    Will magic bands from Disney World work at Disneyland?

    Hey howdy hey, Jocelyn!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping over with your question about Disney bands ("MagicBands"). It sounds like you're considering a trip to The Happiest Place on Earth - how exciting! Jocelyn, I'm happy to help you understand how Disney bands work at both the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. You've got a friend in me!

    I'm happy to inform you that the newest version of Disney band ("MagicBand+") is compatible for use at both the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, Jocelyn! Previous versions of Disney band ("MagicBand" and/or "MagicBand 2.0") are currently only compatible for use at the Walt Disney World Resort. Just like at The Most Magical Place on Earth, you'll experience special interactive moments in the Disneyland Resort theme parks with your Disney band. If you don't have a Disney band yet, no worries, Jocelyn! You'll be able to purchase Disney bands at many retail locations throughout the Disneyland Resort. You can also order Disney bands on shopDisney for shipping to your home address ahead of your visit! Once you obtain a compatible Disney band, I encourage you to link it to your account using the Disneyland Resort mobile app, pair it to your mobile device, and fully charge your band before you hit the theme parks.

    Did you know that you can also use your mobile device similarly to how a Disney band works? Guests who download the Disneyland Resort mobile app can use their devices to unlock the door to their Disneyland Resort hotel rooms! The Disneyland Resort mobile app will also give you access to tools that'll help you make the most of your time in the theme parks, like mobile food and beverage ordering and Disney Genie+ service.

    Jocelyn, there's no better time to visit The Happiest Place on Earth than right now. Yee-haw! The Disney100 Celebration at Disneyland Resort is in full swing, and a newly-reimagined Mickey's Toontown has recently reopened. I'm wishing you a most memorable experience at the Disneyland Resort! If you have any additional planning questions, please stop back by planDisney again anytime. We're here to help you make magical memories!

    To infinity and beyond,
