    i booked a disneyland trip to california in may and we are staying at the disneyland hotel for the week so i want to know if i can purchase a magic band plus before arrival on my disney experience.im from québec canada.

    Hello there, Genevieve! Welcome to planDisney. We are excited to hear you are planning to visit The Happiest Place on Earth next spring!

    The Disneyland Hotel is my favorite Disneyland Resort Hotel and I am so excited for you to experience it yourself. I just love all of the photos and Disney memorabilia and artifacts sprinkled throughout the lobbies of the towers. I will never forget how excited my children were over those magical headboards! If you want to get MagicBand+ devices for your trip ahead of time you can purchase them from shopDisney. Just be sure that you are purchasing MagicBand+ and not MagicBand, as only MagicBand+ will work at Disneyland Resort. If you already have any MagicBand+ devices from a Walt Disney World Resort visit, they will work at Disneyland Resort as well.

    Once you have purchased your tickets, you will want to make sure that you make theme park ticket reservations for each day. The next step would be for you to link your MagicBand+ devices. At Disneyland Resort, a MagicBand+ is actually assigned to a ticket, not an account or profile like Walt Disney World Resort. Then you will be ready to tap right into your Lightning Lanes or collect credits for your bounty-hunting efforts on Batuu.

    Genevieve, I hope you are enjoying all the planning for your upcoming visit. Please come back and visit us again with any other questions!

Well hello friend! I'm Carrie, a work-from-home mama and military wife who currently calls sunny San Diego home. We love that we are close enough to Disneyland Resort to make a last-minute trip to see the Mouse quite frequently. You'll find us in the parks braving drops and coasters to work up our appetite to take as many snack breaks as we can fit in! I love helping my friends plan memorable trips to Disneyland Resort and can't wait to help you too! Learn More About Carrie
