Disney updated MagicBands to MagicBand 2 a couple of years ago and have since added a few new colors at various times. So just how many colors are avaialble now?
So lets take a bit of a step back. Original MagicBands were released in 2015 and started off with just 7 plain base colors; Gray, Red, Yellow, Pink, Orange, Green and Blue.
Disney resort guests could choose one of the 7 colors for 'free' to use throughout their stay.
If you turn up for your vacation at a Disney resort without first choosing your Magic Band Color as described above, you'll be given an plain, un-personalized gray Magic Band. Leading many people to unofficially and unkindly dub this color the 'Gray Band Of Shame' as it's often an indicator that the wearer isn't an experienced Disney vacation planner!
In late December 2015 Disney finally introduced a purple colored Magic Band which had hitherto been one of the most commonly requested colors. Initially the purple MagicBand was only available for sale in Disney retail outlets but was later added as a selectable option for resort guests.
Fast forward to November 2016 when Disney announced MagicBand 2, little was known about them until their eventual release date in early 2017. Initially they were offered for sale through retail outlets, it was a few more months before MagicBand 2 was offered free to resort guests. When that eventually happened MagicBand 2 was offered in Red, Green, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Gray, Pink and Purple.
It wasn't until December 2017 that Disney introduced a new solid color MagicBand 2 for sale. Millenial pink was an immediate hit!!
Black MagicBands followed closely and other colors of MagicBand 2 had been seen in press photos and with printed character MagicBands throughout 2017 and 2018 and speculation was that a teal MagicBand would soon go on sale too.
However, the reality was that it would take until November 2018 before new solid MagicBand colors would appear for sale on shopDisney. New colors were Lavender, Turquoise, Navy, Dark Green and White.
Two more colors have been seen among the character MagicBands but have remained illusive for sale as solid colors on shopDisney. They are Teal, as featured on the Elsa MagicBand and Brown that's on the Grumpy MagicBand. Hopefully these will also be offered for sale as solid color options soon.
