In a recent blog post, Disney announced that the company is working on bringing support for entry to its theme parks using devices such as iPhone 12 and Apple Watch Series 6.
Disney said, “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.”
According to the company, visitors will be able to choose either the new services or the company’s won MagicBand in order to enter different areas. Additionally, visitors will be able to choose both and switch their preferences.
At the moment however, it’s unclear when visitors will be able to use the new services as Disney revealed that it the new options will come later this year.
