They’re available in a variety of colors and styles, including designer names like Dooney & Burke. You can certainly guess that Disneyland will include the same thing.



There are some absolute benefits to using Magicbands, so they will be a huge benefit to Disneyland Park.

  • Firstly, the use of Magicbands will help greatly reduce jammed queues to light up lanes without waiting for people to fumble for their phones.
  • Second, it will also help save your phone’s battery life without needing to take it out as often.
  • Faster entry lines for the park.

I remember after visiting Disneyworld and seeing how smooth all the lines were, Disneyland desperately needed to introduce Magicbands. They really do make a big difference.

Difference Between Magic Band Disneyland and Disneyworld

There are big differences between Magic Band Disneyland and Disneyworld. The Magicbands at Disney World are much more advanced. Using Disneyworld Magicbands allows you to connect a credit card that allows you to instantly make purchases throughout the park.

With the Disney World Magic Band, you can even link your band to your Disney Resort hotel and unlock your room door. I imagine that as the Disneyland Magic Band smoothes out any of its initial wrinkles, these features will also present themselves.
