    is Disneyland's magicband+ the same as Walt Disney World's? What are the differences

    Hiya Ken. Thanks for reaching out to us here at planDisney again to get the answer to your question. We love repeat customers, so keep those questions coming!

    I just returned from the Disneyland Resort and guess what I used the entire time? That's right, a MagicBand+ that I had purchased and used previously at the Walt Disney World Resort. It's so exciting that MagicBand technology has made its way to the Disneyland Resort. I love that it interacted with certain shows and attractions, especially in Avengers Campus. I also love the convenience of being able to tap into the parks with it and redeem the Lightning Lanes that I have purchased. It's a game changer and it just elevates the experience!

    The MagicBand+ accessory at the Disneyland Resort is the same as the MagicBand+ accessory at the Walt Disney World Resort. While there are often exclusive designs available at each resort, they use the same technology and can be used at both resorts. Just make sure that you have the band linked and paired with the app for the resort at which you want to use it: the My Disneyland mobile app for the Disneyland Resort or the My Disney Experience mobile app for the Walt Disney World Resort. Just keep in mind that the standard version of MagicBand (sometimes referred to as MagicBand 2) cannot be used at the Disneyland Resort. At this time, this version can only be used at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Ken, there are so many wonderful designs to choose from, both at the merchandise locations at the resort and on shopDisney. You're bound to find something that speaks to you! For me, I just have to get my hands on the MagicBand+ themed to Wish. I cannot get enough of that movie!

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out directly to me.

    Just keep wishing,
