    Hiya Martina,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for submitting your question to us.

    I’m so excited about your upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort! You’ll be visiting during Pixar Fest, a celebration of the Pixar Studios films we know and love. Since you still have a few weeks before your visit, check out the Food Guide to Pixar Fest and decide which (or all!) treats you’ll partake in during your visit!

    MagicBand+ is available for use at the Disneyland Resort! I love the ease it brings, from scanning into my Disneyland Resort Hotel room to scanning my lightning lanes selected from Disney Genie+. MagicBand+ is available online at the Disney Store before your visit or at several locations in the parks with various designs to suit whatever outfits you wear! I love to match my MagicBand+ to the outfit I’m wearing that day. So go ahead and purchase your MagicBand+ ahead of your visit! 

    Once you arrive in California, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app! In the app, you can access your theme park tickets, Disney Genie+, and link to MagicBand+! To link your MagicBand+, go into the app and click the (≡) on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. Then scroll down to “MagicBand+” and select. At the top right-hand side, you’ll see a (+) to “Link to Account”. Follow the step-by-step instructions to pair your MagicBand+ to your Disney account. Once paired and connected to your account, you can use your MagicBand+ for park entry! And don’t worry - you can still access your tickets via your phone through the Disneyland app, screenshots, email, or however you also access your tickets! 

    If you have other questions about the Disneyland Resort, remember - you’ve got a friend in me!
