Complaints about The Walt Disney Company’s merchandise department have skyrocketed over the past year, starting when Disney closed most of its Disney Stores and replaced them with online shopDisney offerings and mini-Disney Stores in 100+ United States Target locations.

Last year, shopDisney was forced to remove a Spirit Jersey after receiving an entirely wrong shipment causing complaints from irate Guests. And the 2021 Stitch Crashes Disney limited edition collection, meant for release once a month, took until May 2022 to complete.

Now, a Walt Disney World Resort Guest is frustrated with the merchandise offerings at the Disney Parks. Twitter user @TheMouseAndMore found a Dooney & Bourke Disneyland Park Main Street Electrical Parade Limited Edition MagicBand+ for sale at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and was confused why a Disneyland Resort product would be sold at Walt Disney World:

Nothing like a Disneyland item for sale in AK…that you can’t even use in Disneyland (well yet)

MagicBand service isn’t yet available at Disneyland Resort, so the item is currently useless at the Disney Parks it is intended for. MagicBand+ wristbands are expected to debut at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure later this year.

Walt Disney World is upgrading to the MagicBand+ later this year. Though it will still work, this $58 Dooney & Bourke Magicband2 will soon be out-of-date at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

MagicBand bracelets won’t work at Disneyland just yet, but will debut later this year. Disneyland-themed MagicBands have been sold at Walt Disney World for years, as they only work in Florida!

There’s no date for when MagicBand+ will release at Walt Disney World or when MagicBand+ will debut at Disneyland. Inside the Magic will report on any MagicBand updates!
