Thanks to Twitter users we are now seeing the first pictures come in of the MagicBand 2 in Annual Passholder’s hands. As I first posted about a while back, all AP orders from now on will be in MagicBand 2 form. The bands are solid colors and come in a new eco-friendly AP box. They still come with Annual Passholder themed MagicSliders as before

Are those the new annual pass sliders? Do they really just say pass holder again this year?
Yep, they are exactly the same as last year.
What color are the sliders? Do you get to choose?
Yes! so ready to order mine, I been holding until you post this! LOL
Mine should be arriving today 🙂
Did you get new ones?
Yes, I received the new magicband 2.
Just in case people were wondering, I am not an AP and we did not receive the new MagicBands for our January trip.
You have to request them. They will ship out within a few days!
Will current annual pass holders receive the new band? I still have my original but I was just curious as I’ll be going this Friday.
No, not until you renew, sorry.
I renew my AP,
and I am about to summit my new magic band, But the picture the system show is the old magic band,
How can I get the new magic band design
Don’t worry you will get the new band. The old images on the website just haven’t been fixed yet.
I am a new AP holder and never got magic bands
You need to order them for free on the My Disney Experience website after you’ve used your Annual Pass at least once.
I have a question, and I hope someone here can answer it. I know Disney doesn’t ship MagicBands internationally, and that if you become a AP holder you need to buy your own. At least that’s what I’ve been reading. I was wondering if International AP holders can still get a Passholder slider, because I really want one when I become a AP holder next October.
I am not sure. You may want to ask Guest Relations in Disney Springs (at the Welcome Center) if they have them. Otherwise I don’t know of any way besides looking on eBay. Sorry!
Hi! I renewed my AP 1/1/17 and I still don’t see the ability to order my new magic band… I’m assuming I’ve got to contact them directly, but has anyone else had this happen?
Yeah your best bet is to contact Disney about this.
I like to have a new box of magicbands
I received our AP magic bands but no sliders were included. There was a note that there were out of stock? Will these be sent to us or can we pick up at our resort or need to visit Guest Relations?
I have no idea. Guests have been receiving that note for a few months now. Apparently they will ship you them when the new ones are made.
We received the same note in our box. It said they would ship them in the Spring when the sliders are back in stock. Since then, I have chatted once and emailed once and both times the CMs still didn’t have a date when they would be back in stock. I know it’s silly, but this is our first time getting annual passes and I was looking forward to that slider.
It’s totally understandable! It’s exciting to be an AP holder for the first time and it’s fun to show it off and feel special.
