    Hi, is the magicband+ worth having at Disneyland? What does it allow you to do with the band at Disneyland California?

    Hi there, Catherine! Welcome to planDisney.

    I am thrilled about your upcoming trip to the Disneyland Resort! During your visit, you may have the opportunity to see the ever-popular "Magic Happens" Parade at Disneyland Park and savor the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. Check out the Foodie Guide detailing the event's items and more at the official Disney Parks Blog.

    Regarding your question, while having a MagicBand+ is optional, it can add convenience to your experience at the Theme Parks. I also think it's especially helpful if you're planning to use the Disney Genie+ service during your visit to the parks.

    At the Disneyland Resort, MagicBand+ can be used to do the following:

    MagicBand+ will also glow with color and haptic vibrations during select nighttime spectaculars, such as World of Color - ONE. I find this feature adds so much whimsy to the experience of watching a show!

    If you enjoy Star Wars or mobile gamesyou can use your MagicBand+ to play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters. This interactive game transforms you into a bounty hunter, and your MagicBand+ will help you find the bounty assigned to you.

    Catherine, do you already have a MagicBand+ that you have used at Walt Disney World Resort? It's possible to use it on your upcoming trip by linking it to the Disneyland App! Check out this question that I answered to a fellow Canadian about how to link the MagicBand+ to the app.

    Catherine, I hope this information helps you decide if you want a MagicBand+ for your upcoming trip. I wish you the happiest visit!

    Your Pal,
