Disney unveiled a new and exciting My Disney Experience app feature: a digital key. Coming soon to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, a new feature in the My Disney Experience app will allow guests to unlock their hotel room, pool, fitness centers, elevators, and club level lounges using a digital key on their mobile devices. The new digital key option is similar to the offering with the MagicBand, the unique all-in-one device that effortlessly connects the vacation choices guests make in My Disney Experience. Guests can use either or both options to enter their room during their stay.
If you have checked in online you can even use your digital key to bypass the front desk, and go directly to your room when it is ready and start your vacation even faster.
So how does it work? To use your digital key, you opt in and activate the feature on your check-in day through a brief set up process in the app. To enter the room, you tap the “Unlock Door” button and then simply hold your phone against the door lock. The video below will show you the feature in action.
