Earlier today Walt Disney World announced the next evolution of Disney MyMagic+ and the successor to the MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile.
Disney Magic Mobile will be launching in phases starting later this year. The service will be 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. Most features will be available by just holding up the smart device near an access point, just like you do with a MagicBand.
Disney said that the service and its features will roll out first on Apple devices.
Guests may choose to use Disney MagicMobile service or a MagicBand, and can alternate between the two for added flexibility.
