    When are the Magic band+‘s coming out exactly? I have a trip in September & would really like to know if I have plenty of time to get a new band when they arrive or if I will be struggling to get one if they fly off the site like hot cakes

    Hi Makayla! Welcome to planDisney. We’re so glad you’re here!

    I can tell from your question that you’re as excited as I am about the new MagicBand+. I recently had the opportunity to preview this incredible new offering, and I can tell you that it is SUPER cool! Not only does it offer the same convenient features of the MagicBands we know and love, like opening your Disney Resort Hotel room, but it also opens up a whole new way to immerse yourself in the magic of Walt Disney World. Perhaps my favorite part is how you’ll get be able to interact with the awesome golden sculptures of the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection. When you spot one of these gorgeous sculptures, simply wave your wrist, and you’ll hear a message from your favorite Disney characters. How awesome is that? You’ll also love how your MagicBand+ vibrates and lights up in sync with the incredible nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park, and Harmonious at EPCOT. It’s hard to believe that these shows could be made any more amazing, but this certainly does it!

    Unfortunately, Makayla, there is no official release date for the MagicBand+. However, we do know that they are set to be available in the summer of 2022. So, there is a good chance they will be available for purchase before your visit in September. For the latest updates on MagicBand+, I would definitely recommend keeping a super close eye on Disney Parks Blog. This will likely be the first place to learn about the official release date!

    Speaking of new and exciting things at Walt Disney World, have you had a chance to experience one of my new favorite attractions, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure? On this fantastic 4D ride, you'll shrink down to the size of a rat and scurry alongside Chef Remy through the hustle and bustle of Gusteau's restaurant kitchen. It's such tremendous fun, so I definitely recommend checking it out if you visit EPCOT during your upcoming vacation!

    I do hope this answer has been helpful to you! You are visiting during such a wonderful time with so much to do and see at Walt Disney World! So, please visit us again soon if you have any questions or want to hear some of our recommendations. We would love to help make your vacation as magical as possible!

    Bye for now,
