New Retail MagicBands and MagicKeeper Colors Kicking Off 2018

Recently, I announced two new MagicBand colors coming to Walt Disney World Resort, and we are already seeing great excitement from guests who are wearing them around the theme parks. I wanted to share another sneak peek at new MagicBands that are set to release in January, and a few more that have launched over the past few days.

With the introduction of MagicBand 2, Guests now have the opportunity to make their MagicBand truly customizable by swapping out the center icon and placing it in a different color MagicBand or even one of our popular MagicKeeper accessories. With the debut of the I Am Mickey MagicBand, we have taken care of the customization for you. This item pays homage to Mickey Mouse in a new and sleek way with a black MagicBand and yellow center icon. This first ever pre-customized MagicBand is currently available for $22.99 wherever MagicBands are sold.

For the Aladdin and Jasmine admirers out there, our latest Limited Edition MagicBand for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday depicts the couple on their moonlit carpet ride over Agrabah. This teal MagicBand is now available with an edition size of 2,400 and retails for $32.99.

You may have noticed over the past year some of your favorite attractions now have their very own MagicBand such as The Pirates of the Caribbean and The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Beginning Jan. 15, thrill seekers and fans of Expedition Everest at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be able to purchase a red MagicBand complete with icons and patches representative of this train ride through the Himalayan Mountains. This Limited Release MagicBand will retail for $27.99 and be available in stores only.

Also, this month, in honor of the theatrical release of 101 Dalmatians in 1961, we’ll be releasing our first-ever MagicBand to feature Pongo, Perdita and a few of those famous paw prints. This white MagicBand will be available Jan. 22 online and in select retail locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort on Jan. 26 and retail for $22.99.

Lastly, I am so excited to share with you that we have launched three new colors to our current MagicKeeper line: blue, pink and purple. These MagicKeepers allow even more customization as Guests can swap icon colors to create new, fun looks. As always, these MagicBands and MagicKeepers continue to allow guests to connect the vacation choices they make in My Disney Experience – from effortless theme-park entry, to Online Check-In, Disney PhotoPass association and more.


Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for the latest information and future announcements about new MagicBand releases. There are so many new, exciting things just around the corner and I can’t wait to share them with you!


  • Hi Erika, thanks for the great info.

    I’m interested in getting a Genie Magicband for me and a Belle Magicband for my wife to celebrate our first ever trip (and honeymoon) at Disney World this coming November. I was told you can actually pick a design and customize the band with words, names, etc in addition to the graphic if you buy the Magicbands at the stores in the parks. Is that true? Is there more than one Genie and Belle design to choose from at parks in addition to the pre-made ones you can buy online? Either way, would you recommend waiting to buy them at the park so we can customize them with names, etc on the outer band?

    Any and all info is truly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Hayden! Great choice of characters for your MagicBands! Our designs at the MagicBand on Demand locations are ever changing so I’m not sure if they’ll be here in November. However, if you are interested in this route there will be tons of characters, graphics and more to choose from when you arrive. Have a wonderful honeymoon and congrats!

  • we are staying on property this summer and love the fun magic bands. Can you order them and have shipped like usual or are we stuck with just the regular colors to choose from?

    • Hi Julie! For Guest’s staying on property you have the option to choose from one of the eight solid colors as a complimentary MagicBand. You can also purchase a MagicBand from Shop Disney in advance and link that to your My Disney Experience account and use it for the length of your stay! Have a great trip!

  • I ordered the Tinker Bell Magic band and received it today. Tinker Bell is my all-time favorite Disney character but there doesn’t seem to be alot of Tinker Bell merchandise. I’ve looked all over the internet for anything Tinker Bell and the choices are somewhat limited. Is Disney planning to release any new Tinker Bell merchandise in the near future?

    • Karen, I’m so happy to hear you like the MagicBand. Keep checking Shop Disney to see what new merchandise is coming out and as always keep reading the Disney Parks Blog!

  • Hi can you tell me what these bands are used for, I’m going to Disney in a couple of weeks! I’m interested!
