7 Super Helpful Mobile Apps that will Make Your Walt Disney World Visit Much Easier

in Disney, Technology

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)

    FYI, the “Walt Disney World Secrets” app you mention is also available as a book, “The Hidden Secrets & Stories of Walt Disney World.” (Over 300 secrets, with photos) In addition, the Disneyland counterpart is available in the book “Disneyland Details – The Magical Hidden Secrets & Story Elements of Disneyland”, as well as the new “Disneyland In-Depth”. All are available on Amazon.

    I like the PhotoSpotWDW app that helps you find the best places to take photos in WDW. It has Photos by Bill Sferrazza from the Disney Image Makers FB page. I think that they also have a book of their photos. Currently free with in-app purchases.
