    We have new magic plus magic bands as we are WDW passholders and use them all the time at WDW. We are going to Disneyland and want to know if we can use these same bands and if so if I need to do anything different?? Thank you!

    Hiya Lyn,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for submitting your question to us. 

    The magic is shared between Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in the form of MagicBand+! You can use your MagicBand+ from Walt Disney World Resort at the Disneyland Resort. Just so you know, only MagicBand+ can be used at Disneyland Resort, so older MagicBand versions won't work. 

    To use a MagicBand+ for a visit to the Disneyland Resort, use the Disneyland app to first link the band to your Disneyland Resort account (you may have to deactivate or reset the MagicBand+ on your My Disney Experience app first). Click on the app’s (☰) feature at the bottom right-hand side of your screen, then scroll down and select “MagicBand+” which will open the MagicBand+ page. You can click the (+) at the top right side to link a new MagicBand+ to your Disneyland account and follow the step-by-step instructions (very similar to Disney World) to link your MagicBand+ to your Disneyland account. Once the MagicBand+ is paired to your MyDisney account in the Disneyland app, follow the steps to link your theme park tickets to your MagicBand+. Then once your MagicBand+ is linked, “there’s nowhere to go but up!” 

    Pixar Fest is in full swing at the Disneyland Resort and you can experience this celebration of friendship in the parks. Check out the Foodie Guide to Pixar Fest for all the Pixar-themed snacks available (I recommend the Pixar Cake from Plaza Inn and the Red Panda Bao from 4*Town Fav*4*ites Marketplace). You can also book a Fantasmic! Dining Package to secure prime seating (subject to availability) for the newly returned show Fantasmic!, where you can “dream a fantastic dream” with Mickey Mouse! 

    I hope your visit is “practically perfect in every way”! If you have other questions about the Disneyland Resort, remember - you’ve got a friend in me!
