Top 5 Disneyland App Features
The Disneyland app is the number one tool I recommend to guests visiting the Disneyland Resort. The app has so many useful and fun features! Here are the top 5 you’ll want to take advantage of.
1. Remember where you parked using the new car locator feature – coming later this month to the Disneyland app
This complimentary feature, presented by State Farm, will use Location Services to find and save your parking information at the Mickey & Friends parking structure, Pixar Pals parking structure, Toy Story parking area and Simba parking lot. It works best when you enable Location Services, Bluetooth technology and Notifications on your mobile device, but if you don’t have Location Services on, you can manually enter your parking details. Either way, it’s a helpful reminder at the end of the day!
2. Snap a selfie in augmented reality with new Disney PhotoPass Lenses – available starting today
In addition to unlimited Disney PhotoPass digital downloads, audio tales and the ability to select the next available Lightning Lane entry window, one at a time, for select attractions*, the purchase of Disney Genie+ service now includes access to Disney PhotoPass Lenses in the Disneyland app – some of which are unique to Disneyland Resort! Initially launched at Walt Disney World Resort in collaboration with Snap, these interactive photo moments immerse you in Disney stories and make your park memories even more magical.
3. Save time at select Disneyland Resort shops with merchandise mobile checkout
For a speedier in-store shopping experience at select merchandise locations, you can scan and pay for select items right from your phone using the Disneyland app. Storing a payment option, like a credit card, to your Disney account adds even more convenience. When you’re done, show your QR confirmation code and selected items to a cast member at the designated exit, and you’re all set! World of Disney in Downtown Disney District, Emporium at Disneyland park and Elias & Co. at Disney California Adventure park are among the many shops that offer merchandise mobile checkout.
4. Ask a question using in-app chat
When you have a question, help is just a few taps away! Select the Chat with Us option in the main menu of the Disneyland app, and a cast member will be able to assist you via in-app messaging with inquiries including general theme park information, tickets and ticket linking, account troubleshooting and more. This feature is accessible 24 hours a day and cast members will respond during normal operating hours, between 7:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. PT.
5. Thank a cast member with mobile cast compliments
Since the feature launched in August, guests have left thousands of mobile compliments for our extraordinary Disneyland Resort cast members! If you’d like to express your gratitude, search “cast compliment” in the Disneyland app, choose one of the positive sentiments from the drop-down menu and select the location. You’ll also have the option to enter the date of your interaction and the cast member’s first name and hometown (as it appears on their nametag).
In addition to these magical and helpful tools on the Disneyland app, you can look forward to even more digital convenience this fall, when MagicBand+ arrives at the Disneyland Resort! This wearable technology will offer hands-free convenience and unlock a new dimension of Disney storytelling.
