    How do I link my hotel reservation to my magic band?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Jackie and thanks for stopping by. I'm delighted to help with your question.

    It sounds like you're making preparations for your magical visit to the Disneyland Resort and I love to hear that a MagicBand(+) is part of that. So let's dive in and make sure you're all set.

    First, you will want to make sure that you have a MagicBand+ as this is the only model that is currently supported at the Disneyland Resort. Next, make sure that you've linked all of your plans (hotel reservations and theme park tickets) to your Disney account. You can easily do this in the Disneyland app by tapping the "☰" icon to open the menu and then tapping "My Hotel Reservation" to link your hotel and "Tickets and Passes" to link your theme park tickets.

    The next step is linking your MagicBand+ to your account. From the same menu just accessed, you will tap on the "MagicBand+" tile followed by the "+" in the upper right corner. That's all there is to it! You're ready to use your MagicBand+ for your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. Keep in mind that the features of the MagicBand+ are a little different at the Disneyland Resort than they are at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    At the Disneyland Resort, you can use your MagicBand+ to scan into the theme parks for entrance, link your Disney PhotoPass photos, check in at Lightning Lane entrances and enhance your overall park experience with your MagicBand+ interacting with nighttime spectaculars and select attractions. Right now, as part of the Disney100 Celebration, there are medallions throughout the resort that you can interact with. Oh, and I can't forget about tracking down bounties in Batuu. This is one of my favorite features of the MagicBand+ that I like to use when wandering around the Black Spire Outpost. While you won't be able to use your MagicBand+ to unlock your hotel room door, you can use the Disneyland app to do this

    Jackie, I hope this is helpful and helps you check one additional item off your planning list for your upcoming visit. Please come back and share any other questions you may have as you continue your preparations. Here's wishing you a magical stay!
