    If we have the Disney magic mobile on our Apple Watch in express mode will our photos download to our account like when we use our magic band? I’m not sure that I want to buy new magic bands, but I don’t want to miss out on photos from certain rides. Thank

    Heigh-Ho Kathleen,

    Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney. We are a panel of guests, who amongst us have a wealth of Disney and Walt Disney World knowledge ready to share with our fellow Guests. Between us, we have traveled to Walt Disney World more times than can be counted or as Buzz says, “To Infinity and Beyond.” 

    Disney’s MagicMobile Service rolled out earlier this year on Guests’ My Disney Experience app. Guests who have an Apple or Google Pay enabled Android device are able to create a digital pass to store in their device’s wallet. Essentially this turns your device into a Disney MagicBand, FINALLY!  I don’t know about you but while I love collecting the colors and magical designs Disney MagicBands have to offer, I LOVE knowing now my Apple watch has some similar features as my Disney MagicBands. In other words, YES, all you will need to do when a PhotoPass photographer snaps your picture is have them scan your digital pass. Eventually, Disney’s MagicMobile service will allow for Guests, staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, to have charging privileges and open their resort room but this is still in the works.

    I hope this information has helped and stay up to date with exciting Disney News by following the Disney Parks Blog and check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) for more Disney Magic.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

Meet the Panelist: Amy, Virginia

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
