    Can I use a disneyworld band at disneyland?

    Hey there, Alyssa, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for bringing your question to us and it would be my pleasure to assist you! I'm a big tech geek, so I was thrilled when they brought MagicBand+ functionality to the Disneyland Resort in 2022. Not all MagicBands work at the Disneyland Resort, however, so here are the details that you should know.

    Only MagicBand+ is supported at the Disneyland Resort currently. A MagicBand that was used at the Walt Disney World Resort will function at the Disneyland Resort as long as it is a MagicBand+. Older types of Bands will not work, so it's important to know what kind you have. When I transferred my MagicBand+ over to my Disneyland ticket, I found that I had to un-attach it from my Walt Disney World account first. Each MagicBand+ may only be attached to one MyDisney account and one ticket at a time. 

    You'll find that it's way more convenient to navigate the Disneyland Resort with a MagicBand+. I particularly love the haptic feedback and lights that appear at certain locations and during nighttime spectaculars. It's a nice little sprinkle of magic to brighten your day! And you'll be visiting during Pixar Fest, a Resort wide celebration of all things Pixar! I hope you've brushed up on your Pixar trivia because Inside Out 2 is currently taking the box office by storm!

    Alyssa, I hope that this was helpful for you. If you need to shop for a MagicBand+ after arriving at the Resort, just hit up these locations. And don't hesitate to come on back if you have any more questions. We're always happy to help!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
