Magic Band 2.0 Now Available for Walt Disney World Resort Guests

Credit: Disney

We previously reported that Disney has launched the new MagicBand 2.0.  It was first distributed to D23 members and Annual Passholders, but we have received confirmation that the new MagicBand 2.0 is now being shipped to resort guests for their upcoming vacations.  You still customize your Magic Bands through your My Disney Experience account like always, and the new Magic Band is sent to the address that you specify.  There have been no changes to My Disney Experience yet to display the look of Magic Band 2.0.

The Magic Bands will arrive in slightly different packaging that has a little bit different look and feel to it. The center puck-like portion of the Magic Band is removable using the tool that is sent in the package with the Magic Bands.  This allows the same technology and information that used to be limited to one band to be used in other wrist bands, key chains, lanyards, etc.  We haven’t see accessories on the market yet, but expect them to hit very soon.

Have any of you received Magic Band 2.0, yet?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
