    Visiting Disneyland for the first time; I have DW MyDisney Experience app. How do I access my ticket and make park res? I also have a DVC res that I need to link. Do I have to download Disneyland app? Will my Magic Band work? Best way to access park info?

    Hi Shook Josie, welcome to planDisney! 

    It looks like your trip to Disneyland Resort is nearly here, you'll be at the Happiest Place on Earth in no time!

    Disneyland Resort has an official Disneyland mobile app that is similar to the My Disney Experience Mobile app. Once you have downloaded the app, you can verify that your tickets are linked to your account by typing in the eTicket ID number you received in your confirmation email. When the tickets are linked, any park reservations that were previously made should appear in the "My Plans" section. If you prefer to use the website, head to the "Link Tickets" page and then visit the "Ticket and Reservation Details" page and choose the option there for Guests who hold previously purchased tickets. Lastly, follow the steps on the screen to select your park dates and corresponding theme park and you will be all set!

    With regards to MagicBands, if you own a MagicBand+, you will be able to use it to enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park once you have linked it in the Disneyland app. Unfortunately, MagicBand and MagicBand 2 are not supported at the Disneyland Resort at this time and cannot be linked to the Disneyland app. If you decide you'd like a MagicBand+, they are available for purchase at many shops throughout the Disneyland Resort.  

    The Disneyland app is a great planning resource and it is where you'll find information such as Park Hours, parade and show times, Character Meets locations, dining options and so much more!

    Shook Josie, I hope this information is helpful. If you have any other questions, please visit planDisney again. 

    See ya real soon,
