    I am traveling to DIsneyland for the first time in 20 years in July. Can I use a magicband plus at DL and DCA?

    A Great, Big, Beautiful Welcome to planDisney, Jessica! I'm so honored you chose to bring your question to us, especially in advance of such a special vacation to Disneyland Resort. It'll be such a pleasure to help!

    I am very happy to share with you that the MagicBand+ is now compatible for use at Disneyland Resort! It's so fun to use a MagicBand+ to scan for theme park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, Disney PhotoPass images, and other special interactive features throughout the theme parks and the Downtown Disney District! I especially love the synced haptics and light-up functions during iconic Disneyland Resort nighttime spectaculars. It just takes the experience to a new level! Plus, my kiddos love using the Play Disney Parks app to enable their MagicBand+ device to search for virtual bounties in Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters. Honestly, this activity is often the highlight of their day, even more than the thrill ride attractions!

    There are some great step-by-step instructions for MagicBand+ set up and if you have any need for tech support, you can consult the FAQs or speak with a Cast Member via phone or online chat. 

    Jessica, I hope this is a helpful start! If we can share any more advice or ideas in advance of your next visit, I welcome you to come back and share another question with us. Recently, my friend and fellow panelist Al C. and I shared some of our top tips for visiting Disneyland Resort as a first-time (or first-time-in-a-while) Guest in an episode of the planDisney podcast. I'll link it below in case you have an opportunity to watch or listen before your visit approaches! In the meantime, I'm wishing you the most unforgettable memories with your loved ones!

    Magically yours,
