    Are magic band a good thing to have? We have some from when we went to Disney World last year and was thinking about bringing them with for Disneyland.

    Hi Cheri! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by and asking this great question.

    A MagicBand+ is one of my favorite accessories to wear when visiting Disney Parks. You can definitely use them at the Disneyland Resort, provided they are the MagicBand+ model. Any other MagicBand models aren't compatible at Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park. I love the ease and convenience of being able to easily scan at the park entrances. I also find it helpful to wear one when we have purchased and are using Disney Genie+ Service and Individual Lighting Lanes. My favorite way to use a MagicBand+ is when our family is having our photos taken by a Disney PhotoPass photographer. 

    Before you arrive, you will need to set up and link the MagicBand+ for each person in your travel party, using the Disneyland Mobile App. You can also manage multiple bands and customize them during the setup process. A tip I have for you is to make sure you bring the chargers for each MagicBand+ so everyone is all charged and set to use them.

    I'm wishing you a magical vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth and hope it's filled with special memories! When you're ready to plan another Disney Parks vacation, please visit us again at planDisney. You've got a friend in us, and we would love to help!

    See ya real soon!
