The FCC recently posted information about a new magic band system titled “MagicBand ID Q3E-MB-R1G2”. Under this new generation of MagicBand technology would replace the straps with a small round puck. The puck could then be moved from band to band similar to how other wearables such as Fitbit allow users to move the tracker from one band to another. It would also allow guests that prefer not wearing their magic band on their wrist to carry the puck in a pocket.
The move is likely a cost savings move as Disney would no longer need to purchase and include the technology components for each individual band. This is particularly true for the myriad of special event and limited edition MagicBand Disney World makes available.
