    Can I use my magicband from disneyworld 2023 for disneyland ? 

    Hey there, Alana!

    Welcome to planDisney, it sounds like you're in for a magical year! I'd love to help you get ready to visit the Disneyland Resort

    While the Walt Disney World Resort has had several versions of MagicBands, the only type that will also work at Disneyland is MagicBand+. MagicBand+ has a few distinctive features, like lights and haptic responses, but the simplest indicator that it's a MagicBand+ is that it is rechargeable. If your bands come with chargers, then you know you'll be able to use them at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts! 

    My family loves using MagicBand+ to easily enter the parks, tap into Lightning Lane queues, link pictures from Disney PhotoPass photographers, and more! During nighttime spectaculars the bands come alive with matching lights and haptic responses, it's really fun to feel like you're part of the show. In fact, on our last trip, we noticed our bands coming to life at some attractions as well! Definitely try wearing your bands to ride WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and pay attention to your band just before you board your ride vehicle. And if you ride the Haunted Mansion you might just notice a ghostly tap as you exit the attraction!

    If you don't have MagicBand+ for everyone in your party yet, no worries! You can purchase them at many locations in the parks and hotels at the Disneyland Resort. I see your trip is just around the corner, Alana, please let me know if I can help with any last-minute planning details or pixie dust!

    Keep moving forward!
