Tonight The Main Street Mouse has the privilege and honor of announcing a brand new custom item for MagicBands (and a giveaway!!). This new item, called Cover Bands allows guests staying at Walt Disney World resorts to decorate their MagicBands in a new way. Cover Bands are vinyl decals that apply to your MagicBand easily and are removable so you can change them as many times as you like! Cover Bands are the brain child of Morgan Crutchfield and Joe Reynolds who teamed up to create a removable, waterproof, sweat proof cover for Disney’s MagicBands. Cover Bands are made from 3M vinyl. Cover Bands will usually ship standard USPS 3-4 business days from point of purchase, limited editions, and back order Cover Bands may take slightly longer to ship.
The idea behind Cover Bands was simple, Morgan tried various ways to customize her “boring” Magic Band by using things like stickers and nail polish, but they never turned out quite right. The accessories at the parks felt bulky and odd to her and she wanted to be able to make the band her own. Because Morgan isn’t an artist (at least not of the drawing variety) she spoke to her friend Joe Reynolds, who has a print shop. Her idea “If they can wrap a monorail, why can’t I wrap a MagicBand?”.
Cover Bands are the length of the Magic Bands “colored” area leaving the grey removable section exposed, and saving parents extra work. If the holes on the band need to be used an adult can simply cut open the needed clasp holes. Application of Cover Bands is simple, but instructions will be included with them to ensure they are applied properly, and an application video will be posted on the Cover Band’s Facebook page for those of us that are visual learners. Bands range from $6-$10 depending on the series.
Cover Bands will have Series released allowing Walt Disney World guests to explore all sorts of unique band options. The Classic Series will include a Fab Five series, with each pattern available individually, or a a complete set of five, the Tangled Lanterns Cover, the Tron Cover, a Haunted Mansion inspired Cover, and because we all know every little girl wants to build a snowman right now, a Frozen inspired Cover which includes a FREE set of three character stickers that match the cover pattern and can be used on the Cover Band, or any other surface your little princess decides she wants to apply it to. The Artists’ Series is a range of limited edition, custom Cover Bands whose designs have been created just for DVC Central. Wearing an Artists’ Series Band is like wearing a piece of art. Currently an amazing Tangled inspired cover is available in the Artist Series. Limited Edition Cover Bands are printed in a limited run and when they’re gone, they’re gone, so you will want to get them while you can! Cover Band LE’s will include runDisney editions and special releases.
Various holiday, Star Wars, Fairy, Princess, and Expedition Everest Cover Band and more are in the works, so you will want to check often for new and sometimes limited Cover Band options.
Here is the fun part! Have a friend or family member heading to Walt Disney World? Want to add some custom magic to their trip? You can send Cover Bands as gifts!!! Even if you find out about Cover Bands too late to have them shipped,they can be sent to the resort so that they’re waiting at the desk! Simply add instructions in the “comments” section of your order that they Cover Bands are a gift and who and where you would like them shipped to, or the date you are arriving at your resort and the resort you are staying at. You will want to make sure you provide a good email address when ordering so that any questions can be clarified.
