Disney World has started testing Smart Speakers in select guest rooms at the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Currently, guests with a Smart Speaker in their guest room will be able to get information including park hours, bus arrival times, the weather, and more from the speakers.
The Smart Speakers are voice activated, and not linked to any personal accounts, including My Disney Experience accounts. No registration or set up is required if you are in a room with a Smart Speaker.
During this test period, if guests are in a room without a Smart Speaker guests can not request a Smart Speaker in their room. According to Disney Guest Services at the Yacht Club, it is not known if guests can opt-out of the test and be in a room without a Smart Speaker if that’s their preference.
If you stay in a room with a Smart Speaker during the test period, after your stay Disney will be requesting your feedback on your use and experience with the device.
Will you be staying at either the Yacht or Beach Club soon? Would you like to be a room with a Smart Speaker? Would you like to see Smart Speakers in all Disney resort guest rooms? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
