    We have December tickets for Disneyland Adventure in California. Are they using MagicBand + in California parks now?

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, Michael!

    How delighted you must be about your upcoming visit to Disneyland Resort during the Holidays, it is my favorite time of year! When the official Disney Parks Blog announced the arrival of the MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort, many Guests were excited to hear that the device could be used to enhance their visit with the easy-to-use features which also add greater convenience.

    Michael, after you select your preferred style of MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort you will discover methods of accessing the magic, from using the device to enter the theme parks when paired with valid theme park admission, to turning many interactive moments into lifelong memories, such as having the ability to link to your Disney PhotoPass and tapping into your purchased Disney Genie+ service Lightning Lane entrances. As well, you will have the opportunity to engage in interactive experiences throughout the theme parks with special haptic vibrations and glow features that are paired with select Disneyland Resort nighttime experiences such as the World of Color, and Fantasmic! for example, doesn’t that sound exciting?

    At this time, you will be able to purchase your MagicBand+ at select stores at the Downtown Disney District, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, Disneyland Resort Hotels, and through shopDisney online.

    Michael, pairing will be easy to do by simply powering on the device using the button at the back and tapping the band to your mobile device. From that point, you will be prompted to open, sign in or download the Disneyland App from which you will receive instructions to link the band to your Disney account and then assign it to your previously linked theme park ticket or pass. Once these steps are completed, the band will be paired to your mobile device.

    Once you purchase your MagicBand+ look for the charging USB cable tucked into the box which you can use repeatedly. I like to charge my MagicBand+ overnight and find that the charge holds steady throughout the day. And best of all, your MagicBand+ device is waterproof!

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Michael, it was my pleasure helping and I wish you a joyous holiday at the Disneyland Resort!
