Walt Disney World has been listed on the official webpage of Apple Pay as one of the locations that are expected to begin supporting Apple’s mobile payment platform since its launch in October. That is about to change. Walt Disney World is scheduled to begin accepting Apple Pay on Wednesday, December 24th.
Guests will now be able to tap to pay using their iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus at the resort. At this time most stores, quick service restaurants, bars and ticket sales booths will be included. Disney has stated that nny locations that use portable payment terminals, such as table service restaurants, will be added later.
In addition to Apple Pay, other contactless payment methods, including Google Wallet and RFID-enabled credit cards, will be supported by Walt Disney World through its MyMagic+ technology, which it rolled out last year.
Apple Pay is already supported in the brick-and-mortar locations and the official iOS app of Disney Store, Disney’s specialty store chain.
The Disneyland Resort, which is located in Anaheim, California, is also expected to begin accepting Apple Pay in 2015.
