    is there a date yet for the Magicband+. We are visiting in march.

    Welcome to planDisney, Colleen!

    On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you for your upcoming trip? Let me guess: 11! You've chosen quite an enchanting year to experience The Most Magical Place on Earth. There are new attractions, spectacular shows, tasty treats, delicious drinks, memorable merchandise, and dazzling decorations for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Get ready for some EARidescent excitement, Colleen!

    If you're anything like me, then you're eagerly anticipating the new MagicBand+. These handy wristbands have the same basic capabilities as the current MagicBand, such as the ability to unlock your Disney Resort room door, enter Theme Parks and Water Parks (with valid admission), connect your Disney PhotoPass to your account, and purchase food and merchandise. However, MagicBand+ has some extra "Ka-Chow!" For example, they include color-changing lights and even haptic vibrations that allow Guests to "feel the magic." Moreover, MagicBand+ will also bring gesture recognition capabilities that enable certain movements to create magical experiences. 

    Unfortunately, Colleen, we are still waiting for the release date for MagicBand+. All we know is that they are "coming soon." However, I have noticed that the current MagicBand selection is a lot sparser than usual. Therefore, it wouldn't surprise me if we heard an announcement in the not-too-distant future. I would encourage you to keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog for any exciting news.

    I hope you have a wonderful trip, Colleen. Make sure you enjoy the new nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park, and Harmonious at EPCOT. I'd also recommend Disney KiteTails at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    See ya real soon!
