    Can I use my Magicband purchased at Walt Disney World at Disneyland California?

    Hello there, Jaime, and welcome to planDisney!

    We're happy that you decided to stop by with your question and I'm excited to help you with your MagicBand! I'm a tech geek, so I was very excited when the Disney Parks Blog announced that MagicBand+ functionality was coming to the Disneyland Resort. In fact, I had a trip planned to the Walt Disney World Resort and purchased a MagicBand+ so I could use the same Band on both coasts!

    At this current time, Jamie, only the MagicBand+ is supported at the Disneyland Resort, so you will be able to use your MagicBand only if it a MagicBand+, not the older generation MagicBand 1 or 2. You can easily check this by using the My Disney Experience App and pressing the "☰" Features Menu. Then find "MagicBands and More" and you should see all MagicBands registered under your account and their type. I had to unlink my MagicBand+ from My Disney Experience before I was able to link it to my account and ticket in the Disneyland Mobile App

    If you find that you won't be able to use your current MagicBand, you may purchase a new MagicBand+ at these locations around the Resort. There are so many cool designs and I'm sure you'll be able to find something that speaks to you. With your MagicBand+, you'll be able to experience new Dazzling Interactions for the Disney100 Celebration and use it to scan into the Parks and redeem Lightning Lanes! 

    Jaime, your trip is just around the corner and I wish you the most magical vacation ever! I hope you found this information helpful and, if you need anything else from us, please write back again anytime. You're always welcome at planDisney and we hope to see ya real soon!

    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
