We announced a few weeks ago that Disney was in the process of rolling out software that would allow you to use your phone, Apple watch, or MagicBand to access your My Disney Experience account.
Disney MagicMobile service is a convenient and contactless way to access MagicBand features like theme park entry through the power of your iPhone, Apple Watch or other smart device. Guests will be able to create a Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience app and add it to their smart device’s digital wallet. It works like magic – most features will be available by just holding up your smart device near an access point, just like you do with a MagicBand. Disney MagicMobile service and its features will roll out first on Apple devices.
As you can see below, they have just added the feature to the options in My Disney Experience:
Guests may choose to use Disney MagicMobile service or a MagicBand – pick whichever option works best for you during your visit. You can even use both and alternate between the two for added flexibility.
As you can see from the screenshots below, the feature says “Coming Soon!” for now. But there is a short video graphic at the top that shows you how you will have the option of using both your iPhone and your Apple Watch in place of a MagicBand. *They are not getting rid of MagicBands. This is an additional option for those who are so inclined to use it.
According to the app, you will be able to use your iPhone or Apple Watch to enter theme parks(with valid park ticket and reservation) and connect to your Disney PhotoPass images.
The existing digital room key feature will continue to be available specifically within the My Disney Experience app, which helps guests expedite their arrival by using online check-in service, going directly to their Disney Resort hotel room and using their phone to unlock their door. Disney Resort hotel guests may also still pick up a Key to the World card at their convenience by visiting the front desk.
