    If or when Disneyland will start using magicbands?

    Hi there, Myron!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your great question. Like you, I also love Magic Bands at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. These are a convenient way to have park tickets, a credit card, and your room key all on one handy bracelet. While the Disneyland Resort in California does not currently have plans to utilize Magic Bands, there are still some really neat and convenient digital resources at this Resort.

    Once you download the official Disneyland app, you will have the ability to use your phone as your park ticket, and you can make digital Disney FASTPASS selections with Disney MaxPass. I personally find this even more convenient than a Magic Band since my phone is always on-hand. You can even view and download your Disney PhotoPass photos right from the Disneyland app. My favorite new feature of the Disneyland app is the ability to mobile order and pay for food from select Quick Service Restaurants in both parks. Not only is this more convenient than grabbing my wallet, but it also saves me time when I normally would be waiting in a line for food. 

    I also suggest downloading the new Play Disney Parks app. This fun app adds even more magic to your trip when riding your favorite attractions or waiting in attraction lines. We had so much fun using this app in the queue for Space Mountain.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions!
