    Can IWatch Ultra open doors

    Hello Alberto!

    Welcome to planDisney! I love the convenience of technology in everyday life and especially on vacation! 

    While Walt Disney World Resort has advanced quite a bit with the My Disney Experience Mobile App and MagicBand+ an Apple Watch of any kind will not be able to unlock Walt Disney World Resort room doors. You can use the My Disney Experience Mobile App, MagicBand+, or Key to the World Card. Don't fret! Your Apple Watch Ultra can still be amazing by using the Disney MagicMobile Service! Make sure your tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account and then from the app click on the three stacked lines on the bottom right. Select "Disney MagicMobile" and then the "+" sign on the top right. Once you add it to your mobile wallet your Apple Watch should allow you to enter any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks as well let you enter Lightning Lane entrances, and connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account.

    This makes me want to take the plunge and get an Apple Watch. Until then, I will see how my experience is with MagicBand+. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you can purchase a discounted band before you arrive. The selection sometimes changes every day so if you find one you like make sure to grab it. That's my motto with any Disney merchandise! Don't be like me that day I did not purchase that beautiful Spirit Jersey only to never see it again. 

    I hope this helps and if you have any more questions please free to let us know!

    Happy Planning!
