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.

New Orange Bird Home Décor and More Landing This Fall at Disney Parks

The Orange Bird returned to Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park in 2012, and can now be found in the Sunshine Tree Terrace location. Last year, Disney introduced several Orange Bird-themed products at Disney Parks. Disney is happy to report additional items will be arriving soon.

Orange Bird 1

These new home décor items will include two small kitchen towels decorated with Orange Bird graphics. An Orange Bird coffee mug, small dish, and salt and pepper shakers are also planned. These items were designed to complement the previously released bowl, orange juice pitcher  and small juice glasses.

One of my favorite items (besides the coffee mug) will be the new, open edition retail MagicBand coming this December to select Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations.

Orange Bird Returns to the Sunshine Tree Terrace on May 29th

Orange Bird

Walt Disney World has announced that the Orange Bird is returning to the Sunshine Tree Terrace in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom starting May 29.

You may recall that Aloha Isle Refreshments and Sunshine Tree Terrace swapped menus and locations. Starting Friday, guests will again find the Orange Bird figurine that was reintroduced to Adventureland in 2012. He is also being added to the marquee for the location. Finally, Orange Bird will be prominently featured in a new attraction poster found at Magic Kingdom Park.

To celebrate, we are offering the poster as an adult and youth T-shirt on our Disney Parks online store from May 29 to June 4. An Art on Demand canvas wrap and print will also be available online. Please allow 3-5 weeks for delivery.

You can order these items by visiting DisneyStore.com/ParkEvents.
