    Is there a way to use the FastPass on Apple Watch so that you don’t need a magicband and watch?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there Kylie and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    All the new technology at Walt Disney World Resort makes the vacation experience more magical. No more dashing for paper FastPasses or having to walk to each attraction to find out the wait time. In the palm of your hand, you can see wait times, get turn-by-turn directions, make FastPass+ selections, Mobile Order food, get show times and even Shop Disney Parks. Communicating with others using an Apple Watch is so easy at Walt Disney World Resort instead of constantly pulling out your smartphone. I think the only Disney character concerned about the Apple Watch is Snow White. She's had bad luck with apples.

    As of now, the My Disney Experience mobile app is not compatible with the Apple Watch and FastPass+ attraction access still needs a MagicBand or Admission Card. However, there is a hybrid solution to add some pixie dust to your Apple Watch and MagicBand. An online search for "MagicBand and Apple Watch" will reveal sliders that the MagicBand Icon (the pod in the center) can fit into and then slide on the Apple Watch. I call this the Enchanted Apple Watch.

    Mickey is always expanding and developing new technology. If the Apple Watch becomes compatible with the My Disney Experience mobile app, you will hear it first from the Disney Parks Blog.

    Kylie, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
