    Where can I purchase the original magic bands?

    Hi Clarissa! Thanks for bringing your question about MagicBands to planDisney!

    It’s hard to believe it but the Walt Disney World Resort has been using MagicBands as a vacation accessory for more than a decade! During that time, we’ve seen a few versions of the popular wristbands. The original version of the band was discontinued and replaced with the MagicBand2. Even though they were the second generation of bands, Guests continued to commonly refer to them as “MagicBands.” The MagicBand2 can still be found in limited quantities on or as a pre-arrival exclusive for Guests who have booked a Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Of course, the newest version is MagicBand+! These are loaded with great features such as being able to interact with experiences throughout the parks such as fireworks shows and attractions. I also love that they are rechargeable and can be used for multiple visits! They also come with all the features that we love about MagicBands – they can be used as your resort room key, can capture Disney Photo Pass images, and be used for making purchases for merchandise and Disney Dining!

    Clarissa, as I mentioned, the very first MagicBands were discontinued several years ago. If you’re looking for one as a souvenir or one with special meaning, you might consider visiting a popular online auction website to see if you can find an original MagicBand. The original MagicBands would have lost their functionality by now but do make for a great display or souvenir!

    Dreams do come true!
