    Hello. I am wondering if Disney plans to release any new designs of the MagicBand 2 now that MagicBand Plus has been released, or will all new designs now be MagicBand Plus? Thanks!

    Hi Jeff, welcome to planDisney!

    The magic of Walt Disney World Resort's 50th Anniversary Celebration is calling. September's a great month to answer the call. The planDisney panelists recently released our top tips for experiencing the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. I hope you find some of these tips helpful when planning your visit.

    I have a MagicBand time capsule at my house, Jeff. It's a box where I keep all of my family's MagicBands, even our first-generation bands in that iconic gray. It's like taking a trip down memory lane each time we select which bands will be joining us on our next trip. The MVP of my collection is a black MagicBand 2 design featuring multi-colored Mickey balloons. It matches everything! My newly ordered MagicBand+ is on its way, but my MVP will also be making an appearance on my next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. MagicBand 2 batteries are said to last approximately two years, but mine is still going strong after four!

    Both MagicBand 2 and MagicBand+ designs are currently available online for Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests' pre-arrival orders, online at shopDisney, and at Walt Disney World Resort. A Cast Member shared that MagicBand+ designs are now the top priority while also confirming that Magic Band 2 designs will continue to be a valid way for Guests to access the magic during their Walt Disney World Resort vacations. All MagicBands must be linked to an individual in My Disney Experience before use, keeping in mind that the linking process for MagicBand 2 and MagicBand+ is different.  

    I am excited that MagicBand+ has a rechargeable battery. I don't know how much battery life my MVP has in her, but I'll cherish each Disney day we get to spend together. May you find a MagicBand that brings you joy, as well.

    Plan magic; planDisney.
