    Do we need to buy/use/wear the Magic bands at Disneyland and/or California Adventures?


    Hello Rebecca!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    Unfortunately, Disneyland Resort does not utilize the Magic Band and FP+ system that Walt Disney World does. They use paper tickets for your park entrance and you can make your FASTPASS reservations at the available kiosks outside of the attractions that use that service.

    To get a FASTPASS for a ride, simply insert your park ticket into the kiosk and a return time ticket will be dispensed for you to enjoy the ride at a later time. This gives you time to visit the attractions with shorter waits, enjoy a meal, catch a parade or simply walk around the parks instead of waiting in the queue for that attraction.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
