AdventureThis week I want to turn to something many of us are very familiar with: our phones!

We all know how trusty they can be whether we are checking our email, Facebook, Twitter, or any apps that get us through each day.

My tip will be focusing on the “FREE” Walt Disney World® app called “My Disney Experience” mobile app.

Now that Walt Disney World® has added Wi-Fi throughout the entire resort, navigating and controlling your entire vacation is literally at your fingertips.

Every time I make a trip to Walt Disney World®, I am constantly using the app (even when I think I know it all).

If you have planned your entire trip through Disney, just log into your account on the app, and you will be able to see all of the reservations you have made.

This app is such a great tool and will keep you and your family completely organized on your vacation.

Here is a list of many functions the “My Disney Experience” app provides:

  • GPS-enabled map: Use a GPS map that will give you a glimpse into the entire property, as well as any park you may be visiting that My Disney Experience App 2day.
  • Wait Times and Showtimes: Check wait times for every attraction as well as showtimes for fireworks and parades.
  • Character Greeting: Check wait times and locations to meet your favorite Disney characters.
  • Dining: Check dining reservations you have made or make dining reservations if you have not done so already. Also, browse restaurant menus from any restaurant on property.
  • My Plans: This will allow you to keep any reservations and activities organized.
  • Family & Friends: Share your plans with anyone you wish.
  • Manage: Manage your Disney Resort reservations, park tickets, MagicBands, and cards.
  • FastPass+: The newly added FastPass+ will allow you and your party to manage your FastPass+ experiences.

The “My Disney Experience” app will be your best friend throughout your entire trip and make your experience a little more magical!

How many of you have downloaded the “My Disney Experience” mobile app on your phone? Did you find the app to be helpful while on vacation? Comment below!

    I had the chance to use this app on my last trip and found it very helpful. I used it so much that I drained my phone battery pretty low halfway through the day.

    Great tip and have an awesome day!!

  2. Yes we love the app and the Magic Bands. Had a chance to use them last November. We are staying at the Wilderness Lodge in May. Already ordered the Magic Bands, Dinner reservations, Annual Passes and have everything on the phone. We are waiting for March 11 to select our fast passes.

    Awesome app! Began using it last year and haven’t stopped! Love browsing the restaurant menus when trying to decide if we’re going to experience something different than our favs! So much on the app that it does take a little playing to learn all the features. Even use it at home to get ‘my Disney Fix’ when u can’t make it to the parks! 🙂
