UPDATE: This band is now available in the Shop Disney Parks mobile app.
The new Beauty and the Beast MagicBand is now out and available at the Magic Kingdom. The band, which I posted about just a few days ago, has appeared in the Frontier Trading Post shop. It’s unclear at this time if it’s out for sale anywhere else, as it may have been released a bit early at this one specific store. Special thanks to reader Ryan for sending in some pictures and some details.
As I mentioned earlier, the band is blue, shows Belle (played by Emma Watson) in her yellow dress, and is Limited Edition 2500. I don’t yet have a video of the touch point special effects for this band.
Band is now available on the Disney parks app for purchase.
What stores have it
Probably. I will know soon and post them here.
I tried multiple touchpoints at MK and Epcot today and there were no special effects yet
Thank you, keep trying! Hopefully in the next few days the effects will be turned on.
Doesn’t say that it’s LE
It says “Limited Edition 2500” right on the box in the picture. Right underneath the MagicBand. Any band that comes in a special box is always Limited Edition.
Glad this is available online now. We went to the park yesterday to the Trading Post and they stared at us like they had no idea what we were talking about. Then a manager came out and said they were “sold out” and they were accidentally released too early in the store and that’s how some people go them. So we left empty handed only to find them online today.
One wonders if these “accidents” are truly that – if memory serves, that’s 3 in a row (Small World, Valentines, and now this one) that were “accidentally” put on the shelves early. Hmmmmmm… 🙂
The boxes of the recent LE magicbands are getting better.
Got mine on Monday at the “Emporium” in MK. They also had them for sale at the “Box Office Gifts” in the Theatre.
You may also buy online at the Disney store.
When you purchase this magic band online do they include your name on it like the regular colored bands?
Also – do you have any idea how often they come out with new ones? I’m hoping they come out with a Cars one when Cars 3 comes out this summer!
It seems they releae a new Limited Edition band around once per month or so on average.
No they do not.
I am at MK and I haven’t noticed a special effect at touch points.
