    Can you use Magic Mobile (or some other part of the My Disney Experience app) to enter the parks without using a digital wallet? Some members of our family don't wish to set up a digital wallet on their phone. Thank you.

    Hello there, Ruth!

    Like some of our favorite Star Wars droids, I love answering technical questions to help Guests prepare for a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Now, I better get answering because your vacation will be here faster than Chewie can make the jump into hyperspace. 

    Ruth, in order to take advantage of the Disney MagicMobile service, everyone in your party will need to add the MagicMobile pass to their digital wallet; however, you can add Disney MagicMobile passes to your wallet for party members you manage. If some members of your party don’t want to set up a digital wallet on their phone, they have two other options. 

    They can either link their tickets to a MagicBand/MagicBand+, or you can pick up a physical ticket from a ticket window at any of the four theme parks. They can use the MagicBand or physical ticket just like you would use the Disney MagicMobile service. For example, as long as they are linked to your ticket, you can use them to scan into the theme park entrance or check into virtual queues or Lighting Lane entrances. 

    My personal favorite is the MagicBand because it is totally hands-free. Did you know that you can use these modes of entry to link Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account, too? I hope these tips sprinkle a bit of pixie dust or the force your way. 

    May the magic be with you!
