The Walt Disney World Resort is introducing a brand new feature of the My Disney Experience app. The new digital key offering will allow guests to use their app to unlock their hotel room at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge seamlessly to add ease and flexibility to your resort experience.
Guests will also be able to use their digital key to unlock the hotel entrance gate and common area doors that require the use of a key, including pools, fitness centers, elevators and club level lounges. Those who have checked in online may even be able to use their digital key to bypass the need to visit the front desk and go directly to their room when it is ready.
So how does it work? To use the digital key, Guests can choose to opt in and activate the feature on their check-in day through a brief set up process in the app. To enter your room, Guests will need to tap the “Unlock Door” button and then simply hold their phone against the door lock.
Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices will need to have latest version of the My Disney Experience app to be able to take advantage of a digital key for room entry.
Here is a video to show you how this whole thing works:
The addition of the digital key represents the latest evolution of keyless room entry for the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels.
While the Digital Key feature is initially rolling out at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, it will be rolling out to additional Walt Disney World Resort Hotels in the near future.
