    To set up Disney Magic Mobile do I have to attach a method of payment to my device?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Emmanuel, we thank you for your loyalty!

    I absolutely love utilizing Disney MagicMobile Service as one method of accessing Disney magic and many entitlements during my visits. You are also welcome to use your Key to the World Card (which you can request at check-in), which will contain your valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission and your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel reservation information. You can also access Disney magic with a valid MagicBand or MagicBand+ device, which you can pre-purchase in advance of your arrival via My Plans - Dining, Resort Hotel and Tickets beneath the My Disney Experience planning tab in your Disney account. Or, you can purchase a MagicBand or MagicBand+ upon arrival and a Cast Member will help link the device to your Disney account to manage your planning.

    By updating or adding an accepted, valid form of payment to your Disney account you will then facilitate charges to your Disney Resort Hotel Guest Room folio, you will also be able to pay for any Disney PhotoPass additions, you will be able to purchase the Disney Genie+ service ticket option during your visit, pay for Mobile Food & Beverage Orders, and any other allowable purchases during your visit. Setting up a payment method will afford you greater convenience overall.

    Emmanuel, just remember to link any Walt Disney World Resort purchases to your Disney account, such as Disney PhotoPass or theme park tickets, for example, and that you will need an advance Disney Park Pass – Theme Park Reservation for each valid day of theme park admission for all in your travel party.

    Disney MagicMobile Service will enable you to use Express Mode on your mobile device by holding your mobile device to the contactless reader. You will not have to unlock your device or provide authentication via a Face or Touch ID or related passcode, which really makes your day flow smoothly.

    Another benefit of updating information on your Disney account is that you will receive applicable offers, news and announcements related to your residence location and all Disney affiliations.

    I find the Disney MagicMobile pass very convenient to access using my mobile device, or my Apple Watch and saves me from having to pull out my Key to the World Card for every little detail during my visit to Walt Disney World Resort including unlocking my Disney Resort Hotel Guest Room door. For further inquiries related to Disney MagicMobile Service please contact Walt Disney World Resort - My Disney Experience, MagicBands, and MagicBand+ for direct and detailed support, which I, as a fellow Guest cannot provide.

    Emmanuel, I hope this information is helpful and aids with your decision of how to enjoy your entitlements during your visit to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Best Disney Wishes!
