It's not too late to learn the lingo of Disney's MyMagic+ system, which is in the "test and adjust" stage at Walt Disney World. Here's a primer:
•MyMagic+: The umbrella label for the entire program, which allows Disney World guests to make reservations for theme-park rides and attractions days before arrival.
•FastPass+: The portion of MyMagic+ that makes reservations, which are entirely digital. The paper tickets used for the old FastPass system are no longer distributed. Reservations can be secured for select rides, shows, parades and fireworks. It is sometimes abbreviated as FP+, particularly on signs.
•MagicBands: Disney-distributed wristbands that keep track of FastPass+ reservations. Tapping a MagicBand against a scanner at each attraction verifies the identity of the FastPass+ holder. The bands also work as admission tickets to all four Disney parks.
Guests staying at hotels on Disney property use MagicBands as room keys and to make charges to their rooms throughout Disney World.
Disney already is selling character-related bling and other accessories for the bands.
Visitors not staying in a Disney hotel can buy the bands for $13.95, though that's not required because FastPass+ also can be used with a Disney-issued card. MagicBands have been made available to annual passholders free.
• My Disney Experience: The name of the website and smartphone app where guests can make reservations. Disney fans sometimes abbreviate it as MDX.
