ORLANDO, Fla. – Walt Disney World has rolled its new MagicMobile service.

The contactless service provides a new way to enter Walt Disney World theme parks by using eligible iPhones, Apple Watch or Google Pay enabled Android phones.

“Guests may choose to use Disney MagicMobile service or a MagicBand, pick whichever option works best for you during your visit,” leaders described on a blog post. “You can even use both and alternate between the two for added flexibility.”

Disney officials said guests can create a Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience app and add it to the Wallet app on iPhone or the digital wallet on other smart devices. Guests can customize their pass by choosing from several Disney-themed designs that animate upon use. Some designs are special for annual passholders and Disney Vacation Club members.

The new service is the latest piece of innovative technology rolled out in recent years to help consumers at Walt Disney World.

MagicBands were introduced at Walt Disney World in 2013, and in 2018, officials added a digital key feature to the My Disney Experience app that allowed guests to access hotel room doors with their smart phone devices. Walt Disney World is still offering “Key to the World” cards at hotel front desks. The physical cards work the same as a theme park tickets or room keys.
