MagicBand 2 Coming to Walt Disney World Resort

inline imageThe Disney Blog has posted about a new MagicBand is coming to the Walt Disney World Resort as part of Disney's continuing push to innovate and personalise guest's vacation experience.

MagicBand 2 was just unveiled by Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek during a D23's Destination D: Amazing Adventures presentation.

MagicBand 2 will feature a new design for the band itself. While the design helps make MagicBand 2 more versatile and customizable it'll still work like the current MagicBand. You will be able to link My Disney Experience to your MagicBand 2, which can serve as a theme park ticket, access to FastPass+ selections, Disney PhotoPass card as well as a room key for Disney Resort guests.

MagicBand 2 will make its resort-wide debut soon.

How exciting. Was wondering when they would enhance the bands. Can not wait for the new design.

It's worth pointing out that the round middle bit pops out:



And then this "MagicPuck" can be fitted into other accesories, like a lanyard or keychain:



So, a lot more options for Disney to sell you stuff.

Anyway, the new MagicBands look great.

Am I missing something here ? Apart from looking different does it have any new capabilities or is this something for the future ?

Question New magic bands

Hi there,
Does anybody know how 'soon' the new wristbands will be rolled out? I shall be arriving on 30th November so may not be soon enough for us I guess.

They look fab - my only reservation is that teens who like to fidget and mess with things are going to pop the middle out and lose it!

Might not tell them that it comes out!

Hmm not sure about that on my tiny wrist as it looks bigger, like a watch even.

It looks quite chunky so I'm not keen on the new design.

Looks great, you will have to choose the colour more carefully as it will need to match the accessory band you choose unless each accessory band is made in all the colours.

Green for me I think, looks cool with most other colours!
