    Will my Apple Watch or iPhone work instead of a magic band on the Wish cruise

    Hi Jean,

    Welcome aboard planDisney! I know you must be excited about your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation. I’m so glad you sailed by with your question so that we can help you get in ship-shape!

    At this time, the iPhone or Apple Watch Magic Mobile feature does not work aboard the Disney Wish. You will need to utilize a DisneyBand+ or a MagicBand+ (from Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort) to unlock the magical functions this new service provides. With a DisneyBand+ (or MagicBand+), you will be able to enter your stateroom and Kids' Clubs and pay for merchandise hands-free. DisneyBand+ also makes it easier to capture your photos while on board. And be on the lookout for special interactions around the ship!

    Jean, you are going to fall in love with the Disney Wish! She is a beauty and filled with some exciting features. I love the various new lounges all around the ship. I can’t decide which is my favorite, Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge or The Bayou. Good thing they are right next door to each other so I can decide once I get there!

    And my top tip for sailing the Disney Wish is to take the Walking the Wish tour, which shares some of the impressive technology and magical touches that went into the making of the Disney Wish. To enjoy this tour, just check your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App when you board for the time and meeting location. In the meantime, you can explore this beautiful ship in this planDisney Pocket Guide to the Disney Wish!

    Thanks, again, for cruising by planDisney, Jean. I hope this information is useful to you! We would love to help you with any other questions you might have, so don’t hesitate to write back.

    Wishing you many magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
