The Incredibles: MagicBandits

Disclaimer: Here I'll be talking about MagicBandits again, so if you read my other posts about the Monsters Inc. and the Cars ones, I'll just be mostly reusing what I said there.

Today's post is something I had a lot of fun with in Disney World...they're called MagicBandits! I had no idea about these before my trip but they turned out to be a really fun surprise. They're basically just little accessories that snap into the extra holes of your magic band (seen below) to add additional pops of color and personality. At first when I saw these, I thought they were kind of a pointless way for Disney World to make extra money. I was like"these are lame, who would buy these." That thought didn't last more than ten seconds.

The first ones I saw in the parks were the Monsters Inc. ones, which sold me on the idea of these things.  I thought it would be fun to add some of my love for Pixar to my magic band and my overall ensemble. After finding those, I was hooked and looked for more Pixar related Bandits. I then found a great Cars 3-pack (featuring Lightning Mcqueen, Mater and Lightning's signature number 95 logo)and then found out there was this rare/sold out Incredibles 4-pack. 

I couldn't find these ones in the parks anywhere...I looked at every single park and gift shop I went in and there was no sign of them. Come to find out, these have been sold out for a while as they were from the previous summer. I was so excited to have gotten them on eBay for my birthday from my awesome wife Brita! For now, my Pixar MagicBandits collection is complete...until they release more (which I hope they do)!

You're probably wondering if these stay on well, and yes, once you pop them on, they're pretty secure. They can snag on things, however, and pop off (I had that happen once or twice, for example getting off of Rockin' Roller Coaster). For the most part though, you won't have to worry about them falling off. Getting these for young kids though may be a different story, since they could easily rip them off. I definitely wouldn't get them for kids under six or seven, but it totally depends on the kid of course. Just in case you do plan on getting these Bandits for very young kids, be aware that they can easily be snagged on something or ripped off and lost. 

Anyway, that's about it with these things. They're fun and I definitely recommend decorating your magic band when you go. They have many different Disney characters, from the classics to the Muppets, to choose from! You can find them in just about every park and resort gift shop.
