    Can I use the magicband I purchased at Walt Disney World in March 2022 in Disneyland when I visit in February 2023?

    Hey howdy hey, Karen, and welcome to planDisney

    How exciting to get the chance to visit both Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort in 2022 and 2023! I actually just returned from the Walt Disney World Resort, and I loved using my MagicBand+ to interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection throughout all four theme parks. 

    Now, to help you figure out if you can use your current MagicBand at the Disneyland Resort. Unfortunately, only MagicBand+ is currently supported at Disneyland Resort. At this time, MagicBand and MagicBand 2 are not supported at Disneyland Resort, and can’t be linked to the Disneyland app. So, if you’d prefer to use MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort, you’ll have the option to purchase one from a select shop upon arrival, or you can order one ahead of time online at shopDisney. The good news is that once you purchase MagicBand+, you’ll be able to use it at both Disneyland Resort and on your next visit to Walt Disney World Resort! If you prefer not to purchase a MagicBand+, you can still access many similar features by downloading the Disneyland app to your mobile device. Personally, I prefer to use them in tandem, since I love the convenience of using my MagicBand+ to enter the theme parks, scan Disney PhotoPass pictures, and to enter Lightning Lanes with Disney Genie+ service.

    By the way, you’re arriving at the perfect time with the Disney100 anniversary celebration kicking off on January 27, 2023! I can’t wait for the opening of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway, and the return of the Magic Happens parade this spring. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more information about Disney100 as it gets closer.

    I hope this information helps, Karen! Please stop by with any additional questions… we love making your Disney dreams come true!

    Wishing you magic,
