Several weeks ago now, Disney suspended the ability to pre-order MagicBands for your hotel stay.
But now there are rumblings of Disney switching to mandatory on-line check-in going forward (starting in July?) to avoid unnecessary contact with front desk staff, etc. It makes sense.
But then…what about MagicBands? They are the key into the room. How will guests check in on-line and enter their rooms without MagicBands? Will the use of smart phones to access the rooms become mandatory? But then…not all smart phones are necessarily compatible with the NFC technology. (My phone, for example, doesn’t have NFC.)
I’m sure Disney will work it out…but it does make me wonder if, when folks can pre-order their MagicBands, we can use that as indication they really will be opening up (at least the resorts) soon.
