PHOTOS: New Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Halloween 2019 MagicBands Added to Build-A-Band Upgrade Options for Walt Disney World Resort Guests

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

UPDATE: When we first ran this article earlier today, pricing for the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge MagicBand was set at $29.99. Disney is now contacting all those who purchased the band at full price via email to inform them of a price discrepancy. The band is in fact priced at $15.00, just as with all other Limited Release bands available on Build-A-Band upgrades.

If you’ve got a Walt Disney World vacation coming up, there are a number of things to be excited about, but you can amp up the excitement––for an additional price––by upgrading the MagicBands for your upcoming stay. The ever popular Build-A-Band upgrade list has been recently updated with a new Halloween 2019 MagicBand featuring Mickey, and a special Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge MagicBand as well.

Take a look at all the current upgrade options below:

August 2019 Build-A-Band Upgrade Options

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge MagicBand – $29.99

It may not have an actual “Special Pre-Order Price”, but for now, it seems this is the only way to obtain this MagicBand, as it has sold out on the app and is not available in stores.

Halloween 2019 Vampire Mickey MagicBand – $15.00

You can also get this new Mickey Halloween MagicBand at half price just in time for the upcoming Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties.

Will you be upgrading your MagicBands for your upcoming trip or Annual Pass renewal (or purchase)? If you like either of these, be sure to upgrade soon, as these and many other options tend to sell out fast. For a full step-by-step guide on how to upgrade your MagicBands, click here!

Hey Fig/team; i ordered the galaxies edge magic band today and just got a $15 credit for the purchase due to a pricing error on their end

It seems very strange that the only magic band without a special price / incentive to buy is the Star Wars band. 100% of the upgrades options minus Star Wars have a discount. I think Disney messed up personally.

Are these the only upgrade options they will have all through August or do they change?

Is there any way to know what the other side looks like for the Galaxy’s Edge band?
