    It has been 2 years since Android was added to disney mobile. Galaxy watches are now equipped with Google pay which already holds park passes. When will we be able to use our Galaxy watches Like apple watches when it comes to park entrance.

    Hey there, Dakota!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question about this long-awaited tech update. While I'm #teamApple, I have many Disney-loving friends who own Android smartwatches and are ready to tap into the magic, too.

    As you know, with Disney MagicMobile, you can link your theme park tickets to your device and even charge purchases to your Resort hotel folio. At the moment, this is available to both Apple and Android (Google-Pay-enabled phone) users. But Disney MagicMobile doesn't work on Android smartwatches yet. Oh, bother!

    While we all await for this update to come to fruition, you're still able to use Disney MagicMobile using your smartphone and the My Disney Experience app. Dakota, you'll want to log into the app, select the three horizontal lines on the bottom right, and create a pass for quick access.

    About a month ago, I damaged my Apple Watch, so my go-to way to enter the parks and scan into Lightning Lanes was donezo. Eek! Because I like being able to wear my access on my wrist, I used my handy dandy MagicBand+ in the meantime. This is a great option in lieu of using your Galaxy watch until Disney adds the functionality. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: I definitely recommend that you keep an eye out on the Disney Parks Blog and the Disney Parks social media accounts for any theme park tech announcements. Fingers crossed that you'll hear something soon, Dakota! 

    Please feel free to reach out to us again with any other Disney vacation planning questions. I'm wishing upon a star that good news before your October vacation. 

    Magic always,
