    Hi! Are MagicBand2 still available to buy? We would love magic bands but don't really want a MagicBand+ for our trip in May 2024!

    Hiya India!

    Welcome to planDisney! MagicBands or as they are known internationally, Disney bands, are available in two different formats right now. 

    The MagicBand 2 and the MagicBand + as they are known in America are both available and used in the Parks. However, the earlier version of the Disney Band (MagicBand 2) is still available for purchase in the Parks but in limited quantities. Some of the best places to look are the gift shops at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and Disney's Pin Traders at Disney Springs. If you are lucky they may be even sold at a discounted price. However, like I said before, quantities seem to be diminishing every time I visit. I'm not sure if new designs are even being made and there is a chance they will be plain solid colors only. 

    I know that the newest version of Disney bands may be a bit more expensive but I hope you know that they work just the same as the older version of Disney bands but with a few more features. Everyone seems to know about the colors and vibrations but many forget that these special bands can be used to play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunter throughout Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios. These newer bands do need to be charged but even if you forget to charge them they still work to allow you entry into the Parks, Lightning Lanes, and your Walt Disney World Resort room door. In addition, if the battery dies, the band can still be used to charge food and merchandise to your Disney Resort hotel room and for any Disney PhotoPass interactions. 

    I hope this helps and if you have any questions please feel free to let me know! 

    Happy Planning!
