Purple Retail MagicBands and More Coming to Walt Disney World

Some of the most popular on many Disney fan websites have been about retail MagicBands. With only a few weeks left in this year, here is an update about new and upcoming retail MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort.

Purple Magic Band

One of the most requested MagicBand colors this year was purple. In fall, Disney introduced a purple option for guests who create retail MagicBands at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom Park. Soon, guests will be able to find an individual purple retail MagicBand in select Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations. This solid color retail MagicBand will join the other solid color MagicBands that Disney currently offers. Look for the purple retail MagicBand in late December.

Character Magic Bands

Another popular MagicBand request this year was for the Orange Bird.  This retail MagicBand was recently released along with a Princess Tiana MagicBand and a red holiday sweater pattern MagicBand featuring Mickey Mouse.

Magic Bandits

In addition to retail MagicBands, we have new MagicBand-its inspired by classic Disney characters and attractions at Disney Parks. These small accessories can be easily attached to the side of any MagicBand.

Disney has added new artwork to the previously mentioned Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. location. They include Orange Bird (which you can now have printed on eight different colors including orange or green as pictured). Disney also has A-E Tickets that are reminiscent of ticket books once used at Disney Parks until the early 1980s.

Magic Band 2016

Finally, Disney will have two new MagicBands celebrating 2016 that will be released on January 1, 2016.

You may find select retail MagicBands using the free Shop Disney Parks mobile app. Some retail MagicBands I mentioned may be available first on the app before being released in merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort. To download, please visit DisneyWorld.com/Shop.
