Just How Magic Are Magic Bands? Disney’s Shaking More Pixie Dust on Them Every Day!

Trust me, I was the biggest skeptic of them all when they debuted but I’m now on the bandwagon and trying to drive it!

Ever wondered what exactly you need to bring into the parks with you? Want to make sure you have everything you need but aren’t weighed down? Well, have no fear, I have a solution for you.
