Disney’s been making some changes to its MagicBands recently!
As the new MagicMobile service rolls out as an optional replacement to MagicBands, our favorite little wrist accessories have gotten some adjustments! First, they were no longer complimentary for Resort Guests — and as of August 16th, 2021, they won’t be free for Annual Passholders, either. And now, we’re seeing another change.
That’s right, friends — MagicBands have gotten a price increase! Besides those $5 Resort Guest MagicBands, your cheapest option was previously a solid band for $14.99. Well, in a $5 price increase, those plain MagicBands are now $19.99! You’ll see the new price reflected both in stores and online.
Other MagicBand styles are more expensive now, too! Themed MagicBands (those with designs inspired by rides, characters, etc.) now cost $29.99…
…while limited release bands (like this brand-new Olaf design!) are now $34.99.
Disney’s updated their color labeling system to reflect these changes. Coral indicates the $19.99 solid MagicBands; bronze is the themed bands; and amethyst represents those limited releases.
For comparison, here are the old prices.
You can find the corresponding color label on the back of your MagicBand!
If you’re in the market for a MagicBand, do keep these price changes in mind. Let us know if YOU would splurge the extra cash for a MagicBand — and how you feel about these MagicBand changes in general. And remember, if you don’t want to spend this much, you can opt to use Disney’s free MagicMobile service instead (although spoiler: most of our readers would prefer not to)! We’ve got a full guide on that right here for you.
