As the beta testing of the Magic Band continues at the Walt Disney World Resort, it's being reported that some stores on property are selling accessories for the Magic Bands.
The Magic Bands are lightweight, flexible wristbands that will be used by guests to enter the Walt Disney World parks, access FastPass+ attractions, and more. They are part of the MyMagic+ guest experience that Disney is slowing rolling out to guests.
The most recent MyMagic+ testers have been guests at The Contemporary Resorts and Jambo House and the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The accessories for the Magic Bands include MagicSliders and Cover Bands. The Cover Bands will cover the entire Magic Band and the designs include Minnie Mouse polka dots, colorful Mickey Mouse faces, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mickey balloons, and a red band featuring iconic Mickey shapes. The MagicSliders are made to slide over the Magic Band and fit around the Mickey icon touch point.
In addition to the MagicSliders and Cover Bands, guests can also purchase MagicBandits for their Magic Bands. These are small decorative charms that attach to the bands, much the same way Jibbitz attach to Crocs shoes. The MagicBandits designs include Tinker Bell, Mickey Mouse, Sorcerer Mickey, The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Muppets, Phineas and Ferb, and more.
