We recently reported that free MagicBands are no longer being mailed to Disney World Annual Passholders. This comes after Walt Disney World Resort discontinued complimentary MagicBands for Disney Resort hotel Guests at the start of 2021.
The good news is that despite the end of complimentary MagicBands, Disney is continuing to design and release brand-new MagicBands that Guests can purchase — including exclusive MagicBands that are only available to select ticket holders!
In case you aren’t familiar, MagicBands are described by Walt Disney World as:
This colorful wristband is actually an all-in-one device that effortlessly connects you to all the vacation choices you made with My Disney Experience. Your MagicBand enables you to travel lighter throughout your vacation. Use it to enter the parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room and buy food and merchandise.
As mentioned above, Walt Disney World is continuing to release newly designed MagicBands for Guests to use throughout their Disney vacation. And if you are an Annual Passholder, you will soon be able to purchase new, exclusive MagicBands that will debut this fall!
Two new designs will be coming soon for Annual Passholders exclusively. One will feature Chip and Dale with fall colors and objects such as acorns, as seen in the screenshot above. The other MagicBand will feature everyone’s favorite alien experiment, Stitch! Per Disney:
Annual Passholders, add a fashionable “touch” to your park visits with a MagicBand style all your own. New designs—available only to Passholders—will be released throughout the year, so you can accessorize for every season. Look for our two latest designs— featuring Chip & Dale and Stitch—wherever MagicBands are sold.
At this time, we do not know exactly what the Stitch MagicBand will look like, or when either MagicBand will be released, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information. Remember, these two MagicBands will only be available to Walt Disney World Annual Passholders.
If you are not an Annual Passholder, but you are looking to add another MagicBand to your collection, shopDisney is selling several designs on their website.
If you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort in the near future, you can use a Key To The World card (provided at the Front Desk) for Disney Resort hotel room entry, theme park entry, and charging purchases to your hotel room with a valid credit card. Additionally, Guests can opt to use a MagicBand from a past visit or may purchase a MagicBand before they arrive at Walt Disney World.
