Guests visiting the Walt Disney World Resort can now take advantage of a new mobile application to help improve their vacation experience. The new free official Walt Disney World app is called ‘My Disney Experience’ and is available for download today from the Apple App Store. The app has new features and many improvements, which includes everything from the previous ‘Mobile Magic’ App, such as park hours, wait times, maps, dining and attraction information and more. The app will eventually link to Disney’s NextGen Fastpass system.

After you’ve downloaded the App from the App Store, you’ll see a loading screen.
From here you’ll now be able to see maps, view attractions, shows, parks, make dining reservations, look up wait times and much more.
Wait times and Fast Pass information will only be available after you’ve logged in with your Disney Account. Unlike the old ‘Mobile Magic’, you can see wait times when you’re outside of the parks.
You will be able to search for dining, make reservations and search by your current location inside the parks.
There’s also some fantastic park maps which are really detailed. You can simply tap an attraction, and more information will appear, such as wait times.
‘My Disney Experience’ should work without any problems now that Disney are offering free WiFI inside of the Magic Kingdom. You can read more information here regarding that.
The application works even better on the iPad. Disney have definitely taken advantage of the larger screen. We’ve included some screenshots below when using the app on an iPad
‘My Disney Experience’ is a big improvement on ‘Mobile Magic’, which was a fairly solid App in the first place. There’s many more features to come from Disney’s new mobile application when Disney’s NextGen project is fully integrated into the parks.
Android, Blackberry and Windows versions will be available soon.
You can download the iPhone/iPad App here or search ‘My Disney Experience’.
