Disney’s brand-new MagicMobile service is here!
Disney announced the new tech earlier this month — it essentially turns your phone into your MagicBand! You’re able to use your smart device (and yup, that includes your Apple Watch!) to tap into the parks, link your PhotoPass photos, and more. And while Disney stated that the service is rolling out in phases throughout 2021, it is already live for ALL Apple users.
You may have to delete and re-download the app to see it. Or you may need to force quit the app — and even then, not everyone has access to the service just yet. For now, it’s only available on Apple devices. So, if you’ve got an iPhone or an Apple Watch, We’re walkin’ you through exactly how to set up your MagicMobile pass, so you can get started with the service ASAP!
Start by searching for MagicMobile in the search bar of your My Disney Experience app.
And if you don’t feel like searchin’, you can find it on the app’s main menu! Hit “Disney MagicMobile Pass” to pull it up.
If you already have the feature, you’ll see this screen. Tap “Set Up Your Pass” to get started!
Okay, here’s where the fun starts. There are TONS of different options for you to customize your pass! You can choose designs with ear hats or inspired by each of the 4 parks.
And for the food-lovers out there (trust us, we GET you), there are some snack options, too! That Dole Whip is lookin’ REAL good.
There’s even an Annual Passholder-exclusive design!
You can then link each person on your family and friends list to their own MagicMobile pass (we went with that Dole Whip, of course!). Your personal pass will be in Express Mode, which means you can access it at touch points without even unlocking your phone. You’ll have to manually pull up your family and friends’ passes in your digital wallet to use them.
After you pick your fancy new passes, remember to add them to your digital wallet when you see the prompt to add it! You’ll need to see the “Complete” screen to verify your passes are all set up correctly.
And that’s all there is to it! Pretty simple set-up, right?! We were able to use our MagicMobile pass to tap right into Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Success! (Also, we couldn’t help but switch over to that Mickey bar design. Flexibility is key, right?!).
We’ll keep you posted as more MagicMobile features get rolled out. As always, stay tuned to DFB for the latest Disney news and updates!
