Disney Parks Blog today announced in an unboxing video that four new Limited Edition MagicBands will be coming this summer. These new bands are limited to 1500 each and come in a special new oversized gatefold box. Disney has teamed up with Dooney & Bourke (which make incredibly popular Disney-themed handbags) to create these new MagicBands. Each band also includes a special Dooney & Bourke MagicSlider as well in the box. The price for each MagicBand will be $48.00 before tax, and from what I understand these will be available on the Shop Disney Parks app.
The biggest news, which wasn’t even mentioned in the video, is that it appears three of the four new bands are on a new white colored band! I’ve known about white being a possible color for a while now, and I have a prototype of a white band, but I didn’t expect a new color of band to be released any time soon. It’s unknown if you’ll eventually be able to get a solid white band at some point in the future.
Here are some pictures from the video, and as I get more information I’ll be sure to pass it along.
From information on Disney Parks Blog, it appears the price will be $48
Omg so cool how do we get them were annual pass holders
As with any previous retail MagicBand released, I would imagine it would be the same in that you have to purchase the design you want. The only MagicBands that are complimentary to resort guests or annual passholders are the standard colors. The only exception to that so far has been a promotional Summer Awakens MagicBand (BB-8) which was to help promote a special resort travel package offer.
You should however inquire about your passholder discount when you purchase one of these Dooney & Bourke MagicBands.
For $48 this should last longer then 3 years (replaceable battery).
They do last longer than 3 years. The battery is only for long range tracking and on-ride effects and Photopass. Everything else, like park entry, payment, room key, etc. will all work forever as it uses magnetic induction for close-range use.
Why doesn’t Photopass work without the battery? Since the CM has to touch your band to the machine.
Long-range Photopass needs the battery, like when you are on a ride. Short-range will work fine.
Any chance these might follow the same lights and sounds theme the limited edition bands have had in the past?
That is a good question and I honestly don’t know. I guess we’ll find out in a few months here. 🙂
We’re planning to go back in Spring 2017. Can we buy them ahead of time?
From what I understand they will be available on the Shop Disney Parks mobile phone app a little later this summer. Keep an eye out in the app.
Where will you b able to buy the Dooney and Bourke Magic bands? Just the App Store? Any stores at Disney springs?
I am not sure yet, they haven’t announced where they will be on sale. I’m assuming they will be at the Dooney store in Disney Springs.
they showed up on ebay yesterday. someone may have gotten them already.
No, I think it’s just someone pre-selling them. The eBayers do that all the time to get the highest $ sales they can before launch.
Is there a limit on how many one can buy?
They haven’t announced that yet, but my guess is that it’s only one or two per person.
Being released July 6th.
Hi Kristen, how do you know this?
How do you know??
when wil the Disney Dooney And Bourke Magicband Magic Band be avb on shop disney parks they are already on e-bay??
Not sure yet. The eBay ones are just pre-orders. No one has the band yet.
Hi Ethan! This may be a silly question, but will these MagicBands be made of the same material as the rest? I thought it’d be cool if they were leather or something… Haha!
Yes, they will be exactly the same as far as I know. Sorry!
Have these been released yet?
Not yet…. supposedly later this month on July 23rd!
I’m interested in purchasing the dooney and bourke Magic bands. Are there any updates when they might be available? I will be there on August 27th. I do have another magic band coming that really won’t be needed if I get a dooney and bourke. Please advise.
They will be released this coming weekend. I am not sure if they will still be available by the time August 27th is here. They could be.
Do you know if they will have in park or just Disney springs and where there? Also do they make any special sounds at entrance?
Will you be able to purchase these online anywhere? Or only in parks?
I am not sure.
Do you know what time they’re supposed to be available on the app? I’m still not seeing them! Ugh!
No idea, sorry!
Not on Disney app yet!! Anyone have any luck
When are the released?
Already out in Disney Springs.
