    Greetings, Sylvia! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for choosing to bring your questions to us! 

    A field trip to Disneyland?! Wow! Your son must be over the moon with excitement! I have good news! If you’d like to purchase Disney Genie+ for him, you may be able to do so after he scans in at the main entrance turnstiles. If purchased, he’ll be able to make one Lightning Lane selection at a time throughout the day. And, if he has a Park Hopper ticket, he can make a Lightning Lane reservation for either theme park during the Park Hopper hours, even if he is at the opposite theme park. 

    If you are familiar with MagicBand+ at Walt Disney World, you may know it can be used to make purchases and pay for dining at the resort in Florida. Unfortunately, MagicBand+ does not have the same capabilities here at the Disneyland Resort. Your son can use MagicBand+ at the theme park's main entrance, at Lightning Lane entrances and to link photos to his Disneyland Account with a Disney PhotoPass Photographer. No matter which theme park you visit, MagicBand+ does not have location features. 

    My top tip for sticking to a budget at the Disneyland Resort is Disney Gift Cards! Purchasing a Disney Gift Card for your son’s class trip to “The Happiest Place on Earth!” is a great idea! He can use it to buy merchandise and place Mobile Food and Beverage Orders. Unfortunately, there’s no way to store the Gift Card on his Disneyland Mobile App. He will have to enter the numbers each time he places an order or makes a purchase. He can manually enter the numbers or scan the barcode on the back of the card.  

    I hope this information is helpful and he enjoys a wonderful time at the Disneyland Resort! Please come back to planDisney if you think of any more questions ahead of his trip!
