    When will the 2020 custom band designs be released?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    Don’t tell my watch, but MagicBands are my very favorite wearable technology. An adorable bracelet (with a Mickey head icon!) that unlocks my Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, gets me in to the FastPass+ queue for the attractions I’ve selected, and is my key to the kingdom at each theme park? It just doesn’t get any better than that! Custom MagicBands allow us to showcase our favorite colors, characters, attractions, and show off our #DisneyStyle, and I just can’t stop collecting them.

    Lisa, I’m a sucker for Disney merchandise that’s branded with the year of my visit, so I totally relate to your question. 2018 was the year I joined the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and I have quite the collection of Disney Parks 2018 merchandise to commemorate my magical year – it makes my heart happy! Having a MagicBand, t-shirt, ornament, autograph book, or magnet (to infinity and beyond – there are so many options!) allows us to celebrate milestone birthdays, first visits, special family together time, or any other moments that are magic to us. I love that.

    I did some resEARch, and I don’t see any 2020 merchandise yet. My guess is that the 2020 MagicBands may arrive more toward the late fall, and my best advice is to keep an eye on both the ShopDisney Magic Band collection and the Disney Parks Blog. Since you have a 2020 vacation booked, you can also keep an eye on the MagicBand options in your My Disney Experience account. I can’t promise the 2020 MagicBands will be one of the upgrade options, but I’m sending pixie dust your way that the 2020 MagicBand design is gorgeous and that you’re able to get your wrists on one with lots of time to spare before your vacation. If you’re planning a birthday or holiday surprise (I LOVE THOSE!), I recommend emailing to ask if they have any information on the release date.

    Lisa, I’m so excited for your 2020 visit to Walt Disney World Resort! It’s never too soon to start your planning, dreaming, and counting down, and I sure hope you’ll come back and see us with your questions. Tomorrow is just a dream away, and you’ll be walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A. before you know it!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
