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!
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!
