    I've read about magic bands 2. When will these switch over, and are the bands available at online Disney store mb1 or mb2? Are the ones available at Space Mountain store mb1 or mb2? We're arriving in May.

     Greetings, Elizabeth! Ever since MagicBands came out several years ago, I’ll admit that I’m becoming a collector! I have several solid colors and a few patterns that I’ve picked up along the way.

    MagicBand 2 is indeed out, and available to guests. If you have a reservation to stay on property at Walt Disney World Resort, you will be able to personalize your MagicBand via My Disney Experience and will most likely be send a MagicBand 2, since they are rolling out this year. Some guests and Annual Passholders have already received theirs! If you’d like to choose something a little more personal in terms of color and design, you can pick up a new band at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co in Magic Kingdom park. 

    As a Type-A planner, I love perusing the MagicBands available online at Disneystore.com, too.  Currently, a few MagicBand 2s are available for purchase. I’ve got my eye on that Sorcerer Mickey design! 

    Of course, your first edition MagicBands will still work at all Walt Disney World Resort hotels, at attraction FastPass+ lanes and for purchasing items in the parks.  The internal battery usually lasts 3-5 years, so nothing to worry about there. Have a magical vacation! ~Lindsey
