Apple Pay and other contactless payments to be available this week at Walt Disney World

Dec 21, 2014 in "MyMagic+"

Staying true to the previously announced "before Christmas," the Walt Disney World Resort will begin accepting Apple Pay on December 24 2014.

The inclusion of Apple Pay payments will allow Walt Disney World guests using iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ and the soon-to-be released Apple Watch to make payments quickly and with the highest level of security.

Leveraging the RFID infrastructure deployed as part of MyMagic+, Walt Disney World will also accept other contactless payments, such as Google Wallet and contactless RFID credit cards. 

Initially, most stores, quick service restaurants, bars and ticket sales booths will be included. Any locations that use portable payment terminals, such as table service restaurants, will be added later.

To identify payment locations that accept Apple Pay and contactless payments, look for the EMVCo symbol, which is a series of curved lines, similar to a WiFi signal strength meter on many devices.

The Disneyland Resort is also expected to come online with Apple Pay in 2015.
