Disney World is continuing to release new, exclusive MagicBand designs for select Guests. Most recently, Guests have three new designs to choose from if they have an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

In years past, when Guests booked a trip to Walt Disney World Resort, if they were staying on property, Disney would send them a complimentary MagicBand to use throughout their vacation. However, at the start of 2021, Walt Disney World Resort officially discontinued complimentary MagicBands for Disney Resort hotel Guests.

This change, on top of the announcement of Disney MagicMobile, made many think that MagicBands would soon be discontinued. However, 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 these three new, exclusive MagicBands — all of which are discounted if you pre-order them!

Here are all the details surrounding these new MagicBands available now through your My Disney Experience account on the Walt Disney World website for those who have an upcoming trip.

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.

Though Disney World discontinued free MagicBands, they are still offering a wide variety of designs and colors. New MagicBands can be purchased on shopDisney.com here.
