    I have a Samsung galaxy active 2 watch, can I now use it as a magic band?

    Hi there, Gemma!

    Thanks so much for stopping over with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! It sounds like you're planning a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, and I'm happy to help you to make the most of your experience in the theme parks.

    Gemma, Disney MagicMobile service is available through the My Disney Experience mobile app and offers many of the same conveniences that Disney bands (MagicBand+) provide to Guests, like theme park entry, linking Disney PhotoPass images, and charging to Disney Resort hotel folios! Your device should be eligible for use with Disney MagicMobile service if it meets the following compatibility requirements:

    • Bluetooth technology is enabled
    • Operating system 8.0 or later (Android)
    • Compatible with Google Pay
    Before your holiday, ensure that your entitlements and reservations are linked to your My Disney Experience account. When you arrive in the United States, I encourage you to download the My Disney Experience mobile app and set up Disney MagicMobile pass in your phone's digital wallet. If your smartwatch is compatible, you'll be able to access your digital pass on your watch as well! If not, you'll still be able to utilize Disney MagicMobile service on your phone. During your visit, if you decide you want a Disney band instead, you'll be able to find them available for purchase at almost any shop throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Gemma, I'm wishing you a most magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. Please feel free to reach out to planDisney again with any more planning questions you may have - we're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
