    We are coming to Disneyland in May. The two of us in my party have magic bands (not magic bands +) from Disney World last year. Are we able to use these?

    Hiya Rachel! 

    On behalf of all of us at planDisney, welcome! We're so glad that you came to us with your question. I'm excited for you to be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth next month! 

    At this time, only the MagicBand+ is supported by the Disneyland Resort. The Disney Parks Blog published an article detailing the functionality of the MagicBand+ when it debuted last year. If you do choose to upgrade to a MagicBand+, the good news is that you may use it at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World! There are so many cool designs from which to choose on shopdisney.com, or you may purchase them at these locations when you arrive. There are even designs which are exclusive to the Disneyland Resort!

    I love the convenience of having a MagicBand+ during my visits to the Parks. You don't absolutely need one to visit, but it does streamline things. I enjoy using it to scan into the Parks and for redeeming Lightning Lanes. I love the enhanced haptic feedback on certain attractions and during nighttime spectaculars. Plus, you'll get to participate in Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters while in Galaxy's Edge! There are also special Disney100 statues and medallions with which you can interact using a MagicBand+. 

    Rachel, I hope you have a fantastic visit to the Disneyland Resort and please let us know if we can be of further assistance with your planning questions! We'd love to help you have a truly magical time out here!

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
