    Can I still use my magic band 2 at Disneyland?

    Hi there, Loreto, and welcome to planDisney!

    We appreciate you bringing your MagicBand question to us. I love technology and whenever I hear about a new device that improves quality of life and adds fun to our Park visits, I'm all on board!

    Walt Disney World Resort has been enjoying MagicBands for longer than the Disneyland Resort and I was very envious of all the benefits they had. So I was understandably very excited when the Disney Parks Blog announced that they were bringing MagicBand+ functionality to Disneyland Resort! Unfortunately, only the MagicBand+ is supported at this time, which means that older versions like the MagicBand 2 will not work at the Disneyland Resort. 

    If you'd like to pick up a MagicBand+ prior to your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, then I would recommend taking a look at the selection on They've got a variety of different Bands to suit every kind of taste. MagicBand+ may also be purchased once on property at these locations. Once you find one you like, just follow the easy set-up instructions to link them to your account and then assign a ticket to it! 

    The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival is happening over your visit! It's a fan favorite event and you can go around the Park sampling some tasty dishes curated by the Disney chefs. Take a look at the Foodie Guide and keep an eye out for the Carbonara Garlic Mac & Cheese featuring Nueske’s Peppered Bacon and Mickey-shaped Macaron made with SNICKERS bar pieces, which have been my favorites! 

    Loreto, I'm excited for your trip to arrive so you can experience the Disneyland Resort! I love welcoming Guests from the East Coast who are veterans of Walt Disney World. This was Walt's original Park and we can see his touches in its design and layout. I hope you have a magical time on your vacation and please reach out again if you have more questions. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    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
