MagicBand+ will make its momentous West Coast debut when it launches at the Disneyland Resort on Oct. 26, 2022. This marks a huge milestone in resort history, as Guests will soon discover for the very first time how this wearable technology will enhance their experience and unlock a new dimension of Disney storytelling at the Happiest Place on Earth.
Eligible Cast members, Magic Key holders and Disney Vacation Club members will have the opportunity to be among the first to purchase MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort from select locations and get a first look at its features before the official launch! Starting Oct. 19, select merchandise locations around the Disneyland Resort will have MagicBand+ available for purchase with the presentation of a valid photo ID plus a valid company-issued ID, Disney Vacation Club membership or Magic Key pass. From there, Guests will be able to set up their band and try it out in the parks (valid park admission and reservation required)!
Hands-free convenience and enhanced park experiences
We previously shared how the easy-to-use features of MagicBand+ will provide seamless and hands-free convenience during your visit. With a tap of their band, Guests will be able to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks (valid park admission and reservation required), easily check in at Lightning Lane entrances (separate Lightning Lane entry required) and link photos from a Disney PhotoPass photographer to their Disney account.
MagicBand+ will also unlock a new dimension of Disney storytelling, coming alive with color-changing LED lights and haptic vibrations during select park experiences and entertainment. For example, Guests may discover MagicBand+ adding surprising and magical touches to certain entertainment at Avengers Campus in Disney California Adventure Park!
At night, MagicBand+ will dazzle along with nighttime spectaculars as it illuminates and pulses in sync to special moments during “World of Color” in Disney California Adventure Park, “Fantasmic!” in Disneyland Park and other select nighttime shows throughout the year. MagicBand+ will also interact with the two recently announced nighttime spectaculars debuting on January 27, 2023 as part of the Disney 100 Years of Wonder anniversary celebration: “World of Color – One” at Disney California Adventure and “Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland.
At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland, Guests will be able to use MagicBand+ to seek virtual bounties hidden across Black Spire Outpost in the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters interactive quest. Then, when they find their bounty, they can use the Play Disney Parks app’s augmented reality thermal viewer to reveal who’s hiding in the shadows.
Guests can use MagicBand+ at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, with varying features and experiences between the two destinations . All these features are just the beginning of the fun at the Disneyland Resort – more MagicBand+ innovations and experiences will be introduced in the future.
Stylish assortment of collectible designs
Beginning Oct. 26, MagicBand+ will be available for all Guests to purchase at the following locations:
Both kids and kids-at-heart will enjoy wearing and collecting MagicBand+! It’s size adjustable, and an impressive selection of more than 18 colors and designs will be available at launch, including five prints exclusive to Disneyland Resort. More options featuring favorite Disney characters and stories will continually be added – be on the lookout! While supplies last, Magic Key holders will be able to purchase a specially designed Magic Key band, which even has a unique light-up sequence.
Easy to use, customizable settings and rechargeable battery
Once MagicBand+ is in hand, follow these three simple steps to set it up:
Step 1: Power on MagicBand+ by pressing on the button on the back once and tap the band to the back of your phone.
Step 2: Guests will be directed to open or download the Disneyland app.*
Step 3: Follow the instructions in the Disneyland app to link the MagicBand+ to their Disney account, assign it to their ticket or pass and pair it to their smartphone.
For Guests to enjoy all the available features of MagicBand+, they'll need a Disney account and the Disneyland app. For more information, visit Disneyland.com or ask a question using the Chat with Us feature on the Disneyland app.
MagicBand+ is also rechargeable, so Guests can use it again and again each time they visit. We recommend charging it overnight with the included USB charging cable, and once fully charged, they can power it off until they're ready to use it again. Depending on their use, a fully charged battery on MagicBand+ can last between one to three days. For all the Grizzly River Run fans, don’t worry about MagicBand+ getting wet – it’s waterproof!
We’re thrilled to launch MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort and cannot wait for Guests to experience the magic when this next-generation technology launches later this month!
