  • Not sure if it’s just me, but all this time I’d thought the puck thing would just pop out with a bit of pushing, kind of like a cell-phone case. Good to see you actually need a screwdriver to remove them; kids’ll be less likely to lose them.

    Will these be available by mid January 2017? Also, will they be selling both types of magic bands? Or will they eventually move 100% to this new style?

    • Jen,

      Actually we just lied to you because we wanted to test and see if you were a little know it all and would tell Tom he was wrong. Congratulations Jen, you failed. Now you get nothing, nothing!

      Have a magical day!

    • Info was directly from an e-mail sent to higher level Cast Members. Confirmed from one of my most trusted sources. He got the e-mail today.

      • Ethan,

        I have a reservation for March and was hoping Disney would release the Magic Band 2 to resort guests. Do you have an update from your source? Are these still rolling out to resort guests starting January? Also, I did speak with several cast members and they don’t know a set date, but they probably don’t have that info yet.


  • My puck got stuck in my butt. I’m hoping it will come out. The RF’s are making my tummy hurt. Any advice?
