With free Wi-Fi available in the Walt Disney theme parks and your favorite iPhone, a trip to Walt Disney World, FL, can be an enjoyable well-planned experience.
Dozens of helpful apps are available to help plan for and make the most of a visit to the park. While this list is focused on Florida’s Walt Disney World, many of these apps offer Disneyland versions as well. Of these applications, seven stand out.
1. My Disney Experience
This is Disney’s official app and it is stocked with tons of useful tools and information. Information for dining, fast pass, wait times, and much more are crammed into this powerful and free app. If you happen to have a magic band this app will sync with information tied to the band. (free for iOS and Android)
2. Shop Disney Parks
It’s like having a small version of the Disney Store in the palm of your hand. A great way to shop without having to face crowded stores or long waits to check out. Bonus: this app works outside of the theme parks as well, a great way to find that perfect collectable even if you cannot make the trek to the happiest place on earth. (free for iOS and Android)
3. Lots to Do in Line
This amazing app is based on the book by Meredith Lynn Pierce. There are versions of the app for both the Florida and California parks. A great way to discover and explore the often missed details Disney imagineers have included around the theme parks. Treasure hunts, games and trivia questions related to the queues of several attractions can make waiting in line an enjoyable adventure. ($6.99 iOS; $5.99 Android)
4. Walt Disney World Secrets Notecast
Loaded with pages of trivia, travel tips and tour ideas for your magical visit, this app comes in both a standard and premium version ($1.99 and $3.99). An added benefit, this family of applications does not require an internet connection to enjoy, which is great for those watching their data. Disneyland versions of the app are also available. ($1.99 & $3.99 iOS; $2.99/Gold Android)
