    Can the MagicBand+ be used to unlock hotel rooms at the Disneyland Resort?

    Hi there, Dawn! 

    Welcome back to planDisney, and thanks for asking us another question. I’m happy to hear you’re interested in utilizing MagicBand+ during your visit to the Disneyland Resort

    I love being able to easily enter the parks with the tap of a band, and they are also convenient when checking in at Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances. The most fun feature is when the bands glow in multiple colors and buzz with vibrations, which makes them an extra magical way to remain hands-free as you enjoy the parks! Be sure to have your MagicBand+ on during World of Color – ONE, Fantasmic!, and other nighttime spectaculars. The band will enhance your experience as it lights up and pulses with haptic vibrations during the shows! You can also tap your MagicBand+ to link the photos taken by Disney PhotoPass Photographers in the theme parks to your account. 

    No, MagicBand+ does not currently have the capability to unlock your Disneyland Resort Hotel room door. However, if you link your hotel reservation to the Disneyland mobile app, you’ll be able to use your smartphone to unlock your door via the app. 

    I hope this information is helpful, Dawn, and that your vacation is pixie-dusted to perfection! Please don’t hesitate to write back with more questions as your planning continues. 

    Wishing you magic,
