As predicted in a previous post, older MagicBands such as Stitch, Minnie Mouse, and Sorcerer Mickey have begun to appear for sale within the Walt Disney World Resort with the new style packaging (what I like to call Version 2 style). Here’s a look at a few real shots of these items in the new packaging. As you can see, Stitch is now clearly visible and easily distinguishable from the solid red MagicBand, which was a big problem with the older box packages.
Update: As of April 2015, the Princesses and Haunted Mansion MagicBands are now also in new packaging. The remaining bands that still need new packaging are all of the solid color bands and the original Frozen Open Edition bands (Anna, Elsa, Olaf). The Big Hero 6 MagicBand was a Limited Release and is sold out and most likely won’t ever been released in the new packaging style.
