Walt Disney World's Disney MagicMobile service has been updated to include a new payment feature for resort hotel guests and new virtual pass designs celebrating the 50th anniversary.

In addition to allowing you to enter the parks at the tap styles, enter attractions through the Lightning Lane, and connect to Disney PhotoPass, this latest update to MagicMoble allows you to charge food and merchandise purchases to the payment card on file at your Disney Resort hotel room during your stay. This charges the purchase to your room folio account, and not directly to the credit card.

New virtual pass designs feature the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection, including Mickey Mouse, Figment, Olaf and more.

As a reminder, Disney MagicMobile is an alternative to the MagicBand, using your own phone or watch.

You can read more about setting up MagicMobile in our earlier guide.

You can now use a reloadable card (like a 5% discounted Target Disney gift card or your Disney Visa rewards card) to pay off your resort bill and now get that 5% (or more with the Sam's black Friday gift card deal) ALL your purchases in addition to your resort bill.

I use the same card so this does nothing for me.

We were trying everything at food/wine - finally the CM just told me to remove it for fear of the angry mob forming behind me in line! 🤣

It charges back to your room folio account if you are a Disney hotel guest with that set up.

So does this charge direct to the card on file, or is it charging back to the room like when buying merchandise?

I have a friend who described the same issue ( I use iPhone). It seems the issue is you need to manually trigger Google Pay first and then tap the payment point. If you don’t do that MagicMobile intercepts the RFID read so Google Pay never sees it. I have to do exactly the same thing on iPhone or Watch I just double tap the watch button to trigger ApplePay and it works fine.

Since this was bumped... I never was able to add Google Pay when paying with mobile order, but just used one of my credit cards and it charged card directly. I was able to use Google Pay directly at stores/kiosks, but ONLY after I removed the magic mobile cards from my G-pay! Whenever I tried to pay, it kept automatically defaulting to the magic mobile card and not the card I wanted to use attached to G-pay. A lot of people were having that issue and cast members told me just to remove magic mobile card if not using (which I wasn't).

I wish the card on file could be a rewards card of a gift card or some sort of reloadable card, not tied to any account.

I read the post I was responding to as if she wanted to use Google Pay to pay with a credit card, not MM.

You never need to open the Google Pay app. To ensure that the MagicMobile pass is transmitted, don't unlock your phone. Just have the screen on and phone locked. Payment cards need the phone to be unlocked, but again, you still don't need to open the app unless you're paying with a card other than your default.

Thanks! Now I have both songs in my head…

You don't have to touch anything if the card you want to use is your default card. Just open the app. I can swipe to change card, or click on the "Walt Disney World" pass to use my phone like a MagicBand.
