    Guests visiting Walt Disney World will soon be able to use a new feature on their My Disney Experience app, a digital key.

    This will first be available only to guests staying at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge but is then expected to expand to more Walt Disney World hotels. This new feature in the My Disney Experience app will allow guests to quickly unlock their hotel room using a digital key on their mobile devices, providing them with another room entry option apart from using their MagicBand.

    Guests will also be able to 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.

    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 simply hold their phone against the door lock.

    Bluetooth enabled mobile devices with the latest version of the My Disney Experience app will be needed to take advantage of a digital key for room entry. The MagicBand can still be used for all other uses including park entry, FastPass+ redemption and room charges.
