Disney World's MagicMobile service is now available for Android users following the initial rollout to Apple devices last month.

To use MagicMobile on Android, the device must be Google Pay enabled.

Disney MagicMobile service is a convenient and contactless way to access MagicBand features like theme park entry through the power of your own devices. Most features are available by just holding up your smart device near an access point, just like you do with a MagicBand. You can choose to use Disney MagicMobile service or a MagicBand, and can alternate between the two for added flexibility. 

Current functionality includes:

  • Enter theme parks (with a valid theme park reservation and valid admission)
  • Enter parking lots
  • Connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account
  • Gain access to the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
  • Access to Magical Express

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

You have to have a debit or credit card attached to your Apple Pay app for it to work.

I have same error but two factor is turned on. I've gone ahead and logged a ticket with Disney.

The cast member most likely just scans the QR code currently.

Does anyone know if this is ready for Rise of the Resistance boarding pass redemption yet?

Can’t wait to use my Apple Watch as a magicband!

Nice to see that they'll be rolling this out to us lowly Android users later this month! 🤗

I would assume this as well. But, I'm not sure how many people realize this, especially those who are accustomed to just using the MagicBands. Disney's web-site for it says the following: Simply hold your iPhone, Apple Watch, or other smart device near an access point when entering the parks [URL='https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/faq/my-disney-experience/use-magic-mobile/?CMP=ILC-DPFY21Q2wo0325200014A']or using other available features[/URL], just like you do with a MagicBand. With Express Mode on iPhone and Apple Watch, guests do not even need to wake or unlock their Apple device, or open up the app, to use their Disney MagicMobile pass. As a reminder, valid park admission and a park reservation are required for park entry and must be linked to your account. [/QUOTE]

Great to hear. Now I just have to hope they eventually expand to Fitbit. As it stands, attaching the magic band puck to my watch is still more convenient. Stinks that I'll have to buy a new one every 2 years to retain ride photos, but maybe they'll get it added to all smart watch systems before that happens.

Interesting. While I don't stay on-property all that often as a local, I've never received cards but my last stay was in Sept, 2020 before they stopped sending MB's

I actually got cards mailed to me about 2 weeks ago for my upcoming trip. Then magicbands after that (ordered). Surprised me to see them shipping cards.

This was forever ago I think and probably a tickets-only transaction but I have gotten cards in the mail. I just assumed that is what would happen if I declined the 5$ fee they now ask for the bands. Either way, I think I'll be stopping by the front desk as I'm not sure she will appreciate the phone fumbling every day on the way in.

I’ve never seen them send cards through the mail the way they did Magic Bands. You should be able to get a card for your tickets and room admission at any Guest Services location or your resort front desk throughout the property? If you‘re admission tickets are showing up in MDE, they’ll be able to issue physical cards easily for you at no charge. Then, if you want to purchase Magic bands, you can do that.
