Rumors: More Open Edition MagicBands on the way, including Jiminy Cricket?

I’ve gotten some tips from a few people that more Open Edition MagicBands are on the way. Open Edition bands, which cost $22.99 at retail, are basic graphic bands that don’t make any special lights/sounds at entry and FastPass+ points. They are generally not rare and are usually available for an extended period of time.

I was told from one source specifically that Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio may end up being a character used for a MagicBand. Without any other confirmation all I can say is that this is a rumor, and that I do not know of a release date or what the band will look like. Here’s what we might expect to see as a graphic on a band featuring him:


As I find out more information, I’ll be sure to post about it here!

  1. It’s going to be an interesting year. I’m looking forward to what designs and characters are choosing this year.

    After the Easter LE band I thought for sure we would get a St. Patrick’s Day LE band…maybe next year

    • Yeah I was wondering about St. Patrick’s Day. Could also see Mother’s Day and Father’s Day too? I’m also hoping for more On Demand designs and stations in Epcot and Animal Kingdom.

      • You might be correct.

        I checked out the MagicBand stations while I was there last weekend. They have good options. I didn’t expect to see some old designs like Jack Skellington from this past Halloween.
