    Can I use my MagicBand+ interchangeably at WDW and Disneyland?

    Hi there, Debbie Rae!

    I'm so happy you stopped by to see us here at planDisney! It sounds like you are a lucky person indeed, planning to visit Mickey and his pals from coast to coast. How fun! Let me grab my pixie dust to fly along with you for a little bit.

    I'm happy to report that MagicBand+ will work at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort! When you are visiting Disneyland you'll need the Disneyland Mobile App to pair your MagicBand+ to your tickets. Then when you visit Walt Disney World you will use the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Your MagicBand+ will work with both apps! You can access MagicBand+ options through the main menu of both apps by tapping the "≡" icon to open the main menu. In the Disneyland version of the app you'll choose "MagicBand+" at the top of the list, but the Walt Disney World MagicBand+ section is called "MagicBands and More" and is a little farther down the list.

    Setting up your MagicBand+ is slightly different between each app. You can find the instructions for using MagicBand+ at Disneyland Resort here, and the instructions for using MagicBand+ at Walt Disney World here.  

    Each app will allow you to link your MagicBand+ to a park ticket so that you can use your band to enter the parks, gather photos from Disney PhotoPass Photographers, tap in at Lightning Lanes when you purchase Disney Genie+, and enjoy magical effects from the parks...especially during shows! My favorite MagicBand+ moment is at Disneyland Park as you're leaving the Haunted Mansion. Your Ghost Host can't resist sending one more message reminding you to "Hurry Back!" for another visit!

    The Disney100 Celebration is happening across the parks, and I know you will love the exciting new entertainment, yummy treats, and gorgeous decorations. Don't forget to swing by and visit Mickey, he just reopened his home to visitors in Mickey's Toontown!

    Debbie Rae, you have some big adventures ahead of you! If you have more questions about using your MagicBand+ or other park activities like dining reservations and the mobile apps I hope you'll visit us again real soon!

    Keep moving forward!
