The My Disney Experience App has already transformed guest’s visit to Disney by allowing your mobile device to check park wait times, book FastPass+, book dining, check maps, find characters and even order food! This week, all guests staying at a Disney Resort will have the ability to open their resort room door and common area resort doors directly with the app! This feature has already been provided in the prior week to guests staying at Wilderness Lodge, Copper Creek Villas and Cabins at Wilderness Lodge, and Boulder Ridge Villas at Wilderness Lodge. The feature worked so well for those guests that Disney rolled out the feature to all guest rooms.
To unlock the door, you will need to open the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device, then open the resort room reservation and select “unlock door”. Finally, place your mobile device against the door lock. If you prefer to use a Magic Band, you can still continue to use it to open the doors and other features.
