    Hi i have a smartwach from samsung a watch classic 6, my question is can i link with photo maker instead of using or purchase a magic band?

    Hi Roberto!

    Welcome to planDisney. I just love that you are already thinking about capturing your all magical vacation memories during your visit next month. I love snapping photos of the beautiful park details just as much as I posing for Disney PhotoPass pictures with my family all around the parks. Purchasing Memory Maker is a wonderful way to make sure your entire travel party gets to "say cheese" together each time. There have been a few recent additions that make this purchase even more magical than before. 

    While you should be able to set up a MagicMobile pass on your smartphone, unfortunately, you won't be able to use your Samsung smartwatch with the same functionality. I reached out to a Cast Member who confirmed that only Apple Watches can have a MagicMobile pass set up in the wallet to use for park entry and linking photos at this time. My pal Kaitlin shared a similar answer with another guest earlier this year.

    But don't worry if you won't have a MagicBand or MagicBand+ during your trip. There are some other options you can use to ensure you can link your photos. If you are able to set up a MagicMobile pass on your phone you should be able to present that to the PhotoPass Photographers to scan and link each time. Alternatively, you can request a photo card from the Cast Member to scan each time your photos are taken and use that to link to your Memory Maker purchase.

    Keep in mind that attraction photos will not automatically link to your account without a MagicBand or MagicBand+. You'll find preview walls at the exits for select attractions where you'll need to scan your photo card, park admission card or MagicMobile pass to link the photo. There aren't preview walls on attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean or TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park. If those photos are important to you I'd recommend purchasing a MagicBand to wear during the ride experience. Tron Lightcycle / Run also has a really fun video in addition to photos taken from 2 different angles. We always love re-watching and seeing everyone's unique expressions.

    I hope this was helpful Roberto. If we can answer additional questions please don't hesitate to come back and see us again. Panelists are also available to answer questions in Spanish as well if you prefer.

    Magic and memories,
