Doctor Disney has posted an interesting news bit from his source today about new princess-themed MagicBands coming soon.
He got word, and obtained a picture (courtesy of his site) that shows what the new bands, and packaging, will look like. No word on when these will be available, but he’s been told that there will be an entire line of princess MagicBands put out, which makes sense since Anna, Else, and Olaf all have their own bands which aren’t limited edition.
If you look at the picture, you’ll notice that the custom themed design on the MagicBand itself is now easily visible from the front of the packaging, versus the current design that highlights the Mickey touchpoint on the band. Maybe this is so Disney has an easier job marketing these new themed bands? The box also looks more compact and less bulky.
Update (9/17/2014): I have checked with a source of mine and he’s told me that these bands are just concepts Disney is throwing around right now and you won’t see them until 2015 at the earliest.
If anything, this shows that the custom themed MagicBands Disney has been putting out lately are selling well as they continue to expand their lineup. Being a MagicBand fan and collector myself, this is great news!
I sincerely hope they make a sleeping beauty Magic band because that is my sister’s favorite princess
My guess is that you will see some more princess bands in 2015. I will definitely post about them on here if they come out!
It’s 2015…. Is there any update on the princess bands?
None yet. I will post as soon as I have information… last I heard they would be out sometime in January or February.
Just put a new post on the main page… Ariel, Belle, and Tinker Bell are coming this month!
Ethan, I went to your site to see if there were any Princess options, did not find any. Saw they were coming out in January, any updates?
Yep there are a ton out now… Ariel, 4 Princesses Together, Belle. They are all over Walt Disney World for sale. Look in the Open Edition MagicBand section of my site for more details.
Is there any news of a release date for aurora sleeping beauty magic band? My daughter loves her!
Nope no news yet, sorry!
Is there an Aurora Magic Band yet??
