Paying with your credit card may be a thing of the past after a new partnership was recently forged between Disney, Apple and a number of other retailers. Apple has developed a new way to pay and it may just change the way we all shop. It’s known as Apple Pay and it is expected to be used in Disney Stores and Walt Disney World Resort.
Starting this October guests will be able to pay for purchases right from their iPhone 6. The new system uses near field communication (NFC) technology and now you basically have a virtual wallet with all of your credit card information that you need for purchasing right at your fingertips. You don’t even need an app and your phone’s display doesn’t even have to be on. All you have to do is wave your phone near the stores contactless reading device with your finger or thumb on the Touch ID and you’re done. Its that simple.
This partnership comes as no surprise because not only is Disney always on the forefront of modern technology advances, but also because Disney CEO Bob Iger is an Apple board member. Guests can already pay with their MagicBands in this way but now you have your entire wallet at your disposal. Gone are the days of losing your wallet on vacation. All you need to have on you in a park now is your MagicBand and your Cell Phone
