Why you should download the Disney World app.
When Disney World reopened in mid-July, droves of fans from every corner of the globe descended on the park like a flock of birds. Can anyone blame them? With health and safety cautions in place to help curtail the spread of COVID-19 and limited capacity, now may be the perfect time to visit.
Everyone knows that a Disney VIP tour is the best way to experience the park, but there’s another entertainment weapon that’s available as part of your arsenal. It’s called the My Disney Experience app and, today, we’re going to look at seven different reasons why you should download it right now.
Plan and Share Your Itinerary
The Disney World app provides you with a detailed map of the entire park. This functionality, plus several options that we’ll get into below, will allow you to create a basic or detailed itinerary of your upcoming visit. You can also share this itinerary through the app’s Family & Friends option, which will allow you to organize your trip with your loved ones more easily prior to reaching the park.
Purchase Theme Park Tickets
The My Disney Experience app wants to make every part of your Orlando vacation as easy as it can possibly be. You can start off by purchasing theme park tickets directly from the app just as you would on Disney’s website. In addition to single-day passes, you can sign up for multi-day passes or even choose a travel package that includes a Disney resort and other items.
Make Your FastPass+ Attractions
First off, it’s important to note that the FastPass+ program is temporarily halted due to social distancing needs caused by the coronavirus. However, since the Disney World app usually allows you to make your initial three FastPass+ selections up to 30 or 60 days in advance, it’s definitely worth mentioning. Once the pandemic threat is over, this will be added back into the application.
Manage Disney Resort Reservations
There are several Disney resorts available, each with their own special features and personality. The app allows you to book Disney hotel reservations and make changes prior to your trip, as long as you do so in the timeframe that was indicated when you signed up. Each resort is very detailed in the app, so you’ll be able to choose the one you like most quite easily.
Check Wait Times and Showtimes
It’s no secret that wait times for attractions at all theme parks can get quite long. Although the current limited capacity due to COVID-19 his helping to alleviate lines in many cases, it’s still best to know how long it’s taking visitors to get into each attraction. This can be accomplished by the real-time monitoring functionality of the Disney World app.
Find Character Greeting Locations
Restrictions are currently in place for character meet-and-greets, but there are still photo opportunities throughout the park. Some of these characters appear somewhat haphazardly in various areas, but many of them have specific greeting locations and times. The app will help you identify those to help you save time and prevent you from missing out on your favorite characters.
Interact with Disney Restaurants
There are so many different Disney restaurants to choose from that it will take multiple visits for you to try them all. The My Disney Experience app makes sorting through these restaurants quick and easy. You can check out their locations, menus, and any special features – such as a character breakfast – that they may include.
