Digital Key to expand to all Walt Disney World Resort hotels

Aug 22, 2018 in "MyMagic+"

Disney has today announced that it will expand the use of its Digital Key feature to all hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort including Disney Vacation Club properties.

Digital Key launched at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge earlier this year,  and is a new feature in the My Disney Experience app that allows guests to quickly unlock their hotel room using a digital key on their mobile devices.

Guests can also use their digital key to unlock the hotel entrance gate and common area doors requiring a key, which may include pools, fitness centers, elevators and club level lounges. Arriving travel parties that have checked in online may even use their digital key to bypass the need to visit the front desk, giving them the opportunity to go directly to their room when it is ready and start their vacation even faster.

The feature represents the latest evolution of keyless room entry, which Disney began offering with the MagicBand. Guests may use either or both options to enter their room during their stay.

To use their digital key, guests can opt in and activate the feature on their check-in day through a brief set up process in the app. To enter their room, guests tap the “Unlock Door” button and then hold their phone against the door lock. Check out the video below to see aDigital Key in action.

Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices with the latest version of the My Disney Experience app are required to take advantage of a digital key for room entry.
