    So, MagicBand+s (is that how you pluralize that?) now work at Disneyland. My party has older models of band. Obviously, they won't work FULLY for color interactions etc, but will the base tap functionality for park admission and Lightning Land work?

    Hi there, Erik! 

    Welcome, and thank you for stopping by planDisney to ask us this great question. I’m glad to hear you’re planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort

    It’s important to note that MagicBand+ is the only MagicBand model that can be used at the Disneyland Resort. Older MagicBand types, such as the original MagicBand and MagicBand 2, are unfortunately not supported and won't function in any way at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. You're also not able to link older bands to the Disneyland mobile app or assign admission tickets to them for the purpose of theme park entry and Lightning Lane access. 

    If you wish, you can purchase MagicBand+ online at disneystore.com prior to your vacation or at various locations throughout the Disneyland Resort after you’ve arrived. There are a variety of colors and designs to choose from, and they all have the ability to glow in multiple colors and pulse with vibrations. This makes the bands a magical way to enhance your experience in the parks, especially during shows like World of Color – ONE, Fantasmic!, and other nighttime spectaculars. Personally, I love being able to easily enter the theme parks or check in at Lightning Lane entrances with just a tap of my band!

    I hope this information helps you plan, Erik, and that your group has a wonderful time. Please don’t hesitate to write back to me with more questions as you continue planning your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
