The MagicBand+ recently debuted in Disney World, giving guests a NEW way to interact in the parks.
These new bands offer more features than the regular MagicBand, like lights, haptics, gesture recognition, and more, but they also come at a higher price. Some guests qualified for a discount — and if you placed an order for an upcoming visit, you might not be getting your order in time.
Not long ago, we told you about a way to get a discount on the new MagicBand+! As long as you have an upcoming Disney World hotel reservation or you’re an Annual Passholder, you could visit your account on Disney World’s website (My Disney Experience) to place an order for a discounted MagicBand+.
Each MagicBand+ was available for $10 less than retail, with plain bands costing $24.99 and designs costing $34.99. It seems like so many people placed orders that Disney sent out an email this afternoon announcing that they will not be able to fulfill some orders in time for upcoming visits.
As a result, Disney said they will be issuing refunds to people who will not receive their MagicBand+ in time for their Disney World visit, making their existing order complimentary. Furthermore, they will also be emailing a $50 digital gift card for use toward a MagicBand+ purchase in the parks (or anything else).
If you placed a MagicBand+ order through My Disney Experience, you might want to check your email to find out if your order has been delayed, and keep an eye out for your digital gift card so you can buy one in the parks!
