    I have a Magic Band+ which I recently used on a trip to WDW in Florida. We are now headed to DLR in California and I'm unable to add the same Magic Band+ to my Disneyland app. Do I need to deactivate/ delete it from my Disney World app first?

    Greetings to you, Dana!

    Welcome to planDisney and we appreciate you coming by! I loved seeing your question because I went through the exact same situation. Disney announced that they would be adding MagicBand+ functionality to the Disneyland Resort right before my last trip to the Walt Disney World Resort last year, so I decided to order one since I could now use it on both coasts! When I took it home and tried to link it to my Disneyland ticket, there was a learning curve for me to successfully attach it, so I'd be happy to explain what I did.

    MagicBand+ can only be linked to one ticket on one account at a time. I found that I did indeed have to unlink and unpair my MagicBand+ from the My Disney Experience App before I was able to link it to my ticket within the Disneyland Mobile App using the standard linking instructions. Once I did that, it's worked smoothly ever since! Remember that it is attached to only one ticket at a time, so it will need to be re-linked if you want to use it for your Disneyland Park Day Pass and then use it for a Disneyland After Dark event, like Oogie Boogie Bash, for instance.

    I've really enjoyed being able to use my MagicBand+ to scan into the Parks, easily redeem Lightning Lanes and link Disney PhotoPass pictures. I'm hoping that the Disneyland Resort will eventually get the full feature suite for MagicBand+ that they enjoy at the Walt Disney World Resort. The designs that they're releasing are so cool, especially the ones for the Disney100 Celebration! 

    Dana, I hope that this was helpful for you and that you are able to link your MagicBand+ successfully. If you need anything further from us, please reach out again anytime. You're always welcome here 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
