MyMagic+, introduced at Disney World in 2014, will expand to other Disney parks over the next few years.
The program won’t likely be the same at all parks, however. Disney World attracts people from all over the globe, and MyMagic+ therefore caters to guests who stay onsite. MyMagic+ — which is a combination of the MagicBand, FASTPASS+ and My Disney Experience (an app for smartphones) — allows guests to make dining reservations, charge expenses and even unlock hotel room doors via one tool.
In comparison to Disney World, Disneyland sees mostly locals from California and neighboring states, many of whom choose not to stay onsite. Therefore, MyMagic+ at Disneyland might not feature the ability to unlock hotel room doors, but instead offer another incentive. It’s unclear whether or not Disneyland will receive MyMagic+ next, however.
As Disney evolves with new technology, Disney World has also begun to accept payments via Apple Pay and Google Wallet.
