Teen Disney: Technology in Parks

So, being a teen I often hear how much I am “on my phone” or that I “look at screens too much.” I bet a lot of teens can relate. As much as a part of me recommends to “unplug” while your at Disney and just enjoy the moment, the other part of me wants to post pictures on Facebook and Instagram about how much fun I am having. Also, you can make the case that you need your phone to check park maps and ride times. That is why I am writing this post. If you haven’t heard already there is a way to satisfy both your need to use your phone and the need to keep your parents (or spouse) happy. It’s the My Disney Experience app from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

It looks like this

Using this you can check ride times, book dining, and if you connect your Magic bands, book FastPass+ reservations, too!

Don’t forget about park maps.

 

I highly recommend downloading this before you leave on your trip to check it out and play around with it so you will be a pro by the time you are in the parks.

 

A great app that will keep your parents off your back and keep you happy with phone use. It’s a win win for all.
