Have you heard the news? Disney MagicBand+ has launched at Walt Disney World resort and with it a new interactive experience, Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters! Today we’re sharing a complete guide to this new experience that’s only available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
What is Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters?
Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters is an augmented reality mobile game that guests can play in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This exclusive game uses both the Play Disney Parks app and the NEW Disney MagicBand+ wristband. In this game you’re led around Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in search of “virtual bounties” that are hidden behind locked doors and can be viewed through the app.
How to Play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters
As mentioned above, this interactive experience requires a Disney MagicBand+ and the free Play Disney Parks app, so make sure you have both of these before attempting to play! Start by launching the Play Disney Parks app on your smartphone and locate the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters game. Click the blue “Play” button to open the game.
The first step is finding the bounty board, which is located in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge next to Black Spire Station. (Your Play Disney Parks app will have a map showing you the way.) Once you’ve located the bounty board, tap your Disney MagicBand+ to the medallion on the board to be assigned a bounty.
Using your Disney MagicBand+, make your way through Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge searching for your bounty. The Disney MagicBand+ will light up green if you’re getting closer, red if you’re getting farther, and purple if your target is located. It will also vibrate short pulses when you’re getting closer and long pulses for getting farther.
Pro Tip: Bounties are always hiding behind a door, so if your Disney MagicBand+is glowing purple, look for doors nearby!
Once you’re seeing purple on your band, pull up your Play Disney Parks app and use the thermal scanner to identify the criminal behind the door. Tap the screen to report the criminal’s location to the bounty hunter’s guild. Next you’ll head to the Guildmaster’s Hideout to collect your credits. The Guildmaster’s Hideout is located across from Ronto Roaster in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Find the door to the Guildmaster’s Hideout and place your Disney MagicBand+ in the scanner to collect your credits!
Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters is available at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for guests who have a NEW Disney MagicBand+. With this guide you’ll be locating bounties around Batuu in no time!
