Curious to hear from those who have tried using your Apple Watch in place of a Magic Band. Does it work as well as Disney says it should? Trying to minimize my he amount of “bands” I need to wear!
thanks for the info, this might finally tip me over to buying an Apple WatchI would like to use my Apple Watch, but it's TOO old. I have what's basically a Series 0 (original version) and Disney MagicMobile requires a Series 3 or newer. Like the PP, I do use Apple Pay without issue.
Room access is not yet available using the Apple Watch. You can use an iPhone, but you have to launch the MDE mobile app each time you want to unlock the room door. Coming later this year with iOS 15, Apple is adding support for Hotel Keys which will make unlocking your room door much easier. Disney was announced as a supporting partner for Hotel Keys.
I forgot about PhotoPass since I don't normally pay much attention to that but you are right, I do get all the on-ride photos I would expect to get.You can also use it for photo pass photographers which works well. It does not work well for on ride photos as it frequently links other guests to my account
Wait....we can use our Apple watch to gain access to the parks?!
Yes, as long as it's a Series 3 or newer running the most current version of WatchOS.Wait....we can use our Apple watch to gain access to the parks?!
