    Hello, Am I able to use a MagicKey Magic band+ even if I don't have a magic key?

    Hey there, Leah, and welcome back to planDisney!

    We're so glad to see you back here again! We'd be happy to help you further prepare for your visit to the Disneyland Resort as the date approaches. And one way to add convenience to your visit would be to bring along a MagicBand+! I was so excited when I heard last year that MagicBand+ functionality was going to be introduced at the Disneyland Resort. Although we don't have as many features as our friends over at Walt Disney World Resort, it still adds a host of convenient ways to navigate the Parks.

    There are so many different MagicBand+ designs that I've seen guests collect and accessorize them based on their outfit for the day. Although the wristband and the bands themselves have many different designs to them, the actual electronic features are identical for every MagicBand+. The only unique thing about the Magic Key MagicBand+ is the design, so feel free to use the band even though you are not a Magic Key Holder. I assure you that no one will ask to verify that you are a Magic Key Holder during your visit! 

    Before using it, you'll have to link the MagicBand+ to your ticket. Just follow the setup instructions after downloading the Disneyland Mobile App and you'll be on your way to a hassle-free trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! Just remember that each MagicBand+ can only be linked to one account and one ticket at a time. I find it so much more convenient to just show my MagicBand+ when entering the Parks, redeeming Lightning Lanes, and linking Disney PhotoPass photos as opposed to pulling out my phone every time. And don't forget the addition of Dazzling Interactions with the Disney100 Celebration! But I think my favorite haptic feedback feature occurs when you exit the Haunted Mansion, which I highly recommend you try!

    Leah, I hope that was helpful and that you have a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth! Please feel free to return again if you need anything further. You're always welcome at planDisney. Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
