    When setting up magic bands for the family, should I pair all of them to one phone? ( The person who has access to all tickets) or should I have each individual pair to their own phone after downloading the Disney ap ( except for children)

    Hiya Kim!

    Welcome to planDisney and we're so happy that you came by with your question! How exciting that you have a family trip planned to the Disneyland Resort soon! I love visiting with a large group of family because it's so much fun exploring the Happiest Place on Earth with your loved ones. 

    That's great that you are preparing for your visit by purchasing a MagicBand+ for everyone! I've loved the convenience of having them for my visits. It's so much easier to just scan your MagicBand+ when entering the Parks, redeeming Lightning Lanes and linking Disney PhotoPass pictures. 

    The beauty of MagicBand+ is that, once you successfully link them to their respective ticket, you don't really need to think about them after that! So in response to your question, if one person has all the tickets linked to their phone, I think it would be most convenient to just link each MagicBand+ to its ticket on that phone. Just make sure that you know which MagicBand+ belongs to which individual and remember that a MagicBand+ can only be linked to one ticket at a time. If someone in your party wants more control over their MagicBand+ (such as altering the light colors in the settings menu), then it would make sense to have it linked to their phone so they are able to access these options. 

    Your visit is almost here and you'll get to enjoy one of my favorite times of the year, Halloween! Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog because you never know when they'll put out a new Foodie Guide for this season. And make sure to experience Haunted Mansion Holiday as Jack Skellington takes over this famous attraction for the rest of the year!

    Kim, I hope that this was helpful for you as you plan your family's trip! If there is anything else that we can do for you, please reach out again anytime! You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

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
