When the MagicBand+ rolls out at Disneyland this fall, there will be a lot of similar features to how the MagicBand+ currently functions at Walt Disney World. That said, there is one big difference in how a MagicBand+ is viewed by the Disneyland app versus how it’s viewed by the My Disney Experience app at Walt Disney World. At Disneyland, a MagicBand+ will be reassignable – something that is impossible at Walt Disney World.
Your MagicBand+ can be reassigned to a different ticket or pass if you would like to change your method of entry or transfer your band to a different Guest. You are able to manage all of your MagicBands in the MagicBand+ section of the Disneyland App.
Effectively, the MagicBand+ is associated with a ticket at Disneyland (and can be removed from said ticket), whereas at Walt Disney World, the MagicBand+ is assigned to a person via your My Disney Experience account.
The difference in functionality can be frustrating for guests, but it does highlight fundamental differences that will be present in the MagicBand+ between Disneyland and Walt Disney World. MagicBand+ will be supported on both coasts, and we will hopefully learn more about the key differences that may exist as we get closer to the “Fall” launch of MagicBand+ at Disneyland.
Here’s how each resort answers the question of reassigning a MagicBand+ (h/t Scott Gustin).
