New MagicBands at Star Wars Launch Bay today at a new On Demand station

Today, December 1st, 2015, was the opening of the new Star Wars Launch Bay attraction within Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park at Walt Disney World. The Star Wars Launch Bay is a temporary store, character meet-and-greet, and walk-through attraction that will be at Hollywood Studios until the new Star Wars Land is built in the coming years.

In a surprise, a new MagicBand On Demand station was opened inside of the Star Wars Launch Bay featuring all Star Wars based new designs. There are only two designs that we have seen before (Luke and Stormtrooper), and all of the others are new! Again, like the On Demand Pixar MagicBands, I’m seeing copyright text and symbols on most of the MagicBand graphics, which is disappointing as it distracts from the beautiful images. I hope Disney can stop doing this at some point in the future.

Here’s a quick look at what we know is available so far (special thanks to WDW News Today for providing the pictures):

    • Notice how none of the new bands feature Disney characters in costume?

      As far as I understand it, Disney characters in Star Wars outfits will no longer happen anywhere within Disney. They are permanently changing the brand now that Star Wars Lands are being included in the parks. No more Jedi Mickey, Jedi Donald, Stitch Yoda, Chewbacca Goofy, etc etc. They don’t fit with the storyline. Sorry!

  1. A few of these looked pretty cool, but actually I am not too impressed with this batch of styles. Maybe they will grow on me?
    Don’t get me wrong, I still plan to get them all, but I am not overly zealous this time…and I am a Star Wars fan.
    Am I alone in this?
    V.H.

  2. The Stormtrooper and Luke designs were released as open editions but notice that the MBOD versions of these have the Star Wars logo on zone 1 (side with the holes) so they are a little different

    • Hey, good eye for detail!

      So Basically the open edition bands have either the Rebel or Empire logos on the band side with the holes in it, but the new bands have replaced the symbols with actual words that say ‘star wars’.
      Cool.
      Now all the new on demand bands will match.
      Maybe they will cycle through the other 2 parks opening on demand stations and then come back to Disney World with the rest of the 7 dwarves bands.
      Thanks for the heads up.
      V.H.

  3. Just went there last Friday to make a band.
    We ended up picking the Darth Vadar on a red band, I personally am thrilled to have finally gotten my hands on one.. (Yes I know these are limited, but I’m equally as excited)
    I’m very curious about the durability of these bands compared to my other ones.

    • I am not sure. The 2015 one was never on the Disney Store online. I suggest you use the Shop Disney Parks app. They will ship to your house and have free shipping until Jan 1st I think.
