Disney ‘Mobile Magic’ app now free for Verizon Android devices, coming soon to iPhone

in Disney, Disneyland Resort, Entertainment, Merchandise, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

The only official mobile app that offers Disney theme park wait times, park maps, and more is now available for free for Verizon Android users. And today Disney also announced that the app is finally coming to iPhone, also for Verizon customers.

Mobile Magic originally launched as a subscription-based app for Verizon devices, with its price steadily dropping over time. Now all Verizon customers who use an Android-based mobile phone or other device can download Disney’s application for free from the Android Market.

And beginning in the fall, Disney now has plans to release an iPhone version of the app, aimed at Verizon customers. The iPhone version of the application has been much-requested since the Android one was first released.

Mobile Magic allows guests standing inside Disney’s theme parks at Walt Disney World and Disneyland to access official attraction wait times, check FASTPASS return times, use GPS-enabled park maps, play games, make dining reservations, and more. There are many unofficial mobile apps in existence that claim to accurately display wait times for Disney’s rides using years of collected data, but only Mobile Magic will offer a direct link to Disney’s official list of how long lines are in its parks. It should prove to be a widely-used app.

    Why is this app Verizon exclusive? I would think Disney would just release it straight into the app store for everyone to use. Why would they restrict who can get access to this info on the go? I’m assuming Verizon is paying for this exclusivity, but still, this just seems wrong.

    Of course I am only saying that because I have an iPhone on AT&T. You know, sour grapes and all.

      I think Verizon is a Disney World sponsor and when their contract runs out the app will be released to everybody.

        Don’t feel bad, I do have verizon and I can’t get this app because my phone is too new that the app hasn’t been upgraded to include my phone 🙁

    Do you have an exact release date for the iphone?? I am headed to Disney the first full week of November (6-11) and if the app is available I am getting the iphone..but if not..it’s going to be the android. Would really like to know so I can make my decision and take advantage of some awesome VW deals.
