As predicted in an earlier post, today Steven Miller from Disney Parks Blog announced five (5) new Open Edition MagicBands! These MagicBands include Ariel, Cinderella Castle, Belle, Tinker Bell, and Toy Story characters. Each band will be $19.95 plus tax and will be sold on the following dates:
- Ariel and Cinderella Castle – Jan. 16, 2015
- Belle – Jan. 23, 2015
- Tinker Bell and Toy Story Characters (Woody and Buzz Lightyear) – Jan. 30, 2015
These are not expected to make any special lights/sounds at entry and FP+ touchpoints besides the normal green Mickey head and sound.
When you say a open edition what that means…I’m gonna be at Disney in May so they gonna have this MB in that date? I really want a different no a plain one! Thanks
Open Edition means they will sell them all year (meaning not limited) and yes, they will all be there in May.
Oh great news then, thank you so much!
So are they just decorative/collectable? If they don’t make sound or light at FP touch points I would assume they are not live bands?
They are real bands, but only the Limited Edition bands make special lights/sounds (besides the standard green Mickey head and normal *bling* sound). Its always been that way. Sorry if I wasn’t very clear.
How can you get these if you are doing a Disney magic my way package and doing everything through the my Disney experience website and a travel agent? Do you have to buy them separately once you get to the park or is there going to be an option on the MDE customization page?
You need to buy them separately once you get to the park. They can link it to your account right there at the check-out counter.
Saw the Ariel and Castle magic bands for sale today at the Emporium.
Yep, it’s the release day for them! I am on my way to pick mine up now.
Can you buy these bands online at a certain web site or only at the park ?
Only in the parks currently. You can also try eBay.
