Walt Disney World announced Thursday that it’s preparing to roll out a new MagicMobile service later in 2021.
Similar to other contactless payment options, will allow guests to use their smart devices for theme park entry, unlocking their resort doors, paying for food and items on property and more.
Guests will be able to create a Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience app said Disney officials.
“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.”Disney Parks Blog
Currently, Disney’s MagicBands perform many of these services. MagicBands were introduced at Walt Disney World in 2013, and in 2018, officials added a digital key feature to the My Disney Experience app that allowed guests to access hotel room doors with their smart phone devices. This new service will combine all these onto your SmartPhone.
MagicBand fans take heart, the bands will still be available and Disney announced they will continue to release new designs.
Disney said the MagicMobile service will roll out in phases beginning first with Apple devices.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
