UPDATE 1/6/22: Disney Vacation Club has confirmed that the Magic Mobile Pass will act as the new Digital DVC Membership Card. Members can now visit the Disney Vacation Club website to learn more about the new Digital DVC Membership Card and watch a short video on how to access the card.
Back in November, DVC announced that the physical DVC Membership Cards were being replaced by digital ones. With the New Year upon us, the new Digital DVC Membership Cards are here! If you’ve previously downloaded the Magic Mobile Pass from My Disney Experience, you are already good to go. If not, here’s how to download your new Digital DVC Membership Card:
Step 1: Open My Disney Experience
Open the My Disney Experience App on your Apple or Android device and navigate to the three lines or “hamburger” menu located in the lower right corner.
Step 2: Navigate to Disney MagicMobile
From here, you will navigate to the section titled “Disney Magic Mobile”.
Step 3: Select/Create/Download Your Disney MagicMobile Pass
You will then have the option to create and download your Disney Magic Mobile Pass to your Apple or Android device. You can choose from a variety of styles and options for your pass. Have trouble finding the DVC design, or your affiliations or direct/non-direct ownership not appearing property? Try this fix!
Step 4: Access Your Pass
Once downloaded, your new pass can be accessed via the Apple Wallet or Google Pay application on your smartphone or smartwatch. Keep in mind that this card not only acts as your new DVC Membership Card but also contains your park tickets, annual pass information, and much more.
Reports throughout the parks are that current physical membership cards will be accepted throughout January. This will give members more time to transition to the new Digital DVC Membership Card.
Cast members will likely scan these new cards to determine if you are eligible for dining or merchandise discounts in the parks. Within the details of your downloaded card, you should find one of the following designations:
- DVC ND – “Non Direct” or “No Discount”
- DVC Y – “Direct” or “Yes Discount”
In order for the DVC affiliations to properly show, each member needs their own DVC login and their DVC linked to their own MDE account. Couples sharing accounts will result in someone not getting their affiliations linked. There are also some known glitches DVC is working through with grandfathered contracts not showing proper affiliations. This is another reason why Disney Vacation Club is still allowing the use of physical cards while the issue is resolved.
Disney Vacation Club has yet to release any official information about whether this is the final version of the new card. Still, it appears, based on some noticeable changes that happened on January 1st, that it likely is. Head over to DISboards.com for more discussion of the new cards.
