Ability to Unlock Your Guest Room Door with Smart Phone, Digital Key, Rolled-Out to Disney’s Pop Century and Art of Animation Resorts

Back in April Disney unveiled the ‘Digital Key’ feature coming to MyDisneyExperience. This cool new tool allows guests to unlock their guest room door at their resort with the MyDisneyExperience app using Bluetooth technology.

Check out our video below to see us trying out “Digital Key” at Port Orleans French Quarter:

  1. Much to do about NOTHING!

    Anyone who thinks it is exciting or something to look forward to, requires a reality check in life.

    There was nothing wrong with having a room key and far easier for guests.

    1. Short sighted much?

      I have this at home, and it’s great. No need to drag out your keys, as the door unlocks when you get close.

      You can either accept change and ride the wave or deny it and get left in the wake.

      1. So you walk near your door and it opens…. and when you walk near your door and don’t necessarily want to open it, it opens anyway……?

        accept the change when it is change for the better…

        deny it and get left behind…? YEP, that’s the selection i choose.

        when something is stupid we don’t have to go along with it…!

        I opt out.

        1. It’s ok grandpa, your opinion isn’t valid anymore anyway. Now go take your pills and get ready for your diaper change.

          1. Intelligent people and intelligent cultures RESPECT the wisdom from those who are older. For the record, I am NOT a Grandfather, and my heath is top notch. Yet you sit there and want to attempt to give a “smart reply” with insults of calling someone old, and sick requiring pills, and requiring diapers. You have NO intelligent response to the stupidity of WHY anyone should be “excited” about unlocking a door using a cell phone instead of simply using a room key…. Perhaps try to learn some respect and see if you can post an intelligent opinion on point to the subject.

    2. Broken record randy with the same old whining. Thanks for the input, grandpa. Looks like you’re having another “senior moment”. Bless you’re heart.

      1. Same whining…???

        When something is idiotic the first time, it is just as stupid the second and third time….

        Every time they add this to another Hotel it becomes News??

        Even MORE ridiculous.
