30 Mar What is the new Disney MagicMobile service all about?
Starting today, Walt Disney World guests will be able to enjoy a convenient and contactless new option for entering the theme parks and more, as part of the rollout of Disney MagicMobile service!
Available now on iPhone and Apple Watch and coming soon to other smart devices. Of course, this is in addition to the ability to still use the really popular MagicBands- read on for more about both options to assist with the magic!
Here are a few helpful tips to get started with Disney MagicMobile service:
- You can create a customized digital pass: Create a Disney MagicMobile pass through your My Disney Experience app and add it to the Wallet app on iPhone or the digital wallet on other smart devices. You can customize your pass by choosing from several Disney-themed designs that animate upon use (including special designs just for Annual Passholders and DVC Members)! For added ease, you may also store multiple passes on a single device, a great option for families.
- Enter the parks easily: Simply hold your iPhone, Apple Watch, or other smart device near an access point when entering the parks or using other available features, just like you do with a MagicBand. With Express Mode on iPhone and Apple Watch, guests do not even need to wake or unlock their Apple device, or open up the app, to use their Disney MagicMobile pass. Remember, valid park admission and a park reservations are required for park entry and must be linked to your account- however, your PPV Inc. agent will help with all of this pre -travel prep!
- Extra enhancements to My Disney Experience: You can now automatically link your Disney PhotoPass attraction photos and videos to your profile through your smartphone. Just confirm your settings in advance of riding at participating attractions. The My Disney Experience app also enables Disney Resort hotel guests to unlock their room door using our current digital room key feature.
Can we still use MagicBands?
With all that said, many guests want to know if they can still use MagicBands and if they will still be a popular way to enjoy ease of entry in and around the theme parks. That answer is YES! Magic bands are still very popular and we are anticipating that to remain. As an onsite Walt Disney World guest, you will have access to discounted MagicBands that can be ordered before you travel. You can also still continue to purchase MagicBands at nearly all merchandise locations throughout the parks and resorts at Walt Disney World. If you are a MagicBand lover, you can absolutely use them and will still be able to enjoy all the features that make them so attractive such as park entry, fast pass entry, photo pass, charging options and more!
Key to the World Card;
If the idea of all this technology has your head spinning, you always have access to a Key to the World card to use throughout your stay. You can pick one up at the front desk of your resort and use that throughout your stay!
