Finding Nemo: MagicBandits

pixar magicbandits

Ever since MagicBandits became a thing at Walt Disney World, people have asked me numerous times if there were any Finding Nemo themed ones out there. Well, I'm happy to finally be able to say- "why yes, there are!"

Since I started collecting MagicBandits during our 2014 Disney World vaca (see my other posts featuring Monsters Inc., The Incredibles, Toy Story and Cars Bandits), I had also hoped that Finding Nemo ones would someday be released.


If you've never heard of these "MagicBandits", here's the scoop. They're basically just little vinyl charms that snap into the extra holes of your magic band (check out the back of the package above) to add additional pops of color and personality. Many different Disney characters are available!

Honestly, when I first saw these at the parks, I thought they were kind of a pointless way for Disney World to make extra money (I know, not my usual positive outlook). I was like"these are lame, who would buy these." However, that thought didn't last more than ten seconds once I saw Pixar themed ones were available.

Check them out attached to my Magic Band below! They look great.

The first Pixar Bandits I ever 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 fun Cars 3-pack (featuring Lightning Mcqueen, Mater and Lightning's signature number 95 logo) and then found out there was a rare/sold out Incredibles 4-pack (which I got online once I got home). Earlier this year, a Toy Story themed 3-pack was released.

You may be wondering if these stay on well. Yes, for the most part. 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 and toss them aside. 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 pulled off and lost. 

You can find these currently at the Disney Parks and gift shops in Orlando, but if you're interested in tracking these down before your next Disney vacation, check them out HERE or be sure to visit this direct link to current eBay listings. Good luck and have fun!
