Apple Pay coming to Walt Disney World December 24

ApplePay

Get your iPhone 6 configured for the most magical purchase experience on Earth. Walt Disney World will roll out support for Apple Pay at the resort beginning Christmas Eve. Apple Pay is a “contactless payment” service similar to Google Wallet that uses near-field communication (NFC) technology to complete the transaction.

The initial rollout will include purchases of admission media, merchandise, and quick-service food locations across the resort. Table-Service restaurants and Disney World operating partners will be included in a future expansion of the service.

To use the system for purchases, users will hold their Apple Pay devices near the MyMagic+ touch-to-pay reader. That same reader is used when paying with MagicBands.

Disneyland is expected to get Apple Pay in 2015.
