    How do I find out when MagicBand+ is going to be available. I don't want to purchase regular MagicBands if the + will be available for our trip.

    Hi Traci!

    Thanks for coming back to see us at planDisney! Just like you, I'm so excited about the arrival of MagicBand+. I love using MagicBands during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, so news of this upgrade has made me even more excited for our upcoming trips. It's going to be amazing to interact with the theme parks in new ways with updated MagicBand+ technology and I love that we will have more customization options with color-changing lights on the MagicBand+!

    Unfortunately, we don't have a specific timeline for when MagicBand+ will debut, but we do know they are planned to be introduced as part of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. Since we are now several months into the birthday festivities for the "Most Magical Place on Earth," hopefully MagicBand+ will arrive sooner rather than later.

    It looks like your vacation is still a few months away, so I recommend that you wait before purchasing MagicBands for your upcoming trip, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for announcements and hopefully, we will get word soon about the arrival of MagicBand+. If you haven't heard about MagicBand+ four to six weeks before your trip, then you can purchase MagicBands for your vacation. You can also choose to wait until you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort to purchase your MagicBands, which will give you a bit more time to wait for the arrival of MagicBand+. We have purchased MagicBands at the start of our vacation during past trips and it was a fun way for my little ones to pick their first souvenEAR!

    I'm sending pixie dust your way in the hopes that MagicBand+ will be available for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
