Launching in phases starting later this year, Disney MagicMobile service is a convenient and contactless way to access MagicBand features like theme park entry through the power of an 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.
Guests may choose to use Disney MagicMobile service or a MagicBand – pick whichever option works best during their visit. They can even use both and alternate between the two for added flexibility. We touched on this new service last year and it seems like Disney has been hard at work getting it ready for 2021. For many guests this means no more bands or tickets. All you’ll need is your phone and you’re ready to go.
It is nice that guests can alternate between the services so that if you want to bring or wear a MagicBand you can! Our guess is that most guests, for the first several years, will continue to wear bands as they are a great way to show off their favorite attractions and characters, just like t-shirts have done for so many years.
