Today Disney announced that the Disneyland Resort App will now bring more magic to your fingertips. Here are the new features coming to the app.
New! Personalized Home Screen
The Disneyland app is more personalized and this is just the start! There is now a personal greeting that says “Hello (your name)! ” and you can choose one of your favorite characters to add to the main page banner by clicking on the Mickey circle icon.
Coming Soon! Unlock Your Hotel Room With Digital Key
Earlier this spring, the Disneyland Resort introduced a new online check-in service for our hotel guests to save you time upon arrival at the Front Desk. Coming soon, it will be even easier, as you simply go straight to your room with online check-in and our digital key!
The digital key will be optional, and here are the steps for using the digital key:
- Link your hotel reservation to your Disney account in the Disneyland app or online.
- Complete online check-in up to five days prior to arrival, or check-in at the Front Desk upon arrival to complete the traditional process.
- Upon arrival, once your room is assigned and ready, you can access your room and locate your hotel room number within the digital key feature by tapping the “Unlock Door” button after signing in to your Disney account on the Disneyland app. If you completed online check-in, you can use your digital key to bypass the Front Desk and go straight to your room!
- Tap the “Unlock Door” button and then hold your mobile device against the door lock. A Bluetooth®-enabled device with the latest version of the Disneyland app is required.
You must be signed in to your Disney account on the Disneyland app to access the digital key feature. The Disney account holder who is the primary guest on the reservation is the only guest who can activate the digital key.
While the online check-in service is available at all three Hotels of the Disneyland Resort, the digital key option is currently available at the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. We look forward to introducing digital key to Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel at a later date.
New! More Spots to Mobile Order Snacks and Meals
Time to eat! Mobile order your food and beverages at many restaurants and snack stops throughout the Disneyland Resort, which is easy, convenient and saves you time. More mobile order locations have recently been added: Lucky Fortune Cookery, Schmoozies! and Pacific Wharf Café in Disney California Adventure park; Hungry Bear Restaurant, Refreshment Center and Harbour Galley in Disneyland park, and the Coffee House at the Disneyland Hotel.
New! Mobile Order a Trader Sam’s Souvenir Mug
On Friday, July 30, souvenir mugs inspired by the world-famous Jungle Cruise attraction will be available for a limited time with this special Trader Sam’s Mug Release at the Disneyland Hotel. These uniquely designed mugs can only be purchased via mobile order from 7 a.m. – 11 a.m. that day only on the Disneyland app, while supplies last.
