Who’s ready to use MagicBand+ at Disneyland Resort? You are? Good, because MagicBand+ debuts October 26, 2022 at Disneyland!
Disney announced the news on October 12, along with a few other important details, including where and when guests can purchase MagicBand 2.0.
On September 20, Disney teased that MagicBand+ would launch sometime this fall and now we finally have a date.
Starting October 19, eligible Cast Members, Magic Key holders, and Disney Vacation Club members will have the chance to purchase MagicBand+ early from select locations.
In order to purchase, a valid photo ID plus a valid company-issued ID, Disney Vacation Club membership, or Magic Key pass are required.
Come October 26, all guests will be able to buy MagicBand+ at the following locations:

We already knew that, like at Disney World, MagicBand+ will interact with select experiences and different nighttime spectaculars.
Disney announced on October 12 that MagicBand+ will add “surprising and magical touches to certain entertainment at Avengers Campus.”
Plus, MagicBand+ will interact with the new Disney100 nighttime shows debuting January 27, 2023 at Disneyland: “World of Color – One” at Disney California Adventure and “Wondrous Journeys” at Disneyland.
And remember that you can use MagicBand+ at both Disneyland and Disney World, with varying features and experiences between the 2 destinations.
