The MagicBand, the colorful wristband guests wear at Walt Disney World Resort, makes each visit even simpler and more seamless. We’ve continued to invent and innovate, and soon, we’ll be debuting a new option: Disney MagicMobile service!

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 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.

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. We’ll also soon be introducing more MagicBands in trendy new colors and fun designs featuring favorite Disney characters and stories.

Our 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.
It's about time.

A lot of people are going “RIP Magic Bands”. Uhhhhh no? They’re just offering alternatives to entering the park. The problem causing MDE system isn’t going anywhere, so why would the successful money making accessories go anywhere?

Most guests have phones, but that will surely be less convenient. Few people have Apple Watches, although I’m sure that would be more convenient.

Yeah, lots of misunderstanding of this and the end of ‘free’ Magicbands with resort rooms. This is just a new way to access the same entitlements you‘ve used a magicband for over the last few years.

I’ve been using an Apple Watch for payment at the parks for years now and it is wonderfully convenient. Adding FP and admission into that is just a nice convenience

So will the Apple Watch be able to completely replace the magic band with regards to things like ride pictures automatically showing up in the app without scanning anything or will the watch only work for things like admission to the park and payments?

The current room key unlocking feature with the MDE app is probably the most unreliable and frustrating experience around. I'm not sure why they continue to play that up given how awful of a user experience it is.

I was just saying to my gf, I hope this works better than the door opening, as that was "suboptimal" vs magicbands
