Disney Parks Blog has announced today that a new Limited Edition MagicBand is coming for the upcoming movie The Lion King. I’m not yet sure what the edition size of this band will be, but best guess is somewhere between 2000 to 3500. The band is due to come out on July 19th, 2019 throughout Walt Disney World and may be available for purchase online as well. The price is $34.99 and I don’t yet have a barcode SKU for this.
This MagicBand is not available from Disney (yet), but you can buy it from eBay online by clicking this link which will take you right to the product listings (if any are available).
This looks like the best live action remake film magic band they’ve put out so far. Definitely going to grab this one.
Do we know if this band has any special effects yet? I own it and scanned it once at AK at the Rainforest Cafe entrance and got nothing and at the entrance to MK and got nothing. Either way I still love the band!
It must work at Hollywood then is it didn’t work at animal or magic then it’s a Hollywood limited edition magic band cause it should have made a sound and changed the color of the light
Movie LE MagicBands ONLY work at park entrances usually. Because MOST are sold resort wide, although there are exceptions. Now because most only work at park entrances, they tend to turn the affects off at park entrances A LOT. Usually only turned on during lower traffic days, & late evening times when crowds are low.
