MagicBand+ Arriving at the Disneyland Resort This Fall

After debuting at Walt Disney World earlier this year, the Disneyland Resort has announced that MagicBand+ will launch this fall — marking the first time any MagicBand technology has been employed at the resort.

What’s Happening:

  • Last year, it was revealed that a new technology called MagicBand+ would be making its way to Walt Disney World and, for the first time, the Disneyland Resort.
  • Now, with the service debuted at Walt Disney World this past July, it was the West Coast’s turn for an update.
  • According to the Disney Parks Blog, MagicBand+ will arrive at the Disneyland Resort “this fall.”
  • When it does, guests will find a number of similar functionalities to what’s available at Walt Disney World.
  • First, guests will be able to link tickets to their MagicBand+ and use them for entry as well as to redeem their Lightning Lane reservations and link PhotoPass photos.

  • Additionally, these bands will “glow with the show,” syncing up with some of the resort’s popular nighttime spectaculars (currently Fantasmic! and World of Color).
  • The interactive game Batuu Bounty Hunters will also be coming to Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
  • However, at this time, a tap-to-pay feature — such as one  that Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests have been able to set up — will not be available.

  • In some good news for cross-country fans, MagicBand+s purchased can be used at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts.
  • That said, only MagicBand+ will be supported at the Disneyland Resort, meaning that past models such as MagicBand 2 and earlier will not work.
  • MagicBand+ items are currently sold at select Walt Disney World locations as well as on shopDisney. They will arrive at Disneyland Resort shops at launch.
