The Disney MagicBand is a bracelet that incorporates an NFC chip that allows users to use all facilities company parks, without having to be aware of carrying cash, a credit card or even a room key in addition to other functions.
Disney has announced MagicBand Mobile for iPhone and Apple Watch. This platform allows users of an iPhone or an Apple Watch create a pass in the Wallet application
As reported by Walt Disney World Resort, this new feature makes each visit is even easier and smoother, especially when arriving at the hotel, since it is not necessary to go to the reception at all times to collect the corresponding MagicBand, we only need our iPhone or Apple Watch.
No matter if a family can opt for this new feature, this do not eliminate the other, so that several members of the same family can use the Apple device and others the usual MagicBand.
We appreciate that little by little, Apple opens the use of the NFC chip to third parties. The first to have the opportunity to use the NFC chip in the iPhone and Apple Watch were the shipping companies. Vehicles will also soon, and by the end of the year, Disney theme parks.
DisneyBand Mobile will initially be released for Apple devices and by 2022, it will be extended to the Android payment ecosystem through Google Play, Samsung Pay and the rest of electronic payment services.
