    Any news on when the Magicbands 2 will be released to families staying on Disney property? We've reserved our room at the All-star Movie resort for the end of February but we are holding off ordering our park tickets in the hopes of getting the MB2.

    Hi Jennifer! Everyone is anxiously anticipating the new Magic Bands that Disney has come out with. They were announced at the fall gathering of D23 members and since then we have all been waiting for one of our own.

    Many of us recently discussed the timing of the release and Disney has not given any dates. Guests who have a January reservation were not sent the new bands. So it is simply a wait and see and we all know it is best to wait to make sure they will be perfect before releasing them to all. I strongly suggest you go ahead and purchase your tickets for your trip and get them linked to your My Disney Experience account or open one as soon as possible and link the tickets. For resort guests you can make your FastPass selections as early as 60 days out. You will want to do that on the first possible day to make sure you get some of the more popular attractions set into your plan.

    If the new bands are available you will get them in place of the old ones when they ship the box to you so waiting isn't going to help you one way or the other. I too will be excited when I open my first box and find the new bands in there!
