The Disney Parks Blog gave us a preview today of the upcoming Epcot 35th Anniversary merchandise, and a Limited Edition 3500 MagicBand is one of the items on the way. Coming October 1st, 2017, this MagicBand comes in a box and is very retro. It will cost $32.99 and may make special sounds at Epcot touch points. I’m unsure if this band will be available on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app or not, but it could be, so keep an eye out for it. Here’s a preview of what it looks like:

So glad I will be at EC on October 1!! 🙂
Same! I leave in 3 weeks!
I’m going September 27-October 5!
So I should be in Epcot that day but my plans are Zion Animal kingdom.
I am at Disney right now! Let me know if you find it!
How do these work… if youre heading to a resort and have a standard Magic Band on arrival??
I love the look of this!!
You can have more than one band lol need to your account. I have about 10 now.
Haha sorry the dog hit my arm. It should have said “linked”
You can instantly link any new band to your account by typing its ID code into your My Disney Experience app. You can have as many as 15 active bands linked to your admission media, so there is no need to deactivate your regular band, although that option is available to you.
What would be an Epcot sound, though? A clip from one of the many abandoned but much loved songs from the ’80s? Tomorrow’s Child? Disney has been pretty good at rubbing salt into wounds while making a buck. I’m waiting for an Adventurers Club band with the Colonel. Kungaloosh! ??
I think the trumpet fanfare from the Epcot Center theme more than likely. I really hope these are on the shop disney app!
I don’t know that I recall an Epcot Center Theme/Fanfare. I’ve got the official LP from ’82 and the CD from ’88. I suppose they could use a short snippet from the Main Entrance Medley (no trumpets). Not that I need another half dozen bands, but I’m surprised they’re not doing this MK 45th style with a band for each of the original attractions. Tomorrow’s Child, Listen to the Land, It’s Fun to Be Free, Energy (You Make the World Go Round), Golden Dream, One Little Spark (although that one didn’t come along until March of ’83), etc. Heck, we know Disney… they’re coming! LOL!
I meant Main Entrance Medley trumpets lol
I’ll be first in line for the Veggie Veggie Fruit Fruit band! ?
any idea which shop this magic band will be in at Epcot?
Probably a number of them… try the Camera Center at the front of the park and Mouse Gears near the fountain.
The wait for this magicband is too long! Haha
Currently on sale at Epcot World Traveler
Correct, thank you!
Is there any way to get this in Chicago? The app doesn’t have it.
Does anyone know an answer? Thanks
There is also a ree 35th anniversary band le 5000 that I just picked up !!!
I meant red
Do the bands unique effects work in other parks or just in Epcot?
Available now through the Shop Disney Parks app, their website at https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/store/ and shopdisney.com.
Mouse gears got a new supply of orange today. They have 100 or so. They also have a bunch of red. We got one of each. ?
