The Disney Parks Blog today showed off a new unboxing video and included in the video was a preview of the new 2016 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival Limited Edition MagicBand! This is limited to 2500 total, and because it’s Limited Edition, it should make some type of lights and sounds at entry and/or FastPass+ touch points in Epcot. This will retail for $32.99 and is being released on March 2nd, 2016.
One interesting thing to note… This year they are only making 2500 of these which, unlike last year, had 5000 and still sold out before the end of the festival. Of course that was with the super popular Frozen Fever design at the time, but I still see 2500 going rather quickly.
Here’s a preview from the My Disney Experience website:

Was just about To email this. Figured you had seen it haha
Looks more like a drawing than their typical graphics bands.
?Maybe a prototype?
If not, maybe they are going for more of their retro stuff again.
Either way, it does not really get the “Flower and Garden” theme across to me very well.
Sure there is a flower, I give them that….and is that a topiary Mickey?
What does the other side look like?
Not to be negative, but definitely not up to what I would expect for Disney and one of its several months long event.
Figment is the main character for this year’s festival. I’m curious what the box will look like.
Yay! I love figment! Ill definitely be getting this one!
where will these be sold?
Throughout Epcot. You will find them at the Flower & Garden merchandise kiosks that will be set up in Future World.
How long do these typically last? I won’t be able to make it until May 8th, is that too late?
It very well could be gone by then, considering there will only be 2500. But you never know. Sometimes they release only a certain amount per day so they last the whole festival.
I love it! More “movement” and use of foreground/background than a lot of the bands. But I’m a Figment fan, so I’m biased. Can’t wait to see what the lights & sounds are!
How much is gonna cost?
And will this magic band do anything special with the green light when used to get in the park, or fastpass ride?
Hi Gleilson, it says this info right in the article. $32.99. This is limited to 2500 total, and because it’s Limited Edition, it should make some type of lights and sounds at entry and/or FastPass+ touch points in Epcot.
Is there any way to purchase these online, if we’re not going to Disney until towards the end of the Flower and Garden Festival?
They will most likely only be available at Epcot, but you should check the Shop Disney Parks app in early March anyway just to see if it appears online. Otherwise eBay is your only hope.
You may call me crazy due to time but I just checked on the shop app.
It’s there. With image of box and all. Just ordered.
Thanks for the info Brian!
I would love this. Have not been to Disney in 30 years. Going early May. Figment was my favorite in 1986.
Will there be a special gift card like last year?
Yep, it looks like this:
Do you know if these are going to be sold only in the kiosks on the weekends or all over epcot throughout the festival?
At the kiosks, but they are open daily in Future World.
Going beginning of April. Do you think there will be some still then?
That’s a tough call… there should be in April.
We’re arriving on the 1st of April!
The figment magic band is available on the Disney Shop Parks App now! Grab one while you can!
Thanks so much Chris – just ordered one for my Figment-loving little girl’s Easter basket!

Add to collection!
Happy don’t have to drive for 4 hrs to get it. !!
