    I keep seeing that the Disney MagicBand+ will be on sale in Summer. Do you know when we can purchase the Band+'s? We have our trip booked and have been waiting for those to come out before purchasing other bands.

    Hi Jamie! Welcome to planDisney!

    Like you, I am SO excited for the release of the new MagicBand+! I had a chance to preview this fantastic new offering at an event earlier this month, and I can tell you that it is as cool as it sounds! Of course, any day at Walt Disney World is fabulous, but with MagicBand+, you have even more ways to experience the magic. For example, your MagicBand+ will vibrate and light up in sync with nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT. I mean, I never thought these shows could get any better, but it really does enhance the magic!

    So, while we do know that MagicBand+ is coming this summer, unfortunately, we don’t have an official release date. So, I would definitely recommend keeping an eye on Disney Parks Blog for the most up-to-date information on when MagicBand+ will be available for purchase.

    In the meantime, I would actually recommend holding off on purchasing a MagicBand and picking one out in person when you arrive at the theme parks or from World of Disney at Disney Springs instead. This way, you can wait until you arrive in hopes that the new MagicBand will be available for purchase for your trip. If it’s not out yet, you can pick up a MagicBand from one of the many shops around Walt Disney World, which often have many more styles to choose from than are available online. Alternatively, you can also just pick up a Key to the World Card from the Front Desk of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel or ticket booth outside the parks. You can use these cards to unlock your hotel room, enter the theme parks and much more. Plus, the cards are super adorable, featuring many of our favorite Disney characters, and make for a perfect keepsake to remember your trip!

    I do hope this answer has been helpful to you! If you have any other questions as you wrap up the planning of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please stop back over to planDisney! We would love to help you make the absolute most of your vacation!

    Until next time,
