    What is the oldest series of Apple watches that works with all the magic band features? Thanks

    Hey Cindy and welcome to planDisney. I enjoy walking into the theme parks with just my Apple Watch on my wrist as I tap my way through the theme park and Lightning Lane entrances. It just makes life a little easier. Thanks, Mickey!

    When Disney MagicMobile came on the scene a couple of years ago it was long anticipated and Guests were widely excited to use the current technology. The Android or Apple device requires a minimum operating system. If your device has or can be upgraded to these requirements then you will be in great shape.

    * iOS devices: Requires iOS 14.4 and later
    * Apple Watch devices: Requires iOS 7.3 and later
    * Android devices: Requires 8.0 and later

    planDisney Pro Tip: There are Disney PhotoPass Service Attraction Shots that communicate RFID with Disney MagicBands but not with Apple and Android Devices. Examples are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Haunted Mansion, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. If you want to capture these pictures be sure to have a MagicBand.

    Cindy, one last suggestion. If you are at Disney Springs, stop by the Marketplace Co-op D-Tech on Demand to customize a Disney Apple Watch Band. They are awesome. Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
