    Have a MagicBand + that worked wonderfully in the World. What functions will it perform in the DLR? Staying at Disneyland Villas, so can I use it to get into my room? Thanks!

    Hi Tom! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    Unfortunately, MagicBand+ won't open hotel room doors at Disneyland Resort Hotels, including the beautiful new Villas at Disneyland Hotel. The functionality is a little different from Walt Disney World. MagicBand+ will allow you to scan into the parks and Lightning Lane Entrances, offering a convenient hands-free option. It also offers Guests a more immersive experience, interacting with select Attractions and Entertainment. The band will light up and buzz, drawing you into the fun. At this time, those are the functions offered by the bands at Disneyland Resort. You can't make payments with your band or unlock your hotel room. I'm sorry if that's disappointing! We still found our bands to be really helpful, especially when scanning into Attractions with Genie+.

    When using a band at Disneyland Resort, be sure to assign it to a ticket on the Disneyland mobile app. You'll find the link for MagicBand+ on the app by tapping the three-bar menu and scrolling down. Be sure your band is charged before attempting to link.

    There are lots of fun design options for bands which change fairly regularly. If you would ever like a different design, you can purchase from shopDisney ahead of a visit or when you arrive at Disneyland Resort.

    I hope this helps!
