MagicBands may be getting a major update soon but you don’t HAVE to make the upgrade to the new MagicBand+ — and there are suddenly a bunch of new classic MagicBands selections to choose from!


MagicBands are a wearable technology that connect to the My Disney Experience app, and as long as you have an account and set up all your experiences, you can access your theme park tickets, Annual Pass, Disney World hotel, credit card, and more. Although the MagicBand+ will require you to recharge it on a regular basis, you can still get a classic MagicBand (with a battery that lasts quite a while!) and there are some NEW designs you might be interested in!

MagicBands allow you to gain entrance into Disney World parks (with valid admission), hotel room access, the ability to charge purchases to your room, enter Lightning Lanes, and plenty of other convenient options. And now on shopDisney just days from the new MagicBand+ release, there are over 10 NEW MagicBand designs to choose from! This Dooney & Bourke Lady and the Tramp MagicBand is limited release and it comes in a special presentation box.


This MagicBand is designed with vintage movie poster art and it comes with a gold Dooney & Bourke logo slider. Grab it for $48!

The sudden release of all these classic MagicBands so close to the MagicBand+ launch could be due to past supply chain issues, but the good news is that you can still use a regular MagicBand even after the MagicBand+ is released!
