You can now enter Walt Disney World with just a touchless wave from your iPhone or Apple Watch.
Today, Disney announced the launch of its MagicMobile service, an alternative way to move around the Disney complex electronically, similar to the MagicBand. Apple users can simply add a MagicMobile pass to their Apple Wallet and enter using the NFC reader at the park gates.
To add a MagicMobile pass to Apple Wallet, download the My Disney Experience app. Register your park tickets purchased with your account. You can then create a MagicMobile digital pass with a variety of Disney-themed designs and simply add it to the Wallet app.
MagicMobile passes work like Apple Pay cards and support the express mode feature. This means that you don’t need to unlock or authenticate your iPhone. Just tap and go.
Families can add multiple passes to a single device, one for each person. While not available at launch, Disney says MagicMobile passes can also be used at Disney Resort hotels in the coming months.
MagicMobile passes are first available for iPhone and Apple Watch, and will soon be available on other devices. Disney says the passes are meant to be an alternate option, not a replacement, to the MagicBand.
