    Hello, can MobileMagic on the iPhone and Watch be used to enter the resort Pool Gates and use to access Lightning Lanes? We have tried these in the past and didn't have any success?

    Hello Brandon!

    Welcome to planDisney! Technology can be so convenient but when it doesn't work it can sure be disappointing. I'm sorry that you did not have success with using Disney MagicMobile Service on your last trip but let's see if I can help you out. 

    Since you mentioned that you have an iPhone and Apple Watch, make sure it has the latest iOS and that the My Disney Experience app is updated. As of November 2021, new updates were relayed to us via the Disney Parks Blog which said that you can use your Disney MagicMobile pass to enter theme parks, connect to Disney PhotoPass, charge food and merchandise, and enter attractions through the virtual queue or Lightning Lane entrances.

    Now, while the My Disney Experience app lets you access your room it seems as per a recent conversation with a Cast Member it won't get you into the pool. At this time a MagicBand or room key card is the only thing that will work to access the pool gate. 

    I am glad that I was able to give you some partially good news but if you have any difficulties when you arrive make sure to speak to a Cast Member. I hope while you are there that you visit the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival which is my favorite festival! It's such a beautiful time of year at EPCOT and the outdoor kitchens have some dishes that are both beautiful as they are delicious. 

    I hope you have a wonderful time and let me know if you have any more questions!
