What is happening:

  • Now that Walt Disney World has launched its MagicBand+ offersshopDisney has made several designs available to guests and a new style is on the way.
  • Today, shopDisney tweeted that the latest design to join the range would be electric parade themed.
  • Interestingly, this look doesn’t have “Main Street” branding, but instead reads: “Disney’s Electrical Light Parade.” Could this mean the recently relaunched nighttime spectacular is heading to WDW??
  • From the photo that was shared, it’s clear that Mickey Mouse is part of the style and he’s featured in his LED glory striking his signature pose.
  • The center point of the MagicBand+ accessory features a purple snail with a green and blue shell and below on the band is a mushroom hosting a butterfly.
  • It’s unclear if this group will have any shiny elements (aside from the digital features) like some of Electrical Parade’s other products. Although it doesn’t appear to be part of the “Main Street Electrical Parade” line.
  • MagicBand+ accessories with colorful designs like this one sells for $44.99.
  • Disney’s Electrical Light Parade MagicBand+ will be available on shopDisney on August 17.
  • Check back soon for a link to the MagicBand.
