Technology is a huge part of life these days, almost everyone has a smart phone and they are always with us. This is true of everyday life as well as when we’re on vacation. So, why not take advantage of this technology to make our vacations easier? That’s exactly what the Disneyland app is all about – helping you to have a better and more magical Disneyland experience. Here are the top five reasons we love the Disneyland app.
Maps – The app completely replaces paper park maps! It has everything you need to know – where everything is located including rides, shows, shops and more, height requirements for attractions, descriptions of rides. Use the app to navigate your way through the park, it’s much easier than using a paper map.
Wait Times – This is my favorite part of the app, so much so that I use it at home! You can see up to date wait times for all attractions. There’s nothing worse than walking up to your favorite attraction to find out that it has a 110 minute wait. With the app you can check wait times and see if it is worth it to walk all the way to your favorite attraction or check out something with a shorter wait.
Tickets – U.S and Japan residents can use the app to purchase tickets – then simple present the bar code at the turnstiles for entry into the parks. Annual pass holders can also link their passes to the app to use it to enter the park and to check for blackout date information. Physical tickets and passes are needed for Fastpass distribution and to receive pass holder discounts.
Show times – Want to see a show or parade? Just check the app for start times! No need for a times guide!
Characters – Characters are a big part of any Disney vacation and the app will let you know where you can find all of your favorite characters throughout the parks. Simple scroll to the right at the top of the app until “characters” is selected and icons will appear on the map where characters can be found.
