I’m sure many visitors to the Walt Disney World Resort will be familiar with the excitement of selecting their magic band colours prior to their vacations as part of their planning activities. This news will undoubtedly help to build the anticipation further!
As reported today on the Disney Parks Blog Soon, Disney Resort hotel guests and new and renewing Annual Passholders will have the option to upgrade, at a discounted price, from a complimentary solid-color MagicBand to one of more than 30 new MagicBand upgrade options featuring favorite Disney characters and designs. These new MagicBand upgrade options will be available for pre-arrival purchase at a special price that reflects a $14.99 discount off the regular retail cost through the My Disney Experience website.
A colorful selection of complimentary MagicBands is still available for guests who choose not to upgrade. The new upgrade options can also be shipped to guests’ homes (U.S. addresses only) if ordered 11 or more days ahead of arrival and can be personalized if done so at least 6 or more days ahead of arrival.
The following video was also posted which gives a sneak peek of some of the bands which will be on offer.
This update certainly answers a demand from a lot of guests who have wanted to upgrade the solid colour bands to something more personal to them and the discounted pricing structure will I’m sure appeal to a lot of visitors too.
Although no date has yet been announced for this change, we will certainly look forward to checking out the latest offerings on our future visits.
Has anybody else been waiting for this change? Will you be ordering graphic style bands in future or will you look to decline future bands?
As always, Thank you all for reading!
