    How do we buy a magicband for our trip to Disneyland in May 2024? We visited Disneyworld 5 years ago and still have our old magicbands--can we use these?? If not-can we get magicbands for our one day visit in May...can we buy meals on them?

    Welcome to planDisney, Ahna!

    I'm so thrilled about your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort! You are arriving during the Season of the Force and the return of Pixar Fest. These are two amazing events coming to the resort this year. I can't wait for you to experience it!

    While MagicBand+ is not necessary, it will certainly enhance your visit to the Theme Parks. You can purchase your MagicBand+ in advance of your trip online at Disney Store. It is also possible to buy them in person on the day of your visit at select stores throughout the resort. Please note that at this time only MagicBand+ is supported at the Disneyland Resort. MagicBand and MagicBand 2 will not be functional.

    There are many things you can do with the MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort:

    MagicBand+ will also glow with color and haptic vibrations during select nighttime spectaculars, such as World of Color - ONE. You can also use your MagicBand+ to play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters via the Play Disney Parks App. At this time, you cannot use the MagicBand+ to unlock your Disney Resort Room or charge purchases to your room.

    Ahna, don't forget that you can also use the Disneyland App to enter the parks, scan in at Lighting Lanes, check attraction wait times, and so much more. 

    I hope this information helps, Ahna. I wish you the happiest visit to The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Your Pal,
