Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House will be the first location to accept electronic payment ONLY for all purchases and services. Guests with resort or dining reservations for the pilot period of the cashless test program are now being advised of the change.
As of now, the exact length of this test pilot program is not known, but it will last as long as Disney needs for their research. From there, the program is expected to begin expanding out to other resorts around the property in the coming months, but no order is yet known.
Valid forms of payments will be Magic Bands, credit cards, debit cards, Disney Gift Cards, Disney Rewards Redemption Cards and contact less payments such as Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Google Pay.
The pilot begins February 12, 2018.
