Using my iPhone in the Disney parks is a must.  I am always looking for new apps to make our Disney vacation more productive, easy going, and fun.  I recently was able to review the new Disney World Mobile Guide from TimeStream Software, and I honestly love it.

  • I can use it outside the parks {like here in my own home}.  I like that feature because it helps me with planning.  There are a few Disney parks apps that only work when you are physically in the parks.  That’s great, but when I’m trying to plan and get ideas for my next trip, I can use the Disney World Mobile Guide from home.
  • It’s a HUGE wealth of Disney information.  If you can’t access the internet very well from your iPhone, I highly suggest downloading this app.  I say this because it has ticket information and explanations, pricing, phone numbers for resorts, quick Disney tips, and so much more.  It’s awesome, because sometimes I’m in a place where the connection is slow, and to get on to Chip & Co, or even the Disney website, takes forever.  Here, I can quickly look up advice about meeting characters, tips for traveling with toddlers, and some vacation planning tips when I need them.

  • Park hours and events are easily accessed, and it tells right away if there are Extra Magic Hours and at which park.  It also has a basic listing of that days parade and show times as well.
  • Disney Dining. Honestly, this is one of my favorite parts of this app.  You tap on the “Dining” icon, and it gives you an option to choose a park.  From there, it lists restaurants by section of the parks, a $, $$, or $$$ symbol in front of each restaurant, as well as the meal plans that are accepted.  The BEST thing about the Dining section is the menu option.  You can click on “Menu Items”, and it gives you a list of what you’ll find at that location.
  • Wait Times.  Of course, we all want to know the wait times of our favorite attractions.  Since I haven’t used the app while physcially in the parks, I haven’t anything to compare it to.  But, I’m assuming the wait times are fairly accurate.  The great part about the Wait Times icon, is that it gives you “tips and strategy”.  It tells you when lines could possibly be the longest at that particular attraction, and good strategies for enjoying a particular attraction during parades, EMH, etc.

Overall, I’d describe this app as a mini Disney planning site right on your phone.  All the information you need is there at your fingertips.  It’s a quick loading app, and the graphics are great.   I suggest you download it for your next Walt Disney World vacation!

  1. Last time we were in the parks in Dec 2012, we used an app for the first time – it was the Touring Plans app. It was pretty darn handy and I fell in love with it. However, after downloading the new Disney app, I can instantly tell that I love it more. HOWEVER…I think I’ll want both apps for our next trip because I really liked that the Touring Plans app tells you the crowd level at each park, and the anticipated crowd levels on future dates. (including advice on which park to avoid…) I don’t see Disney’s app ever including info like that. So I think I’ll use be using both apps next time around! Lots of features made our WDW vacation experience easier, but knowing the wait times without having to walk all the way to an attraction saved us a lot of time, walking energy and frustration! Woo-hoo for apps!
