Some of the most popular Disney Parks Blog stories in 2015 have been about retail MagicBands. With only a few weeks left in this year, here is an update about new and upcoming retail MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort.
One of the most requested MagicBand colors this year was purple. In fall, we introduced a purple option for guests who create retail MagicBands at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom Park. I have even more exciting news! Soon, guests will be able to find an individual purple retail MagicBand in select Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations. This solid color retail MagicBand will join the other solid color MagicBands we currently offer. Look for the purple retail MagicBand in late December.
Another popular MagicBand request this year was for the Orange Bird which I discussed in a previous Disney Parks Blog article. This retail MagicBand was recently released along with a Princess Tiana MagicBand and a red holiday sweater pattern MagicBand featuring Mickey Mouse.
In addition to retail MagicBands, we have new MagicBand-its inspired by classic Disney characters and attractions at Disney Parks. These small accessories can be easily attached to the side of any MagicBand.
We’ve added new artwork to the previously mentioned Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. location. They include Orange Bird (which you can now have printed on eight different colors including orange or green as pictured). We also have A-E Tickets that are reminiscent of ticket books once used at Disney Parks until the early 1980s.
Finally, we will have two new MagicBands celebrating 2016 that will be released on January 1, 2016.
You may find select retail MagicBands using the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. Some retail MagicBands I mentioned may be available first on the app before being released in merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort. To download, please visit DisneyWorld.com/Shop.
