PHOTOS: MagicBand Prices Increase at Walt Disney World and on shopDisney

Guests looking to purchase MagicBands were hit with a less-than-pleasant surprise at Walt Disney World on Wednesday.


The price of open edition MagicBands has increased by $5.00 at each of the three pricing levels. Coral-level bands are now $19.99, while Bronze-level bands are $29.99 and amethyst-level bands sell for $34.99. The signage reminds guests that MagicBands are not for internal or subdermal use.


Previously, coral MagicBands were $14.99, while bronze and amethyst cost $24.99 and $29.99, respectively.


The increase has also hit shopDisney. The Frontierland MagicBand we first reported was on shopDisney in March has gone up from $29.99 to $34.99, while the limited edition “Best Disney Dad” MagicBand is now $39.99. This is just the latest price increase to hit Walt Disney World. Last month, the price of hand-built lightsabers made at Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios were raised $20.00.
