    iPod Touch App

    Has anyone come up with a Disney World app, free or paid ? I just got my new Touch and would love to have an overview of the parks and resorts to carry along. Photos would be a must and some trivia, naturally. So any of you iPod junkies know of such a resource ? Or have I got a serious case of Blue Sky Fever ???

    Yes! Search for "Disney" in the App Store. A company called UPinPoint.com lists "Mini-Guides" for all Orlando and California parks. They're .99 each. I haven't tried them out myself yet; I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts if you sample one.

    The UPinPoint apps are pretty good. They basically show park maps from an overhead view and let you see where attractions, restaurants, and bathrooms are. For the most part they were accurate (restaurants in Epcot's Japan were mixed up). There are limited descriptions of the restaurant menus built in, and if you have a wi-fi connection it will let you bring up the appropriate AllEars.net menu page for it (does not seem to work over a 3G connection). Attractions also get brief descriptions, any restrictions, length, and Fastpass info. You can then click to go to wikipedia or AllEars.net for more info if you're on wi-fi. They also have a search function to find something quickly.

    Thanks for the info. Sounds like ninety-nine cents a park is a good deal, even if you're just sitting at home wishing you were there.

    Ok... so my curiosity (and DisneyDame's favorable review) got me to pull the trigger this morning right before work. I purchased Epcot. Looking forward to exploring some of my favorite attractions (if only virtually). Now where do I get my Mickey Bar ?

    I love the .99 cents park maps. I look at them when I'm bored especially since I know most of the parks like the back of my hand, but having the map is wonderful.

    If anyone has the MK mini-map and you haven't updated it yet from the app store, you are definitely going to want to do it. The people who made it have released an update, which allows for GPS tracking so that you can find your way to your next destination.

    Hey Everyone

    They have just added one for Dining at Disney. It gives you every single menu for every restaurant across property at World along with the prices on most items.

    Re: iPod Touch App

    I was just reading about some of the Disney apps the other day... kinda makes me want to get an iPhone... I probably won't, but it's a nice thought.

    Re: iPod Touch App

    DH just added the Disney app for attraction times for his iPhone. We checked it out at Epcot yesterday and today. Variations occurred for several attractions, but they weren't more than 5-10 minute off; more and less than the electronic board was reporting.

    I bought the restaurant app several weeks ago for my iPod Touch.
