The Magic Kingdom’s 45th Anniversary is coming soon, and to celebrate it Disney is releasing a ton of themed merchandise. According to the Disney Parks Blog, one of the new items is a Limited Edition 4500 themed MagicBand. The item will be released “on October 1 at the Emporium” in the Magic Kingdom. No word yet if it will be sold elsewhere, such as on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app.
Because these bands are Limited Edition and exclusive to the Magic Kingdom, they should make special lights and sounds at both entry and FastPass+ touch points within the Magic Kingdom. I hope to have more details on these special effects around Oct. 1st, 2016.
How neat. I will be there on this date. I will have to check it out.
How much is it
Do they only come in blue
Yes only blue.
Are you expecting these to be available on the shopping app or sell out?
I’m not sure yet if they are coming to the app yet. I’ll post when I know more info.
They’re only being sold at Magic Kingdom
do you know when the very merry Christmas party will be released? and where can I buy it. Going on the third night of the party.
Thanks for any info.
I don’t know if they will have a Christmas Party band this year but my guess is that they will. It will only be available at the party.
Will you be able to get them online?
As of today, no. Not sure if that will change or not.
Cast members were telling me as I was standing in line for the merch that the magicband would be online starting tomorrow
I see it online now, just listed as sold out. I bet it will be in stock tomorrow. Thanks for the tip!
Where is it listed on the app? I don’t see it, even as sold out. Thanks!
Where do you see it online?
It’s no longer online. It did say “Sold Out” and now it’s gone.
Any idea if there’s a special sound when you use it?
There is, but no video has been taken of it yet. I am out of town on vacation so I hope one of my readers can send me a video soon.
Just purchased it today at the Emporium. They had several behind the cash registers.
Thanks for the update Susan!
Do they do anything when you use them?
Yes but I don’t know what it does yet.
that makes me angry actually. I stood in line for a long time Saturday for these bands. I cast member handed me the wrong box.. a mickey statue instead of the bands which I didnt realize till we left magic kingdom and opened the boxes. We went back into magic kingdom to exchange them and were told they were SOLD OUT. they gave me the wrong item. NOT MY FAULT and tell me theyre sold out and they arent??!!
They are in stock at the emporium as of right now
same here, I was in the line and that everything is sold out except for a couple of sizes of the t-shirts but it’s frustrating that this is not the case.
Crossing my fingers to show up in the app tomorrow. ?
Do you know how long they will be on sale for? Or is it only of that day?
They will be for sale all year long until they sell out. My guess is that they will be gone quickly (as-in before 2017).
I went today to MK and there were easily more than 50 behind the registers in the emporium.
Just ordered mine from Disney Store App! Can’t wait to use it!!
glad i just checked. I ordered mine too!!! Plus FREE SHIPPING WOO HOOO!
I know 🙂 I love free shipping 🙂
Someone bought them for me while there this week. When I go in a few weeks do you know if the D-Tech people can put our names on them somewhere?
No, you can’t bring in your own bands for customization. Sorry!
I don’t see it on the app and I have been looking since Saturday. Oh well I must have missed it.
It’s currently available on the Disney Store website:
I saw a couple yesterday at Big Top Souvenirs as well.
I used it Oct. 22-24 at Epcot, MK, and Hollywood Studios and there were no special sounds or lights at the front gates or at Fastpass locations.
