    Jane from VT Asked

    Hello, love the moms panel! My family is coming back in June 2018. What's new with the magic bands 2? Also, we'd would love to have plain solid black,white or teal as color choices, not just as a character theme band. Any chance? Thanks, Jane VT

    Hi, Jane!

    I am happy to hear you are planning a return visit in 2018. Visiting Mickey in June is a great way to kick off a magical summer!

    Other than the design, the new MagicBands work the same way, serving as your room key, park ticket, use to redeem Disney Dining Plan credits, or even charge back to your room. The colors for the complimentary bands for Disney Resort hotel guests have remained the same: purple, blue, green, orange, pink, yellow, gray, and red. Your choices of black, white, and teal are not currently on that list, but keeping checking the Disney Parks Blog for any updates or news on the MagicBands. 

    What is different on the new MagicBands is the ability to pop out the center puck, and interchange it with other bands for fun color combinations. You can also purchase lanyards that you can fit that puck into if you prefer a lanyard over the actual band. The new bands are a bit thinner and have a bit more flexible. 

    Your vacation will be here before you know it, so start planning and dreaming about your magical visit to Walt Disney World!
