Disney announced that it would bring contactless payments to its resorts before Christmas, and is now rolling out the feature on December 24. Visitors heading to Walt Disney World will now be able to pay using Apple Pay from their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
Last year, Disney rolled out MyMagic+, through which customers could charge purchases made within the resort to their hotel room. The technology leveraged RFID and made use of wearable bands called MagicBand, which allowed customers to interact with contactless payments gateways within the resort.
Disney has stated that support for other forms of payments like Apple Pay and Google Wallet are designed to make it more convenient for customers visiting the resort to purchase merchandise and other goods. Here's where support for Apple Pay is currently available within the resort:
Initially, most stores, quick service restaurants, bars and ticket sales booths will be included. Any locations that use portable payment terminals, such as table service restaurants, will be added later.
The locations that accept Apple Pay will feature the EMVCo symbol. Disney is expected to bring contactless payments to the Disneyland Resort in 2015.
