    I am a current passholder at Disneyworld. I use my Disney experience app along with my magicband+ while at the park. I am going to Disneyland in July and would like to link my tickets to my app and magicband+. Do I need a different app for Disneyland?

    Hiya Tabitha,

    Welcome to planDisney! The great thing about planDisney is that we are Guests who help Guests such as yourself. That means you benefit from our experience and knowledge to help you better plan your vacations! As a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder who is currently planning a family vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am in the midst of navigating your exact scenario right now; I’m thrilled to share my information with you!

    First things first, just like the My Disney Experience mobile app at Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort also has its own app, the Disneyland mobile app. Through the Disneyland mobile app, you can link your Theme Park tickets, manage your plans, make advanced dining reservations, access virtual queues, and do almost everything with the My Disney Experience mobile app! When I signed up for my Disneyland account, I used the same username for both My Disney Experience and Disneyland Resort, so I could more easily log into both without remembering different log-ins. Another perk of doing that is that I can link my MagicBand+ to both my Walt Disney World account and Disneyland accounts. A MagicBand+ can only be linked to one username and password at once, so if you have two different log-ins, you will automatically unlink your MagicBand+ from your My Disney Experience account once you link it to your Disneyland app. To link your MagicBand+ for use at Disneyland, you can scan the QR code on the back of the MagicBand+ and follow the prompts to help connect your band to the Disneyland app for use. If your mobile device is being anti-QR code like mine was the day I tried, you can also open the Disneyland app, select the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner and select MagicBand+ from the menu. Once there, you can add a MagicBand+ either by scanning using your camera, using Bluetooth, or typing in the ID manually. Once your Theme Park tickets and MagicBand+ are linked in the app, you should have no issues using the MagicBand+ for park entry during your visit!

    I hope this was helpful, Tabitha! As you continue planning your trip to California, please come back and see us if you need anything else! As I mentioned, I am also a Walt Disney World girl visiting Disneyland this summer, so I’ve been head-first in research for months. I’d be happy to help you make sure this visit is just as magical as one to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
