Apple Pay to work at Walt Disney World

Apple's much-anticipated announcement of the iPhone 6 also included something of interest to Disney fans. Apple will be rolling out the new Apple Pay system, which will allow users to pay for purchases with their iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the upcoming Apple Watch. Apple Pay will debut in October, and in December, Apple Pay will work for purchases at Walt Disney World.

A Disney spokesperson said, "Apple Pay makes shopping fast and easy for guests and simplifies the check-out process for our cast members. Our guests are going to love the convenience of Apple Pay, which will bring an easy, secure and private way to make purchases at Disney Store and Walt Disney World Resort."

The system sounds similar to the charging privileges available for Disney resort guests using MagicBands. Guests simply tap their MagicBands on an RFID reader and the purchase is automatically charged to their credit card already on file.

Apple Pay will be available with credit and debit cards from American Express, MasterCard and Visa. Disney won't be the only large retailer accepting the new payment system; Bloomingdale's, Macy's, McDonalds, Walgreens, Subway and Whole Foods will also take advantage of the one-touch process.

One distinct advantage of using Apple Pay will be that merchants will not see a user's "name, credit card number or security code, helping to reduce the potential for fraud," says Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.

The Apple Watch face will have 18 different styles for users to switch between, one of which will be reminiscent of a retro Mickey Mouse watch with Mickey's arms as the watch hands.
