    Do you still use the preloaded wristbands and mail them out before we come to the parks?

    Hey there, Terri!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I can't wait for you to head to sunny California to visit the Happiest Place on Earth. It sounds to me like you have previously visited the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and are referring to the fabulous MagicBands that are included with your hotel stay. When you book a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay, you will still be mailed MagicBands that can be used as your room key, park ticket, and credit card during your vacation. The Disneyland Resort in California does not use or offer MagicBands at this time.

    When you vacation at the Disneyland Resort and stay in one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, you will be given a standard card room key. This can be used to verify that you are staying on property when you enter the parks if you plan on taking advantage of the great Extra Magic Hour benefit as a hotel guest. Although you will not be using MagicBands there are still some great technological advances at this Resort that will help you make the most of your vacation. First, you should download the official Disneyland app to your mobile device. This app offers interactive park maps, attraction wait times, and so much more. Plus you can even link your park ticket to the app and use the app as an electronic ticket when you enter the gates. The app's newest and most exciting feature is Disney MaxPass which allows you to digitally make FASTPASS selections throughout the entire day. You won't believe how much you can see and do with this feature!

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a magical day!
