Disney today is sharing details on the first retail MagicBand 2 and MagicKeeper accessories that will be sold at Walt Disney World.

On December 16, Disney will release a limited edition retail MagicBand 2 that celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the “it’s a small world” attraction. This classic Magic Kingdom Park attraction opened in 1971. Presented in a decorative box, the MagicBand 2 will have an edition size of 2,500.

On December 19, two retail MagicBand 2 designs for 2017 will be released. These designs incorporate the dated 2017 program artwork you will find on select merchandise items in the coming year.

Finally, Disney also previewed some of new MagicKeepers for guests who prefer an alternative way to wear their MagicBand 2. MagicKeepers will include two Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse-themed lanyard clips and a carabiner. The images above show how MagicKeepers will be sold (without a removable icon) and how they appear with removable icons.

The MagicKeeper accessories will be released at a future date.
