As shared by theme park and entertainment journalist Scott Gustin (@ScottGustin), starting today, March 1, a new interactive experience will be available at Disneyland Resort for the first time with the debut of several Disney100 platinum statues and medallions that will interact with Guests’ MagicBand+.
Starting today at Disneyland Resort — various Disney100 platinum statues and medallions will now interact with MagicBand+. These work similar to the 50th statues at WDW — just look for a MagicBand+ sign placed in front of the decor.

As Gustin commented, this kind of interactive experience debuted at Walt Disney World as part of the Resort’s 50th-anniversary celebrations. Still, the technology is making its first appearance in the Southern California Resort just now.
As of this article’s publishing, Disney officials have not shared the locations of these interactive statues and medallions, but surely they will be found throughout Disneyland Park, California Adventure, and Downtown Disney District, with more information on the Disney characters and locations soon becoming available in the Disneyland app. Inside the Magic will keep you updated as more information on these interactive experiences at Disneyland Resort becomes available.
