No key? No problem.
Guests will soon be able to gain access to their hotel room through their smartphone.
A new feature on the My Disney Experience app will allow guests to hold their phone up against the lock of their door, which will then open it.
The digital key is new technology reminiscent of the old “Keys to the World” cards that guests used to use all over property in the 90’s and early 2000’s. This feature will also allow guests to unlock the hotel entrance gates, common area rooms, pools, fitness centers, elevators and club level lounges.
If guests don’t feel comfortable using the feature, they can opt-out of it on their check in day.
Disney’s Wilderness Lodge will be the first location to test the new feature.
