A new Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party limited edition MagicBand is going to be released at the hard-ticketed event in Walt Disney World on November 7th, 2014. This is similar to how there was a special band at the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.
This new band is Limited Edition 5000 and will come in a nice box. It will make new lights and sounds at FP+ touchpoints only in the Magic Kingdom. Expect the price to be around $29.95.
How do we get this. We did by tickets for the Christmas Party but how do we get the band???
You will need to purchase the MagicBand one the day of your Christmas Party. That is when it’s sold and you have to buy it in person. Hopefully they won’t be sold out by the time you have your party date.
I assume that you will be purchasing one of these bands very early in in the party season.
Apparently the rest of my comment disappeared. Can you post a video of the special effects? Also, will this band eork all the ring at MK, or only during certain times of the year (ie christmas)?
I will post a video on Nov. 10th. I am not sure if the effects last all year or not. The Star Wars bands still work, so I am assuming yes.
Yes, I will have mine on Nov. 10th
Thanks! Love the site btw! You’ve turned us from “we’ll just get the standard colors” to “we gotta have special ones” magic band owners! We got a Halloween one yesterday and an Olaf summer band today. My kids think they’re awesome!
Will this band be sold in Downtown Disney? Also, if I was to purchase this band, could I link it to annual pass tickets? Or is this band strictly for the Very Merry Christmas Party only?
1. No, you can only purchase this during the Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom. You must have purchased a ticket for this event to buy it.
2. Yes, you can link the band to your normal Annual Pass when you buy it.
3. No, once you buy the band, it works anywhere on Disney property as long as it’s linked to valid ticket media.
Okay. Thank you so much. Another question. I read that a Christmas Mickey and Minnie magic band will be sold in Downtown Disney. Do you know of any other limited edition or “non-regular” magic bands will be sold in Downtown Disney ?
The only ones I have seen in Downtown Disney currently are the open-edition Elsa, Anna, and Olaf bands (see the Frozen section of this website to see what they look like). I have heard that the Christmas Mickey/Minnie one will be Downtown, but I haven’t seen it with my own eyes yet. Other than that, there won’t be any others there for the time being.
Alright, thanks again. Keep up the great updates!
Does anyone know if these are still available? I know the Halloween ones were out for a bit AFTER Halloween!
Do you know if the lights and sounds still work?
Yes I am pretty sure they do.
Do you think the Christmas bands will be sold out on the Nov. 13th?
Nope, they won’t be (if they make them for 2015).
