    Does Disneyland use the Magic Bands like Disney World? I bought our tickets online and cannot find a way to link to my account or magic bands. It will be our first visit to Disneyland.

    Hello, Tracy! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited that you will soon be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth for the first time! 

    The Disneyland Resort does not use MagicBands like the Walt Disney World Resort. Instead, your digital tools are all encompassed in the Disneyland app which is similar to the My Disney Experience app that you are probably familiar with. If you selected eTicket when you purchased your tickets online, you should have received ticket vouchers by email. You can link these ticket vouchers (or any hard copy tickets) to your Disneyland app by scanning the barcode or by manually entering the ticket ID number. Once you log into the app, tap “My Tickets” and then tap “Link Tickets & Passes.” As you link your tickets, be sure to add a name to each one so you can keep them organized. When you arrive at the park gates, you can either show your ticket vouchers or the digital tickets in your app to gain entry. You will also be given a paper ticket at this time that you can use as well.

    If you’ll be using Disney MaxPass, linking your tickets to the app will be the first step you need to complete. So, doing this beforehand will save you a bit of time. You can also link your tickets to multiple apps if there are other people in your party who will want to manage the tickets or FASTPASSES via MaxPass.  

    I hope this helps clarify things a bit. Please stop by again if you have any other questions!
