    Kim from MD Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Will the original Magicbands come back into stock? How often are they restocked? I have only seen Magicband2 and Magicband+ offered.

    Hi Kim! Finding the “just right” MagicBand is a fun part of planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    Between, the pre-arrival special offers available for Guests with Walt Disney World Resort vacation reservations, and the shops at the Walt Disney World Resort, there are so many places to find your perfect vacation accessory!

    The very first version of MagicBands was discontinued and is no longer available. They were replaced with the MagicBand2, which many people simply continued to refer to as “MagicBands” (not referencing the “2”). They are still available in limited quantities. It is possible to find the occasional MagicBand2 on, as a pre-arrival special offer through your My Disney Experience after you’ve booked a vacation, or in the stores throughout the Walt Disney World Resort (resort hotel stores and in the four Disney Parks as well). However, the bands that are now most readily available are the MagicBand+ which can be found at any of the places that I mentioned. 

    Kim, depending on what you are specifically searching for, you might consider a popular online auction website for older-style MagicBands that are no longer available to purchase. I will caution that the original MagicBands have lost their functionality by now as they would be about 10 years old (or older).

    The MagicBand2 batteries are said to last up to two years (with some Guests reporting longer life). MagicBand+ is rechargeable which is a welcome update to the MagicBand family!

    I hope this information is helpful with your unique search! Please feel free to come back to planDisney with more questions! 

    Dreams do come true!
