MAJOR Changes to Magic Bands are being revealed to guests and D23 Destination D Event at Walt Disney World In Florida

MAJOR Changes to Magic Bands are being revealed to guests and D23 Destination D event at Walt Disney World In Florida.

@ParksNStuff has just given us permission to use these incredible photos.

There were rumors floating around in the summer.  They were apparently true!  (Pictures Below)

We reported a while back that patents had been obtained for what looked to be new Magic Band designs.  D23 announced today that Magic Band 2 is real and happening.  The center of the band is designed like a small hockey puck that can be transferred from Magic Band to Magic Band and maintain of the same information.  Not only that since it transfers to other holders, this means the Magic Band could now become a keychain or other means of holding on the the technology part of the device.  The first guests that will be able to get their hands on these will be the guests that attend the limited D23 exclusive event, Destination D: Amazing Adventures that will be held at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  We expect further details to come out about a full release very soon.  As always, we will keep you posted as we learn more!

We will keep you posted as more details surface.

The FCC posted information about a system for MagicBand ID Q3E-MB-R1G2.  This system would allow guests to keep the same “puck” as they wanted to change straps.  This should lower production costs since the technology components of the bands wouldn’t need to be purchased each time, as no chips would be imbedded within the straps.

Disney wouldn’t need to have multiple band records for repeat guests or guests who purchase limited edition bands, so they could save in costs for delivering additional Magic Bands each time.  The IT resources and operational resources to manage the system should lessen with this development.

The collectors are definitely wondering what this means for the future of Magic Bands.

About Shari Davis

Shari Davis fell in love with Walt Disney World on her first trip in 1992 at the age of 6. Her most vivid memory of that trip is being secretly excited that she could ride Splash Mountain and her younger sister wasn’t tall enough. Shari now has an almost one year old daughter, Colette, and she can't wait to see the look on her daughter's face when she sees Cinderella Castle for the first time and meets her first Disney Princess. You can find her riding the Tower of Terror over and over, enjoying a margarita at the La Cava del Tequila, or obsessively trying to make a reservation at Be Our Guest. Additionally, Shari is currently seeking to instill the same passion for Disney in her husband. Updates to come.
