3 Changes Coming to My Disney Experience You Need to Know About

3. Digital Key to be added to My Disney Experience in a few weeks

Disney’s new Digital Key feature will be rolled out in the next few days as a new feature within the existing My Disney Experience app. Guests with hotel reservations will be able to access their “Digital Key” from within the app on their check-in date, and will be able to use their NFC-compatible phone quickly unlock their hotel room using their smartphone.

In addition to being able to unlock doors with this app feature, guests can also use their digital key inside My Disney Experience to unlock the hotel entrance gate and common area doors requiring a key, which may include pools, fitness centers, elevators and club level lounges.

Testing will begin in the next few weeks at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, where the feature will debut first, before becoming available at other locations. Guests who want to use their digital key, will need to opt in manually and activate the feature on their check-in day through a brief set up process in the app on their check-in date. Once the setup of the digital key is complete, guests can proceed directly to their room, open the My Disney Experience app, and then tap the “Unlock Door” button (conveniently located on the app’s home screen) while holding their phone against the door lock to gain entry. You can check out a video of this new feature in action above.
