In recent weeks Walt Disney World has been testing a lot of new interactive features in some of their attractions including Rock ‘n’ roller Coaster. The testing is a part of MyMagic+ and is connected to guests wearing their MagicBands. We have previously seen testing first being done at Magic Kingdom at the It’s A Small World ride and now it’s Haunted Mansion’s turn.

WATCH:

At the popular end of the ride “where a ghost follows you home” a couple of new scenes have been added that work together with your MagicBand. One scenes shows the ghosts taking an old school picture of you and then your name shows up on a tombstone. In the second scene I experienced a ghost holding up a document with my home state written on it. Both scenes are incredibly clear and worked like a charm to the delight of both me and the many guests around me.

This is probably just a small sample of the interactive elements the MagicBands will have in the future and will surely be a great addition to the parks.

No word has been given by Disney how long this test will go on and therefore we have no guarantee it will be working when you experience the ride.

    Um, no. That is not an improvement in my opinion. What does the one sign even say?

    Last night our sign said, “Florida, here we come.” We are from Orlando. :)

    All all all when does Disney do anything spectacular without having some bugs in it. These things will be fixed before it goes live so to say. I think this as so many other things will be Disney awesome. Give it a little time, they could just do the testing with random employees but Disney wants you to be part of it. Take it for what it is a new fangled idea that just needs some ironing out.

    I love the new enhancements and hope they add even more. They were just coming online during our last trip and we accidentally stumbled upon them. It was so awesome! It can greatly enhance and customize the experience. I can only imagine the great ways they will extend this tech. And if you don’t want it you don’t have to use the magic bands. We don’t come to Disney to go to an “amusement park”. We come for a special experience and Disney magic, and this delivers. Add more MyMagic+ !
