When do the new version of the MagicBands go into use? Or have they already?
They have already. You can buy graphic bands and APs are getting the new band when they renew
An additional question to the OP's - when do they become part of the vacation packages? I have trip booked for May....will I have the new bands or will they continue to send the 1st gen?
That's really what I was wondering. Thanks for the assist!
Resort guests should be receiving them now as well
We just got our bands for our trip January 24-29 and they are the old bands. We booked a play, stay and dine package.
My AP renewal band came yesterday and it was MB2
I just spoke with Disney, and the CM said that as of right now, everybody (besides AP holders) is still receiving the original magicbands, but that it could change anytime although there is no set timetable for the change.
The article I read (I forget if it was on here or another site) said that the new bands would ship in December for AP holders and January for regular guests. I don't know if that's true/the exact timeline, though.
Rats! I was hoping to get the new ones as well! Oh well, guess we'll have to go back later on in 2017
I saw a post on Reddit this morning that resort guests started to receive MagicBand 2s.
My wife and I just got our Magic Bands and they are the new V2 style. We're staying at the Carribean Beach at the end of January.
We are not AP holders. We booked a stay, play, dine package a couple of months back.

I just got mine today for my (non-AP) Jan 31st trip-- it was a v2 one as well, so it looks like resort guests are in the clear!
I got new ones 2 days ago!!! So exciting lol
I've been here since Wednesday, and every day more and more guests have the new bands! Although I've not seen any of the new accessories for sale, and they only have 2 or 3 new bands.
I actually emailed guest relations to see which bands we would receive for our February trip. I was advised it would be Magicband 2.0. My girlfriend & I like to be different and we order decals/skins for our MagicBands from either magicyourband.com or myfantasybands.com. I know myfantasybands.com will be releasing new decals/skins for the 2.0 at the end of the week! So stoked.
