    Can I use my iPhone instead of an Apple Watch or a Disney Magic Band to get into the parks at Disney World?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    As an avid Apple user, I have loved how well integrated the Disney systems are with their devices. Personally I have been using my Apple Watch as my entry pass device lately, but yes, you can just use the MagicMobile feature via the My Disney Experience App on your iPhone to get into the theme parks. I have done it many times, and it has worked flawlessly every time. 

    When you open your My Disney Experience App on your phone, if you are not already on the Menu page just tap on the three horizontal line icon in the lower right. You should see MagicMobile as one of the options. After tapping on that, you can see any passes that are ready to use and can also access an instructional video that shows you what you can do, and how to set it up, if it is not already showing in that screen. 

    On your park day, for your pass you can just use Express Mode as you approach the turnstiles. You don't have to open or unlock your phone. just tap it by one of the access points and you should be good to enter the magic!

    BONUS TIP #1
    You will also see your park entry in your Apple Wallet App, just like you would a credit card or concert ticket. 

    BONUS TIP #2
    If you are managing tickets for others in your party, you will need to open your phone to access your Apple Wallet to scan them in as well. 

    BONUS TIP #3
    Did you know that within the App, and your Apple Wallet, you can actually personalize your park ticket? Mine has a Disney's Polynesian Village Resort theme!

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
