Recently, Steven Miller shared with you three new MagicBand designs that you can expect to see at this year’s Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot. And there’s even more wearable fun to look forward to in March!
Fans can now show off their appreciation for the famous and Instagram-worthy Purple Wall at Magic Kingdom Park with a new, limited release “Meet Me at the Purple Wall” MagicBand. This MagicBand, which our team has carefully designed to match the exact color shade from the Purple Wall, will be available as part of a two-week flash sale on ShopDisney.com beginning March 5.
I recommend pairing the MagicBand with one of our “Meet Me at the Purple Wall” baseball caps, which can be purchased together during this flash sale for a discounted price.
Later in the month, we’ll be introducing a new grey Star Wars MagicBand showcasing the iconic symbols of the Rebel Alliance, the Galactic Empire and more. This limited release MagicBand debuts online March 12 and wherever MagicBands are sold at Walt Disney World Resort on March 16.
To help celebrate the 20th anniversary of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we are offering a Limited Edition MagicBand that shows off some of the amazing creatures you can expect to see during your visit. This brown MagicBand will be exclusively sold at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as part of an edition size of 2,000 and will be available March 21.
With your MagicBand, you can connect to the choices you make in the My Disney Experience app and unlock the magic of a Walt Disney World Disney vacation – from effortless theme park entry to Disney PhotoPass association, FastPass+ redemption, room entry with Online Check-In Service and more.
We are developing even more MagicBands for the month of April! I can’t give too much away, so be sure to check back with the Disney Parks Blog for the latest information about new MagicBand releases.
Is there an actual color paint name for the purple wall? Would love to have my own purple wall at home.
I realise only the standard coloured magic bands are issued when staying at one of the resorts (I’m assuming they’re free? )
We’re abroad so does that mean we pick up our bands at check in?
And what if we wanted an animated/ patterned/themed version. Can we request this and pay the difference. Or do we just go out and find one to purchase once we are at the parks? What happened with the standard issue?
Hi Erika! When you select your MagicBands online they will be available for pick up at check-in at your Resort and are complimentary. As for the graphic MagicBands they are available for purchase once you arrive to the Parks and can be linked to your My Disney Experience account and be used for your visit. Upon arrival, if you have any questions the Cast at the Resort will be able to assist you! Have a great visit!
Thanks for keeping us updated on the latest MagicBands! Will there be an Easter 2018 MagicBand? I’ve been checking everyday and hoping it would show up.
HI Gregory, no there was no Easter 2018 MagicBand this year. But be on the look out for a variety of new MagicBands in the next week.
I’m looking on your shop site and can’t find the new Star Wars magicband that was scheduled to be released today (3/12). Is it up on the site somewhere? Thanks!
Hi Jorge! The Vintage Star Wars print MagicBand is available on Shop Disney Parks app right now and will be on ShopDisney.com beginning next week. Hope this helps! Erika
What exactly does this do for me?
Does the meet me at the wall have special effects when swiped at a touch point? I’m specifically looking for one a little extra. 😉
Hi Richelle, generally we keep those surprise and delight effects that you see at the touch points to our Limited Edition MagicBands only.
Hi Erika My husband and I are coming with the whole family in September. Our oldest granddaughter (6) loves Halloween. Can you tell me if there will be a 2018 Halloween magic band?
Hi Athena! I’m glad to hear you will be visiting us in September. I hope you have a wonderful trip. Please keep watching Disney Parks Blog as we’ll share details about Halloween products closer to fall.
Can you please explain the “purple wall” craze. Did I miss something.? I have no idea what that is about. Thanks.
Hi Janet! The Purple Wall at Magic Kingdom has become just one of the many walls here at Walt Disney World that have generated Instagram buzz! Jennifer wrote a great post about it and you can check it out here: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2017/11/9-walls-disney-parks-super-fans-deem-instagram-worthy/
Erika, really enjoying these new designs and color options for the MagicBand (one word). 😉 Glad to see your work being published and looking forward to order magical options coming from the MagicBand team.
Hi Mark! Thanks for the positive comment, we have loved being able to connect with fans of the MagicBand and look forward to showcasing even more fun new designs and colors in the future!
I’ll be in Disney on those dates. Anyone know if the hat will be sold at parks or in the stores or if I should grab it online?
Hi James, the hat and MagicBand will only be sold as a combo deal online during these two weeks! However, you can find the ball cap available now: https://www.shopdisney.com/meet-me-at-the-purple-wall-baseball-cap-for-adults-1462070
Does the Icon (center fob) on the Purple Wall Magicband match the wall color too, or just the printing? If so, sounds perfect for a MagicKeeper!
Hi Hastin, yes the center icon of the Purple Wall MagicBand has been carefully crafted to match THE wall itself! I think this would look so great in a Mickey MagicKeeper!
Is there any talk lof Disneyland adding the magic bands?
Hey Jeff, as of right now we haven’t heard anything. We’ll keep you posted here on the blog should that change.
Hi Erika, is the new “Purple Wall” band a Limited Release? Or just an Open Edition? Curious about the price on that one. Thanks!
Hi Ethan, yes this is a Limited Release MagicBand and is only available to purchase for two weeks.
So disappointing that only some bands are available online. EBay sellers make a killing off us poor saps that don’t live anywhere close to the parks.
HI Philip, a majority of our MagicBands are actually available online prior to their release in the park. We do have a few ‘exclusive to the park MagicBands’–but I hope that you are able to purchase the ones you like best!
