October 13 - We now have confirmation that MagicBand+ will officially launch at Disneyland Resort on October 26. Eligible cast members, Magic Key holders and Disney Vacation Club members will have the chance to purchase MagicBand+ from October 19.
MagicBand+ will come in a range of colors and designs and will be available for all guests to purchase from October 26 from the following locations:
- Downtown Disney District: World of Disney, Disney’s Pin Traders
- Disneyland park: Emporium, Pioneer Mercantile, Tomorrow Landing (reopening Oct. 26)

MagicBand+ launched at Walt Disney World at the end of July. The MagicBand+ has smart features including color-changing LED lights, vibrations and gesture recognition.
The MagicBand+ at Disneyland Resort will be very similar to the Walt Disney World MagicBand+ and can be paired to a smartphone device through the Disneyland App to unlock a number of personalisation options such as lighting colors and vibration settings. Guests will also be able to connect their MagicBand+ to theme park tickets, Magic Key Pass and Lightning Lane as well as Disney PhotoPass.
At Disneyland Resort your MagicBand+ will sync and come to life during "World of Color" in Disney California Adventure and "Fantasmic!" and other nighttime shows at Disneyland Park. It has also been confirmed that the MagicBand+ will interact with the upcoming holiday shows, “Believe… in Holiday Magic” & “World of Color – Season of Light.”
MagicBand+ will also interact with the new nighttime spectaculars, ‘World of Color – One’ at Disney California Adventure and ‘Wondrous Journeys’, which are debuting on 27 January 2023 at Disneyland as part of ‘Disney 100 Years of Wonder’.
Guests will also be able to play like a bounty hunter in a galaxy far, far away and find virtual bounties throughout Black Spire Outpost in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park.
Disney promises further experiences for MagicBand+ in the future alongside the ones already announced. We expect the standard MagicBand+ to go on sale for $34.99. Disney has released a video showing all the specific features of the MagicBand+ which officially launches at Disneyland Resort on October 26.
