    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?

    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.

    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.

    I saw a post on Reddit this morning that resort guests started to receive MagicBand 2s.

    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'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.
