Fans of Walt Disney World will already know that the MagicBand electronic wristband pass is pretty cool, but now Apple users can look forward to being able to use their iPhone and Apple Watch instead.

Disney has announced that users will be able to create a Disney MagicMobile pass that will be added to their Wallet for use on iPhone and Apple Watch.

Using the passes will be a case of putting your iPhone or Apple Watch near a sensor and having the magic happen.

Disney says that we can expect this all to kick off later this year.

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.

Alongside the MagicMobile pass, the Wallet app is also where you can keep all of your Apple Pay cards as well as your Apple Card and more.
