As I predicted back on April 11th, new Signature MagicBands were released in Walt Disney World. A few were put out early in Downtown Disney on Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015. The Minnie bands were officially released on Friday, April 24th, 2015 throughout the resort.
The Mickey and Minnie MagicBands were the first ever graphic MagicBands to be sold on DisneyStore.com. They were released for sale on the website on June 30, 2015.

Around June and July of 2015, DisneyStore.com released updated versions of the Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto, and Goofy Signature MagicBands with an autograph that matches what they sign in the theme parks. This change was made after a number of internal Cast Members at Walt Disney World complained about the mismatch between what is on the band and what the character signs. These new bands will eventually fully replace the old ones at the theme parks once leftover stock of the originals are sold out. You can read more details about it here.
