    Can I link my Magic Band to my Disneyland Account?

    Hi there, Debbie!

    Welcome to planDisney, it's great to have you here! It sounds like you may have visited Walt Disney World Resort recently and want to get some extra magical miles out of your bands. I'm happy to help you figure out if that will work at the Disneyland Resort!

    The Walt Disney World Resort has used several versions of MagicBand in the last few years. However, the only version that is compatible with the Disneyland Mobile App is the most current one, known as MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort. Is your band rechargeable? If so, it's a MagicBand+ and you are welcome to use it at Disneyland Park and around the resort. Older versions of the bands will not work at the Disneyland Resort.

    If you already have a MagicBand+ then you can download the Disneyland Mobile App and link it to your account by opening the menu on the app and choosing "MagicBand+" then tapping the "+" sign in the top right corner to add a new band. If your phone also has the My Disney Experience App from Walt Disney World Resort make sure that you have that app totally closed when you're using the Disneyland Mobile App. Phones can only handle so much pixie dust at a time!

    If you discover that your band is one of the older versions then you can order a new one from shopDisney online or you can purchase a new one when you arrive at the parks. There are some unique designs at the parks that you can't get online!

    I hope this info helps you figure out your band and get prepared for a visit to the Disneyland Resort soon, Debbie! If you have more questions about attractions, dining reservations, or anything else, just send me a note and I'll be back to help as quickly as I can!

    Keep moving forward!
