Enter Disney World with A Wave of Your Device! Disney MagicMobile Service Now Available

by Mommy Frog on April 2, 2021 4 Orlando

Disney MagicMobile - Touchpoint

Guess what? You can now use your iPhone or Apple Watch to enter the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks! Disney MagicMobile service has officially launched, which means entering a park is as easy as waving your wand ... errr, smart device. You don't even need to wake it from sleep mode. Hot dog!

Disney MagicMobile service is now offered in addition to MagicBands, which will continue to be offered and used across property. While Tad and Lily looooove their MagicBands, trying to find comfortable arm real estate to fit both my MagicBand and my Apple Watch has never been my fave (and without my watch, how else can I tell the whole Frog Fam how many hops we got in while we walk back to the car at the end of our day?). It is a trivial problem, I know, but the ability to just use my phone or watch to enter the parks makes me super hoppy. Disney MagicMobile is convenient, but it also gives you the ability to add some Disney character much like MagicBands!

MagicMobile is a new, contactless way to access the parks. The service allows you to make and customize a digital pass through My Disney Experience, which is then added to the Wallet app. (If you've ever added a plane ticket to your Wallet, the process is very similar ... but also way cuter). Most on-site functionality will remain in My Disney Experience, including PhotoPass and the digital room key feature. MagicMobile is just the name of the service that allows you to create that digital pass for entry on your Apple device (the service will expand to include other smart devices in the near future).

Disney MagicMobile Service - Pass Designs

To begin, make sure you have the My Disney Experience app downloaded on your smartphone, and your tickets linked to the app (yes, Undercover Tourist tickets can be linked in My Disney Experience!. From the app, select Tickets and Passes and follow the instructions listed under Link a Ticket or Pass. You can scan the bar code on your E-ticket PDF found in your Undercover Tourist account or your E-Tickets are Ready email). Ready to bibbidi-bobbidi-boo this?

  1. In the My Disney Experience app, click the three horizontal lines to open the menu. Select "Disney MagicMobilePass." You may be prompted to re-enter your password.
  2. Select the plus sign to add a pass; eligible guests should automatically appear. If you don't see a guest you're looking for, give Guest Relations a call at (407) 939-4357.
  3. Now the fun part: customizing your pass! There are all kinds of toadally fun designs to choose from, including ear hats, attractions, park icons and snacks. They are all animated upon use, with special designs for Annual Passholders and DVC members. You can use and store multiple passes on a single device, so just repeat this process for each member of your party. You can always change the style later, if you want to switch things up!
  4. Hold your device near an access point when you enter the park, just like you would with MagicBand. You don't even need to wake your device or open the app! Keep in mind that you still need valid admission and a Disney Park Pass to enter a theme park at this time. For family and friends, double click the side or home button to open your Apple wallet. Then, swipe to their pass to use it.
  5. Through the My Disney Experience app, you can select passes to share. Anyone who receives your shared pass will be able to add it to their Apple Wallet and use all of its linked entitlements. This would come in handy in case either Leap or I lose one of our phones!

There you have it! Remember, you can use MagicBand and MagicMobile interchangeably. (Left a MagicBand in the room? No prob!). Keys to the World cards can be picked up at the front desk for Disney World Resort hotel guests for those who would prefer a non-digital method.

How does this work when you have young children without phones? Rumor is they will discontinue magic bands so im curious what we will need.

Hi Kat Mouse Ears!

MagicBands are still available for use around the resort (just not given as a complimentary perk to Annual Passholders or hotel guests any longer). Alternatively, guests can get a physical Keys to the World or admission card at the hotel front desk or Guest Relations. However, multiple tickets can be loaded onto MagicMobile - so if one party member has MagicMobile and access to tickets via Friends and Family in My Disney Experience, that same person can tap into the park for everyone using MagicMobile - kids included :) Hope this helps!

Hoppy planning!

I set Magic Mobile up on my Samsung Galaxy 21S Ultra 5G smart phone. But it would be a lot more convenient if I could set it up with my Galaxy Watch 3. Why just the Apple Watch?

Hi, I'm an Apple user, so I want to know, are you using magic mobile in a Samsung wallet app (or some equivalent), or a separate Disney app. If you're using a Disney app , then you probably can't add that app to your smartwatch. As opposed to iOS users, where Apple allows adding the Magic Mobile to apple Wallet. Once it's in the wallet, Apple Watch also supports Apple Wallet.

Hope that helps!
