    I have the magic band plus and I heard they can be used at Disneyland. how does that work?

    Hiya, Michelle!

    Welcome back to planDisney. It’s a pleasure to again offer information and advice to help make your visits to the Disney Parks as magical as possible.

    Yes! As a technology geek, I’m really excited about the release of the new MagicBand+ earlier this year. I purchased a new MagicBand+ during a stay at the Walt Disney World Resort in the Summer. I was able to take that same band with me on a family trip to the Disneyland Resort later in the Fall. I was impressed with how easy it was to use my MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort too!

    To start, you might have noticed a QR code printed underneath your MagicBand+. If you scan that code with your mobile phone, it should allow you to link to this MagicBand+ setup page. There, you’ll find links to help set up your MagicBand+ for either the Walt Disney World My Disney Experience app or the Disneyland mobile app. The Link a Band button for the Disneyland app will automatically open the app on your phone. From there, tap on the “Link a MagicBand+” Bring your band near your phone and tap the “Open Scanner to Link” button. Then, follow the on-screen prompts to finish the process of linking your band to your Disneyland Resort account.

    Even if your band is already linked to a different account or user at the Walt Disney World Resort, you can link your band to up to one Disneyland Resort account. Once your band is linked to your Disneyland account, choose the theme park admission you would like to associate with that band. You can even change the associated theme park ticket or Magic Key pass later. This comes in handy when my daughter wants to use my Grogru band when she plays Batuu Bounty Hunters. We can simply swap bands on our wrists and in the app so that we are properly linked to the correct theme park admission still.

    Tony’s Tip: Be sure to power on your MagicBand+ during your visit. You may already be aware of the immersive interactivity of the bands during nighttime spectaculars. But there are also many other surprises sprinkled throughout the Disneyland Resort for MagicBand+ wearers. So far, my favorite attraction experiences with my MagicBand+ are on Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! and Haunted Mansion.

    Have a magical time at The Happiest Place on Earth, Michelle!
