    Hello, I am planning a family visit in April. Recently I've seen that Magic Bands can be used at Disneyland. Are these required for entry like at WDW or are they optional? Thanks!

    Greetings and salutations, Frank!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting us here at planDisney! I'm glad that you asked about MagicBands because I absolutely love mine. I make sure that I have my MagicBand+ packed and charged on every trip I make to the Disneyland Resort now.

    To answer your question, MagicBands are NOT required for entry at the Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World. They are a completely optional device that add a host of fun and convenient features to your trip! You can use them to scan your tickets for Park entry, redeem Lightning Lanes, and attach PhotoPass photos to your account. For the Star Wars fan, use your MagicBand+ in conjunction with the Play Disney Parks app to hunt for bounties while visiting Galaxy's Edge! 

    Please note that only the MagicBand+ is currently supported at the Disneyland Resort. New Bands may be purchased at prior to your visit or at these locations while on property. When you receive your new MagicBand+, use the Disneyland Mobile App to link it with your account and ticket. 

    I'm really excited for you and your family to visit the Happiest Place on Earth in April! I love how each family member can individualize their MagicBand+ to their tastes. I recently returned from a trip to Walt Disney World and really enjoyed being able to use the same Band for both Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort. 

    Frank, I hope you found this helpful. Please do not hesitate to come to us again if you have any further questions! We're here to help!

    Have a Magical Day!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
