A First Weekend Look at MagicBand+ at Disneyland

MagicBand+ is now available for Magic Key holders, DVC members, and eligible cast members. There are three locations where MagicBand+ can currently be purchased by those who are eligible:

  • Disneyland Park – Starcade
  • Disney California Adventure Park – Super Store featuring Avengers Campus
  • Downtown Disney District – Building adjacent to Star Wars Trading Post 

There are multiple options available for eligible guests wishing to purchase MagicBand+. Not only can MagicBand+ be purchased, cast members are also on hand to help link them to the Disneyland App. Here is a look at what was being offered at Downtown Disney District:

The MagicBand+ wearables can be linked to the Disneyland App and to specific tickets/Magic Keys to allow entrance into Disneyland or Disney California Adventure (with valid admission and a reservation). This also provides a way to connect Disney PhotoPass photos from a photographer while in the parks. MagicBand+ also opens up new immersive experiences throughout the resort. This includes Batuu Bounty Hunters with the Play Disney Parks app and interaction with Nighttime Spectaculars.

MagicBand+ also will interact with attractions in unique ways throughout the park and also other experiences. For example, when exiting the Haunted Mansion the Magic Band pulses like a heart beat. Another place the MagicBand+ interacts is outside of it’s a small world during the We Don’t Talk About Bruno projection show. Daps Magic team member Angela filmed her MagicBand+ interacting with this projection show on the first weekend that wearables were available at the Disneyland Resort. The video can be seen below.

MagicBand+ will be available for all guests starting on October 26, 2022. Starting on this date, MagicBand+ will be available at the following locations:

  • Downtown Disney District: World of Disney, Disney’s Pin Traders
  • Disneyland park: Emporium, Pioneer Mercantile, Tomorrow Landing (reopening Oct. 26)
