Walt Disney once said we keep moving forward, opening new doors and doing new things, this is a phrase that have been present throughout the years at the Walt Disney World Resort and this year is no different. The newest innovation is that now you can use your phone as a MagicBand!

We started seeing changes to MagicBands since a few months ago when it was announced that they were no longer be free for guests staying at a Disney Resort and now a new option has been announced: Disney MagicMobile Service.

Disney MagicMobile will offer a convenient and contactless way to access MagicBand features like theme park entry through your iPhone, Apple Watch or any other smart device. Using it will be super simple, all you have to do is create a Disney MagicMobile pass on MyDisneyExperience and add it to your phone digital wallet. Easy right?


But what am i going to do with my MagicBands? No worries! You can still use them if you prefer, Disney MagicMobile Service is just another option you have, so you can pick the one that works best for you.

As for the digital room key feature, this will continue to be available specifically within the MyDisneyExperience app. This allow guests to use online check-in, skip the front desk and go directly to their room.

You also have the option to use a Key to the World card as your key if you prefer so, you can ask for one at the front desk of your resort.
