What’s ‘APPening with Disney?

Hi everyone! Today I’d like to talk about Disney apps. I shared my previous post about my favorite WDW apps I wrote back in 2014 yesterday, and I’m going to attempt to give you all an update of fun Disney apps since. My previous post focused on apps to use while at WDW, but today I’ll be talking about all Disney apps in general.

Let’s be honest here, I frequent the Disney games the most out of all the Disney app types.  My girls also enjoy the selection of apps that Disney offers. But that doesn’t mean it’s all fun and games. Disney offers a variety of fun and useful apps. From keeping you ADR’s at a delicious WDW restaurant updated to enjoying Mickey cartoons to enjoying puzzle-based logic games, there’s a little something for everyone. You can check out all the apps that Disney offers either on iOS or GooglePlay. I’ll be discussing our favorite Disney game apps later this week, but today I’d like to focus on some of the main travel apps to help you make the most of your Disney vacations.

The MyDisneyExperience app is now better than ever. Be sure to keep it updated on your device to keep it working properly as this will help load times, etc. You can view and plan most all of your WDW vacation needs with this app. It’s a great tool to research and find all of the attractions, shows, parades, and dining that will delight your family. A good tip if you plan to use it to remember your daily schedule while on vacation is to load the day’s schedule page within the app before you leave for the day and take a screenshot of the schedule. Then, while at the parks, all you have to do is view the screenshot in your photos. No more waiting for the page to load again only to see you’re late for your fastpass! This also helps save data as well as battery life, which we all know is important while in the parks.

There are other fun apps to help plan your Disney vacation trips as well! The Disney Navigator app is made specially for those who plan to set sail on a Disney cruise ship. Once on board the ship, you can connect the app to the ship’s complimentary wi-fi and keep up to date with everything that’s happening on board! From character experiences to dining to deck parties and more, you’ll have all the info you need to plan your cruise days and make the most of it!

Sarah has already mentioned the Disneyland explorer app, but it deserves a second nod. While this app doesn’t provide the same planning capabilities that MyDisney Experience does, it beautifully depicts the fun adventures that can be discovered while visiting Disneyland.

 

 

That’s all for today, but be sure to come back tomorrow for more fun and games!! ~M ºoº
