    And even funnier is that there is no one definitive color for Millenial pink. It could have been a salmon color and calling it Millenial pink would have been accurate. I guess it’s a metaphor for our post modern views - “Your Millenial pink is not my Millenial pink, but that’s OK. There is no one Millenial pink that has to be correct.”

    Chanel pink? That's how I see it, with the darker border. I like it!!

    I have a handbag exactly that color, and the shade is called Petal. It’s the pink of a thousand names.

    I love the color, and would totally chose it if it were the free one. But there’s no way I’d pay for a plain color magic band.

    Do you think they will be one of the colours you can choose when staying on property?

    Perhaps they're called Millennial Pink because they only work occasionally (and then mostly only at Starbucks), can never commit to a set of FP+ selections for more than a short time, constantly need to be revalidated by checking in through a social media account, and usually lead to some heated debates about whether earlier generations of MagicBands are better.

    Joking aside (and no I'm not endorsing millennial stereotypes), these look much better than the older pink MBs - which were a little too vibrant (as are most of the MB colors - I could go for more toned down MB colors in general). It seems these will be VERY popular.

    I really hope these will become an option for onsite guests. I love this light pink. It's a lot classier than the hot pink bands they have currently. But I would also not pay anything extra for a solid colored band.

    I thought maybe they live in their parent's basement and complain about their worthless English degree. Perhaps they do that and work occasionally at Starbucks.

    I LOVE this colour! I REALLY hope they are an option for on-site guests and that they will be available by December 24th (my due date to choose magic bands!) That would be an amazing Christmas surprise! :)

    We have until February 8 to customize our bands. If this becomes an option, I'm going to be hard pressed to choose between blush and bashful...I mean, pink and pink.

    I really like this colour but not enough to pay extra for it. If it's a free option I'll be all over it but if not I'll stick with purple!

    Target uses the name Millennial Pink in their recent Christmas commercial. Not to mention Rose Gold which made me think of the Rose Gold Minnie ears.

    Does anyone know how to go about purchasing these? It's supposed to be released today. I checked the shop Disney parks app, and nothing. I love the color, So I can justify paying the $13, but not willing to shell out ridiculous amounts of money on ebay when it sells out by the end of the day :rolleyes2

    I checked over the weekend just to see if they showed up early. Then checked again this morning at 6:30 and nothing at shopdisney or the app. I am hoping Disney releases them to order through the app or online before my trip in May. I wouldn't normally spend money on a magic band, but I really would like to have this color.
