    My Disney vacation is the last week of October. Will my MagicBand+ work the full week or only after the 26th?

    Welcome to planDisney, Amy!

    It's not long now until you'll be hopping on a magic carpet ride and flying to a whole new world. In the words of Jasmine, "It's all so magical!" Mickey and his pals can't wait for you to arrive at the Disneyland Resort.

    It's so great that you've got a MagicBand+. Back in May, I was able to attend a media event and try out the new MagicBand+. It made me so excited to see these in the theme parks. I'm so glad they're finally about to arrive at the Disneyland Resort. 

    Guests will be able to use MagicBand+ to:
    - Connect their theme park ticket or Magic Key pass for an easy way to enter the theme parks (valid park admission and reservation required, of course!).
    - Check-in at Lightning Lane entrances (again, you'll require a separate valid Lightning Lane entry)
    - Link Disney PhotoPass photos.
    - Experience immersive elements like dancing lights and haptic vibrations during “World of Color,”
    “Fantasmic!” and select nighttime spectaculars!
    - Experience the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters interactive quest.

    Unfortunately, Amy, MagicBand+ is not launching until October 26. Therefore, you won't be able to use these awesome features until then. I know that's not the news you wanted to hear. However, hopefully, it'll give you something to look forward to during your trip.

    Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney, Amy. Have a magical trip.
