Take My Money, Mickey? MagicBand watch sliders coming soon

Don't plan on taking my money yet, Mickey. Not this time.

Disney will introduce Magic Band sliders with a watch component — something I've been looking for since the MagicBand first debuted and, according to the Disney Parks Blog, one of their "more popularly requested accessories."

Later this year, two timepieces will debut: a Minnie Mouse with an analog watch face, and a plain slider with a digital display.

The Minnie Mouse face is cute, but Disney needs to take another crack at the other one. It's big and clunky, and it looks like it was designed in the '70s. And because you can't cover the Mickey Mouse icon on the MagicBand, you have to put the slide on the side, which is going to be awkward.

I hope they'll keep trying to master the watch accessory — and make it about one-third the size of what you see here.
