Question…this is a limited release, what’s the difference between limited release and limited edition? Does it have its own special box? Is there anything else that’s known
Limited release (LR) differs from Limited Edition (LE) in a few ways. LR bands are released for a specific amount of time with no set quantity size, while LE bands are sold until the specific quantity size sells out regardless of amount of time. All LE bands come in a box and while most LR bands don’t, some LR bands do have boxes such as the Dooney and Bourke (D&B) LR bands (last Food and Wine, the Madame Leota Haunted Mansion, and Walk in the Park Bands). Also most LE bands make special sounds and lights at specific entry and touch points. LR bands do not except for the exception of the D&B Food and Wine Band. We have heard the possibility that the Madame Leota might but that has never been confirmed as of yet.
Regarding this specific band it is highly unlikely to come in a box or make sounds as all previous YesterEars bands have not.
Hope that helps!
Hi : )
We have enjoyed your site and all of the magic band info! Thank you!
Do you by chance know if a Christmas/holiday band will be released? We’re six weeks away from our vacation and are holding out, hoping for a Christmas band!
Thanks so much!
I’m sure Ethan appreciates your kind words! I know he has put a lot into this site for us all!
At this point there has been nothing confirmed for any MagicBand releases. However, I personally would be shocked if Disney did not release Holiday themed MagicBands again this year. I would expect at least one Open Edition band and at least one Limited Edition MVMCP Band. Due to MVMCP starting on 11/9, I would expect some holiday bands being released very soon. Worst case being an LE band being brought out for the first MVMCP date on 11/9. Again none of this is confirmed but is typical of how Disney releases their holiday bands.
Have you received yours yet? I ordered mine the day this went up, and it still hasn’t shipped 🙁
Nope no one has yet.
thank you 🙂 I was worried!
Thanks folks. I haven’t got mine either. Pretty disappointing! Was hoping to give it to a friends before his trip. He leaves tomorrow!
Man what’s the deal with these? Heard anything?
I and others saw charges finally to our credit cards this week. No one has received verification they have shipped yet, but it should be soon. I would check to see if you have a charge. If not I’d call right away because a few friends were told due to the demand they would not be getting theirs.
just got my tracking number. happy to have gotten one!
The band arrived today. At least while still in the package the band doesn’t glow.
I ordered three and they arrived today. One thing I noticed is they do not have any graphic on the other side of the band, which is a huge disappointment as I was hoping for it to say YesterEars like the others.
Still waiting on ours…. kind of disappointed as wont be getting for Christmas
