As part of the new style, Disney has introduced an interchangeable inner “puck” in every MagicBand 2.0. In addition to their use in MagicBands, Disney has debuted accessories that the puck can be installed in called MagicKeepers. The first MagicKeeper has popped up at Animal Kingdom and we’ve got a look at the accessory itself and the installation process. It retails for $12.99.

In the package is the MagicKeeper, a screwdriver, and two screws.

The back of the MagicKeeper pops open (with some effort), allowing you to install the puck found in your MagicBand.

The MagicKeeper comes with screws, so I would keep the screws in the MagicBand with that specific MagicBand if you want to move the puck back.

Here are a look at the other MagicKeepers announced. Currently only the Mickey and Minnie MagicKeepers are available. We weren’t able to find the one with the carabiner.

We’ll be using it over the next few days to try and rate its usefulness, but it’s hard to imagine anything more convenient than a MagicBand.

    I don’t think they look any more convenient than the magic band, necessarily, but I wear my pin lanyard 99% of the time and am looking forward to adding a magic keeper to it since I never sprung for a “medallion” or whatever the things that hang at the end of the lanyard are called. Thanks so much for the early look at these!

    To me, this is great. We have a kid on the autism spectrum who also has other special needs that require us to be in the hospital pretty often and wearing ANYTHING on his wrist is problematic because it reminds him of the bands he has to wear at the hospital. Wearing this around his neck would allay all of that and the easier removability would allow us to go and get return times for the DAS without him having a meltdown since he doesn’t understand we can’t ride the rides right away. While I’m sure we’re a small percentage of the people who go, its a nice option to have and something we’ll definitely use. Plus no tan line!
