Exclusive: Autograph Fab 5 MagicBands coming soon

Last week I posted about about a rumor of new MagicBands coming this month, and now I’m excited to announce a few more details about what I know. Again, I am going to list these under the rumor category because I can’t speak directly for Disney, but I am confident in my source that these are indeed going to happen.

From what I understand, Disney is going to release five new graphic MagicBands to correspond with the popular Fab 5 characters (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto). These bands will include a signature, or autograph, printed on them and will have a corresponding color for each character. I assume that a picture will also be shown of the character on the band as well, but I have not been told that by anyone, so it’s just a guess. At this time I don’t know if these are Open Edition or Limited Release, but guessing by the popularity of the characters I would be surprised if they were anything but Open Edition.


Here are the release dates that I’ve been told:

  • Mickey (Red) – April 24th
  • Minnie (Pink) – April 24th
  • Goofy (Green) – May 1st
  • Donald (Blue) – May 1st
  • Pluto (Yellow) – May 1st
I am unsure where these will be sold at within Walt Disney World. If these are indeed happening, I expect an officially announcement by Disney about these new bands within a week or two. As more details are given to me, I will be sure to let you know.

  1. YAY! Cant wait to see these, and the GF will be so excited to get a Donald band for her birthday (if I can get someone to pick it up and ship to me) :-]

  2. I was wondering if anyone knew if a magic band would still work if the Mickey head was covered up. I decorated both my mom’s and mine and I put a rhinestone almost completely covering the Mickey on hers and mine is covered with a 3d scrapbook sticker that is essentially construction paper but I covered it in several layers of clear nail polish to protect it from wear and tear. I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t find any info about if this will mess with how it will work.

    • It should work if it’s not super thick. A few layers of polish and paper should be fine. A rhinestone might get in the way, as you need nearly direct contact at the entry and FP+ touchpoints. You can try it, and if it doesn’t work just pop the rhinestone off.

  3. I wish they would make a Daisy band… I feel like she’s always left out for some reason. I’m sure these will be awesome, though 🙂

  4. I saw the Mickey and Minnie ones on sale today on eBay…looks like they are released. The seller said he/she got it from Downtown Disney.

    • Thank you! I’ve been watching eBay the last few days waiting for them to show up, because I figured some would get released early. I’ll make a post about it now.
