Heading back to where the magic is at? Walt Disney World’s reopening amidst the pandemic has been anything but “normal”, but we can say first hand, the magic is still alive and well! Disney is constantly working to make things as safe, comfortable, and magical for guests as possible. Check out the latest as shared by DisneyParksBlog.


As we welcome guests back to Walt Disney World Resort hotels, there are many convenient technologies helping us deliver magical experiences.  Whether it’s limited-contact check-in, virtual chat, keyless room entry, or even virtual fireworks on demand, we offer features you may not know about. 

Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels now have virtual fireworks at their fingertips.  Our popular pre-recorded #DisneyMagicMoments viewing of one of the most spectacular nighttime shows ever created at Disney Parks – “Happily Ever After” is currently streaming on demand in resort rooms.

The benefits of using Disney technology at our resort hotels really begins before check-in with the My Disney Experience app.  When you arrive, the app feature allows you to skip the front desk!  After checking in online, you’ll receive a notification and can use a MagicBand or My Disney Experience digital key for limited-contact entry.

Unlock you Walt Disney World Resort hotel room with your phone

If you haven’t used it yet, the digital key is the latest in the evolution of keyless room entry.   The service turns a Bluetooth®-enabled phone into a digital key that unlocks a room door, hotel entrance gate and other common area doors requiring a key.  Check our earlier digital key story for details.  

During your stay, Disney technology also allows you to virtual chat with a resort cast member at your convenience.  This feature, which is also found in the My Disney Experience app, offers support nearly anytime—so there’s no need to visit the lobby or stand in line.

Of course, there are many more convenient technologies to be discovered  – so, be sure to download the latest version of My Disney Experience for your next stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.
