As regular Walt Disney World Resort Park Guests, when we do visit Disneyland Resort, it’s an odd feeling NOT wearing a MagicBand. Well, after months of waiting, Disney has FINALLY revealed the update we’ve all been waiting for. That’s right… MagicBand+ is officially launching at Disneyland soon.

Disney MagicBand+ is a step up from the “regular” MagicBands that have been available at Walt Disney World Resort. Disney World has already launched the use of MagicBand+ to “plus” experiences such as the Fab 50 character sculptures and fireworks viewing of Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT.

Now, with the official launch of MagicBand+ happening at Disneyland Resort, Park Guests on the west coast will easily be able to gain access to Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure. Plus, the lights and vibrations MagicBand+ offers will be fun additions to World of Color, Fantasmic!, and more.

Purchasing Disney Genie+ or individual Lightning Lanes while at Disneyland? The MagicBand+ will be an easy option for scanning entry into the Lightning Lane, rather than having to pull out your phone to do so.
