Halloween and Christmas Party MagicBands on discounted sale at Disney outlet stores

Update:

Jeff, one of our readers, has told me that one of the outlet stores also had the blue MagicBand with Mickey and Minnie in their Christmas outfits for $11.99/each.

Original story:

Thanks to  on Twitter, I found out today that MagicBands from both the 2014 Mickey’s No So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) and 2014 Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP) are both on discounted sale at official Disney Parks outlet stores in central Florida. There are two outlet stores at these locations:

Character Warehouse (located on International Drive close to Universal Studios)
4951 International Dr
Orlando, FL 32819

Character Warehouse (Vineland Avenue, right across I-4 near the exits to Disney World)
8200 Vineland Ave
Orlando, FL 32821

Regular price for these at the party itself were $29.95/each, and that didn’t include the price of the ticket just to get into the party, which ran $60 and up. Now they are on sale for anyone at a price of just $14.99. These come new, in the box, and set to Link-It Later, which actually has been pretty hard to find for the Halloween Party band because at the original time of sale they had to be linked at the checkout counter. These are limited to 5000 produced per band.

Many people would call this a failure for MagicBands and their ability to sell, but I look at it as an overproduction mistake by Disney. These were the first parties that they ever made custom MagicBands for, and they overestimated sales. In my opinion, for the parties in 2015, Disney should make these MagicBands limited to 2500 or less. They would be more valuable and collectable, and they’d most likely sell out at the parties just like the Star Wars bands currently do. My guess is that Disney has learned a lot from 2014 sales and will continue to make adjustments.

  1. I saw both of these at the Vineland Outlet as well this past Sunday. They also had the blue magic band with Mickey and Minnie in their Christmas outfits for $11.99.

  2. All I want to know is how can I get one? I wanted one of the Haloween ones but don’t live nearby and refuse to pay the ridiculous prices they want for them on Ebay. Anyway I can oder one online with the Link It Later option and have it shipped to me?

      • Is link later not available for the hollween band? I bought one at the party but I don’t remember if they linked it then.

        • It was not available at the time of the party, no. You had to link it on the spot because there was no such thing as “Link-It Later”. But extras were sold after the party both in Magic Kingdom and at Disney outlet stores and those are indeed set to “Link-It Later”.

  3. Crazy the Christmas one I could only find in one store in magic kingdom and they only had a few left I think the Christmas ones where not in many stores and that where they didn’t sell because I spend the holiday in Disney at multiple park looking

  4. Vineland outlet sold out of Halloween bands. But have Xmas and Xmas Olaf. Xmas Mickey and Minnie many 50ish. Xmas Olaf 7 left

  5. Any news yet if there will be 2015 halloween bands? I come over from the UK in September and have got tickets for the first night of the party. Or is there plans for any other limited releases to come out before september?
