    Can I buy a magicband now and use it next June 2020? I noticed the design I like has a gray circle area so is it possible to pop it out & repll it w/ the piece from the band they mail me w/ the package? Hope this makes sense. Thanks.

    Hey howdy hey, Judy and welcome back to this Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Yes, yes and yes! You can buy your MagicBand now and use it in 2020 as long as you link it to your My Disney Experience account. All MagicBands & Admission Cards linked to your account will work as theme park tickets and for FastPass+ attractions.

    When Mickey decided a couple years ago to change the MagicBand design he knew Guests would get creative with the new style. MagicBand 2 has a removable pod called an icon. These icons can be swapped out between MagicBand straps. All the interaction is done through the icon and not the actual band. In fact, you can purchase icon holders called MagicKeepers to clip on your theme park bag or handbag. The icon batteries are rumored to last 2 years so you should be safe for your June 2020 adventure. There is always the possibility of Mickey changing the design again but I would not let that prevent me from getting your enchanted wrist accessory. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for even more amazing MagicBand designs and colors.

    Disney Dad Tip: Recently on a trip to the "Most Magical Place on Earth," we swapped blue and red icons creating Captain America-style MagicBands. There are so many options to match your MagicBand to your Disney outfits. How creative can you be with Disney Bounding your MagicBands?

    Judy, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
