Crazy question

This is either nuts, or genius, you guys can be the judges, lol! I’m sure a lot of people would love to wear their old magic bands in their everyday lives, and I was thinking it’d be super cool if you could pop the middle part out and stick a watch face in there. Is that already a thing?

Not that I’m aware of, but you can remove the middle disk and put it into a fob-like thing Disney sells if you dislike something on your wrist.

Reportedly, a tiny screwdriver which enables switching the mid-section comes with the fob.

No reason why you couldn’t save the bracelet portion and make a two-tone band when getting another color in future.

Those are the only variations I’ve heard of.

And there are very cool designs available to hold the puck portion for those who hate things on their wrists however I have never seen a watch portion. I purchased a monorail one for myself, a Mickey head for my son, Eeyore for my mom and DH had a retro 20,000 leagues inspired piece. Each magic band buddy came with a ring, a retractable clip as well as a carabiner. I absolutely loved them.

Oh wow, what a great idea! I quite often wear a Magic Band just as a fashion accessory, with the colour themed to whatever I'm wearing for the day, but it would be brilliant to be able to put a watch on there. I went onto eBay and found loads of "snap watches" really cheaply - I am definitely doing this, I found a Baymax watch - I love that character!

Love this idea. I am still a daily watch wearer and at Disney I end up doing the ever fashionable watch and magic band on the same wrist.

Since the iphone now can be used to open resort doors, I would hope that the apple watch will be able to soon as well. If that happens, I would like to see them also come out with special watch bands that look similar to magic bands. I have really enjoyed adding my disney photopass photos to my apple watch backgrounds. Every time I look at my watch I am reminded of my disney trips.

I have tried and my annual pass slider fits on my apple watch band just fine.
