A new MagicBand is coming to the Walt Disney World Resort as part of the continuing push to innovate and personalize the guest’s vacation experience.
MagicBand 2 will feature a new design for the band itself. While the design helps make MagicBand 2 more versatile and customizable it’ll still work like the current MagicBand.
The new band’s design allows guests to take out the middle disc and attach it to accessories other than the band, to be used for lanyards, keychains, etc.
You will be able to link My Disney Experience to your MagicBand 2, which can serve as a theme park ticket, access to FastPass+ selections, Disney PhotoPass card as well as a room key for Disney Resort guests.
The MagicBand 2 will be mailed to Walt Disney World annual pass holders starting in December 2016. In January 2017, resort guests will start to receive the new MagicBands as well. Around the same time, the retail versions of MagicBand 2 will be released, along with the new accessories such as the keychains.
