technologies to allow you to: effortlessly access your Disney Resort hotel room, enter Disney Theme Parks and Water Parks, retrieve dining reservations, check-in to your FastPass+ selections, use for charging privileges, connect to your Disney PhotoPass® Service images, upload attractions Videos and unlock some magical surprises, personalized just for you!

    Now, regarding that last part about how MagicBands also unlock special surprises, these will depend on each individual family's experience throughout the Resort. Below I've listed some of the magical surprises my family has discovered during previous visits.

    1. Haunted Mansion in Magic Kingdom Park: the hitchhiking ghosts have listed our names or our state at the end of the ride.
    2. "it's a small world": the ride identified us as being part of the 'small world' on the screens near the exit.
    3. Space Mountain: the TV screens showed our names with little sayings. The screens are found as you ascend the moving walkway.
    4. RELAUNCHED! Mission: SPACE in Epcot: used our names and hometown during the ride.
    5. Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith in Disney's Hollywood Studios: at the end of the ride the screens have displayed our names on the signs.
    6. Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: the screens in the final room prior to loading the ride show 'advertisement posters.' Some of our names have been displayed as the person(s) being quoted in the ad.
    7. Disney's Art of Animation Resort personalized the lobby posters just for our family.
