    Are the magic bands universal? Can they be used at both Walt Disney world resort and California?

    Hi there, Susan!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    For years now, I've loved the convenience of using my MagicBand at Walt Disney World Resort, so I was really excited when I heard that MagicBand+ was coming to Disneyland Resort.  Currently, MagicBand+ can be used at Disneyland Resort to enter the theme parks (with valid park admission and reservations), and when you purchase Disney Genie+ service, you can also use MagicBand+ to check in at Lightning Lane entrances.  MagicBand+ can also be used to link your Disney PhotoPass pictures to your account and for several enhanced and interactive experiences throughout the Disneyland Resort theme parks.

    While older versions of Walt Disney World Resort's MagicBands cannot be used at Disneyland Resort, I'm happy to tell you that MagicBand+ works at both resorts.  If you'd like to use the same MagicBand+ on both coasts, you may do so.  However, with so many cute designs available to purchase, it's certainly tempting to buy a new MagicBand+ for every vacation!  

    Susan, if you have any other questions about your next Disney vacation, please don't hesitate to ask.  My fellow panelists and I are all ears!  See ya real soon!
