Disney announced a brand new interactive MagicBand just before the anniversary celebration. MagicBand+ will allow Guests to interact with the Fab50 character statues that can now be found in ALL 4 of the Theme Parks. This newly designed band will also light up and even vibrate depending on where you are located in the Parks.

It was also announced that guests could play games at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and that they would interact with nighttime spectaculars. However, not much more information was released and we are still waiting for the release.

In a recent survey to guests regarding MagicBands, we found out a hint as to how much these would cost and more of what to expect of these new MagicBands.

Now we have another clue to a possible release for the new MagicBand+.

On Disney’s website, it says the following about the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection:

Check back later to learn about character sculptures at all 4 theme parks—and discover how they’ll inspire surprising new ways for you to interact with the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.

Hopefully we are right with our guess and we can look forward to the release of the MagicBand+ real soon!
