Disney MagicMobile service is a convenient and contactless way to access MagicBand features. Guests will be able to use their iPhone, Apple Watch, or other smart devices. This new service will be launching in phases later this year.
Guests will be able to create a Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience App. Most features will be available by just holding up your smart device near an access point- just like you would a magic band.
Magic Bands will still be around. Disney is even coming out with new bands. They will just no longer be complimentary. Guests may choose between the MagicMobile service or the Magic Bands. They can even use both and alternate between the two.
The existing digital room key feature will still be available. It will specifically be in the My Disney Experience App. This feature helps guests with their arrival by using online check in. They will be able to go directly to their Disney Resort hotel room, and use their phone to unlock the door.
Hotel guests will still be able to be able to pick up a Key to the World card at their convenience. Just head on up to the front desk.
