    What is the magic band?

    Hello Barbara!

    I was excited because the Disney Parks Blog announced that MagicBand+ would come to the Disneyland Resort starting on October 26th, 2022. I have purchased two MagicBand+ from shopDisney, and I love them. I can't wait to use them at the Disneyland Resort! 

    MagicBand+, when linked to the Disneyland Mobile App with a valid ticket and theme park reservation, can be used for entry into a theme park or Lightening Lane if the Disney Genie+ Service is purchased. Also, if you are staying at a Disneyland Resort, the MagicBand+ can give entry into your room. The new MagicBand+ will do everything that a MagicBand does and more! Some exciting new features of the MagicBand+ include customizable color-changing lights, haptic vibrations that bring experiences to life, and gesture recognition. If you currently do not own a MagicBand+, you can purchase a MagicBand+ before your Disneyland Resort vacation from shopDisney and have it shipped to your house in preparation for your Disneyland Resort vacation! If you purchase from shopDisney, ensure that it is the new MagicBand+, not the original Walt Disney World MagicBand or the MagicBand 2, which are incompatible with the Disneyland System. The great news is that the MagicBand+ is rechargeable via a USB charging cord (included with the MagicBand+), and the MagicBand+ will work at the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I hope that your Disneyland Resort vacation is incredible!
