    How do the magic bands work for Disneyland?

    Hi, Mari! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Excellent question! MagicBand+ launched at the Happiest Place on Earth in October of last year. And in my opinion, it has been a valuable addition to the Guest experience. 

    My favorite features of the MagicBand+ are the ability to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks, check in at Lightning Lane entrances, and link PhotoPass pictures to your Disney account.

    Tip: I recommend purchasing Disney Genie+ to maximize your MagicBand+ experience. 

    MagicBand+ will also synchronize with illuminations and pulses with select nighttime spectaculars, such as "Fantasmic!" and "World of Color." It will also sync with the upcoming Disney100 Celebration nighttime spectaculars!

    Are you a Star Wars fan? You can use your MagicBand+ to play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters. This interactive game transforms you into a bounty hunter, and your MagicBand+ will help you find the bounty assigned to you.

    If you are interested in purchasing MagicBand+ before your trip, you can do so online at ShopDisney or various stores across the Disneyland Resort. Keep in mind that at this time, only MagicBand+ is supported at the resort.

    This is just the beginning of MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort. So much more is expected to come in the future! Mari, if you have more questions, come back and visit us. We love to help!

    Your Pal,
