Walt Disney World annual passholders and hotel guests will have more options when it comes to MagicBands in the future. Disney has announced that 30 select designs will become available to those visitors at a discount.

Previously, the MagicBands for these groups came in a handful of solid colors, unlike the vast selection Disney has created with looks that salute characters, attractions, movies and special events.

Disney hotel guests and passholders will be able to upgrade, at a discounted price, from the free solid-color version ones to more elaborate options ranging from ones tied to Toy Story Land and Epcot’s Spaceship Earth to “Moana” and a Minnie Mouse shout-out themed with bows and polka dots.

These bands retail for $24.99 but will be available to the hotel guests and passholders for a “pre-arrival” price of $10.

MagicBands, introduced in 2014, are wearable technology that, when activated, can serve as theme-park tickets, FastPass+ reservation holders, hotel-room keys and for dining plan users. They are connected with the My Disney Experience app.
