    Do you have to be a Magic Key member to use new Magic Bands + at Disneyland Anaheim, with the words "Magic Key" on them ?

    Hiya Cheryl!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for coming to us with your question! I love that you're asking about MagicBand+. They're a wonderful new technology that allows us to interact with the Parks in new ways that make it so much more convenient to get around! I also love the haptic feedback with certain attractions and the new Dazzling Interactions for the Disney100 Celebration too!

    There are so many different designs for the MagicBand+ and they're constantly introducing new tempting patterns. The electronic features of the MagicBand+ are all identical and they interact with the Parks in the same way. The only differences are therefore cosmetic. They are not used as a form of identification, so you may indeed use a MagicBand+ that has the "Magic Key" moniker on it even though you are not a Magic Key Holder. I assure you that no one will want to verify that you own a Magic Key if they see you wearing it. In order to actually purchase one, however, a Cast Member might ask to see your Magic Key, so keep that in mind.

    Have you ever worn your MagicBand+ while in the queue for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure or while exiting the Haunted Mansion? There's also haptic feedback during certain nighttime spectaculars as well! I love that they're adding features to the MagicBand+ all the time!

    Cheryl, I hope that answers your question. If you need anything further, please don't hesitate to visit us again anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney and you've got a friend in us! Until next time!

    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
