“MagicBands” in colors and characters – an awesome photo tour

It looks as though you will not only be able to choose an armband in your favorite color – but you will get to customize it even further with your favorite character or design.

I heard from a reliable source today that Star Wars characters will also be an option, but I couldn’t find any photos to show you as an example.

For the first time, Disney released two limited edition, retail MagicBands with pre-printed images (edition size 2,500 each) during Star Wars weekends 2014. A green retail MagicBand with Yoda’s image and a red retail MagicBand with Darth Vader’s image (colors were selected to match their light saber colors). Each retail MagicBand was packaged in a decorative Star Wars Weekends box (you could even use the free Aurasma app on your mobile device to make the box image come to life).

  • Was at Disney June 16-24. They started a soft roll out of the magic bands at select resorts if you checked in on the Thursday, Friday, Saturday only. So I did not get one. They are still experiencing a lot of problems so don’t get one yet unless you have time to be a guinea pig. Keep good records if you have the dinning plan since it messed up most people I talked to that got one. Soon this will go live everywhere and it will be the coolest thing ever! Until then grin & bear the growing pains.

  • I just booked my magic band for a Jan-Feb 2014 stay and the only customization available (last night) was color and your name…no characters.

  • What are your thoughts?
