    Hi there! How do I link a Disney magic band to my existing reservations? They are not the magic band+…

    Hello there Ashlea, and thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question!

    At this time, only MagicBand+ is supported at the Disneyland Resort.  MagicBand and MagicBand 2 are not supported at this time and cannot be linked to the Disneyland app.  Do not fret though Ashlea, because you have options!  

    Your first option is to use your mobile phone and download the Disneyland app.  You'll have access to your theme park tickets to scan into the parks, you can purchase Disney Genie+ Service for access to Lightning Lane selections, as well as mobile order food at quick service dining locations.  I used my phone for many years, and it worked just fine.  I highly recommend packing an extra portable phone charger too!

    The other option would be to purchase a MagicBand+ when you arrive to the Disneyland Resort, and then you'll be able to pair it to your Disneyland app.  There are several places to purchase a MagicBand+, but my favorite is the World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District.  Not only will they have a great selection, but they have so many other fun souvenirs and merchandise to browse through as well!  We love to do our souvenir shopping on a non-park day, and then easily bring all of our goodies back to our hotel room and not have to carry them around the parks.  

    I hope this information was helpful for your upcoming trip Ashlea, I'm wishing you and your family a magical trip!
