    We just became Annual Passholders and I was about to customize my Magicbands, when I noticed that the picture still shows the old version and I would like the new version. Will I receive the Magicband 2 as a new Annual Passholder?

    Hi, Ashleigh! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so happy you brought us your question!
    As a fellow Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder, I must tell you, you are going to love having AP’s! My family and I love being able to enjoy everything the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer, and because we come often, we can do it at a slower pace and take in all the magnificent details and enjoy special activities we hadn’t before. There is something new and wonderful to explore every time we visit! Also, as annual passholders you get added benefits. Right now, to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort, you can enjoy 20% off on select Disney merchandise and select restaurants all throughout the resort. It's an awesome perk! 

    Like you, I’m super excited to get the new MagicBand 2! There is not an official date for when they are shipping out the new model exclusively. From what I have seen from fan pages online, some guests are still receiving the old model while some are in fact receiving the new one. So, all I can say is pixie dust your way for the new MB2 to arrive for your newly minted Annual Passholder status! You can read more about this new technology in this Disney Parks Blog post

    Come back and see us again soon! I’d love to know if you, in fact, got the new one and how you like it!
