    My family of 6 is traveling to WDW in early January. Should I purchase Magic Bands now or will the Magic Bands+ be available in the new year?

    Hi Angela! Just when I thought that I couldn’t possibly get more excited for the World’s Most Magical Celebration, Disney just announced the new MagicBand+!

    One feature of the World’s Most Magical Celebration that I am most excited to see is the Fab 50 Character Statue Collection in the Disney Parks! Now, the new MagicBand+ is going to add to that experience by allowing for a virtual interaction with the statues! Of course, the newest reimagining of the MagicBands comes with so many additional features as well! I’m just as excited to see how the new MagicBand+ will interact with the new nighttime spectacular shows!

    We don’t officially know when MagicBand+ is going to launch, but the website does say 2022! I hope we don’t have to wait too long! Keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website, the Disney Parks Blog, and! While we wait, be sure to check out the current batch of MagicBands on! I just added the new Lumiere MagicBand to my Christmas list!
