    Exclamation More Magic Band Options Coming Soon

    The Walt Disney World resort has announced a discounted MagicBand upgrade option for Passholder and Walt Disney World resort hotel Guests:

    Quote Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

    Soon, Disney Resort hotel guests and new and renewing Annual Passholders will have the option to upgrade, at a discounted price, from a complimentary solid-color MagicBand to one of more than 30 new MagicBand upgrade options featuring favorite Disney characters and designs. These new MagicBand upgrade options will be available for pre-arrival purchase at a special price that reflects a $14.99 discount off the regular retail cost through the My Disney Experience website.

    A colorful selection of complimentary MagicBands is still available for guests who choose not to upgrade. The new upgrade options can also be shipped to guests’ homes (U.S. addresses only) if ordered 11 or more days ahead of arrival and can be personalized if done so at least 6 or more days ahead of arrival.

    Like I needed yet another reason to expand my ever growing magic band collection I do think it's a cute idea though and I like the discounted pricing.

    Yea - don't have enough of those magic bands! And some of these will be tempting to add to the collection! Discounted pricing? Or another $10 we wouldn't have spent otherwise!?!

    I think I agree with the general thoughts. These are cute, and I'm glad there is a discount … one of the reasons I've avoided buying the cool MB's in the past is because I didn't want to pay full price for something I could get for "free", but at the reduced price … Disney just might get my $$.

    Do we know when these will be available? I don't see the options for my August trip yet.

    I'm not a fan of the bands in general, which is why I have a fob for my disk. Are the disks for the specialized bands also graphic, or just plain?

    I believe that all the 'pucks' are solid color -- plain. Color coordinated with the band pattern, but no graphics.

    They are just a solid color, but many of them are non-standard colors.

    Both, I like the discount, been saying that should happen for years. No one is forcing you to buy one, although they are tempting.

    Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you!

    A Castmember just told me this option would be ready soon, but didn't have an exact date. I guess we will all just have to keep checking back.

    As of about 6am (Eastern) this morning - 5/20 - the new Premium band option is available. It's unstable, i.e. glitchy, -at the moment, but it's there. There is an interesting selection of Premium bands available. FYI , the second wave of the solid colors (black, white, teal, millenial pink, etc.) are NOT included.

    Wow! These are selling fast!

    I looked today at work, and saw a few that I liked, but they aren't there anymore this evening. I'm sure they will come back in stock, but crazy!

    I know, right? I looked the day they were available, texted my daughter, then was going to order 2 the next day. The designs were pretty much not available.
