- Disney has expanded the use of its Digital Key feature to all hotels at the Walt Disney World Resort including Disney Vacation Club properties. Digital Key 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. In addition, if you have checked in online, you may even use the digital key to bypass the need to visit the front desk, giving you the opportunity to go directly to their room when it is ready and start their vacation even faster. 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.

Concerning digital key and magic bands, bigger news will be when they stop shipping free magic bands. Disney knows lots of people love the magic bands and people think they are easier than using digital key on MDE smartphone app. Disney will be able to easily charge for magic bands and people will gladly pay a small fee for the convenience of not having to take out their smart device. Of course, magic bands were an interim solution until everybody has a smartphone within the next 10-15 years.
