Arrow Disney magic band merchandise

Was looking at a few Disney videos on YouTube and found one that showed some of the new magic band accessories. Looks like Disney really is putting all bets on these magic bands cause they are even selling T-shirts with magic band theming on them.

It would be cooler if the T-shirts were RFID-enabled.

It really boggles my mind to think guests would actually buy magicband accessories and tshirts.

That shoukd be Marketing at its finest, but Disney is doing a pretty bad job marketing this whole thing.

Doesn't surprise me at all. People buy all kinds of Disney merchandise. If you like Old Key West, you might buy an Old Key West tee-shirt. If you like Magic Bands, you might buy a Magic Bands tee-shirt.

Mark my words, all of this merchandise will be at the outlet stores and Cast Connection in less than a year. Although I'm glad Disney is getting new merchandise in their stores, this isn't exactly what I had in mind...

I wonder if we are going to start seeing magic band "pin" trading. Looks like 3 in a set so maybe guests will start mixing.

Design it, sell it, people will buy!

Why? I know my 6 year old will want to "decorate" her magic band. I'll be happier with these accessories than some stickers she sticks on them and will be half peeling off in pictures. Besides, if a few accessories make my kids happy, it's a nice souvenir and after the thousands of dollars it costs for the vacation in the first place, what's a few more for some band accessories?

I actually like the covers quite a bit. Doesn't seem much different than buying a fancy lanyard. The teeshirts, not so much.
