CONFIRMED: Unlock Your Hotel Room Door Via Bluetooth Using the My Disney Experience App

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Today the Disney Parks Blog confirmed what we told you all the way back in the beginning of January. Using the My Disney Experience app, guests will now be able to unlock their hotel room door with their smartphone via Bluetooth.

Coming soon to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, a 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 seamless room entry option that brings added ease and flexibility to their experience.

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. 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 and start their vacation even faster.

Guests will still be able to use their MagicBand to unlock the door, so the option to use the My Disney Experience app is in addition to MagicBands. And, like MagicBands, guests will be able to unlock doors to common areas such as pools and laundry facilities, using the app as well.

To enable the use of this new “digital key,” guests will have to activate the feature at check-in through the app. Then, to enter their room, guests tap the “Unlock Door” button and hold their phone up to the door lock, the same way the smartphone door unlock feature works at many other hotels.
