THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ OUR DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
During D23’s event, Destination D they announced a new Magicband 2 design will soon be hitting Disney Parks! So what does all this mean?

Disney is giving you new ways to wear your MagicBand with MagicBand 2! You will notice the center of the new band is larger than the current design. This is because the center “puck” is removable with two screws so you can put it in other holders. During D23’s Destination D they previewed several new ways to wear your MagicBand 2, as a lanyard, keychain, and backpack fobs.

Official Message on New MagicBand 2 from Disney Parks Blog

A new MagicBand is coming to the Walt Disney World Resort as part of our continuing push to innovate and personalize our guest’s vacation experience. MagicBand 2 was just unveiled minutes ago by Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek during a D23’s Destination D: Amazing Adventures presentation – and we have a first look at the new technology.

MagicBand 2 Coming to Walt Disney World Resort

As you can see, MagicBand 2 will feature a new design for the band itself. While the design helps make MagicBand 2 more versatile and customizable it’ll still work like the current MagicBand. You will be able to link My Disney Experience to your MagicBand 2, which can serve as a theme park ticket, access to FastPass+ selections, Disney PhotoPass card as well as a room key for Disney Resort guests.

MagicBand 2 will make its resort-wide debut soon. Be sure to keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for future updates.

MagicKeepers are what I am most looking forward to. This new addition to the Disney MagicBand lineup allows you to wear your MagicBand 2 in all new ways. The center “puck” of your MagicBand 2 is actually removable with a screwdriver. As shown above, MagicKeepers will be available as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse-themed lanyard clips and a carabiner. It has been noted as well, that the MagicKeepers will not include the center colored “puck” and you will have to purchase a MagicBand 2 separately, in addition.
