The Long Awaited Purple MagicBand

Purple MagicBand 2

Update 3/8/16: The purple MagicBand is now available as
a free option when you customize your MagicBand!

Did you know that one of the most requested MagicBand colors in 2015 was purple? Well, Disney heard your pleas, and if you’re a fan of figment, Fear, or the Haunted Mansion wallpaper, you’ll be happy to know that the new purple  MagicBand is now available. However, there is a catch…the long awaited purple MagicBand is not in the current lineup of free choices and there appears to be no plans to add it in the near future. If you want this beauty, you’ll have to shell out an additional $12.95 online or at select Disney World shopping locations. The purple option can also be used as a base for a customized MagicBand at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom. These custom MagicBands start at $21.95.

If you are looking for a more economical way to personalize your MagicBand, definitely check out Magic YOUR Band. If you aren’t familiar with this product, these adorable decals attach directly to your Disney World MagicBand creating your own personalized look.

Tip Of The Week

Extra Magic HoursDisney offers a perk called Extra Magic Hours which allows resort hotel guests early or late access to a theme park on select days. While this sounds like an outstanding idea, the morning Extra Magic Hours only work to your advantage if you can be there early enough to enjoy that extra hour before the park opens. If you can’t be there early, then you’ll want to avoid that theme park for the day, because the morning Extra Magic Hours make that park much more crowded. If you do use the morning Extra Magic Hours, consider “park hopping” to another theme park around 11:00am.
