A few months ago rumors swirled on the internet that the Magic Band would be redesigned. Earlier today at the D23’s Destination D event the new “puck” style Magic Bands were shown to attendees. The “puck” holds the RFID technology, allowing guests to wear the puck in the Magic Band, or in a Disney designed keychain. The new design seems much thinner than the current bands, which has been a complaint amongst guests. Having interchangeable Magic Bands with the same "puck" is similar to how devices like FitBit work, and will allow guests to more easily change their band to match their outfits or preferred design.
So far that is all that is known about the new “puck” style Magic Band, but if more details are released we will update this story.
