    Does the MagicBand+ open my hotel door at the Grand Californian, like it does in WDW?

    Hey there, hi there, Jeffery! Welcome to planDisney! We are so glad you've dropped by to ask us your question.

    You are just days away from your visit to Disneyland Resort and I'm thrilled for you! I was so excited last fall when the MagicBand+ made its way to Disneyland Resort. I have been to both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort with my MagicBand+ and I love the convenience it brings to my trips. The MagicBand+ experience does differ from each resort, and unfortunately, we don't have the capability to open hotel room doors at Disneyland Resort with the MagicBand+. I am hopeful that this will be something that they will roll out in the future for Disneyland Resort. If you already have a MagicBand+ that you've used at Walt Disney World, it will also work at Disneyland.

    Currently, you can use the MagicBand+ device to tap into the park gates for entry, check into your Lightning Lane or Individual Lightning Lane selections, link your PhotoPass photos to your account, and enjoy enhanced experiences during nighttime spectaculars. I've also discovered that there are some magic touches to Haunted Mansion, WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and more.
    Don't forget you can also do some bounty hunting in Batuu!

    Jeffery, I hope this information is helpful for your visit. Be sure to stop by again if you have any other questions for us!
