Starting on February 28th, 2023, guests staying at the Disneyland Resort hotels in Anaheim, California, will no longer be able to charge purchases to their room using their physical hotel room key. Instead, guests will need to use the Disneyland app to make purchases and charge them to their room.
The app will allow guests to link their hotel reservation and then select the “charge to room” option. Once the option is selected, a barcode will appear that can be scanned at select locations throughout the resort.
This change is part of the Disneyland Resort’s ongoing efforts to enhance the guest experience and streamline the payment process. By eliminating the need for physical hotel room keys to charge purchases, guests can use their mobile devices to easily make purchases and manage their spending.
In addition to the convenience factor, the switch to mobile payment may also help reduce contact and minimize the spread of germs in high-touch areas. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Disneyland Resort has implemented numerous health and safety measures to ensure the safety of guests and employees.
While this change may take some getting used to for guests, the Disneyland app is user-friendly and offers a variety of features beyond just the ability to make purchases. The app can also be used to check wait times for attractions, view show schedules, make dining reservations, and more.
The Disneyland Resort encourages all guests staying at the hotels to download the app and link their hotel reservation prior to arrival to ensure a seamless check-in process and to take advantage of the many features available in the app.
Overall, the transition to mobile payments is expected to be a positive change for both guests and the Disneyland Resort. By eliminating the need for physical hotel room keys for charges, the resort is furthering its commitment to providing guests with a safe, convenient, and memorable experience.
