    I hope I’m able to change mine for early June because we were going to buy three for our trip. This would save me a few bucks. Just checked MDE online and no ability to change it to any but other plain colors as of now.

    I've bought two bands for me, couldn't resist the AP F&G Figment... but keep refusing to buy ones for my kids :D If it's really $10 to upgrade (that's what I could see in the video), I'll definitely surprise them for our Aug trip.

    If you upgrade the MagicBand, they will apply a $14.99 credit (which is the retail price of a solid color MB) to the new MB. So, $10 would be the upgrade cost if you selected a graphic open edition MB which currently sells for $24.99. If they offer any Limited Release or Limited Edition MagicBands, the upgrade price would be higher.

    But would you be able to just upgrade to a solid that’s not presently available for free cause I’d just love a plain teal band

    Doesn't look like the selection of solid colors is changing (except pink is not shown under the free options in the video).

    I went straight there- because yes, Disney please I don't have enough options to give you even more of my money. I already have all of the standard colors multiple times and $10 isn't that bad IMO. Not on the site yet for our Aug/Sep trip.

    Hmmm....$10 each. Such a smart move and so tempting! That said, we do have lots of fun decorating our MBs with tattoos and jewel stickers at home. That only costs $1-3 total for supplies from the dollar store. I think I'll save the money for more matching tees.

    I'm pretty excited about this! I'm also very surprised it has taken them this long to offer it. It really is a no-brainer upcharge item for them. My dilemma is going to be which one to choose because it already takes me forever to decide on a solid colour, with so many choices, it will be so hard. Can't wait for it to go live to see the options.

    We normally avoid all the upcharges, but I'd pay $10 for this! In the past we've spent $5 a person buying decals, and these will look nicer and last better. I bet this is going to be popular. I'm surprised it took this long.
