The Donald Duck Signature and Cinderella MagicBands have finally been released. Both are Open Edition for $19.95 each and don’t make lights and sounds at touch points. I found Donald in The Dark Room in Hollywood Studios and Cinderella in the Camera Center store in Epcot.
Apparently both of these aren’t supposed to be officially released until May 22, 2015, but they are out early at some stores. Buyer beware, as there have been reports of checkout problems at the register because the SKU is not yet in the system. There has also been reports of linking problems, where even a Link-It Later band will say “invalid number” when you try to link it to your My Disney Experience account.
Update: I just got word that Epcot’s Camera Center has pulled the Cinderella bands until the release date of May 22nd in order to avoid continued issues at the registers.
Here’s some pictures for you:
Two surprises today. Good pickups, you’re on it!
Guess I’ll have to wait now until Fri…gonna give MK a try. Don’t think I’ll make it anywhere near 24 hrs…Ethan you going to MK on Fri. at all?
We will be at the afternoon parade but that is it. We’re just going because my kids want to see the Disney Channel stars in the parade.
Gonna try and see that, but not sure if we can get there by then.
The Cinderella band is gorgeous.
I love how the manager here at the camera center denies that these were ever out and sold even though I showed him this picture…:
LOL… I bought two there in person myself. Oh well, they will be out on May 22nd. 🙂
