New Ahsoka MagicBand+ Arrives at Disneyland Resort

A new Ahsoka MagicBand+ is available at Disneyland Resort. We found it at the merchandise cart between Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the middle entrance of three access points for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park.

The MagicBand+ is inspired by Ahsoka’s appearance.

The center puck is orange with the white diamonds of Ahsoka’s face markings. She uses these markings as her Fulcrum symbol during “Star Wars Rebels.”

The rest of the band is white, with jagged blue stripes.

The striped sections represent Ahsoka’s lekku — three head tails she has as a member of the Togruta species.

Ahsoka Tano herself is now appearing nearby at Black Spire Outpost.

‘Ahsoka’ Disney+ Series

The new live-action “Ahsoka” series debuted on Disney+ this week. Rosario Dawson reprises her role as Ahsoka Tano, with Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Hayden Christensen returning as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.

Ashley Eckstein originally voiced Ahsoka in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels.” Dawson previously appeared as the live-action Ahsoka in “The Mandalorian” and “The Book of Boba Fett.”

This series is a spin-off from “The Mandalorian,” but also follows up on the cliffhanger of “Star Wars Rebels.” At the end of “Rebels,” main character Ezra Bridger sacrifices himself to defeat Grand Admiral Thrawn by jumping into hyperspace with the purrgil (space whales). His friends Sabine Wren and Ahsoka Tano then vow to find him. The series ended five years ago, so fans have been waiting awhile to find out what happens next.

MagicBand+ Explained

MagicBand+ is the latest iteration of MagicBand, which guests can use in place of a physical ticket to enter Disney Parks, attach PhotoPass pictures, make purchases, and more. It is available at Walt Disney World Resort and was also the first version of the series to launch at Disneyland Resort. It recently launched as DisneyBand on Disney Cruise Line.

Unlike previous styles, these newer bands interact with the environment of Disney Parks. They light up and vibrate, synching up with Disney attractions and nighttime spectaculars. They interact with Disney Fab 50 statues and can be used to play games like Disney Fab 50 Quest at Walt Disney World and Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters is at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disneyland Park. The latest band interaction has also begun with Disney100 decorations at Disneyland Resort.
