On Friday, April 14th, 2017, Disney held it’s first (of potentially many) new Star Wars: Galactic Nights event. As was advertised, special merchandise was unveiled to commemorate, and included in that was a new Limited Release MagicBand for $27.99. The band has graphics to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars franchise, and even more excitingly comes on an all new base band color of black, which has never been seen before. Although this band isn’t a Limited Edition in a special box, and most likely won’t make special lights and sounds at touch points, it’s still likely to be extremely limited and may have even sold out at the event.
As you may recall, some of the Limited Edition Dooney & Bourke MagicBands from last year were on a white base color, but that a white solid band color was never released otherwise. Now we have a special MagicBand on a black base color. Will white and black eventually come out as a solid color? Or will they always be reserved for special events and releases? Time will tell I guess.
The barcode SKU of this item is 400020187659.
Do boxed bands usually mean they will have sounds and lights? Not gonna lie, if it played a star wars tune, I might fall in love.
That’s only for Limited Editions, not Limited Releases, sorry!
Thanks for the post. I’m glad you have this page. I like the design. I’m anxiously waiting for Sku #.
Thank you Ethan
Will they sell the magic bands in the Disney Store, Disney Store online, or Star Wars Galactic Outpost. What are my best chance in getting the magic band??
I don’t think this one will be sold outside of the Parks for now. Try eBay. They are only about $10 above cost on eBay right now.
Which store can you find this in?
It was at Mickey’s of Hollywood in Disney’s Hollywood Studios only at the Galactic Nights event.
I am at DHS now . The dark room has them for sale. Picked up 2 . It’s 4/16/17 .
Any clue how many are being sold?
I have heard 1500 total, but they could increase that.
Do you think they will still be available at the end of May, or should I just bite the bullet and buy one from ebay?
I really have no clue to be honest. If they are cheap on eBay, just get one that way and save yourself the hassle and worry.
If you want a black MB, the new open edition Grumpy uses the black one instead of the Gray it used to be in the previous generation.
They still have it at Mickey’s of Hollywood. Bought it during the day yesterday.
Still several available in Mickey’s of Hollywood as of today.
I actually was able to order one on the Parks app even though it’s listed as in store only. Time will tell if they’ll allow the order to go through or not.
It shipped and they updated the app. It’s now available for purchase on the Shop Disney Parks app!
Nice! Thanks for the update Mark.
Do you know if these could still be purchased? My husband and friend are huge fans and we are travelling in November. We love to get these now.
Get them online at the Disney Store or Shop Disney Parks app now before they completely sell out is my suggestion.
Disney Park app now says “in store only” meaning only available in parks. Might try and run over in the morning and see if they have any. Not sure how I kissed that this band was released. I just have been busy at work and not paying attention.
Good idea, get it while you can.
They said they’ve been sold out for almost two weeks but I will look again when I am there Sunday.
I checked Hollywood Studios and did not see any avail
